Revel rounded out their new core range at the lower ABV end with the release of a well-crafted session ale in spring 2021. For a brewery where the limited releases – and even some of the staples – happily stray into the 7 percent ABV-and-beyond stratosphere, introducing a session ale seems reasonable enough.
Fortunately, despite all the session ale connotations, this one is packed with as much hoppy goodness as modern physics permits. You’d only have to walk past it to get a strong aroma of pineapple and passionfruit. The body is lean and smooth but there is a decent bitterness at the end to keep this anything but an afterthought.
