Got one bottle as an extra acquired from a trade. Nice bright orange with white head. Incredible aroma on this. Tropical smells. Wow!!! The taste is amazing. Drinks like a DIPA. Exactly like it smells. The best I had for this style. Could knock down a whole pack.

Easily the best session ipa I've personally had. Sorry stone go to, but the fat man has u beat. Huge tropical hop extravaganza. If you are looking for a balanced beer, look elsewhere. This is like sweet hop soda. So damn good. And plentiful in NE Ohio.

I can't believe this is a session IPA. This has a delicious citrus / orange flavor. Also a great malt backbone. I could drink this all day. Another great beer from Fat Heads

L: Orange, small one inch white head.

S: Most distinct pineapple I've ever smelled in an IPA. Followed by mango and a whole bouquet of fruit medley. Really aced the smell.

T: Less pineapple, more mango on the palate. Big hit of fruit cocktail, then it's a surprisingly herbal hop it in the finish. Finish is delightfully bitter. A really stellar combo between the smell coming in for a sip, more fruit, slight malt, then that distinctly IPA finish.

F: Pretty heavily carbonated. A little lighter than I wanted, but hey it's kind of a session (4.9%).

O: I would drink this all day. So fruity yet so hoppy in the finish. The smell takes the cake for me. I'd love to see a DIPA with a thicker, stickier mouthfeel with this kind of scent. Got this in a mix 'n match, wish I had 5 more.
