T - Bitter with some well balanced maltiness. Amazingly awesome. Great aftertaste

One of the absolute best IPAs I've ever had. More like Stone IPA, better than Sculpin.

12oz bottle from Delock's Discount Liquors (Munster, IN). 8.99/ 4 pack. No bottling date. Served in a Burnt Hickory snifter.
Pours hazy deep amber with notable turbidity and about one finger of pale thick head that leave lacing aplenty.
Smells of citrus and piney hops with an obvious sweet bready malt note behind them.
Tastes of bold bitter dank hops. Citrus rind, wet grass, dank garlic/onion, grapefruit and a little bready malt back there too. Really nice blend. Very bitter but plenty of flavor goin on.
Slick, medium body with moderate carbonation. Long bitter citrus peel finish.
Good stuff here. I would definately get this pretty regularly if I could buy it in Georgia. Worth a try for sure if you like dank bitter IPAs.

Gifted to me by a friend following a trip to Pittsburgh; excited to try given high ranking + non-availability in New York. Fat Head’s markets this as a west coast-style IPA, and while some of the hallmark WCIPA flavors are present, this strikes me as more of a Midwestern, Two-Hearted-style drinker.
Appearance: Light orange
Smell: Slight citrus, but not overwhelmingly so. Citrus is offset by more earthy tones.
Taste: Fat Head’s brews Head Hunter with Columbus, Simcoe and Centennial, and as mentioned, the Centennial really rises to the forefront for me, evoking Two-Hearted. The Simcoe provides a nice counter-balance to the Centennial, but in concert with Columbus gives off a considerably more piney/grassy/earthy taste than the citrusy west coast-style Fat Head’s claims to have been going for.
Mouthfeel: Sharp, piney, resinous
Overall: A very good Midwestern IPA. I’d love to try this on tap one day.
