Mangos, Pineapple, Oranges and a balanced malt backbone that equals the hops.

A West Coast IPA that would fly off the shelves if actualy distrbuted in the west coast / CA.

Well Done Ohio. Once again, I'll say it...More impressed with you than Vermont.

Cheers!

Lots of citrus and grapefruit flavours in this tasty ipa. Surprisingly refreshing considering the 86 ibu. On tap at Fat Heads Sah Side.

First Fat Head that I've been able to get my hands on thus far.

Poured a robust golden color, not particularly hazy or cloudy.

Smell was out of this world. Grapefruit coming out of the woodwork. Other citrus flavors were mixed in there as well. Clearly well hopped with a variety of strands.

Lots of citrus in the taste. Given the amount of hops in the nose, i was expecting a harsher taste, but I was pleasantly surprised. The one downside was that the flavors were a bit muddled together and less layered than I hoped.

Feel was very smooth and drinkable. I was surprised when I saw it had an ABV of 7.5

Overall: would absolutely drink again. I describe it as hop juice. Would love to get my hands on a Hop Juju now
