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

Look is a dark amber slightly hazy with a thin white head.

Aroma is bubble gum/pine bomb.

Lots of pine on the taste, bubble gum sweetness lies just underneath.

Absolutely delicious. Such a beautiful drinker.

Featuring Warrior, Chinook, Centennial, and Amarillo hops; has lots of floral and citrus elements edged with earthy pine; brings a tongue-numbing bitterness along with its medium-light body and ample carbonation. Tremendously drinkable at 6.5% abv. Totally recommended drinking.

Great hop forward IPA, some flavors of citrus, yeast, pine. Pretty typical IPA but that isn't a bad thing when done well. Chicago is brewing some great beer and this falls into that category.

Pours a beautiful honey-amber glow, with a 1 finger head that remains stable. 20% transparent.

Cracker/pine on the nose. Some bread and spiciness trailing behind.

Flavor is slightly sickly caramel, followed by muted pine hops and liberal cracker, and quite a bit of squeezed hop juice. It grows sort of tiring after a little while.

Feel is pretty huge, has a creamy wave with sticky pine resins and a dry, parchy finish.

Overall, Anti-Hero isn't a beer I'll be visiting again.
