Served on-tap in a Shaker pint glass at Miller's (Chicago, IL).
A: Beautiful golden-light amber with 1-finger of oatmeal-colored frothy head with good retention and abundant lacing.
S: A delicious mix of tropical fruit, pine, resin, and grapefruit and orange citrus with a nice floral touch. THe malt background is crisp and mostly 2-row pale malt with a touch of light crystal candy caramel sweetness in the nose. It's a little too cold to fully appreciate the nose but it is a complex mix for sure.
T: A very fresh flavored crisp IPA with a lush fruity character overall. The hoppiness is varied yet cohesively presents citrus notes of grapefruit, lemon, and orange with pine resin and more berry and tropical fruit notes with a nice floral finish. The malitness is not very sweet but provides enough malt character to backdrop the wide array of hop flavors. Bitterness is a little lower than medium. Alcohol is well-hidden. A very nice all-around IPA.
M: The mouthfeel is a great blend of lush hoppiness with dry, extremely drinkable IPA.
The carbonation is low-medium but the dry finish is excellent.
O: Anti-Hero is a really good IPA that really pushes the limits of drinkabilty upwards while hitting an array of excellent hop notes while providing a solid if uninteresting malt character. Maybe a little experimentation with malt varieties may up this beer, but it is good but feels like it is at its max. A really good American IPA and well-worth to take a shot at.
