Dark honey yellow in color with a heavy chill haze. Poured with a big frothy foam that reduced to a thick cap that never faltered. Huge sheets of sticky lacings on the glass. Pungent citrus hop aromas, ripe orange and pineapple, with faint pine hop notes in the distance. Hop aromas are delicate enough to allow sweet caramel to show through beneath the hoppiness. Medium bodied with a slight oily feel and aggressive, but not fizzy carbonation. Pungent citrus hop flavors down the middle with pine hops on the edges. Nice sweet caramel malt backbone keeps the bitterness in check. Citrus flavors taper through the middle as the pine hops take over to the end. Finishes with a strong, lingering pine hop bitterness. A nice variety of hop aromas and flavors.

Wow, what a a great beer. This is one of the best IPAs I've ever had. Delicious and full of flavor. I am never disappointed with Fat Heads Brewery & Saloon. Very pleased with this brew and I have since recommended it to many. Very excited to get this again.

12 oz. bottle.

Partly cloudy bronze-orange head. Small finger of tight-bubbled, eggshell white head. Lots of pine, resin, dank, citrus zest, and orange marmalade on the nose. Some fruity malt sweetness pokes through as well. Still, this beer has the aroma of a hop monster.

Lightly toasted malt up front. Citrus rind and herbal hop bitterness quickly follows. Bitterness swells, with notes of lots of citrus, pine, and resinous danky hops. Toffeish malt with fruit notes provide a little malty sweetness. Lots of grapefruit and dank resinous hop flavor and bitterness dry out the palate into the finish. Lingering citrus and pine. Medium bodied, with a slightly creamy feel. Very nice.

Says bottled July 30, 2013, enjoyed August 2, 2013. That is fresh, and I am impressed that it got to Florida within a day from Ohio (arrived at shop on July 31!). Pours a yellowish orange, hazy, with a very small white head. Aroma is big mango and pine hops, grapefruit, pineapple, lots of citrus. Flavor is a nice big bitter with beautiful mango flavor with hints of lime zest. High carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Good beer.
