What the brewer says

“All the juicy fruit hops with none of the harsh, lin­ger­ing bit­ter­ness. With a hazy, or­ange color, He­roes is an easy-drink­ing IPA, ex­plod­ing with notes of cit­rus and stone fruit in ev­ery sip. The first re­lease in the Sen­so­rium Se­ries.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Sweet trop­i­cal aro­mas of or­ange, peach, pear, tan­ger­ine, le­mon, grape­fruit, over-ripe apri­cot, and some spicy al­co­hol notes. Slight pine and earthy notes as it opens up.” Fla­vor: “Nice trop­i­cal-fruit blend: pa­paya, co­conut, or­ange, light le­mon. Grassy here, too. Mild as­trin­gency, and on­com­ing hops bit­ter­ness is a good bal­ance to the sweet­ness of the ini­tial taste. Fin­ish is smooth and slightly sweet but fairly quick to fade.” Over­all: “Good bal­ance of fla­vors that wel­comes the drinker to en­joy a sec­ond.”
