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.

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.

The body is a deep, ruddy-brown color. Not much of a head forms, just a trace of tan, bubbly foam. It does leave some pretty nice looking lacing on the sides of the glass.

The nose is very malty, with aromas of caramel, brown sugar, and some molasses. Piney hop notes, with some floral tones as well. A little touch of grapefruit sweetness is also there.

Malt forward again, with flavors of caramel and toasted bread. There is also some vague, apple fruit flavors. Light citrus hops, with a floral essence. Piney hops with some juicy grapefruit come up towards the end, and the finish has a dry and bitter finish, with a red ale essence.

The finish has some of the qualities of a red ale that I don't like (a weird mixture of malt sweetness and pine bitterness), but that is easily forgiven. An IPA to try out if you're looking for something different, as this is kind of a Red Ale/Amber/IPA hybrid. Pretty easy drinking, and satisfying.

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.
