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.

A - Clear gold body. Large white head leaves little lacing but never fully fades.
S - Dank hops, but a little too funky. Light sweet malt, Spent grains.
T - Light hops, light malt body. A little heat/spiciness. It's crisp and clean.
M - Medium body, low carb.
O - I was intrigued to try this (based on the marketing of local hops, etc) It's a good beer, but not one I will revisit.
