Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: elNopalero on 02-28-2013

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.

2.31/5  rDev -37.4%
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. (375 characters)

Copper color, darker than most IPAs. Frothy cream colored head.

Smells bordering on a red/amber ale with hints of wet paper.

The hops are strong up front, but fairly easy drinking for a higher alcohol IPA.

Smooth enough, but pretty flat. Somewhat astringent. Giving me some lingering hop breath.

With an abundance of good IPAs these days, it's tough to be noticeable in a good way and this one doesn't really stand out from the pack for me. (446 characters)

Pours a deep copper amber.

The malt is at the forefront here with a graham cracker amber ale flare. The hop profile is more centered around a clean bitter finish. Not a juicy aromatic hop explosion we've grown used to. 10 years ago this would have been considered a hoppy take on an English IPA. Now I don't know what it is, but it's a good IPA that's not trying to rock worlds. (380 characters)

I love this beer, it is not too hoppy.I am into lighter styles but enjoy a IPA that is drinkable and doesn't feel like its weighing me down, this is just that. It is easy to drink and has a light feel yet still has all the characteristics of a well rounded IPA. A break from the norm this brewery is one to keep an eye on. (322 characters)
