Relocated to Pittsburgh about 3 years ago from South Louisiana and landed in the legendary Southside of all places. Having the Fatheads pub within a mile of my house is a HUGE perk.

I've spent significant time in Socal and Norcal, and have tried the best that Colorado has to offer, few beers come close to the dank goodness that is Headhunter IPA. Their awards and reputation speaks for itself...

With a list of recognition's like that, if you're a hophead, that loves dank pine & citrus no-holds-barred IPA's than you owe it to yourself to seek this out. I've had Pliny, Nugget Nectar, Sculpin, Flower Power and MANY others and I can guarantee that Headhunter can hold its own with ANY of the big hyped IPA's. Get some if you can!

edit: I've had this on draft and in bottle. Like any beer, batches can vary from time to time, hop batches vary from year to year, etc. However, for the most part, this beer is consistently solid. 5/5

Very Proud to have this as a "Homer"beer!Totally awesome brew from a totally awesome facility!
Golden/Orange clear and beautiful,with a smaller cottontop head and beautiful lacing
Smelled of excellence,nice citrusy,fruity,flowery goodness happening!
taste is as good as it can be for a single IPA, similar to the nose but abitter/smooth thing going on at the same time,a hop head's dream!
mouth is clean and crisp,with an o so pleasant lingering Hoppy aftertaste,very nice!
dinkability is out fuc%in standing, not real heavy and the aftertaste leaves you NEEDING another brew,Totally AWESOME!
