Notes/Commercial Description:
Immodest hop additions throughout the brewing process characterize this distinctive, amber colored NorCal fashioned India Pale Ale. With an ABV of 7.2% galvanized by a total of 64 IBU’s, we were obliged to create an IPA that would distinguish itself as immortal amongst the common, and with an unforgettable name. We believe we have done just that. Heroine India Pale Ale. A pint of help is on her way.

22oz bottle into my FW snifter glass
Notes from 06/22/14

A: Lightly hazed burnt sienna color. Has that orangey amber look to it with a half finger width of khaki suds frothing over top. Modest hang time with just a few choppy dots and swaths of lace left behind.

S: Heavy spiced hops with grassy herbals and a light tropical fruit note. It has this passion fruit and guava thing going on which is nice. Very spiced up however. I get some ephemeral biscuit malt underneath. Fairly nice and hoppy aromas.

T: Taste has a firm bready malt biscuit there but with equal parts hops to balance. I get a good mix of grass with spice as well as some grapefruit and tropical spiced guava fruit. There is a low amount of actual bitterness with a touch of astringent pucker at the finish. The alcohol is really well masked making this nicely balanced and rather tasty.

M: The mouth feel is creamy on the tongue with a moderate to lighter body. Some light astringency constricts the palate a touch. Good drying at the finish which is rather clean overall.

D: This IPA won’t blow minds with its hefty toasted malt bill but it has some nice hoppy notes with a bit of spiced tropical flare to it. All in all some good balance across the boards. Would definitely have another but probably not something I will be searching out when in NorCal.

2.3/5  rDev -35.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: A clear pale ale color, foamy khaki head that is thick with decent lacing.

Nose: Not much going on, simple hops. Not impressive.

taste: Coppery, metallic, smooth hop oils, well balanced with a malty finish. Medicinal all of the way through and watery, but clean.

Notes: Malt too unbalanced to be good, or to stand out. Mouthfeel is weak and unoriginal.
