This was a fresh hopped version that I tried. Light aroma but big flavor. Pineapple and mango, tropical fruit bomb. Bitterness gives a pleasant kick to this.

Clear golden yellow with a foamy white head.

Big citric, lightly floral hop character. Tasty, well done IPA. A good first impression from this brewer.

Big bitter grapefruit on the finish of this. Nowhere near my favorites from PDX Fat Heads but that's merely because they have insane hoppy beer depth. A classic IPA style with IBU blasting at the end.

While pleasant, this really wasn't a standout IPA. Fat Head makes so many different IPA's, most of which are better than this one. Can't imagine any reason to order this one again.
