COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uncivilized and aggressive this west coast styled IPA packs wicked hop flavors and aroma. Savage amounts of Simcoe, Columbus, and Cascade hops define this brews signature pine and citrus notes. Try with our smoked wings in the Killer sauce and run the risk of a shrunken head!

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.

Location/Date:Bottle on August 1st, 2013. Happy IPA Day!

Appearance: Pours an orange cloud.
Aroma: Aroma of a lot of pine, grapefruit.
Taste: Medium bitterness, clean, grapefruit, pine.
Palate:Medium light body, faint stickiness, quick aftertaste.

Summary: I canít believe I never had this when I visited Westlake,OH as North Olmsted is just south of there. Anyway, a really enjoyable IPA that is accessible and not overbearing. Nice stuff.

One2remeber (245) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2013
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.

Boutip (5856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle: Poured a bright clear orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some a good lacing. Aroma consists of fruity ester with some citrus hoppy notes and light sweet malt notes. Taste is also dominated by citrusy hops with fresh sweet fruity notes and some lightly sweet malt notes with limited level of bitterness. Body is about average with good carbonation. Definitely above standard IPA from those guys.

Jethro6191 (506) - Indiana, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Pours a dark gold with a huge fluffy white head. Nice lacing. Sweet malt, orange peel, grapefruit, and tropical fruit aromas. Similar flavors with a strong resinous bitterness at the beginning that fades towards a more fruity citrus flavor. The finish is fairly dry leaving just a slight hoppy bitterness on the back of the tongue. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and moderate to high level of carbonation. This is a very good IPA.

Draft in a pint glass. Aggressive hops - in a good way with a powerful bittering. Syrupy malt adds a real body. Color is beautiful and of the style (orangey copper). Lacing is viscous but does dissipate.
