What the brewer says

“Revo­lu­tion No. 009 is a show­case for five ‘pub­lic-do­main’ hops from the United States and Ger­many, of­fer­ing a fresh twist on some not-so-fa­mil­iar fa­vorites.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Soft fruity hop­pi­ness, or­ange, hints of ap­ple with an un­der­ly­ing grainy Pils malt char­ac­ter. Rem­i­nis­cent of a hoppy pale lager. The retronasal presents a touch of lime and grass.” Fla­vor: “Burst of hops up front. Clean toasted malt char­ac­ter plays sup­port­ing role for pine, or­ange, pineap­ple hops notes. Just the right amount of bit­ter, medium min­eral fin­ish, very dry.” Over­all: “On the lighter side of the cat­e­gory (think ses­sion IPA or pale ale), but very pleas­ant, clean, and well­bal­anced. A re­fresh­ing beer that isn’t thin and wa­tery, but isn’t over­whelm­ing and palate-wreck­ing ei­ther. Great hot-weather beer. The crisp­ness made this a very wel­com­ing ses­sion beer.”
