Anti-Hero pours a copper color, with a big lacing head. Nice simple hoppy aroma. Flavor, has a full hoppy flavor, nice bitterness, hints of dryness, and a hint of sweetness near the end. Good body and feel. Overall, a full and tasty IPA that is also very drinkable.

Grabbed some of these to take to the face on the one year anniversary of the Election of the Great Cheetoh #45.
Thought the can was fitting, and that a tart IPA may wash the lingering taste of acrid dismay out of my mouth.
As the beer was hazy, my mind went to Patrick Swayze. Come to find out, this brew pairs well with a viewing of Red Dawn (the original-the reboot sucked). WOLVERINES!!!!!

Appearance: This flagship IPA from Chicago’s masterful Revolution pours a clean amber, with a thick head of off-white suds. A fence-wall of lace.

Aroma: Crisp citrus and tropical fruit hops. Enticing.

Taste: Brisk and bitter citrus rind, with caramel malts pulling up the rear. A distinctly modern American IPA that hits all the right spots, coating the tongue with tons of hops. Delicious and pretty well top-notch for the style.

This was less then 6 weeks old but it was completely devoid of hop aroma. The bitterness was there of course but the unbalanced malt flavor and aroma was just too much. I need to get this fresh.

Poured from 12-ounce can into a stemless wine glass. Very pretty deep copper color, with a thick white head that left lots of spotty lacing as it settled. Although the sample was two and a half months past the canning date, the aromas and flavors were bright and citrusy. Orange, orange peel, tropical fruit, and perfumy notes, with a little sweet caramel to balance it out and a ton of pleasant, zesty bitterness that lingers on the finish. Overall, an excellent IPA.

12oz can filled 08/14/2017 17:16:00 poured heavily into a pint class.

Appearance- a transparent copper color with a super frothy off white head. leaves decent amount of lacing.

Aroma- citrus and spicy hops. different...weird... not too shabby.

Taste- light biscuit in the malt department with some tangerine, mango, light pineapple and pine hop action. abv is well hidden. bitterness isn't bad. not too shabby.

Mouthfeel- medium/ light bodied. good carbonation. alil slick. solid.

Drinkability- could drink this easily.

Overall- this beer isn't bad. it tastes more like a new school hop ipa which I usually don't care for with tropical hop notes but this isn't overpowering. kinda reminds me of a weaker version of the imperial voodoo ranger by new Belgium. I find it funny tho cuz that beer is rated so low compared to this. Proves beer hype is real. the mouthfeel is slick and body seems lighter than most standard American ipa's which is nice. good beer but I think I would still prefer a two hearted or a centennial considering i'm more of that old school ipa fan that's just pine and grapefruit heavy. this beer does have the pine notes and is why I give it a plus in my book.
