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.

~Strong citrusy aroma of orange and grapefruit with berry and caramel malts. ~Pours a slightly hazy light amber color with lasting white creamy head. ~Hop flavor isnt aggressive as the aroma, more piney resinous type hops, some grapefruit, well balanced with sweet bready malty character. ~Medium full bodied, slightly chewy, medium co2, lingering resinous hop character. ~Aroma is very nice, flavor is a bit muddled. I prefer IPA’s to be a bit drier and refreshing. Still an enjoyable beer nonethless, but would only have one.

ALLOVATE (2437) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2014
Fiery copper and brilliant; sparkling heavily in the lights. Head is up then fades quickly to nothing at all. Piney, sweet, honeysuckle, lavender and rose petal nose with tinging tangerine and blood orange. Nice, fresh, floral palate. Clean cut with huge rose petal/rose water notes and a strong sense of guava, lychee and peach coming through. Slightly gassy with a medium light body and dry finish. Short in length with just a little musk residing. Bitterness is subdued. Good backbone of biscuity, toasted malt. with a nutty, pinewood finish. Very well balanced and holds the alcohol well. Quite a nice brew. Sessionable, love the label, and overall a refreshing IPA! (65,cL, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Pint at Pub Republic Petaluma. Good aroma. Sweet. Fruity. Lemon orange. Clean brownish orange color. Ok head spotty lace. Medium body creamy slick mouthfeel. Bitter dry finish. It’s fine. Not as impressive as it’s graphic. Initial aroma started nice but faded a little As it warmed. Flavor want as interesting. Kind of grapefruit rind. Not offensive, Not seeking another.

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a darker orange/gold color with an off white head. The aroma is fruity with some odd notes of apple cider and florals. The flavor is strong with florals and fruit with a little toasty and lightly caramel malts. Slick and oily body, but finishes reasonably dry with strong bitterness. I didn’t have high hopes for this one after looking at the reviews, but I don’t think it’s really that bad. Maybe there’s some batch inconsistencies here. A decent old school "balanced" take on the style, but there are many others I’d choose first.
