Anti-Hero IPA
Revolution Brewing Compnay, Chicago
---can to pint glass---

Appearance
Darker amber, very clear. Quarter inch ivory head, good lacing.

Smell
OMG, this smells great! Grapefruit, orange peel, lots of pine! Glorious!

Taste
Good amount of bitter right off the bat, hints at the grapefruit, carmel malts shine through the spicy hops.

Mouth-feel
Good carbonation feel, bitter and hop stick in your mouth in between sips. Good burps!

Overall
I really enjoyed this beer. The smell gives high hopes, but isn’t as hoppy as one would hope. Definitely worth trying another... just waiting for the hotel bartender...

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving Type - Can

Appearance - Yellow with a tan tint, 1/2 foamy head with nice lacing.

Smell - Huge pine aroma mixed with some grapefruit. Malts, lemons, sugars, a little floral note with some spices.

Taste - Starts out a with a big pine and grapefruit blast. Some added spices give it a herbal green tea-like flavor. Orange and lemon is also a noticeable flavor. Slight caramel malt backbone.

Mouthfeel - Tongue gets a lot of pine and grapefruit at first sip. Palate gets more herbal flavors, spices, and caramel malts. Aftertaste is herbal, piney and a malty.

Overall - Nice beer. Plenty of hops to make a big pine and grapefruit flavor. Really easy to drink. A little simple in its flavor but its really done well for what it is. Well worth giving a try.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Pours a finger of eggshell head, body is a light orange amber with the slightest haze, a nice ring of lace after each quaff.

Smell - Slight pine, juicy citrus and light tropical, slight herbals of basil - really nice juicy hops smells.

Taste - Wow, great fresh pine with really bright citrus, mostly grapefruit with light orange and tangello, a really nice herbal basil flavor - really bright clean full flavors here.

Mouthfeel - Medium mouthfeel, nice full flavors, juicy and slick, almost medium carb is silky smooth with some really nice crisp and bright edges around the sides of the tongue. A great mouthfeel, very satisfying. Finish is slightly dry and bitter with grapefruit pith, but juicy in the mouth corners.

Overall - Really an excellent ipa, great bright and full flavors here. The slightest citrus sweetness to balance, but the bold pine and citrus to provide complex flavorful pucker. A must try ipa in my opinion - a great ipa that absolutely holds it's own, a must try.
