Poured into a pint glass from the can. Orange-y, somewhat hazy amber color.

All grapefruits in the nose at first, then more bread-y.

Up front bitterness from the hops, a bit of sweetness in the finish.

This is called "Irregardless IPA" because on the can it says "Irregardless of whether or not you like hops, this IPA will not disappoint." I disagree. It's quite bitter, and if you're not a fan of hops, you're not going to be a fan of this. I also disagree with the use of the word 'irregardless', but I suppose I can make an exception for alliteration in this case.

Just try it. New England thinks they have the IPA game on lockdown, they don't.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #86 (Mar 2014):

Grapefruit, Bitter, Catty, Grassy

A bit of an onslaught of hops in this can. Flavorful mix of old-school hops, like Nugget and Centennial, and the more current or trendy high-alpha-acid varieties Citra and Bravo all make for a beautiful mashup of hop complexities. Sure to please the hopheads.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a beige color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, hops. Taste is hoppy, but less so than the smell, a mild bitterness, some citrus, just a bit of pine. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking and solid beer.

A - A finger's worth of active lush light-to-medium colored khaki froth comprised of medium sized chunky bubbles... Solid retention... Turns a bit creamier as it settles and leaves a full veil of lacing and moderate collar... The color is a slightly pale muted copper... Largely still with just a light bit of moderate paced carbonation throughout...

S - An intoxicating hop forward aroma... Starts with a kiss of sweet citrus and tropical fruit... This is backed up by a sturdy mix of earthy and piney hops... The plethora of hops sits a top a rock solid malt base highlighted by cracker, biscuit and some light caramel sweetness... Text book for the style and extremely well executed...

T - Hop forward... The the piney resinous earthy hops take the lead... Next comes the malt base which is dialed up in intensity a bit... Loads of biscuit and caramel... The light sweet citrus components linger a bit beneath the surface and add an extra layer of depth and complexity... Excellent balance... Again, an excellent representation of the style...

M - Medium bodied... Sleek... Sturdy... Light to moderate carbonation... Crisp... Even and consistent... Goes down easily sip after sip...

D - This is my initial introduction to Liquid Hero, a local brewery which I haven't had the opportunity to experience until now... I'm very impressed with the overall craftsmanship... I'm most impressed by the depth and array of hops present on both the aroma and on the palate... Solidly above average in all facets... Nothing world class or remarkable, just really really good... Rather quaffable and refreshing... Overall, color me impressed... I'm eager to try more of Liquid Hero has to offer...
