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.

Serving type: bottle
