look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On-tap at the Fat Head's Pittsburgh location, served in a typical British-style pint glass, drank 4/9/13 over one hour.

A: 4.5 - amber-brown coloration, good clarity for style (impressed that it's unfiltered!), white one finger head lingers for a while eventually dissipating into glass lacing, moderate alcohol legs

S: 4.5 - lives up to advertisement...lots of grapefruit, pineapple, pine cone, etc....really great smelling mix of West and East Coast qualities in the aroma

T: 4 - as excited I was after the fantastic smell, there is a huge slap of bitterness on the anterior tongue that I personally find unpleasant, especially because it lingers (this is also my major complaint with Bell's Hopslam); very dry with minor bready/biscuity malt flavors subtly admixed with alcohol notes

M: 4.5 - full-bodied, creamy, mild-to-moderate carbonation --> excellent for style

O: 4.5 - I was really looking forward to drinking this beer after hearing and reading all the hype surrounding it, and, albeit I enjoyed it, it didn't live up to expectations; however, I think that this is really personal taste more than anything; as I drink more IPAs and imperial IPAs, I realize that my favorite aspect is probably the big hop aroma and flavors with minimal bitterness; this is definitely a bitter IPA really tasting those 87 IBUs, and there was a more tropical DIPA on tap (IBUsive) that I preferred (see that review too if you'd like); suffice it to say, if you like Bell's Hopslam, you'll like this one too and don't let my bitterness hold you back

Another top notch IPA in an already crowded field. This one is as good as any I suppose; when beer is of this quality it's more a case of what mood are you in today rather than one being "better" than another.

Pours lightly hazed, golden orange, with a finger of slowly settling white head and nice lacing. Aroma is super fresh and citrusy, with lots of grapefruit in front and piney hops following. Little in the way of maltiness, just a lot of fresh fruit in your face.

Taste follows closely; again this is a citrus, grapefruit-first hop bomb with secondary pine characteristics; a very mild sweetness and biscuity caramel malt backbone that stays well on the sidelines and just props the hops up. Finish is dry, with lingering hoppy flavors and not too much aggressive bitterness scathing the palate. Really easy to drink, delicious, and full of hop nuances without being overly bitter.

Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth feel, right on out of the bottle. So fresh and so clean, indeed, this one is a winner.

With a proud exert on the label that reminds us that this beer took silver and bronze medals in the Great American Beer Festival '10 and '11 respectfully, this high praise comes with high expectations. And this west coast IPA doesn't disappoint!

While its appearance does nothing to deter from the classic look of IPA, its medium amber color reminds me of honey. But capped with an eggshell white sheet, the beer laces and retains wonderfully right down to the last sip.

But the IPA begins to separate from the pack with a bright and drippy citrus aroma. Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, pineapple, tangerine, and herbal (cannabis-like) character mixes with grassy notes. Mild starchy malts carry with it a caramel and butter note that makes the fruit notes seem ripe and plump rather than trying to compete for balance.

The flavors are starkly consistent with aroma. Both the hop flavor and malt sweetness hit the front of the mouth with balanced intensity, Honey dipped slices of grapefruit and oranges are first and foremost in taste. Complementary notes of tropical fruit juice rounds the beer in nearly coctail-like precision. The waves of varying flavors wash over the middle palate and fold in malty starch flavors and the grassy and herbal notes that were described in the beer's aroma. But the beer suddenly falls off in order to provide a resiny bitterness and malty dryness that lingers on the back of the throat like pine needles and fresh-cut grasses. Mild salts and metals blend into the hop bitterness and gives a glimpse into the water profiles.

Medium bodied, but the beer seems lighter because of its quick-strike dryness. The enamel clinching sweetness, hop, and alcohol textures pretend to deliver a seductive citric acidity, but the beer is focused on a dry finish and a memory of fruit. The malt textures fall off just as the bitterness comes to a crescendo, a light leafy astringency, and the alcohol dryness closes the beer with confidence.

Fat Head's Head Hunter is a fantastic IPA that doesn't simply deliver "proper" IPA flavor or become complacent on making an "error free" beer. It pushes further into the smooth bitterness, ultimate dryness, and intangible fruity hop flavors and aromas that begin to separate it from the rest.

Had at Fat Heads in Pittsburgh

A: A deep rich copper color, with a small white foam head. Very small amounts of lacing.

S: Hops? Oh yea, lots of big citrus hop scents with ample amount of pine hop as well. Not much in the way of malt, maybe some bread or caramel, was tough to distinguish with all the hops hitting the nose.

T: On the front end, the grapefruit and pine hop dominate, but the malt, a good amount of caramel are there on the back end that balance the beer out.

M: A very nice medium body beer, leaves a nice bitter taste on the palate.

D: The ABV is not over the top, so enjoying more than one of these IPA's is easy to do.

Fat Head's Had Hunter India Pale Ale, 7.5% ABV, 87 IBU. Brewed and bottled by Fat Head's Brewery, Middleburg Heights, Ohio.

Clear, golden-amber color, almost tangerine, with an enormous, thick and sturdy, creamy white head. Looking great.

Aroma: leaps on on first pour and slips into the nose. All our favorites are inside, we get the citrus and the pine, there's the bitter grapefruit, some pineapple, maybe a whiff of mango. Pleases the olfactory organ in all the best and most appropriate ways. Smelling great.

Taste: Bam! A fierce assault on the palate, delivering massive bitterness, a hefty spank on the tongue. A powerhouse blow, staying long and laying in hard. Full-bodied, immense presence on the palate, long finish.

I can go through every superlative in the thesaurus, and just keep going. This one really has it all, and it ends on a moderately mellow mood, with that high bitterness and incredible flavor level never really tapering off. There's a strain of astringent, aspirin-y character that hangs in at the back. But some of us love that and this is for us, clearly.

Unrestrained, unabashed, unhinged. But damned delicious. Incredible IPA, deserving of all kinds of praise.

"Uncivilized & Aggressive. No other ingredient stirs the passion of a master brewer like the hop. Inspired by this legendary flower we challenged ourselves to create a world class IPA. Head Hunter is an aggressively dry-hopped uncivilized, West Coast-style IPA with a huge hop display of pine, grapefruit, citrus and pineapple. A punch-you-in-the-mouth brew for those who truly love their hop! Love the lupulin. Dig the dank. Respect the resin. Do not age, Hoppy beers are best consumed fresh."

Thanks to cneville for this local extra! Pours a very nice, almost perfect looking amber and copper color with pretty decent clarity. A big, foamy white head mounts itself slowly and leaves some fat lacing as it slowly crawls back down.

The aroma begins with a solid installment of heavy, heavy tropical and citrus fruits - at first, it's almost all you can smell. Pineapple would probably be the biggest, followed by some grapefruit and tangerines. The fruits induce a subtle sweetness on the nose as well as a mild, pith-like bitterness. It doesn't take long for the hops to come alive; pine, grass, and some light and spicy white pepper. Pretty West Coast-ish just from the aroma - and that's certainly a good thing. Malt is very light and subdued, I'm not really picking much up at all.

Upon the initial sip, the beer is just a touch more watery than I would have guessed, but it's not bad by any means - perhaps I just set my expectations a bit too high after that monstrous aroma. The hops hit first on the palate; white pepper, herbal, grassy, earthy, and almost a bit dirty. Pretty raw and in-your-face - I like it. The hops aren't left alone for long; citrus makes its way into the mix, coming in more so on the bitter side of things - citrus peel, pith, skins - you name it. Oranges and tangerines jump out more and more with each successive sip, and finally add a bit of sweetness - though some of that may be from the underlying malt, which also brings a mild bread and cracker flavor to the mix, albeit cowering in comparison to the hop profile. Bitter 'til the very end with just a hint of sweetness as it fades out. Slightly sticky on the palate with a medium body and medium-high carbonation.

Damn, how did this fly under the radar for so long? This beer is fantastic. Any IPA fan will go nuts for this - very tropical and fruity aromas coupled with bitter and hoppy flavor profiles make for some of the best IPAs out there. Hopheads rejoice!

Enjoyed on tap and in bottles several times during a week long trip to the Pittsburgh area.

Bold, flavorful and super tasty IPA. Blasting with hoppy goodness. World class and so worth seeking out. In a world of hundreds of quality IPAs, this one is able to stand out and be considered one of the best ...go get some - wish I had brought more home with me

Thanks to Benesi88 for this one.

A hazy orange body with pulpy fruit, bitterness is long after and the overall feeling is creamy. These guys nail the lush fruit!

Bottle poured into a Three Floyds teku.

Pour: Clear amber orange with three fingers of off white head. Head hangs around, and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: Big citrus notes - some tangerine and orange juice. Pretty hefty caramel backbone to support.

Taste: Follows the nose for sure, with some pine mixed in as well. Malt sweetness is larger than I expected. Nice juiciness, and finishes with a resinous bitterness

Mouthfeel: Pretty sticky, and not incredibly drinkable. Fruit notes make this one nice and juicy.

Overall: Very nice IPA.

Pours hazy amber-orange with a moderate white head that retreated fairly quickly but left nice tracks. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, orange. Taste is cleanly bitter, with more citrus and some resin, slightly dank. Little malt but medium-bodied with a great feel. Clean dry finish with a bitter ring. Love this IPA.

Slightly oily body that is a mix of gold and orange full of citrus taste. The carb is on point and helps guide the hop profile across the palate. This IPA is west coast all the way. Distinctly bitter that is delicious cold and becomes a bit overpowering as it warms.

12 oz shorty brown bottle. Label consists of literally of a bright blue sky with clouds forming and the typical but great Fat Head sitting directly in the middle of the label. His style this time is of a tribal head hunter. Face paint, piercings, shades and all. Just more fun artwork from Fat Heads. Poured into a nonic pint glass.

A - fairly clear amber gold with bright golden highlights in the light. I say clear, but look close and see the tiny specs of haze particles moving about. Minimal but there. Bright white head forms nice on the pour settling to a bubbly yet clumpy ring of lacing leaving thin but plentiful stick.

S - big tropical fruit in the nose. Absolutely gushes the nose with sweet pineapple and mango goodies flowing into a kick of grapefruit, orange and pine resin. Sweet malt and slightly bready undertones lay off a complex yet very balanced nose.

T - this displays big time bitterness in the flavor profile. Suddenly those lush sweet tropical notes found in the nose turn to more grapefruit and pine resin. Like a grenade packed full of explosive bitterness going off in your mouth. Some slight pineapple toward the finish with the malt backbone turned nearly completely down. Spme floral notes and boozy alcohol spice as this warms. This is a hop heads flavor profile where the nose is more a balancing act. If you like sturdy, resinous pine and grapefruit bitterness in the mouth this is for you.

M - nice medium to full bodied with a good mouthfeel. Not quite as thick as the aroma would suggest maybe, but still near perfect for what they were aiming for with big bitter flavors and a more west coast feel. Coats very well and still comes off to me as refreshing on this humid summer night.

O - Head Hunter is a world class brew no doubt. It has me blown away with its aroma and yet even after turning into a completely different take through the flavor profile it still produces some fine results all the way around. Fat Heads brew some very good stuff and Head Hunter is up there with the best of them. A great year round offering but must be enjoyed fresh. It took me awhile to find it fresh, but drinking a few of these less than 2 weeks old really made the wait worthwhile. A must try! And one ill enjoy again.

Growler split with Ryan011235. A long review using two different glasses, Ryan's famed "E&J Cask and Cream" antique shop find glass and an over-sized snifter, carefully chosen to not be "his" snifter.

Appearance
The beer is a very light, pale gold, I'll even go as far as calling it a rustic shade of yellow. Average sized head from a rough pour from a new growler. Not much lacing and retention is but a thin skim of white bubbles.

Smell
Yeah, this aroma is about perfect. Really making up for the looks here. Its very bright and citrusy. There's not much in the way of malts, at least until the glass becomes over-swirled and room-temperatured. What malts are there are lightly toasted and crackery. Nice floral smells of orange blossom, candied tangerine, mango, pineapple. Lots of really pithy, fleshy citrus. Pine is there, but serves as a second layer to this hop-bomb aroma.

Taste
Bitterness starts stronger then the beer becomes sweetened once you have a few more sips. Lots of that dense, pithy citrus flesh with fresh pine bough and a green sapling type of woodiness. Light crackery malts show up late to the party, and become stronger once the beer warms. I think this one is best served pretty chilled. Keep this at refrigerator temp. There is a strong lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel
Reasonable carbonation that dies off with all the swirling and smelling I did. The aroma was the best part of this though! The body is dry, dry and keeps a long, bitter finish going. It really keeps the palate ready for another pour from the growler.

Overallability
This is a kick ass IPA for sure. The Pliny of Ohio? It certainly follows that style of IPA, more that Columbus IPA or Two Hearted. I think I do prefer this over Elder too. It's by leaps and bounds better than what Cleveland beer drinkers used to have as their standard, go to, local IPA.

Had both on tap and bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy light gold with a nice fluffy head and great legs.
The nose is musky and dense. A very nice blend of spice, pine and fruits backed up by a nice malt sweetness. This is not overly sweet, just the right amount with a real backbone. Very well balanced. Feels solid on the mouth, not watery at all.
On tap the funk came through and made me think of a wet dog. Very rich and drinkable just for the novelty of the funk.
A top notch IPA.

L: A dull Golden amber appearance (yellowish/orange)
S: Smells of grapefruit, pretty light though
T: Tastes like a normal IPA, bitter, with a nice jolt of grapefruit/citrus
F: This beer is extremely light while drinking it, but leaves you with the dry-ish feeling IPAs generally give you.
Overall: A good IPA in my book, I can check this off my bucket list for it being one of Ohio's top 10, but not my favorite IPA so far.

Had on tap at Fat Heads. Review from notes.

A: The beer is clear copper with a small white head on top, about an inch in height with decent retention and thin lacing down the sides.

S: Lots of pine mixed with citrus fruit on the aroma, some grapefruit and orange zest with a faint caramel. malt undertone.

T: Very piney on the flavor profile, but it isn't really coupled with the amount of bitterness I was expecting, certainly helping with the drinkability. Some tropical fruit is mixed in, mostly grapefruit and orange.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Slightly bitter finish, but rather light for a big IPA like this.

O: Very good, deserving of praise for sure.

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.

I was lucky to get to try this amazing IPA a few times during the NIPAC, plus the bottle I took home.

A lovely beer this one is. There was a slight haze in it's deep golden/copper hue that was promising from the start. I prefer my beers unfiltered as much as possible. The head on it was fine too, nice lacing.

But on the the main event. The nose on this was hits well before the glass is close to my face. It is at once "thick" in the aroma with grapefruit and a heavy dose of pine. But I don't get total hops, there is a strong malt following as well with a hint of caramel.

This one is a keeper. "Aggressive" is a great word to describe the hops here as they punch you right in the mouth and don't leave. Actually, a half hour after finishing this I can still feel/taste the hops and residual oils in my mouth. This is the only aspect subtracting a bit from overall mouthfeel and drinkability as I feel like once I have one, it's either nothing or more Headhunter due to the staying power. On the other hand, compared to other IPA's I've had in recent time this one actually has the body and grain bill to support the hops used. The body lies on the medium/medium heavy side instead of taking shortcuts and coming out too thin.

Should I ever find myself in the area this will be my first stop. I am not surprised this went on to win NIPAC this year.

A-Clear orange, nicely carbonated, two finger head.

S-Hops, citrus, grass, grapefruit, slight malt as well. What you want out of an IPA.

T-Wonderful well balanced IPA. Has a strong malt presence but but earthy and citrus hops. Ends with a nice bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, nicely carbonated and hop resins.

O-A great IPA, one of the best out there. Balance and the range of hop flavors was great.

Enjoyed this on tap at Fat’s head.

A: Pours a golden hue with a white 2-finger head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace leaving a nice trail the down glass.

S: Nice super hoppy aroma is dominant all the way through.

T: Crisp hoppy flavor that is very bitter and tart. Hints of citrus and pine in the background.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Wow – super hoppy beer! Great sipping beer @ 7.4% abv.

Had this one on tap at Fat Head's Cleveland.

A: Rich burnt orange/golden color with half an inch of head, little to no lacing

S: Wow, the citrus and pine really explodes on the nose with this one. Couldn't wait to take a drink.

T: Taste does not disappoint the big smell. Nice grapefruit, citrus, and pine flavors boldly consume the taste buds. Solid yet subtle malt backbone follows up on the back end... with a slight taste of caramel? Hops dominate over the malt enough however to satisfy my bitter cravings. Just what I like in an IPA.

M: Medium mouthful with carbonation that really dances on the tongue.

D: Very drinkable IPA, however I found myself taking my time and savoring every sip. ABV is low enough that I definitely could enjoy a handful of these on a given night.

As a side note, bartender informed me that they had recently acquired a bottling machine, done some test runs, and have a label made up. Excited to see this one on the shelves!

Appearance: Pours with just under a finger of head. Sticky lacing left behind. Color is a burnt orange color. Moderate active carbonation.

Smell: Big fruity, floral front of pineapple, kiwi, mangos, and tangerines. Impressive bouquet on the front sets up a pleasant caramel malt body. Moderate pine and resin hop tones pick up on the back end to really bring the aroma full circle.

Taste: A very rounded front of chewy malt and hop tones of some darker fruits. Brighter hops shine through on the body and continue to buzz the palate long after drinking. Pine hop tones disguise themselves well but provide an extra element to digest on the back end of this brew.

Mouthfeel: All the traditional tones of a west coast ipa make themselves known at some point. Bright fruits transition to a solid malt body which is rounded out by some well done pine accents. Carbonation is lightly done which plays well here.

Overall: Exactly what a great west coast IPA should be. Lots of different levels to this brew. Love this brighter tones which get balanced well by the malt and pine.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an English style pint glass.

Body is a crystal clear golden amber, obviously filtered. Fluffy 1 finger head that dissipated fairly quick and left decent lacing in the glass.

Smells of tons of grapefruit and pine!

Hop astringency right away with the pine, citrus and a mild mint-like flavor at the end. A nice malty sweetness rounds it out on the finish. Right amount of hops just lingering in between each sip, just enticing you to keep drinking more.

Overall: No doubt at all as to why it has won some many awards and kudos from hop heads every where! A great IPA that is hoppy as hell, yet is balanced enough to not be over abrasive. Glad to have finally gotten this one to try, bonus is there are still 2 more in the fridge!

Thanks to jzeilinger for picking up a 4 pack for me from the 'burgh!
