First Fat Head that I've been able to get my hands on thus far.

Poured a robust golden color, not particularly hazy or cloudy.

Smell was out of this world. Grapefruit coming out of the woodwork. Other citrus flavors were mixed in there as well. Clearly well hopped with a variety of strands.

Lots of citrus in the taste. Given the amount of hops in the nose, i was expecting a harsher taste, but I was pleasantly surprised. The one downside was that the flavors were a bit muddled together and less layered than I hoped.

Feel was very smooth and drinkable. I was surprised when I saw it had an ABV of 7.5

Overall: would absolutely drink again. I describe it as hop juice. Would love to get my hands on a Hop Juju now

First Fat Head's brew in my portfolio. Hop explosion for sure. Beautiful golden color. Lots a of different tastes going on here. Every sip brings out something new. Pine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, floral notes, lemongrass and other subtle tropical flavors. Dry hop finish and nice carbonation. Definitely a party in your mouth. Great IPA. Looking forward to trying some other Fat Head's offerings.

Spotted this at Whole Foods. Bottled on 1/7/15, tried on 2/23/15. Well, this one suprised me. Hop bomb for sure. Very light malt presence. Hops more pine, floral then anything else. Glad i was able to try this.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A. Pours a mostly transparent amber color with a 2 finger foamy cream colored head. Hieroglyph lacing around glass.

S. Floral, tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, banana, strawberry.Some pine.

T. Sweet bready malts. Pine, pineapple and nice bitterness. Grassy aftertatse.

M. Body is a 4 out of 10 in thickness. Nice carbonation that stays on the tongue after the swallow for a second.

A nice IPA. Was fortunate enough to get this is a trade. Nice pickup if it's locally in stores around you but if not you can find something just as good. Daisy Cutter would be comparable.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Pine, citrus, grass, and resinous notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes bitter, with a nice hop bite
