Look is above par; smell is like refined bitterness, coarse, grassy, and filled with grapefruit. The taste follows with exquisite balance. It's dank; it's bready; it's fruity; it's dry; it's malty; it's all of those things. This beer is world-class. So damn larrrge. If you want an IPA that hits on all your notes, yet traditional, this is the one.

This is one of the better IPAs I have ever had. Got it in a trade and I am loving it. The fruity, citrusy hops are perfectly balanced with the malts and earthy tones. This a great beer.

Tasted in a pint glass from draft on Brother Jon's Alehouse on March 31, 2016. Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 oz bottle on November 30, 2017. Well made. Quality ingredients. Recommended.

This is one of the best IPAs I’ve ever had.

(L) It has a clear amber hue with a white two inch thick head.

(A) The aroma is grape fruit and pine.

(T) There’s some sweet malt back bone, and lots of pine, grapefruit, pineapple, dankness, all very well put together.


(F) Its smooth and crisp and juicy, and easy to drink too quickly. It is a top notch IPA in my opinion.

Bottled in January, enjoyed ~10 weeks later. Dark golden orange pour with a, uh, fat head. Nose of muted citrus, tea and tobacco. Taste of orange rind, blood orange, tea and apricot. Hard to justify the rating, so much so that I'm doubting the bottle is a representative sample. So be it - not getting my hands on a couple more of these anytime soon. Solid beer but nothing heavy about the hops.

Freshly tapped 1/6 keg at my basement bar poured into a Belgian tulip glass. Lacing is sticky and impressive. Orange, copper in color with a hint of haziness. Swirling the glass brings out all the aromas. Pine, sweet grapefruit with hints of pineapple and mango. They should make an air freshener out of this, seriously...The hoppy bitter goodness gives you a quick smack in the face, followed by the citrus grapefruit, sweet pineapple and malt, finishing with the same bitterness that reminds you that you're drinking a fine IPA. This is my first beer from Fat Head's Brewery and won't be the last. The 1/6 keg was a bit pricey at $105.99 plus tax, which is about what I paid for my last keg of Ballast Point Sculpin Grapefruit. I think the Sculpin is just a tad better though IMO. Either way, Head Hunter is definitely one to seek out and drink again and again.
