Tasting at Fat Heads Tap House on 10/15/2014, CLE Beer Week release of Hop Stalker.

Clear saffron-yellow elixir presented in nonic pint glass. Two-finger, thick, white head, heavy laced glass at the end of the draught.

Really nice battle of the hops going on here: dank, resinous pine in a battle with the citrus, mango and grapefruit. The sweet, sweet citrus wins by a nose.

Crisp citrus flavors of mango, pineapple and grapefruit cut by what seems like cane sugar caramel, then smooth hop pine, resin and subtle spice come up to provide balance. The mouth waters. The citra and simcoe hops really create a complex amalgam of flavors.

Medium body, nicely slick, alcohol hidden.

Another fantastic hop-driven brew from Matt Cole and FHs.

Bright copper color on the pour it's head is cream colored forms thick bands of lacing evenly as it settles out a bit.

Aroma has dank earthy citrus notes hops right off the vine with tropical fruit notes think papaya and pineapple in there amongst the foray of hops. Biscuit malts give off a bit of bread like notes and perceived malt sweetness.

Flavor is pure hop juice, I'm sucking on hop candy raw hops with balanced sweetness Citra is one of the hops harmed in the making of this beer. Big citrus rind, tropical fruit notes including mango/pineapple on the palate. Stream of hop oils crosses the palate, this batch was canned on 10/15/14 I'm in heaven!!!

Mouthfeel is medium bodied slightly resinous in the fact that you feel like there are hop oils flowing across your palate within that experience is one of the most amazing hop profiles I've come across so drinkable, burping hop hops even carbonation canned a day ago.

Overall, incredible experience from Fat Head's I hope to have more like this...I'm probably driving down to Fathead's again soon to grab some more!!! They are that good!

16oz can poured into a 16oz har glass...be burley

pours a hazy sunshine orange with a proper head, somewhere between bubbly and creamy

smells like what i imagine a grapefruit harvesters hands would smell like after a long day of picking fruit and rolling joints

tastes squarely of grapefruit peel, with fleeting notes of tropical fruit and whiffs of dank cannabis and yeast

pleasantly creamy mouthfeel (initially) that left my toungue stuck to the roof of my mouth with resiny oily goodness

this is like drinking a proto-headhunter that climbed out of some primordial trub that the brewers forgot about and it snuck into the fermentation room and absorbed all of the other evolving beers life force and morphed into some sort of humuloic demon bent on consuming every hop flower in existence...and its fantastic

*now, if they would just cut it out with the horrible label art we could be best friends

note: it has now been 2 hours since my last gulp, during which i have had a glass of water and a banana with peanut butter, and all i can taste is hop resin...its like stuck in my teeth or something

16 oz can poured into snifter

A: nice lively head that dropped away after a few to a small tight head. Nice light copper color. good clarity

S: very pungent hop flavor and all over the spectrum, it's sweet smelling with a light Carmel smell that rounds into a fruity smell like overripe fruit and then a little herbal

T: Bracing fruit, then piney, then a little floral ending with a biscuity herbal taste and a little bit spicy

M: not bad at all but pretty common for an an IPA semi light bodied with a little but of cloying

O: Wonderful beer the hops explode on the tongue and it's very in your face and a lot of different hop flavors, nice bready sweet fruity smell. Really nothing to complain about on this beer look for it you'll love it.
