4.1/5 rDev -0.5%
Thanks to PHboiler for this one. Poured cold from the can a translucent coppery orange to a sun king shaped pint with a full finger big bubbled slightly off white long lasting head
Aroma of pine resin and orange rind (?)
Light bodied, creamy, subtle bitter to the tongue on the first sip but it's not a huge hop bomb. Nice malt balance on this one, and almost sweet.

Appearance: pours with a deep strong orange color. Poured with a little less then a finger of head. Head dissipated and was not present while drinking. No lacing on the edges of the glass. Light carbonation while drinking.
Smell: The front is a nice complex mixture of pine and caramel heavy malt base. A saturated citrus hop presence comes through strong as well. Pretty standard accents coming through here for an single IPA with a strong malt base, but it is done very well.
Taste: Piney front tingles on the palate. A much sweeter some hop presence rolls in then I expected from the aroma of the beer. The finish is a slightly sugary malt body. Definitely on the sweet side, but again very well done and a very drinkable brew.
Mouthfeel: A sugary resin feeling is left behind on the palate.
Overall: Very solid Chicago IPA. This one has a much strong malt base then other IPAs from Chicago I've had. The hops are a pleasant amount of spicy that keep you on your toes. Good stuff for sure.

12 oz canned on July 9th, 1 week old.
A: Copper/orange color with haze. Very nice lacing and retention. Some floaties, but that doesn't bother me.
S: Oranges, freshly cut lawn, lemon, grains.
T: A nice example of an American IPA. Grassy, citrusy bitterness leads way to a light malt backbone.
M: Dry, nice carbonation.
O: Very solid. I like it. Cans forever.

Anti-Hero is a nice IPA that I picked up on my latest trip to IL. It pours with a slightly hazy amber hue and sports a fluffy cream cap that has OK retention and leaves bits of lace behind.
The beer's nose leans toward pine scents that ride on top of caramel. In the mouth, there's a strong bitter bite that doesn't reach overpowering levels. A bit of sweet malts cut the bitterness. A lingering pine and citrus finish rounds things out. A sticky and oily body with a tad too much fizz rounds out the experience.
Overall, this is a good IPA that stands out from the pack just enough to get noticed.

bad poor - no head, no retention, and a little lacing but it disappears quickly.
floral, piney, and resinous - men's cologne-esque
doesn't taste as happy as it smells, but still taste like hops. more fruity and citrusy in taste.
feels weak on the tongue, not much body. "miller lite" ipa.
good but not great, drinkable, "a lite ipa". a good every day ipa.

Pours a lightly hazy orange-ish to yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, orange citrus hops. In the taste, mellow orange citrus hops, with a small dryness. A small hop bite, and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry orange citrus hop in the aftertaste. Nice IPA, mellow hops, but balanced.
