Hometown Hero juices are hand crafted in Texas. The brand was born out of a need for better tasting, better quality e-liquid. This is our fifth review of this brand. The first four were very impressive so it’s clear they have achieved their initial goal and that “Angel Tears” has a lot to live up to!
This e-liquid is available in 0,3 and 6mg nicotine and has a VG/PG ratio of 70/30.
“Angel Tears e-liquid by Hometown Hero was created as a homage to what is arguably the best snow cone flavour ever, Tiger’s Blood. We think we nailed it and it is the most popular flavour in the Hometown Hero lineup.
Tigers’s Blood consists of Watermelon, Berries and Coconut”
My setup is as follows –
- Dotmod Petri (double airflow cloud cap)
- Dual flat twisted – 3mm – 9 wraps – Coming out at 0.30Ω
- Wicked with Rayon
- Snow wolf 200w – Set to 100w
This juice comes in a 50ml plastic bottle. The only way you could describe the label is beautiful. In fact, Hometown Hero has chosen local artists to produce the images that adorn their packaging. The image on “Angel Tears” was created by @Deathfox. The nicotine strength and VG/PG ratio is clearly shown as well.
Opening the bottle releases the immediately identifiable watermelon scent. A sort of warmth can be detected underneath the watermelon but I can’t pick out what it is.
Inhale – All I can really taste here is the watermelon. Again there is a mystery depth to it that I can not identify.
Exhale – As I expected, Watermelon takes centre stage at this point. There is an additional sweetness that I assume comes from the berries, and that warmth that has been reluctant to show itself, is more easily recognised as coconut. The aftertaste is primarily watermelon.
In conclusion – I may sound negative as I continue my conclusion but the very very short version is that this is a nice juice. I think watermelon is a very tricky flavour. It strongly resists mixing with any other flavour and prefers to drown it out altogether. I’m afraid this is also the case here.
Hometown Hero have done a good job with a tricky flavour, in that you can make out other layers that haven’t been completely squashed by the watermelon but they are very subtle. The flavour is so strong that it is almost impossible to remove without rewicking or changing coil. This seems to be the case with any juice that is watermelon based.
The vapour production in good and your clouds will smell lovely. It’s a great juice that suffers from the usual issues found with flavours this strong. If you can see past that, you won’t regret buying “Angel Tears”
