Fat Head brews have the tendency to just bowl you over. This one does it. I'm not sure how a brew can be this close to perfect. It shows exactly what is great about this style.
It pours a deep yellow with loads of lace. The aroma is fresh and crisp with sharp finishing hops aroma. The taste is that dry over the top APA, but it is a little dark and malty too, giving it some balance. It goes down bitter and stays bitter on the tongue.
The biggest problem with this brew is that I did not buy enough. I will get more at the store tomorrow and maybe stop by the brew pub and have a fresh pint next week.

Pours out of the can hazy amber golden with a nice fluffy two finger head. Good retention that has clingy and tight lacing on the glass. Word of advice the yeast can get chunky, pour smooth.
Big aroma comes off as highly tropical with a steady pine backing. Fruit aromas of pineapple, juicy melon, passion fruit and orange citrus ride high atop a foundation of pine resin and biscuit and doughy sweetness.
Bright grapefruit, lemon pith and pine hops are in your grill from the start with some spicy and herbaceous follow through. Doughy malt sweetness provides balance and the herbal bitterness remains bright and is a couple of ticks below the IPA range.
Average body with appropriate carbonation, the bright hop bill makes it seem more lively than it really is. Fairly clean, the pine and herbaceous hops linger quite a bit and wetness stays on the palate.
Impressive pale ale, a perfect summer crusher. It's got a good nose and balance with an All-Star cast of hops.
