22oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a rather pale, peachy golden color with moderate haze and a short cap of white foam that shows good staying power.
S - Smells like fresh grapefruit juice...really nice. Grapefruit peel, mild sugary sweetness, Not very complex, but really inviting.
T - Thankfully, follows the aroma very well. Again, grapefruit dominates - almost like a fresh squeezed glass of juice. Mid-level bitterness that still gives the grapefruit impression more than it does any kind of hoppy bitterness. Very faint caramelly malt at the base, a little bit of sugary malt sweetness.
M - Thinnish body, slightly watery in feel, prickly mid-level carbonation, faint malt sweetness.
O - Simple, straight forward without a lot of complexity, but tons of citrusy grapefruit character makes this a very solid IPA. I love the fresh grapefruit juice character from beginning to end - really pretty satisfying.

A-Clear amber, not much carbonation and a one finger head.
S-Good deal of bready malt. Rather heavy on it. Some light citrus.
T-Starts with bread and malt, some spice, slight citrus and a tad bit of grass.
M-Lighter, not much carbonation, crisp finish.
O-Had at the brewpub, compared to Anti-Hero I thought it was a let down too malty for my tastes.
Serving type: on-tap
