Weathered copper orange in color and murky, with amber hues along the edge of the glass. Poured with a dense off-white foam that slowly reduced to a soapy cap that left thick, sticky lacings on the glass. Intense, fresh, tropical citrus aromas, pineapple, grapefruit, and tangerine with strong sweet caramel malt backbone and pine hop notes in the background. Creamy smooth feel with rich, soft carbonation through the middle and a light tangy, dry finish. Ripe pineapple and tropical fruit flavors with sweet, sticky, caramel malt beneath. Pine hop flavors emerged from the middle to the end. Finished semi-dryly with a lingering pine hop aftertaste. Very tasty!

Just try it. New England thinks they have the IPA game on lockdown, they don't.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #86 (Mar 2014):

Grapefruit, Bitter, Catty, Grassy

A bit of an onslaught of hops in this can. Flavorful mix of old-school hops, like Nugget and Centennial, and the more current or trendy high-alpha-acid varieties Citra and Bravo all make for a beautiful mashup of hop complexities. Sure to please the hopheads.

STYLE: American IPA | ABV: 6.5% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a beige color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, hops. Taste is hoppy, but less so than the smell, a mild bitterness, some citrus, just a bit of pine. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking and solid beer.

A - A finger's worth of active lush light-to-medium colored khaki froth comprised of medium sized chunky bubbles... Solid retention... Turns a bit creamier as it settles and leaves a full veil of lacing and moderate collar... The color is a slightly pale muted copper... Largely still with just a light bit of moderate paced carbonation throughout...

S - An intoxicating hop forward aroma... Starts with a kiss of sweet citrus and tropical fruit... This is backed up by a sturdy mix of earthy and piney hops... The plethora of hops sits a top a rock solid malt base highlighted by cracker, biscuit and some light caramel sweetness... Text book for the style and extremely well executed...

T - Hop forward... The the piney resinous earthy hops take the lead... Next comes the malt base which is dialed up in intensity a bit... Loads of biscuit and caramel... The light sweet citrus components linger a bit beneath the surface and add an extra layer of depth and complexity... Excellent balance... Again, an excellent representation of the style...

M - Medium bodied... Sleek... Sturdy... Light to moderate carbonation... Crisp... Even and consistent... Goes down easily sip after sip...

D - This is my initial introduction to Liquid Hero, a local brewery which I haven't had the opportunity to experience until now... I'm very impressed with the overall craftsmanship... I'm most impressed by the depth and array of hops present on both the aroma and on the palate... Solidly above average in all facets... Nothing world class or remarkable, just really really good... Rather quaffable and refreshing... Overall, color me impressed... I'm eager to try more of Liquid Hero has to offer...
