Let's be honest. The people over at Revolution brewing got this shit nailed down tight. They know how to make a great beer, and do so , regularly. All of the episodes of the hero series I have tried has been at least very good. This is no exception.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into an IPA glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear golden orange. Moderate amount of bubbles and a solid finger of white head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop driven aroma with a scent of citrus and pine. Upfront citrus hop scent of orange peel, grapefruit, tangerine, mango, and lemon with pineapple. Earthy hop scent of pine resin and grass. Malt hints of caramel, grains, and cracker along with yeast. Also some hints of honey sweetness. A very nice juicy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and earthy hop forward taste with notes of citrus fruit and pine. Citrus hop notes of orange peel, mango, grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon with some pineapple. Earthy hop notes of pine resin and grass. Background malt notes of caramel, cracker, and grains with some yeast. Some sweet notes of honey. A really good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and fairly oily with a drying finish.

Overall: A very good IPA. Good juicy and piney hop flavor with a moderate body.

On draft downtown--this is a good beer, but not as great as Anti-Hero. Amongst the Heroes that I've tried, I think it fits somewhere between Galaxy and Mosaic. Local Hero does not seem to have a big signature flavor, which isn't always a bad thing for a drinkable IPA.
