Better than average appearance, almost a full inch of dense head. Somewhere between yellow and orange appearance. Aroma lacked hops. Grainy and that's about all folks.

Totally lacking hop flavor taste. Same with mouthfeel. Bitter and malty. Caramel prominent because not much else besides the bitterness is.

In serious danger of failing, but I gave him a D+ for the ol' college try.

Color- dark honey. Medium head.

Aroma- maple syrup, oatmeal, topaz hops.

Taste- Starts sweet and syrupy then finishes with a dank lingering hoppiness. Maybe this was not a fresh bottle? Just a disappointing brew in a very crowded market.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted December 2012.

Bomber served chilled into a shaped Sam Adams glass.

Supa Hero is a hazy yellow orange color with thick white head. It's tight and sticky leaving some nice lacing behind.

Aroma is super hoppy and fresh with great citrusy hops. Accurately described as dank on the label.

Flavor has lots of great hop flavor. Surprisingly not that bitter but full of fresh hops and a lemony citrus character.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Very well balanced for a double IPA.

Overall a pleasant surprise. This one tastes better than the reviews had me expecting.
