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.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 Draft sampler pour at Face to Face Beerfest ( f22.org ): Still not what I was expecting from IPA, but eyes recently opened during blind judging as well. Brewing process has been cleaned up here, I suppose. Slight lemony with green onion on molasses & sassafrass, and sweet malt aroma. All this present and balanced in flavor, along with bitter hop flavors that are pronounced but not coarse (along lines of green onion and tire) Medium-lean. Clean finish. Appears amber with eighth-inch linen head of tightest bubbles. I think it’s a neutral ale yeast with complexity from malt bill. I like to support local, and I like the label artwork. This sample pour was muddy apricot colored with wide halo white head. A slight malt aroma, yet disappointingly little by way of hop aroma, nearly a leaf-like note. Flavor is led by caramel malt and some earthy and pine hop flavors, and possibly British-yeast derived earthy tones. Medium bodied, a bit sweet, without a drying out in finish.

Bottle at home from Bevmo. Semi clear orange golden coloured pour with a loose sticky off white head. Aroma is caramel malts, sticky resinous, hops, veg hop matter. Flavour is chewy caramel malts, sticky resinous hops, a bit rough round the edges. Strawberry, little toast. Palate is semi sweet and chewy, highish carbonation. Decent old school IPA.

Bomber poured a clear amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness, pine and a hint of grapefruit. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of caramel, pine and earthiness with a smooth dry bitter lingering earthy finish.

Poured from the bomber into a shaker glass. Medium to dark amber with a light tan head. Aroma is a big dose of hops, mostly citrusy with some floral and resinous notes also present. Flavor starts with a smooth biscuity malt backbone and transitions into a sweet and hoppy finish. Citrus and floral hops are the main focus but this has a nice sort of oily hop appeal that makes it seem like fresh hops were used. Medium bodied and quite well balanced. This isn't overly malty or hoppy, but rather marries the two well. While I love the hop bombs, this is a solid IPA for sure.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with medium white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is citrus and pine. Medium mouth, nice hop bite, citrus, resin finish, very good.

Malty on the nose, slightly fruity mango and passionfruit, ruby red grapefruit and hoppy bitterness on the finish. Well rounded and finished IPA

Bom custo beneficio, IPA regular, bela aparência e rótulo. Gostei muito do aroma, mas o sabor não sobressaiu tanto... Floral, alcohol

Flaske: Ravfarvet orange klar øl med et fint lille skumhoved. Duften er lt maltet meget humlet citrus. Smagen er tropisk frugt med en tand appelsin der kan anes. Lækker øl.

~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.
