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!

In a trade from Barak316, thanks for the advice on this one!!!! Pours a golden orange with minimal white head. Terrific tracing. AWESOME IPA with great hop flavor but is well balanced. One of the best I have ever had.

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.

Pours clear golden honey/lt amber with a medium white head...bright with decent lacing and retention. Aroma has lots of grapefruit and some mild hoppy spice. Flavor is more piney...still a bit of grapefruit and spice. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a dry piney bitter finish.
