Style: American IPA

Notes / Commercial Description:
Immodest hop additions throughout the brewing process characterize this distinctive, amber colored NorCal fashioned India Pale Ale. With an ABV of 7.2% galvanized by a total of 64 IBU’s, we were obliged to create an IPA that would distinguish itself as immortal amongst the common, and with an unforgettable name. We believe we have done just that. Heroine India Pale Ale. A pint of help is on her way.

an apparently widely distributed but largely underwhelming ipa in the northern california area. its got a little more red caramel type malts to it, beefing it up a bit in body and alcohol, but the hops are irrelevant here. its not floral or aromatic, and it doesnt finish bitter or juicy, it just sort of wallows in mediocrity on the hop front. the beer is well made though, has no immediately apparent flaws, but comes across as a fine execution of an unimpressive recipe. i liked the other beers i had from these guys a lot better, and think this one fails to distinguish itself in a crowded west coast ipa scene, its big without being dank and resinous, not one i would choose again. also a bit filling for summer, but i can see the appeal for some.

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of herbal and spicy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having lots of flavors of herbal hops along with notes of spicy hops and hints of underlying caramel malts. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA does a good job at hiding its alcohol from the taste, but I didn't find the combination of herbal and spicy flavors to be rather pleasant.

Pours a thin head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is mild grain and lemon.
The taste is more malty sweet with a balanced hop profile. Lemon bitterness.
The texture is medium and softer.
An enjoyable malty IPA.
