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 *IBUs, 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.

mpersinger (365) - , California, USA - JUN 1, 2013
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 its 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.

Holmen1 (5700) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2017
Fra flaske p Mi2 Cardinal feb-17: uklar oransjegylden med hjt skum som varer til bunns. Amerikanske humler og karamell i aromaen. Bruser i munnen - litt overkarbonert. Lett stlig smak, selv om ettersmaken er ganske trr, s den glir foruroligende sorglst over ganen. Granskudd, ananas, mynte. En nydelig og betimelig munnrens etter s mange mrke l. Superfrisk.
