On tap: The aroma consists of citrus, peach, and grapefruit. Itís a transparent amber with a small off-white head that leaves behind a lot of sticky webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus and a touch of fruit. The finish has moderate grapefruit and a touch of pine. Itís light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

12 oz can poured out a lot of sediment. Very faint aroma. Not sure how old my can was since I got it by trade. Taste is nothing spectacular to me.

On draft. Aroma of pine resin. Taste is of citrus hops and then some moderate tartness, finally some unexpected spice. Thin malts, but more east than west. Nice.

ChrisFields (70) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Pours a nice copper color with a crisp white head. Aroma is citrus peel and conifer. Taste is consistent, grapefruit and resinous pine needles. Medium body, mild carbonation. Tried this before and thought it was okay, then about a week later got an odd craving for it. Maybe not outstanding but pretty good and at 6.5% is very drinkable.

Tap at Revolution Brewing, Milwaulkee Ave, Chicago. Poured a clear light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is hoppy leading to a medium bitter flavour with a malty liqourice spicy hop slightly smooth caramel palate. I really enjoyed this.

Draft at Revolution Brewing, Chicago. Pours clear amber with an off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, pine, resin and light caramel malt. Flavour is over moderate sweet and bitter, bringing out the qualities better that are light in the nose. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

Canned 6/25/13 and poured July 8th -- hard to beat that. Appearance: A pretty clear amber color, with maybe just a slight haze to it. Thereís maybe a finger or two of head, but it bubbles away pretty quickly. Thereís basically no lacing. This doesnít have the look of some of the other critically acclaimed IPAs, but thatís not a huge deal. I do love the label on the can though, which is why my appearance rating is bumped up a bit. That probably shouldnít factor in, but oh well. On one side you get the fist thatís shown in the picture on this site, and then on the other you have General Hophead with hops falling from the sky with parachutes. Itís just a memorable, good looking label. Smell: Sweet, but without tropical fruit smells that Iíve had in a good number of IPAs Iíve had recently. Instead, this has that sweet, bursting piney hop aroma. I havenít ever been in the presence of pot before, but I imagine this is what it probably smells like. Taste: Almost exactly like the smell. Sweet, piney, Mary Jane sorts of taste through and through. The aftertaste is slightly sticky, and absolutely fantastic. Iím not sure Iíve had a fresher tasting IPA -- this is almost like just sucking on a hop. Anti-hero has hops through and through, but itís not intensely bitter at all. This has a great sweetness to it, and it works incredibly well with those sharp, fresh-as-all-hell hops. This is awesome... absolutely awesome. One of the freshest tasting beers Iíve ever had. Being bottled 13 days ago no doubt helps. Anti-Hero is definitely now one of my favorite IPAs, and that actually sucks. Revolution needs to start distributing to Michigan soon, because I only got one six-pack of this stuff.

Pours orange with a little white head. Smells of citrus and tropical fruits. Ever so slight sweetness present from the malts. Tastes very similar to the smell. Bright notes of citrus, grapefruit and tropical fruits are presence. Pretty hoppy throughout the palate. Mouthfeel and carb are both in the same range as other IPAís. This is really a great beer. Nothing very unique about it, but loads of good flavors and well crafted with my favorite hops.
