Pours a clear medium golden with copper highlights and a frothy half inch ivory head that dissipates slowly, leaving sheets of lacing.
Fresh cut grass, resin, pine, and grapefruit form the initial aroma. Very grassy. Pine and herbal hops accent a light caramel malt backbone.
Flavor reveals more citrus character at the base. Tangerine and grapefruit are accented by notes of mango, peach, and papaya, becoming resiny mid palate, with pine fading into a fairly bitter, earthy finish. Caramel malt serves only to tie the hop profile together.
Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation and a slight astringent bite.
Very good ipa. Enough bitterness to counter the fruity undertones, and fairly high hop complexity. Resiny, grassy, and citrusy all in one sip. For my personal tastes, it's a touch too bitter.

I've had this a few times on tap at the brewpub. Reviewing at the time of drinking a can at home, but with both can and draft very fresh in mind. Poured into a FFF Teku.
A: Dark golden in color with 1 finger of white frothy head that reduces fairly quickly and leaves little lacing.
S: Citrusy up front, with a combo of citrus and pine as the lingering aroma.
T: I get a lot of citrus fruits up front, and a very mild pine aftertaste. There isn't a huge bomb here, but a very enjoyable palate.
M: Carbed well to style, leaves a slightly dry finish.
O: I always enjoy an Anti Hero when I have the chance. This is a very solid IPA that should not be overlooked. If I had to compare this to any beer, I would say it is more similar to Jai Alai than any other beer I've had.
