look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

I've had is before but I feel like now is the time to review since I can now but it in a nice four pack or case at my local.

A: Nice fluffy head with a deep ambery golden nectar underneath.

S: I get some great fruit. Mango, grapefruit and pineapple

T: Unlike some other IPA's with a tropical fruit nose, I get a nice straight piney bitterness with hits of citrus ... exactly what I want.

M: It doesn't seem to have the malt backbone and full mouth feel to carry hop explosion, but amazingly it works ... it works great.

O: This is a must have, it's up there with Pliny the Elder and Heady topper. Easily the best IPA that I can get 4 for $10. (647 characters)

My first beer from Fat Head's.

Pours out a nice orange with almost a slightly greenish tint and a decent amount of white head.

The aroma is full of citrus and fruity hops along with a dank hop aroma.

Taste is dominated by hops that taste almost fresh squeezed and it has a very in your face approach. The fruit is very juicy and there is a subtle malt background.

Very refreshing and easy to drink. A great summer IPA. (423 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is mostly pine and citrusy (grapefruit, citrus peel, tropical fruit) hops, along with a little bit of caramel malt. I think the taste follows the aroma, it tastes mostly like pine and citrusy hops, with a teeny bit of caramel malt noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and oily with a moderate amount of carbonation. It's nice to see this brew in bottles, I've heard about it for a while now but finally was able to try it today and it didn't disappoint! It's certainly one of the best Ohio IPA's (and IPA's in general) along with White Rajah and Columbus IPA. Definitely worth trying if you have a chance to get it! (793 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a light golden orange with an ample three fingers of lacey amber head. Moderate retention of head and some lacing evident on the walls of my pint glass.
The aroma is like being in the citrus section of the grocery isle. Grapefruit, lemon and some pineapple followed by a resinous piney nose.
The flavor is like a smack to your face. A blast of piney hops mixed with the sweet citrus notes. A mild backbone of malt help take the sharp edge off of the extreme hop hit, but not enough so that you'll mistake this for just another hoppy beer. Definitely West Coast Style, but better than Green Flash or Bear Republic have done to date.
The only modest drawbacks I see have to do with a mouthfeel that seems thinner than the flavor/aroma would dictate and a fighter color which belies the complexity and intensity of flavor found in this ale. Well done Fat Head! The closest think to my version of a perfect IPA! (916 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Golden tan/burnt yellow with a 1 inch foamy head and mild lacing.

Smell - A load of hops, grapefruit, orange, pine, pear, plums, rasin. Some carmal malts and faint farmhouse like spices and yeasts in the finish.

Taste - Loads of hops at first sip. Very floral, sweet and hop bitter. Close to a west coast ipa with its pine/grapefruit/orange flavors mixed with a saison/farmhouse like floral, earthy flavors. The hops are very crisp, clean and a perfect mix of sweet and bitter. Light caramal malts and added sugars come near the finish to balance and add even more flavor to this amazing ipa.

Mouthfeel - Light, crisp, refreshing and lots of sweet fruits nail the tounge. Palate gets more hops along with some spices and malts. Aftertaste is bitter, fruity and a little dry.

Overall - Top 5 ipa ive ever had. I loved going to fatheads to drink this but i like having a bottle of it even more. Excellent world class ipa, smooth, tasty and hoppy as hell, a must try. (1,004 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

12oz bottle poured into snifter; I believe this one is quite fresh.

A: Pours an almost clear, bright, golden copper color– really great looking. Two fingers, at least, of foamy white head cap off the glass and leave behind considerable lacing all down the glass.

S: Huge, huge doses of pine and citrus hops carry this one. Grapefruit and sweeter pineapple are noticeable in particular. Unbelievably fruity while balancing sweetness and dankness well. Caramel, bready malts come out just a bit as the beer warms.

T: Huge doses of hops all through the flavor– pine flavors are strongest with citrus coming in at a close second. The considerable hop flavors alone are almost able to balance the bitterness they offer, but just a bit of sweet, biscuity malt shows up to do the job.

M: Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Smooth, creamy, and lightly dry on the finish. A sticky, resinous quality helps the hop bitterness stick around. [Updated from 4.5 to 5 on 8/01/12 after 5 or so 4-packs of this.]

O: A serious candidate for best beer that I've had to date. It looks beautiful, smells awesome, tastes perfect, and mouthfeel adds a lot to the overall enjoyment. While I'm incredibly happy that this is being bottled now, I'm kicking myself for never making it to Fat Heads to try this on tap before. A must-drink if you can get your hands on it. (1,357 characters)

4.59/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Golden yellow which avoids a pee-like appearance. Average head and lacing to the pint glass. Clear like a mysterious golden elixir.

Smell - Very complex and interesting hops. Citrusy, bitter, and piny on the nose. Very nice smelling.

Taste - I don't think I've ever tasted a combination of hops like this before. Sweet floral buds that proved a nectary taste. An easy malt back to this beer. A bit piney and pleasantly bitter.

Mouthfeel and Drinkability - Easy-going down the throat. A nice bitterness due to a complex combination of hops. Fresh. Gets a bit more bitter towards the end. Very unique and worthy of a try. (635 characters)

Pours a brilliant copper glowing slightly orange and red when held toward the light with a bright white head building up big and large. I love this beer, Fathead's has done it again and released when of my all time favorite IPAs. Aroma has big floral, citrus, and fruit filled hop bursts going on...this beer is great. I'm not sure which hops they use, but it has the most tropical fruit smells I've ever tasted straight up mango/pineapple. The most sought after West Coast style IPA brewed outside of Cleveland. This brand new case I picked says brewed in small batches to ensure quality I believe it. This an 87 IBU hop monster that gives out hop flavor with malt sweetness all day, it's balanced yet aggressive and uncivilized according to the label. Hop candy all day, a beer that flows with each sip anybody into hops needs to try this beer, I get layers of grapefruit and bright hop flavors that are literally rocking my world. Mouthfeel is resinous but not heavy, light to medium bodied ample flowing carbonation excellent drinkable IPA for those of us in the know. I know this beer is amazing I've been drinking it on draft at Fathead's since it came out.

Update: bottled on 5/14/13 @ 10:34 am drank on 5/18/13@ 4:23 pm I love fresh IPA and I love the Head Hunter!!!

Hops are screaming in this sample, beautiful cohesive force of big hops and malts I can't believe this is available this fresh in my area bought at Valley Wine Cellar in Steubenville, Ohio. It made it down here from the production brewery in 3 days I bought it on 5/17/13...that's effective distribution. Good job to the Premium beverage folks I can't believe it. Pairing an Erik Espinosa Habano from the La Zona Factory in Esteli, Nicaragua beautiful Habano wrapper spicy Nica tobacco, fills the nares with black pepper, the palate with leather and spice beautiful cigar to pair with a badass West coast style IPA. If you never had the pleasure of drinking this on tap please find it fresh in bottles amazing experience, every hophead around this area should have I'm about to pick up the rest of the bottles. (2,088 characters)

Served on tap, into a Guulden Draak tulip

A. About on inch of lacing hangs around for a few minutes, minimal lacing. Light orange/yellow coloring. Extremely hazy -- can't see through this one.

S. Zesty citrus hops, mostly grapefruit with a bit of pine.

T. Follows nose, with more intensity. Through the grapefruit rind into this and it's almost like a fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice. Pine is there as well. I like this. It gets better as it warms.

M. Light to medium carbonation, hoppy after taste which emphasizes the pine.

O. I really like this beer. It gets better and better at is warms, and at 7.5% ABV (as advertised in this here bar), it's a good way to start the day. I'll have this again when I see it. (718 characters)

Poured on-tap and served in a small tasting glass. the beer is a slightly hazed, orange coloring and inch high head with great retention, too. Aromas are citrus-hop blend that smells amazing. orange, and grapefruit blending with the pine, fresh cut grass, and resin to entice you right into the glass. Flavors are rich and resiny. A very Hop forward punch with a grapefruit that keeps you coming back for more. There is a subtle caramel backbone that supports all the other profiles, which is exactly what it should be doing. The finish is clean, smooth, and very satisfying. Another great Midwest IPA. (602 characters)

From 64oz growler to Hess imperial pint glass on 5/30/12
*From notes

-- I must take a moment to thank both siege06nd and Papa Siege for grabbing a fresh fill of this amazingness and hauling it all the way from the Land of Cleve. Such a generous and thoughtful act. I sincerely appreciate it, gents! --

A: Clean and sexy 24k golden amber in hue. A steady pour yields a massive three finger head that's sticky and dense and simply marvelous. It sticks to the walls of the glass from top to bottom, and the collar is just insane.

S: Holy Christ this smells good. The moment I open the growler and I hear that hiss, it fills the room with non-stop tropical hops. The fruity esters are some of the best I can recall. As I drink, I find myself sniffing and digging my nose deeper and deeper into my glass to get more of what comes across like crack for my schnoz. If this isn't perfect, I don't know what is.

T: It's initially a bit bitter up front. But it doesn't last long, as the fruit intertwines and eventually rules the mid to back. Mango, pineapple, hints of melon and every other Caribbean fruit you can think of surf onto the palate and make for a killer IPA that sticks to my jowels. As it warms, I do get some alcohol on the finish.

M: Plenty of carbonation, yet it's creamy and medium bodied. It's extremely easy to drink, as this is silky, rich and absurdly approachable.

O: LIKE A BOSS. Fat Heads absolutely nailed this one. It's a world class offering that any and all hop heads should be required to tick. It's crazy how delicous and complex this is, yet it's one I could kick back with on a Sunday with the guys and simply "have a couple cold ones". I really can't express how much I enjoyed this wonderful creation, and eagerly look forward to quaffing it again.

Yet another winner from Cleveland. (1,816 characters)

Poured from a Fat Head's growler I picked up this afternoon.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow-gold color, with a 2.5" thick, white sticky head leaving tons of spiderweb lacing as it reduces.

Has a very fragrant, piney citrus aroma. Fresh white pine, hemlock, white grapefruit and honey combine for a clean, crackin' crisp smell.

Starts piney-fresh, with hints of resin, rosewater, and oak leaves. Grapefruit, orange and lemony tastes follow the pine start, ending pleasantly bitter. The hop taste couldn't be fresher, rivalling only Brew Kettle's White Rajah for fresh hopped IPA heaven. There's no unnecessary maltiness or sweetness to balance out the hops or jack up the abv; nor are the hops so intense as to leave your mouth numb. It's no so much that there's a perfect balance, as it is a perfect expression of pure IPA nirvana.

Medium bodied, this is so clean, crisp and just "fresh" in feel and taste that you can't ovestate it. There's an immediacy to the taste and feel that just make this ale explode with flavor.

Simply awesome; it is easy to see why this IPA has won so many awards. I wonder how well it has done once bottled; on tap (or from a fresh growler), however, this IPA is world-class. (1,208 characters)

I believe this batch of Head Hunter was tapped on Wednesday 4/11 at the brewpub in North Olmsted. I hopped over to the brewpub for lunch on Friday 4/13, enjoyed a pint of the IPA there, and took a growler of it home to enjoy over the weekend. This review is from early Friday evening, probably 3 hours after getting the growler filled. Poured into a standard American pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden-yellow/light-orange hue with avid carbonation abounding in the brew after a slightly vigorous pour. A half finger's worth of cushy white head recedes to a cloud cap covering within a minute and holds there before settling to a nice lacing. No lacing left behind on the glass. Lookin' good. 4.75/5

Smell: My nose is a foot from the glass and I can already detect the piney citrus aroma of this IPA, that's how aromatic it is. It's all tropical and citrus fruits - certainly bitter grapefruit, a little juicy pineapple and sweet orange. A bit of pine in there. Fresh and dank. 5/5

Taste: An onslaught of luscious tastes sail over my taste buds. This West Coast child sports sappy resin, strong bitter grapefruit as suggested in the nose, and a strong bitter aftertaste that leaves behind a solid dry spot, calling for another sip. Citrus fruits of orange and pineapple sneak in with repeated sips. Very hoppy but won't repel the tongue with an overeager attack. A complex yet simple, straightforwardly enjoyable IPA. 5/5

Mouthfeel: Dry from the hoppiness of the brew. On the medium-light end of things as far as an IPA goes. Carbonation is just right, being the first pint from the fresh growler. Not sticky at all and goes down pretty smooth. 4.75/5

Overall: Did you expect anything less than essential perfection? This IPA is a medal winner at GABF with great reason. The color is spot on, the nose is entrancing, the taste is to die for and you can keep sipping on it for quite some time. Doesn't get better than that! If only it were truly sessionable, but at 7.5% you're going to have to show some restraint and keep to a few of these. This is THE benchmark beer for me! 5/5 (2,103 characters)

orange/gold with a creamy, wispy, white head. It's about three fingers and it's all over the place. Doesn't dissipate much either.

Citrusy aroma.... some grapefruit/ pine .... Slight hint of caramel and malt.

Hops starts off strong on the taste.... lingers with a bitterness (that becomes more and more pleasent)... Grapefruity finish.

Very good! I'm accustomed to West Coast IPA's, and this one is quite reminiscent! (420 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a growler into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber with a two finger fluffy white head. The head fades to a layer on top of the pour that sticks around while you sip.

Smell: Sweet with tons of citrus peel notes. Juicy fruit notes with some grain, but I'm really excited by the hop notes that I'm picking up.

Taste: I would put this up against many of the top west coast IPAs. Citrus peel hops dominate with just a hint of pine and enough sweetness to balance things out. The finish is bitter and hoppy. Really nice.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with constantly tingly carbonation and a very dry finish.

Overall: Fantastic IPA. The hop profile is spot on. I will definitely have another given the chance. (734 characters)

Smell: Grapefruit and nothing but

Taste: Grapefruit, with a hint of biscuity malt underneath; citrusy finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A really nice grapefruity IPA; though it has a hint of residual sweetness, it never comes close to becoming cloying (390 characters)

Poured from a growler purchased a few days ago from Fatheads.

Appearance: golden yellow-orange color with a finger offsite off-white, thick head. The color is beautiful. Quite a bit of retainment for an IPA.

Smell: strong pine and citrus smell, maybe a little too strong actually.

Taste: unrealistically good taste. Great hops flavor, mild alcoholic kick.

Mouthfeel: a little carbonated, probably because of the serving type. A bit dry, but it goes down smooth.

Overall: without a doubt the best single IPA I've ever had. Incredible taste. I will be disappointed when the growler is empty. (595 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tasting glass. It poured clear and amber orange in color with a pillowy white head filling one inch of the glass.

The aroma is very juicy with pineapple, peach and mango all coming out. It has a little bitter grapefruit and citrus rind presence to it as well. Very nice bright and hoppy aroma to it.

Taste shows more of the pineapple and tropical fruits at first but the finish shows a little More dry, resiny, grapefruit bitterness. I love the tropical fruit notes to it.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. I thought it was a great beer overall. It was a very flavorful and easy drinking beer of the style with some excellent bright, fruity, fresh hoppy flavors to it. (726 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours somewhat cloudy bright orange with a big 2 finger pillowey off white head with good retention and a solid coating down the glass.

Best word to describe the smell is dank. Lots of dank grapefruit that probably comes from Simcoe. Other citrus fruits and fresh cut grass as well.

Flavor is very dank as well. Starts out with some citrus, more fresh grass and a bit of grapefruit. A touch of toffee sneaks in for a while, but the hops shine through just how I like them. Finishes resiny and oily with a sharp pine bitterness.

A tad bit creamy with good carbonation levels.

I now understand why it won all the medals the bottle brags about. While I prefer a bit more of a citrus lean to the flavor this was one of the best smelling beers I've ever had and the taste only disappoints compared to it. Not sure of distribution on this, but if it's available in Western Ohio I'm all over it every time I'm there. (914 characters)

A - Deep Amber (kinda hardto gauge in dark lighting) lots of lacing, nice head on first pour.

A - Blast of pine, some citrus, a little dank and tropical in the background.

T - Malts hold up, but this is all sorts of hops all the way through. I suspect continuous additions. Simcoe and maybe Columbus show up en force. Lots of piney and citrus zest notes. West Coast just got bitch slapped by Blitzburgh.

M - Thinner than expected for the ABV, but IPA's are meant to finish dry. Something creamier would have helpd with the enjoyability.

O - As it drinks the hop harshness picks up. There was nothing here that I hadn't had before or was longing for. Sure, it's an IPA that checks all the marks, and I wouldn't pass up using this to introduce folks to IPA's. But where I was at when drinking this, I really felt spent when half way thru. I liked it, but it was almost too much IPA for being an IPA. Nah'mean!?

*I dislike Simcoe very much, try to avoid Chinook, and have a tenuos relationship with Columbus and Cascade. If you love any one of those hops... seek this beer out! (1,079 characters)

Pours a light orange/gold with a frantic white head, leaving a nice lace on the glass.

Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, and light pine up front. Slight hint of caramel and malt.

Hops hits you right in the first sip and lingers for several minutes on the tounge. Finishes nice and bitter like a grapefruit.

Overall the best example of a west coast IPA! Right up there with the big guys, firestone walker, pizza port, coronado, and stone!! (436 characters)

Huge thanks to my Aunt Terri and Uncle Paul for coming through in the clutch on scoring these bottles at the brewery. Love you guys!

Served in a Nonic pint...

A: Pours a pale golden orange with a beautiful three finger, foamy, eggshell white head. Head fades down to a half finger, but it lingers for the duration. Gorgeous tightly beaded lacing coats the sides of the glass. Top notch stuff here.

S: Oh wow, this has a delightful nose. Loads of tropical fruit flavors, including grapefruit, orange, mango, tangerine. Pine needles hover in the background throughout. Just a hint of grassiness on the back end. Absolutely gorgeous bouquet, one of the best I've encountered.

T: Super creamy, juicy, and fruity. Absolutely spectacular. Starts with grapefruit and orange zest, then the pine resin kicks in full gear as bittering hops wash over the mid. Incredible floral flavors provide lightness and balance. Solid malt base on this as well. The finish has some lingering and assertive bitterness, but it blends so purely with sweet citrus. Superb from start to finish.

M: Surprisingly light bodied for all the flavors that are present. Great interplay between malt and hop here: it's spicy, sweet, savory, refreshing all at once.

O: Standing O. Worth every bit of the hype and praise that is has received all these years. Between this and White Rajah, Cleveland may have the best two 1-2 IPA combo in the country...that includes you, San Fran (Blind Pig and Pliny are awesome, but don't have anything on this duo). Very different from White Rajah, a little bit more body on this one and subtle complexity. More pine resin and herbal notes on this as well. A hop head's delight from start to finish. Worth the wait. (1,719 characters)

A: Pours a nice orange color with a thin ring of white head and some sticky lacing.

S: Resiny hops dominate, of course. Smells like the floor of an evergreen forest with hints of tropical fruit. Earthy and slightly sweet.

T/M: Any hop head will love this. Thick mouthfeel with some malty caramel sweetness up front. Then the hops kick in, coating your mouth with pine and that oh so enjoyable hop bitterness. A slight fruit sweetness lingers throughout, balancing the hops. What more could you bask for?

O: An IPA to be recokoned with. The west coast better watch out as Head Hunter can stand up with the best of them. Every true hop head should give this a try. Easily competes with PtE as my favorite hoppy beer and at 7.5% you could call this a DIPA. (756 characters)

Blonde-to-orange body. An inch of head only, but that just means more beer. Bone-colored topper with good lacing.

Citrus (grapefruit juice, tangerine), tropical fruits (spicy mango, guava), and a lovely cracker-y base malt.

Citric rush of volatile hop oils! Grapefruit, tangerine, papaya, and green grass. Some lemongrass, too. Pale malts come off dry and freshly-baked, like white bread. Great bitterness, prolonged after the swallow. Fresh hop cone greenness. A 'wowser'!

Very drinkable, medium-to-light body with a powerful, crisp effervescence. Great overall feel.

An incredible brew! Highly recommended! A big fruity IPA with some balance, remarkable aroma, and excellent thirst-quenching bitterness. (709 characters)

Thanks goes out to Hojaminbag for this brew.

Poured into a DFH glass a very nice dark golden hazy orange color, very nice carbonation, very nice three-finger thick/creamy off-white head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is nice and hoppy, with some malt notes, very nice citrus and pine notes. The taste is especially nice, hoppy, sweet, with a nice malt blend thrown in, lots of citrus/pine notes. Medium Body, with a slight dry/bitter finish. This is an AWESOME IPA, definitely one of the best I've had to date, Highly Recommended! Thanks Ben! Much appreciated! (582 characters)
