Beer review number 800.

Wow-that seems to be my first word every time I try a new hopped up release from Fatheads. This stuff is intense. Super dank, Sticky, flavorful hop goodness. Just another super beer from what is one of my favorite breweries.

Hopheads NEED to try this,

This stuff went down way to easy. I was not expecting something this smooth, when I ordered a triple IPA. And it tasted great too.
I'm definitely looking forward to my next one.

LOOK: A hazed light amber color with a white head that dies down quickly. A big beer for sure by the looks of it.

SMELL: Tropical alcohol wasteland. Like an IPA on steroids.

TASTE: Tropical flavors from the hops like chalky papaya, pineapple, tangerine and grapefruit. Pine, resin, tongue coating resin. Alcohol, even a hint of dark fruit. Bitterness is ample also slight honey and toffee. Orange citrus. Marmalade. Definitely toffee and heat in the warming finish.

FEEL: Smooth, even chewy, and warming. Full bodied with a medium carbonation.

OVERALL: Big hoppy Barleywine, or triple IPA. Reminds me of an American Piraat.

Wow, just wow. This resinous brew has an almost caustic immediate smell that opens up nicely as it warms. At over 11% and 100+ Ibu's (Probably close to 140-150 range IMO), it has a good and possibly great flavor. I can't quite explain the medley of hops, just that the Chinook kind of overpowers the Citra addition with it's piney flavor and scent.

The alcohol is very prevalent on the nose but again as it warms it really melds the flavors nicely.

I really enjoyed the growler I took home of it, but be warned, share this one it is way too strong to drink alone. Hope they bottle this one soon so I can try cellaring it into a great barleywine.

A phenomenal beer. A close analog to Enjoy By or Waldo's Special actually. Bold, savory hops with boozy warmth. This may actually be the best FatHead's beer I've tried to date.

10oz snifter at Fat Heads N.Olmstead brewery for $6.75 American dollars.

Light copper/honey colored brew with a 1/2 finger, slightly off-white head which quickly dissipates to a rim. Minimal lacing which is par for a high ABV brew.

Citrus, pine, honey, light caramel and earth, in that order.

It's citrus and pine throughout with a nice dank, smooth bitter aftertaste.

Yes you get some sticky, resinous characteristics but the alcohol is well hidden and the mouthfeel is oh so smooth for the amount of hops and subsequent ABV.

This is a well done Triple IPA (which needs its own category). I prefer Hop Juju for the overall flavor profile and lower ABV, but really, this is another example of Matt Cole and FHs ability to explore and create with hops.
