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.

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.

This pours a light tan straw color. Light hop aroma which just doesn’t excite me. Dial up the hops—or at least give me more of a hop presence. Curiously, I picked up a spiced curry note on the flavor. Turmeric in particular. It has a pleasing bitterness with a piney finish. Perfectly decent IPA but it’s going to get lost in a sea of excellent IPAs out here.

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.
