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.

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.

This was pretty tasty. An orange color, with a sustaining head. Quite a bit of bittering hops, with a dry finish.

phaleslu (9019) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2016
22 oz. bottle shared by the brewer himself. Thanks again! Pours a cloudy orange color with a moderate off-white head. Big, fresh hoppy nose, with citrus zest, herbs, pepper, grass, and some balancing sweet and caramel malts. Like hop pellets in the nostrils. Same notes in the flavor but with just slightly less pop. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a bitter, malty mouthfeel. This is a pretty classic West Coast IPA, as the brewer said. He’s not into the more recent IPA trends, and that shows in the beer. And it’s also fine. This is a really nice example of what it’s supposed to be.

Leighton (17770) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2016 Bottle shared in CA - cheers! Pours clear, orange-gold with a creamy topping. Nice juicy citrus and pine in the aroma, with accents of earthy hops. Moderate sweet with some lightly toasted malts, rindy orange, oily pine, tangerine, bitter grass. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Moderately resinous to close out, with more pine and rindy citrus, light alcohol, background bready malts. A good, punchy old-school IPA. Done well.

DSG (11246) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 12, 2016
[1/30/16] Draught sample at RateBeer Best awards ceremony at Hyatt Vineyard Creek Hotel in Santa Rosa. Deep golden. Aroma of leafy and oniony fruity hops. Flavor has a bit of malt sweetness, and oniony fruity hops. Medium-bodied.

b3shine (7861) - Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Draft to pilsner glass at River’s End in Jenner, CA. Looks solid; malty though. A fairly transparent copper with eggshell head and lively carbonation. Smells solid too; juicy and a bit of piney hops alongside notes of caramel with a moderately bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. More caramely than I prefer, but solid nonetheless.

Bottle. Clear light amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, light caramel, mango and light grain. Taste is very light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of citrus, tangerine, light grain and caramel. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice!
