3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Grapefruit and pine are the primary aromas. A hazy golden amber pour with a white ring and no lacing. The taste resembles the nose - strong grapefruit and pine flavors. There are fhints of sweetness which are quickly dominated by a strong bitter finish and aftertaste. Medium body and crisp carbonation. Overall, a delightful, but very hoppy, IPA. Would drink again. (Thanks to Sammy for the trade.)

Bottle. Pours a deep orangish god color with a medium thick head. Tropical fruit scents and strong hops. Taste is very very crisp but with a very clean after taste. Awesome.

Probably my favorite ipa so far. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada pale ale, the beer that got me into craft beer. I think this one tops it though.

Pours gold with a medium white head. Aroma is off the charts! - pineapple, mango, guava & faint pine. Taste is almost perfect (this may become my highest scoring beer) with sweet mango and tropical flavors followed by a supremely easy bitter finish. You can taste the sun in this beer. Wow!

12 oz. bottle, thanks DalzAle for grabbing a 4 pack for me! Pours hazy orange with a nice soapy sudsy off white head that settles to a thin wispy foamy film and some sticky lacing. Aroma is bright bitter resinous pine grapefruit and subtle pineapple citrus scents with a candied malt backing. Taste is bitter resinous hops that consist with the above and has a great malt balance. Palate is medium with good carbonation and a slightly chalky dry finish. Very enjoyable and shows awesome flavor.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2015 Says bottled July 30, 2013, enjoyed August 2, 2013. That is fresh, and I am impressed that it got to Florida within a day from Ohio (arrived at shop on July 31!). Pours a yellowish orange, hazy, with a very small white head. Aroma is big mango and pine hops, grapefruit, pineapple, lots of citrus. Flavor is a nice big bitter with beautiful mango flavor with hints of lime zest. High carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Good beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled on 07/20/13.
Vibrant copper, orange hue. Off-white, light beige head, average retention, nice lacing.
Fresh hops jumping out of a glass, could smell when pouring. Hop notes of white cane sugary candy, pine, tropical (mango) fruit, reminiscent of CC Jai Alai for hop profile.
Solid caramel malt bill, enough sweetness to carry juicy pineapple hops. Resiny aftertaste. Hop flavor is fresh.
Highly recommend HH. This is an eye-opener brew as a personal first from Fat Headís. One of the most well-balanced, over-the-top hop flavors while remaining in check.
