Notes / Commercial Description:
An American hop assault for all the ambivalent warriors who get the girl in the end. “Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess.” This iconic ale features a blend of four hop varieties which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas.

Anti-Hero is another India Pale Ale, which is a style of beer I'm discovering I have really no tolerance or taste for. The taste is intolerably bitter, and mixes the lackluster qualities of dry fruitiness with bitterness and, in turn, produces a beer that's hard to drink without making a face. I admire it because it is different, but cannot recommend it because it tastes incredibly rancid. Needless to say, my first offering from Revolution is a bust.

Poured this 12 oz. can. Dated May 20 2014 (reviewed from notes). The body was clear and golden with a pretty white head.

The smell was citrus and pine. Spicy and peppery.

The taste was citrus sweet, tangerine. Pine. Hints of dish-rag - wha? Pretty balanced, which was surprising. Dank hops are prominent. This one dries out and the bitterness increases in the finish.

The mouthfeel was medium and there was adequate carbonation.
