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.
