Fat Heads : Trail Head Pale Ale

Tropical hops, a solid pinch of bitterness muted caramel malts, slight roast, but insanely bitter for a pale. This can be an IPA. Aroma of pungent hops and toasted malt. Mango, herb, pine assault the palate and faint malts are trying to balance. Citra and Simcoe hops going to town giving off a very nice flavor. Medium bodied, well carbonated with a solid hop bite. Overall, this is a hell of a pale and certainly one worth trying out. I'd definitely get this again.

Pours a clean orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma a mellow citrus hop. In the taste, a dryer citrus hop, but more hops than malt. A small hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry citrus like hop in the aftertaste. Quite hop heavy for a pale, not complaining, just sayin'...

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours out gold with some extra color. Nice foam top that holds beautifully.

Crispy floral hops with fruity notes of tropical rind, grapefruit, unripe orange, and lychee. Crackery malts showcase the hops well.

Lightly tropical with notes of mango rind, white grapefruit, flowery hops, whole cones, and tart papaya. Excellently hoppy, like a Head Hunter Lite. Pale as can be in the malt department with crackery dryness. Extra dry with the hops and a crisp bitterness that gushes out a bit. Nice and stable medium body with a pumping carbonation that acts like Winterfresh on the gums. Hard to slam because of the gassiness. Great pale ale, overall.

On tap at Bob's Bar in Columbus, OH.

Pours a dark orange/amber color, with a 1.5 inch head, and some good lacing down the glass.

Smells quite hoppy, with some pine needles and sap, some grapefruit.

Lots of orange and mango on the palate, slammed with some intense pine bitterness. Lots of lingering bitterness for a simple pale ale. A little bit of caramel malt flavor is drowned out by nice intense hop flavor.

Medium bodied, very drinkable despite the amount of hops. Crisp and dry mouthfeel.

An excellent beer, and my first from this brewery.
