Draught pour into pint glass with one finger head; Amber/ burnt orange color with moderate carbonation. No apparent smell or hint of hops which surprised me. Moderate bitterness of hops that dissipates rapidly yet subtlety lingers with no lacings that again surprised me given this is a four hop beer. Overall, I liked it and would recommend.

6.5% ABV - 12oz. can - canned 2/24/2016

L: A thick golden-brown color. Settled with a one-finger head that dissipated slowly, leaving behind trace amounts of foam.

S: Hops, overlaying an orangey-citrus and pine.

T: Strong bitter hops that linger into the aftertaste, but not in an overpowering sense. A bit of an earthy flavor along with the citrus accented in the smell.

F: Medium body, smooth. Very smooth finish.

O: Being newer to IPAs, this is one of the better IPAs I have tried. The smoothness and citrus-infused hoppy flavor definitely add to its allure. Crisp, drinkable, and easy to enjoy any time of year.

On tap at the airport. A crystal clear golden amber with a foamy white head. Great lacing in the glass. Somewhat muted aromas of citrus and floral hops. The citrus came out nicely on the first sip: grapefruit, tangerine, and a bit of earthy notes. A restrained malt presence with bread and cracker. Easy drinking.

Revolution Brewing Company - Anti-Hero IPA. 6.5% ABV. 12oz can poured into a snifter. Canned on 2/1/16.

Look: Settles a hazy orange color, with lots of floaties. Head is about one finger sized white, bubbly foam, which settles into a bubbly ring.

Smell: Bready malt up front, along with some hops, and tons of sweet citrus fruit.

Feel: Medium bodied, with lots of lively carbonation, and easily drinkable.

Taste: Bready malt balanced by bitter hops, along with more of the sweet, juicy citrus fruits. Finishes about the same, malt and bitter hops.

Overall: Great balanced IPA, with lots of hop bitterness, but also malt sweetness, and tons of fruit profile. Finishes crisp and dry, with great drinkability.
