This beer is very very boring and has a quite unpleasant soapy character to it. I went into a Binny's in the suburbs of Chicago and ask for an IPA that had a lot of citrus character and the general manager suggested Anti-Hero. Clearly that guy needs to try more of the products in his store. Hardly any citrus flavor, lots of soap, pine and malted cereal. But the can design is pretty cool I guess....

Appearance: Anti Hero pours a crystal clear deep golden color and is topped with a ¾” of white head that dissipates into a thin layer
Smell: The aroma of this beer is a tasty smelling blend of citrus and pine hops the has me really wanting to like this brew.
Taste: The flavor of this beer follows right in line with the aroma and has a tasty but not over powering blend of pine and citrus hops. I taste grassy hops and malt in the background to put it over the top for a good brew.
Mouthfeel: This is a medium bodied beer that is easy to drink with a good blend of hops and malt.

This is my current go-to craft can. Love the artwork on the cans as well (i admit, my eyes are pleased when i look at one of these, and perhaps i am over-rating, but too bad. i like this beer a bunch). anyways, the review: the one thing that has always drawn me to this beer, especially in canned form, is the fresh taste of the hops. this beer has made me a firm believer that craft beer really needs to be canned more often, because i have yet to find an IPA in brown glass that tastes this refreshingly good with very few exceptions. i think that between blocking the light and the air, this canned IPA really lights up my palette with joy! that being said, i have been impressed with the half-acre and two brothers canned pales as well, but this is hands down my favorite of the canned craft pales in the IL/Chicago area.

A: Frothy white head, good retention. Pale, clear gold.

S: Citrus, with a good hop nose.

T: Well-balanced, but could use more hop flavor. A little too subdued. Residual bitterness.

M: Clean and smooth.

O: A nice clean IPA, but nothing memorable.

A - A coppery yellow beer with a persistent head. Looks inviting.

S - A good American hop kick, just as an IPA should kick

T - Another good dose of hop bitterness, classic for an American IPA.

M - Goes down smooth. I'll have another, bar keep!

O - A good representative of the American style. Leave me alone, I'm drinking.
