What's on the Bottle/Website: "Like taking a bath in orange sunshine, Citra Revenge delivers a wallop of liquid lupulin love. In your face.

Where distributed: As of January 2018, Revision Brewing distributes to nine states. See if they distribute to your area!

Appearance (5%): Poured slightly hazy golden into a pint glass. White head. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Mix of orange, tangerine, and perhaps some grapefruit and/or berry. 4.5/5

Taste (40%): Tropical grapefruit, tangerine, and orange from start to finish. Complementing hop bitterness. Aftertaste mostly orange and tangerine. Drinks far easier than the stated 9% ABV. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, good carbonation. Dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An excellent to outstanding IPA. I'll be highlighting some Revision Brewing beers for the next few reviews, and this one was a lovely start. I loved the tropical orange and tangerine here, as promised. Easy drinking and worth the price. Revision is off to a great start here with me. 4.5/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.463/5
