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!

Nice amber-ish color. Nose is vegetal hop tones. Flavor brings the same smooth vegetal tone. It's smooth and definitely nice and there is a nice oily vegetal thing going on. Not really blowing me away or anything though. Doesn't seem worthy of a 4.38 rating. (The average score when I rated this one.)

Picked up the can for 4 bucks at D's Six packs. Into a pint glass.

A - Exceptional pour! In my imperial pint glass it gave me a 2 inch's of head that slowly settles to a sticky lace ring. Slight sediment floaties in the glass with a golden amber color.
S - Resinous yet balanced hops, slight sweet malts, no noticeable ABV.
T - Smooth crisp hop bitterness straight from the tank! Balancing sweet malts, not noticeable ABV burn. One hella good beer!
M - Light to medium bodied easy to drink pounder.

Overall I was highly impressed with this it ranks up with the top take on the style (Founders Harvest) Price is good I would get it again!

Nice fresh hop aroma, but taste is a little oxidized.

Can from Joe. Thanks big guy! Pours very slightly hazy golden with a big fluffy white head that sticks around a while and sticks all over the glass. Amazing aroma of citrus grapefruit, mangos, pine, grass, and definite sweet caramel malts in there but the hops are what shine in the nose. Flavor is pineapple, grapefruit, citrus zest, hint of bitter dry pine, grass, yum. Not as dry and bitter as Head Hunter and with a bit more vegetal raw hop flavor and juiciness. Light bodied and easy going with medium plus carbonation. This is good, but what do you expect from these guys when they get their hands on some hops?
