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.
