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.

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.

Tasty flagship from a worthy new brewery - combining the coppery-malty East Coast style of IPA with the hoppy character of the West Coast. This beer reminds me somewhat of Victory's Hop Devil, but with the creamier feel favored by West Coast brewers.

Pours a clear coppery with a moderate head that falls quickly, leaving decent lacing. The aroma is sticky hoppy with a citrusy edge over a somewhat milky character, like a creamcicle. The flavor is rick and hoppy - resiny and sticky, bitter like a blood orange, with a firm but not assertive malt backbone and an icecream feel on the tongue. The bitterness is confined mostly to the attack, with only a little prickle on the top of the throat on the finish.

Pours out amber with orange around the edges. The head is off white and smaller than expected, there is plenty of visible carbonation. Lace retention is nice, sticks around for a while.

Pale and caramel malts start the smell. Some spice and citrus follow with a hint of pine. Not really West Coast, or NorCal as described, but still smell like a pretty good IPA.

Interesting, almost roasted caramel start, quickly followed by citrus. It's more of an orange peel than a fruit citrus. Some grassy hops and pine aftertaste show up. There is a spicy note to this, the good gentleman at Healthy Spirits thought it might be Rye. I think he might be right. Whatever it is that adds that spicy kick, it's a nice addition. Carbonation is a little heavy for the thickness of the beer, but not terrible.

No real complaints. I may grab one again, wouldn't be bummed if I saw it on tap. But also not going to make the list of favorites. Sad I missed their brewery night during SF Beer Week. They got the time wrong online and I chose another meet the brewer night.

4/28/13. I actually got a reply on my Instagram post of the beer from the brewer. No rye, the spice comes from the hop blend. Love how many brewery's are on Instagram, beerporn everywhere!
