An extra in a trade with BigStein88. Thanks George!

Canned 12/11/13. A little over two months old.

Must be a popular brewery name in one of the three urban centers of American Communism, Chicago. The Anti-Hero name, art of a military-uniformed, hop-faced general with red stars all over him, and the typical Communist raised fist (albeit in hop green) all seem to add to the political statement. ..which this reviewer found highly off-putting. But freedom of expression is still part of our Constitutional system, so I'll try not to let all that affect my review.

Poured from the 12 oz. can into a Harpoon IPA glass.

a: Clear dark gold with a finger thick white head which receded to thin even surface foam and patchy lacing.

s: Mild pine.

t: Pine hops forward over a medium malt base. Dry finish.

m: Medium, good body.

o: An above average, tasty middle strength IPA. If it was available in my area and not too expensive I might be tempted to buy more. But I'll exercise MY right to freedom to buy and pass.

A - Clear gold with a finger of white foamy head, medium thin lacing.
S - Awesome aroma! Tons of lime, some peach, a little pineapple, some light hints of malt, orange, a little grass.
T - This thing has a great amount of lime flavor to it, lighter tropical notes in the background, pineapple being the most prominent, a nice semi-sweet paler malt base, a tad of crisp granny smith apple in the end.
M - Clean, crisp, medium feel.
O - This thing is outstanding. I wish I would have gotten more. This thing is bursting with flavor, its extremely balanced between malt and hops.
