A golden beer with a nice grapefruit and pine aroma. The taste is bitter but balanced with done citrus flavors and malt sweetness. The can I had was a little low on carbonation. The head faded quickly and didn't leave any lacing. It was a really tasty beer though.

Grapefruit, pine, orange, and a oily mouthfeel. The smell for the most part, follows the nose, pine and maybe a sweet malt smell.

12oz can, stamped "Filled: 01/04/2017"
A - brilliant hazed tangerine color with a tall frothy white head that leaves thick lacing down the glass as it slowly dissipates
S - zesty citrus, earthy pine, caramel malt
T - hop forward, very zesty and piney with orange and a bit of grapefruit, a bit earthy, a bit of tropical mango, nice malt backbone of sweet caramel and faint honey
M - medium body, resinous hop oils, finishes dry moderately bitter
O - nice utilization of some Michigan grown hops. It's always fun to try a beer from the Hero series.

Yellow orange body, clear, big fluffy white head, lots of lacing. Nose is cracker, pine, pity and zest. The flavor is toward the grapefruit, peach flesh and mild biscuit malt. Dry close. A refreshing, bright IPA.

Local-Hero and the Pine Ranger ready to ride again! No kidding, this is a pine and spruce forward IPA which - much like a superhero movie with a ton of starts vying for attention - somehow gives plenty enough space for all its' components to shine. Although to be fair the dominant side is within the juicy hop notes that come boldly to the fore.
