Pours a relatively clear, orange color with a thick, compact, doughy, white head. Lines and bands of lacing. Aroma is filled with pungent, musty oranges and onion notes. Spicy hops. Soft, sweet, sugary malt. Flavor just smacks you with upfront citrus. Grapefruit uprising. Piney and grassy and hempy. Tropical fruitiness (mango, specifically) is detectable but starts to burn off by the aggressive bitterness. A submissive maltiness is a bit toasty. Percussive bitterness. Moderate carbonation. Resinous. It always feels good to finally nab a beer you've been eyeing and it also isn't a letdown. This beer is mightily hoppy. Bottled offering.

FatHead's Headhunter IPA. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a glass.

A: Deep golden color, light white frothy head that dissipated quickly. Looks like some poor filtering as there is hop material that made it into the bottle and into my glass. A bit of a turn-off. 6/10
S: Wow, major fruit, grapefruit and citrus notes with some floral and a hint of dankness. Awesome aroma. Reminds me of Stone's enjoy by. 9/10
T: Bitterness through and through. only lightly malty with hops front and center. Some fruitiness, but not significant. clean flavors. 7/10
M: medium body, some hop astringency on the finish. a bit harsher than I'd like. 6/10
O: A nice IPA. Could use some work to clean up bottling practices at this small local Ohio brewery. Needs to be crystal clear, with only a hint of yeast haze if it is bottle conditioned. Great deep golden color, phenomenal aroma and clean flavors. A cleaner aftertaste would be preferable. I'd drink another though. 7/10 or 3.75 stars.
