Review: Revelation Little Blue Reflectors IPA with Simcoe and Citra Hops

Another Canadian-only exclusive over at Quality Beer Store in Winnipeg - Revelation Ale Works' Little Blue Reflectors IPA with Simcoe & Citra hops.

I picked this up a day or two after it arrived at Quality Beer Store, making it (now) approx a month or more old by now. 6.8% ABV

Appearance: Moderate clarity, light haze, reminiscent of a classic West Coast-style IPA from way back in the day. Good amount of an amber/caramel colour to it. Thick amount of off-white head on top that diminishes rather quickly, good layered lacing on the side of the glass.

Aroma: Deeeecent. It's citrusy with a hint of pineapple, lemon and another citrus I just can't describe. Mild leafy hop presence, hint of grassiness, very clean, hint of pine but very smooth so far.

Taste: A tad bitter with a rich citrus presence to it, mildly sweet, notes of caramel, leafy, floral and tad bitter hops to it. Easy to drink, tingles the palate and leaves behind a bit of a leafy hop presence at the end. Smooth

Overall Thoughts: I definitely get a tad bit of a booziness from this beer but it's smooth with a bit of a leafy, floral and bitter hop presence. Nice West Coast-style IPA.
