It doesn't get much better than this. Extremely drinkable at 7.5%ABV. Top 5 IPA IMHO.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass, outstanding citrusy hoppy aroma, a great beer!

12 oz bottle served chilled into a pint glass.

Head Hunter is a slightly hazy pale copper color. The head is thin and short lived and leaves no lacing.

Aroma is hoppy in a west coast kind of way. Big citrus and a little pine dominate the nose.

Flavor is bold and bitter with just enough malt sweetness to get by. It's got all the citrus character from the hops with both hop flavor and bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and properly carbonated.

Overall a very good IPA and probably one of the best I've had from Ohio. Go Buckeyes!

From a mixed six on a Florida trip. Bottled 9/23/14. More than 3 months old.

a: Clear dark gold with a two inch thick white head which receded to uneven thick surface foam and dense lacing

s:Citrus and pine

t:
Strong pine resin up front with considerable bite, over a medium biscuit maltiness.
Bitter finish.

m: Medium, excellent body, plenty of carbonation tingle

o: A lot of flavor and hop bitterness here, not as good as expected given the high BA rating, but age may have adversely affected this bottle. As is, a strong-tasting but impressive brew nonetheless.
