I went to the new Portland brewpub when the first batch of headhunter released. While having a great aroma it seemed to be lacking in hop flavor and had a harsh bitterness. Still a great beer (4/5) The brewers even admitted they weren't super happy with it and it would get better.

Now they are distributing kegs, and I had a pint at saraveza last night. The great aroma seemed to be more profound and tropical fruity, it's even more amazing. And they have seemed to completely fixed the flavor issues. Before the malt was more forward. Now the hops shine through with just enough malt to back them up. While I was skeptical about this beer at first, it has now exceeded expectations. (4.5/5)

As a self-professed hop head, I was really looking forward to this. And indeed, the aroma is fantastic. However — and I never thought I'd ever say this — it might be (shudder!) too hoppy, bordering on bitterness beyond palatability.

Don't get me wrong; it delivered everything it promised. And the aroma IS amazing. But I really doubt that I'll be going back to this any time soon. Not never; just not soon. (YMMV)
