JuKebox Hero is a new Black India Pale Ale from Revolution Brewing out of Chicago. You can only get it in bombers, but that's ok, it's the perfect size to settle down with and enjoy a podcast. This week, Dave and I split one during our show.
This is one of the better Black IPA's I've had the pleasure of drinking lately. In looking at reviews online, it didn't seem to blow people's socks off like it did mine. It's not as thick as other Black IPA's, and it's generally more hoppy, which I really like. Maybe this isn't a to the book version of this type of beer, but it's a great mixture of some heavy, delicious malts against the strong fruity hops.
Check this out if you see it in the store and you are a hop head of any kind. It's 7.5% and not too heavy, so it's a great session beer to go along with a sixer of A Little Crazy, their Belgian-style Pale Ale.
