4.35/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Slightly hazy, lighter orange color. Good looking white head stays around for a few minutes, and leaves some nice lace.

Juicy hop aroma bursting out of the glass. Pineapple, mango and other tropical fruits. Maybe a bit of pine and herbal notes as well. Malt is really an afterthought here.

Clean, cracker like malt up front, not a great deal of sweetness. Hops flavor an bitterness comes in quick and hard. Again, tropical fruit dominates. I love the juicy flavors here. A bit herbal as well. Bitterness lingers, but is not harsh.

Medium body, with ample carbonation. Not much heat from alcohol. This is a very solid IPA.

Serving type: on-tap

T- Pine up front with a nice fruity balance with a bitter aftertaste... very impressed with this..

M- Smooth with a bitter feel.. nicely done

O- being from the cleveland area.. this is very easy to get.. ive had it before really liked it.. it belongs in my top 10 but there are 4 or 5 beers i like better than this one.. if you come to cleveland visit fatheads.. they do a great job

4.94/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

This is my favorite IPA that I've ever had; sampled this beaut at the FatHeads on the Southside of Pittsburgh in a pint glass. Could God have crafted 16.9 oz more perfectly? I'm not sure...

A: Glorious- cloudy, but just right for something this powerful. The head was about an inch on this pour, and felt... right.

S: So fruity, earthy, and mellow. Citrus and pine are the predominant notes, but there's others. My early-spring nostrils didn't catch them all, so I'll come back soon to update.

T: Those same citrus and pine notes, plus apple and pineapple (good work, Fatheads). Oh, and I forgot- HOPS. SO MANY HOPS AND I LOVE IT.

M: Great carbonation, but a little (and I mean little) more light than I would normally ask for.

O: Amazing. My all-time favorite beer.

4.29/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a willibecher. This was bottled on 03/19/2014 - 1 month ago.

Appearance: Pours a translucent medium amber/gold (not very hazy) and leaves a finger of white head which fades relatively quickly to a white layer atop the beer. Carbonation can be seen floating to the surface.

Smell: Big resin, malts, some citrus. Pleasant, balanced IPA aroma.

Taste: Taste is much bigger than the smell - big piney hops, resin, bitter citrus rinds, grapefruit, malts. Still pretty balanced, with big hop flavors.

Mouth-feel: Well carbonated with a medium, slightly creamy body. ABV is hidden well. Finishes a tad bitter.

Overall: A nice, delicious IPA with big, tasty hops. Very drinkable. If this were available in my area it would definitely be a go-to.
