Fat Head's Head Hunter IPA
Thanks to Ncketchum for scooping up a four pack of this fine beverage.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a CBS snifter. Served chilled...
A) Nice golden amber with about a half finger of soapy head. This settles to a wispy dusting. A little lacing is present.
S) The aroma is pretty sweet on the pour with a good amount of citrus and ripe pineapple. The pine is more prevalent as it sits a bit.
T) The tropical fruit noted in the aroma is much more muted in the flavor, as the bitter resinous hops steal the show. This definitely has some bite. The 7.5% ABV is not a factor.
M) Medium body with moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Piney aftertaste....
O) Highly enjoyable, and worth seeking out for hopheads. This was pretty fresh, so that was a huge bonus. Glad to recommend.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a hazy orange with just under a finger of loose off white head of mostly tiny bubbles. Decent lacing from swirling up the head a little bit.
Nose is sweet citrus, orange and grapefruit, floral hops, pineapple, mango, and a dank herbal hop. A touch of caramel sweetness.
Taking a sip, taste leads with a blast of bitter dank and herbal and citrus peel hop flavors. Bitterness lingers a bit with some sweeter tropical hop notes. Not much malt presence in the flavor as a light bitterness lingers into the finish.
Medium body with a good amount of carbonation to keep the tongue dry and thirsty. Big bitterness on this IPA, and it lingers quite a while.

12oz bottle poured into a stemless wine glass, enjoyed with family at a great BBQ.
The beer pours a nice honey, copper color, clear with a slight chill haze and a fluffy white head, nearly 2 fingers high that has moderate retention and a light network of sticky lace. The aroma is quite pleasant, bright citrus, sticky pine with some floral character before some sweet, honey-esque malt pushes through. The balance is very nice with a great emphasis on the citrus profile that is nicely backed by the pine and malt. On the tongue, the balance is just a nice, lots of juicy citrus, lightly tangy, sticky, bitter pine with nice resinous hop spice, wildflower, grassiness with just a kiss of lightly sweet, pale malt. The body is quite juicy, carbonation is on the lower end, but still lively, coast the mouth well with a lightly dry finish.
Verdict: A really delicious IPA from Fat Heads, a definite Ohio gem. The balance is very nice, the bitterness is kept in check and it's got a great dry finish. It does strike me as a fairly simple IPA, not too complex but that isn't really a bad thing. Definitely worthy of the accolades!

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip.
A: Pours a nice clear yellow almost golden color with one to two finger white head that disappeared fairly quickly.
S: Nice mix of citrus and hops. Pine and resin mixed with orange and grapefruit.
T: Subtle bitterness from hops mixed with nice juicy citrus. Some faint malts in the background.
M: Crisp and a bit dry on the tongue. Nice body.
O: A very nice IPA. Between this and Zombie Dust, it makes me want to move a bit further north so I can get into a distribution area for both!

bottled 7-22, served in a tulip.
a: clear golden orange, decent head and lacing.
s: somewhat muted. citrus, pine, resin, honeyed doughy malts come through as it warms.
t: juicy hops, lightly sweet, with a drying, somewhat chalky/astringent bitter finish. in sum, much better than that description sounds. more-ish.
m: a hair under medium-bodied. bitterness and astringency linger, while managing some crispness.
o: not disappointed, mind not blown either.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip glass with a nice 2 inch thick creamy head head that took it's time to settle down and left some nice lacing on the glass. The color of the beer was a golden orange and it was a bit hazy.
Aroma was full of hops and citrus-- definitely dominated by grapefruit.
Loved the taste, starts off with some grapefruit, orange, tangerine, pineapple, and then you get a nice resinous flavor that's balanced with some decent malt, and quite a bitter finish.
Mouthfeel was a medium body and carbonation, a little bit sticky.
Overall a very enjoyable IPA, this could be dangerous at 7.5abv. Thanks to mshull for the trade!
