Creative, revolutionary graphics on the can: a testimony to hops. Bright polished golden color has amber highlights, light by most IPA standards. The contrasting white, rocky head leaves a lace on the glass as it dissipates. Floral aroma is pleasant and not overwhelming. Plenty of hops on the palate, too, balanced with a malty roundness and slight acidity. Perfect with a medley of winter vegetables (turnips, rutabagas, cabbage, onions and potatoes) with spicy harissa sauce.

Anti-Hero? I anxiously opened not knowing what was “anti” about this brew. I sniffed, tasted, cried “Uncle” and got all emotional. “Why?” I asked myself. The anti-hero whispered from the glass, “It’s the hops.” I succumbed to the poetry. There’s a revolution brewing in Chicago. Golden, balanced, slightly acidic, full of malt and hop harmonics. You’ll give a damn about this brew if you like IPA.
