Nice dark amber color with a good amount of hop bitterness balanced with a good malt sweetness. I can taste a lot of orange citrus. Like a lot of good pale ales is that it doesn't overwhelm with too much bitterness but it lasts forever on the tongue

Thanks to fiver29 who labored to get me a 12 oz. can that was about 328 seconds old...then I let it sit in my fridge for a month. Forgive me, my friend. Please.

The pour is light-defying orange with ample carbonation. Nose brims with tangerines & more oranges - the fruit this time, not the color. Appealing.

Trail Head doesn't extend Fat Heads rep as the finest hop dealer in the Midwest, but it doesn't detract any, either. Head Hunter bitterness rears its Head (ha!) here too, backed with a smattering of orange pith, pine, light pepper, then the hot iron of bitter hell closes the deal. Sticks to the bottom of your mouth, too. I could stick more than one of these in my mouth.

I just came from San Diego, home of the world-class-hop-master. Unlike Head Hunter this can't join that pantheon, but I'd never complain about seeing it through glass. Or aluminum. Though I couldn't see it, then. Huh. Very good beer.

The beer is light orange with a white head. Big hop aromas, with oranges and assorted citrus shining through. Tangy citrus, nectarines, mild sweetness. Medium bodied with ample carbonation. Solid.
