A classic offering from Revolution Brewing and is always a nice go to at the bar for party night. This IPA is well set off extremely hoppy citrus tasting IPA. Enough said, w/ your typical bitter aftertaste. Nothing that screams out at you, but a great beer to tip back w/ no sipping involved.

Anti-Hero

The first thing that comes to mind when I drink or see Anti-Hero, is this is a great pizza beer!

Look: A dark golden look to it, nothing special to report.

Smell: Hoppy smell.

Taste: This is a hop forward beer, as an IPA usually is for me. I enjoy it, but it's not something I enjoy all the time. It's a bit too hoppy for me to have everyday, which is why I enjoy their "Fist-City". As the beginning states, I enjoy this with a good, thick piece of Chicago style pizza.

Feel: As a beer should feel.

Overall, great beer! I recommend to pick a 6-pack up and try yourself. As always, enjoy responsibly!

I like Revolution Brewing because they are a great example of how brewing revives our cities and, of course, provide a much needed variety available to the mass of America's taste buds.
So for that reason, I must like Anti-Hero because it is Revolution's cash cow that makes possible all their brews that I really admire (Eugene and variations) and all the other cool things they do with the second largest brewing plant in America's second city.

But, I do not like IPAs as a general rule... and Anti-Hero largely follows that rule.
It looks great (nice amber with lace), it smells interesting (citrus, some pine), its taste is OK, but its after-taste and mouthfeel didn't leave me alone. I had to go to the refrig and get salsa to eat with chips. After that, I could finish the beer. 70 IBU might blow some minds, but it just blows my taste buds. I hope I recover for tonight's meal.

Pours on the darker copper color side for an ipa. Smells like citrus, candy, and pine. Taste is super balanced.....the malt and slight sweetness do an excellent job of rounding out the hop profile. Medium body with medium heavy carbonation. Nothing spectacular.....but a very well rounded, super drinkable ipa.
