3.88/5 rDev -9.1%

On tap at the World of Beers in C-Bus, OH. Nice golden amber color with no visible head when the pint reached our table. BIG fruity/citrusy hops on the nose... very bright, very nice nose. I use some Citra in my homebrewing, and this was definitely chock full of Citra. Bitter blast up front (very refreshing), with nice citrus flavors and a really clean finish. The was a big piney note on the mid-palate. Really nice and fresh. Medium body on this IPA, and just a bit of an oily feeling on the tongue. I was very happy with Anti-Hero, and Citra Hero did not disappoint. I look forward to trying more Revolution.

4.21/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
650ml bottle, no bottling date. Poured into an unlabeled snifter 7/25/2014.
A- Slightly cloudy burnt orange body. One finger white head. Fine retention, not much lacing.
S- Grapefruit and pineapple mixed in with caramel and bread. Almost simplistic in its description, but this is done very well in terms of the balance between the fruit and bread aromas, with both camps being quite strong here.
F- Pineapple and mango in the front, with a slightly grassy but sweet caramel and biscuit notes in the middle, finishing off with a nice slightly tart grapefruit bite and bitterness. Very well-executed, tasty stuff.
M- A notch below medium body; not lacking in flavour but does feel a bit thin than I'd like; not as sticky as I'd expect from a 7.5% IPA; in fact it feels a bit thinner than some APAs. Dry, refreshing finish that is slightly overwhelmed by the bitterness on the backend, but not enough to be a major drawback.
O- Very nice citra IPA, well-executed in terms of balancing the aromatic hops and the sweet malt base. It's outstanding in all facets and I would recommend it if it's found on the shelf. Although I'd certainly like it if it came in cans, but Anti-Hero fulfills that niche fairly well enough!
