Sadly Fat Heads opened just as I moved from CLE so I was never able to visit. I have to make a trek down to the old stomping grounds. bottle via MikeM409 and his awesome generosity. Pours golden with a slight off white head with great retention. Nose full of grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. This theme continues in the mouth, with emphasis on grapefruit. Solid malt character that is not over burden with crystal malt. Solid body, what a treat!

Bottle. Pours golden amber with off-white had. Aroma is sweet fruity orange grapefruit piney. Taste is Taste is sweet malty hoppy with a piney grapefruit finish. Very well balanced with hoppy finish and good, however my preference is the less malty IPAs.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lots of citrus in this and a very nice malt backbone. Bitter finish. Bigger body here than most of the other hop bombs Ive had tonight. Good, but certainly not a 100/100 beer. Tap at city tap house.

Super solid ipa. Very fresh tasting with solid balance. Itís got the whole double ipa hops without the double ipa commitment to being hungover via 13% behemoth beer. I like it a lot.

FLAVOR: Intense dank bitterness. Delectable combination of fruit juice concentrate, bitter citrus pith and some pine/green tea on the finish. Malt is strong enough to offer balance, but is not sweet or distinguishable. 17/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body; crisp and well carbonated. Alcohol is subtle and slightly warming but tolerable. Dry, slightly astringent aftertaste. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: A standard IPA that goes above and beyond. Palette is a bit familiar, but execution is impressive. 9/10
TOTAL SCORE: 43/50
