4.46/5 rDev +2.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Bottling date of 01/29/14
Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip glass
A- Pours a medium burnt orange/yellow with a high slightly off white head. Looks to be medium bodied. Nice degree of clarity, some hop resin chunks floating around.
S- Sticky, lightly dank pine, pineapple, some citrus, light tropical notes and bitter burn in the nostrils. Medium-light malt on the back.
T- Pine, a pretty big smooth, long bitterness, all 87 IBUs are accounted for, Grapefruit, nice level of sweet tropical notes of pineapple and papaya. A lighter malt character than in the nose. Leaves a pretty high degree of bitterness on the tongue.
M- Surprisingly light mouthfeel the makes this a pretty easy drinking high hopped beverage.
O- This is one of my favorite IPAs. It has much of the things I look for in a great IPA. It has a big hop presence and a nice medium sweetness and is very easy to drink. I try to go to Indiana or Ohio and grab some whenever I can. Wish it came in 6 packs though, I mean if Bell's can do 2Hearted in 6ers and this seems to be just as equally hopped, just with 3 hops instead of 1, then surely this can be put in 6ers.

4.68/5 rDev +7.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75
Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass at around 45°F
Appearance: Burnt orange color with a one finger off white head that sticks around; Sticky with great lacing. There's a good amount of sediment which I'm not extremely fond of.
Smell: Tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, orange, lemon), pine, and sweet malt. They blend together perfectly; Among the most aromatic AIPAs I've encountered.
Taste: Hop juice at it's finest! On par with the aroma; Everything you want in an AIPA is there. Enormous amount of tropical hops, bittering hops, pine, and just enough malt. The aftertaste carries on the tropical notes. You can tell this beer was intricately thought out.
Mouthfeel: Light medium body with medium bitterness. Stickiness from the hop oils.
Overall: It's hard to pull off an IPA of this caliber, and Fat Head's has done it! An AIPA done to near perfection and one of my favorites in the style. I feel lucky to have a regular (fresh) supply of this. If you're a hop head, seek this out, as i know you will not be disappointed!
