3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Moerlein Lager House. Pours a clear orange-hued golden color with a small eggshell-white head. Nice immediate pop in the aroma- orange and grapefruit citrus, tropical fruits (mango, papaya), fresh cut herbs, and sweet malts. The flavor starts the same but loses a little of the initial character as it warms and becomes increasingly bitter along the way. Lots of citrus peel, which dominates the malts and more nuanced hop characteristics. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, fruity mouthfeel. Overall, very solid IPA that Iíd like to try again and canít believe I havenít had before.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber with a small white head. Aroma of fruity hops and sticky sweet caramels. Flavor has lots of floral hops kick with some pine and a bit of plastic. Bitter finish, sweet. This beer seems like a shell of what people are rating it, most likely an old bottle. No date on bottle = bad news.

Lots and lots of hops on both aroma and palate, surprising at only 77IBU. Hop forward, malt back

Only IPA better than this that I have had is Hoppin Frog; Hoppin to Heaven. Head Hunter is one of the best beers I have had.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy orange, peach, mango, and light grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a two finger orange tinged off-white head with good retention. Thereís some nice webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a burst of fruit that consists of moderate orange, mango, and a touch of peach. The finish has moderate grapefruit.Itís light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, this is outstanding. Please get this up to Michigan!

Pours ruby with a fluffy dissipating head. Aroma is incredible. Huge citrus and grapefruit, with some piney notes. Taste is bitter and spicy with a prominent lemon note. Moderate carb.

bottle. citrus and melony aroma hop aroma. aggressive hop addition but still a remarkably smooth palate is the success of this beer. a medium light bodied brew with a long grassy, citrusy finish with a melony coolness.

This is very nice. Aroma is lightly stinky, grass, some orange, cat piss. Flavor is more towards the cascade and columbus side, quite bitter lingering in the finish. Awesomeness. The extreme assertive bitterness in the finish is the only real complaint here.
