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.

Brown suger notes on the smell. Mellow hop notes lined with a hint of sweetness.

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.

an apparently widely distributed but largely underwhelming ipa in the northern california area. its got a little more red caramel type malts to it, beefing it up a bit in body and alcohol, but the hops are irrelevant here. its not floral or aromatic, and it doesnt finish bitter or juicy, it just sort of wallows in mediocrity on the hop front. the beer is well made though, has no immediately apparent flaws, but comes across as a fine execution of an unimpressive recipe. i liked the other beers i had from these guys a lot better, and think this one fails to distinguish itself in a crowded west coast ipa scene, its big without being dank and resinous, not one i would choose again. also a bit filling for summer, but i can see the appeal for some.
