Tasting Notes
Pretty sessionable but still packs a huge hop flavor and aroma.
Revolutions Citra Hero was definitely the all star of 2014 for IPA's here in Chicago (For me). I couldn't get enough of it. It's everything I could ask for in an IPA. Pretty sessionable but still packs a huge hop flavor and aroma.

what temp were you at for your whirlpool? meaning were you cooling from the flame out or just killed the flame, covered, whirlpooled the wort and rested. then cooled after. heard it done different ways, so wanted to see what worked for you.

I was interested in brewing Anti-Hero a couple years back. I contacted the brewery, here's what they said:

Here's what's in it: Pale Ale, Red Wheat, Munich and a touch of Golden Oats give this beer its rich golden color and a complex malt profile and texture. We utilize Warrior, Chinook, Centennial and Amarillo both in the brew kettle and again for post fermentation dry-hopping.

You aren't trying to brew that beer but I would imagine the grist is similar.
