12 oz bottle. Almost clear rusty orange with an ivory head. Nose is orange, caramel and catty hops. Body is quite chewy oozing resin; dense with residual stickiness. Taste is dried pineapple, citrus peel and grapefruit juice. As advertised this stuff is as dank as good Cali bud.

I stumbled across Fat Headís during a business trip in Cleveland a couple years ago; Iím a Michigan native. I tried this beer first, and I was completely blown to find a world-class IPA being produced by a brewery that up until that point, I hadnít heard of. I have been singing their praises ever since.
Now that it is available in bottles, I was fortunate to get my hands on it once again. Everything about this West-coast style IPA is top notch. Intense pine and fruit aroma, and the taste is enough to stimulate the palate of even the most grizzled IPA veterans. A must try.

GTMW. Amber-orange pour. Nose is big piney grapefruit and mango. Ultra clean and fresh grapefruity pine and woody herbal hop bitterness. Solid malt backing helps this to not be too dry on the finish. An excellent IPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Squat bottle. Pours hazy deep golden with 3-finger off-white head that laces copiously. Nose is huge tropical fruit including tangerine, mango, melon, and black pepper. Tastes caramel malty, but the hops are the highlight; a resiny, mangoey, tangeriney, black peppery hop bite that kicks in at mid-palate. The Simcoe hops take center stage here, with the others rounding them out. This is a very good IPA.
