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.

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.

Trying the beer on tap. First time I've had it. I would describe it as being on the dry and bitter side of the scale. Not too fruity or floral-ly. For my taste, not enough of those things (fruit and floral) that make an IPA exceptional. Fairly clean finish with a hint of yeast flavor, despite the fact that the brew is clear and yellow orange. Cheers!

8/6/16 canning date

A: Pours a clear gold. Very tall and fizzy light tan head. Quite good head retention with light fluffy lacing everywhere.

S: Nice candied citrus - orange and grapefruit. Yum.

T: Not so sweet on the taste though. Big blast of bitter orange and grapefruit again. Some pineapple too. Sweeter in the middle now where that candied fruit taste takes shape. Decent wave of bitterness into the finish but that sweet candied fruit follows it, balancing it nicely everywhere. Big floral lingering aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied, bitter and dry.

O: Great citrusy IPA. Big sweet and bitter citrus notes everywhere makes for a bold but nicely balanced IPA.
