The aroma doesn't punch you in the face, but the flavors make up for it with a explosive kick in the mouth. Like most of the limited-run Hero offerings, this is a step up from the Anti-Hero: copper-gold, candied-floral, buoyantly bitter, and cleanly citric, both popping and coating the mouth with a complex of sophisticated hop flavor that finishes sharply, almost puckeringly clean. It's low on effervescence, but Local-Hero compensates with a light, smooth mouthfeel. While it certainly might be a case of mind influencing matter, it definitely tastes particularly fresh, if not redolent of the Lake Michigan-adjacent terroir.

It's doesn't quite reach the heights of Three Floyds Yum Yum, but I think it actually compares favorably —and would really be a great session IPA in a six-pack formulation.

Aroma is light tropical fruit, citrus and slightly perfumed. The flavor is tropical fruit/pineapple, malts, citrus, fruit and a slightly odd heat in the finish.

Don't get why people like this. I think it's really unusual, and in a bad way.
