4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sadly Fat Heads opened just as I moved from CLE so I was never able to visit. I have to make a trek down to the old stomping grounds. bottle via MikeM409 and his awesome generosity. Pours golden with a slight off white head with great retention. Nose full of grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. This theme continues in the mouth, with emphasis on grapefruit. Solid malt character that is not over burden with crystal malt. Solid body, what a treat!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rcvd in trade. Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a transparent somewhat golden/orange and slightly yellow colored body with a spectacular looking one finger white foamy head that once it starts dieing. The lacing is just so thick and clingy, nice show.
The smell has bitter hoppiness up front, primarily a nice combination of a citrus/pine-like substance of sorts, slightly spiciness of sorts plays nicely in the background.
The taste has a nice combination of a bittersweetness that plays very nicely with the spicy flavoring coming from the aroma, dry piney aftertaste and finish.
The palate has a nice light to medium body, and is fairly sessionable. Carbonation is great for an AIPA as a more than adequate sharpness invades my tongue and mouth.
Overall, I can see why so many people really like this one and if I could get it on a daily basis, I’m pretty sure I would too.

Bottle from my dad in NE Ohio. Thanks! Poured into snifter at home. Copper color with thick white head and great spiral lacing. Aroma of pine, resin, hay, grass and citrus. The taste was similar but very well balanced out with the malts. Fairly light but packed full of flavors. Well carbed, nice finish with bitter finale. Awesome IPA.

Golden orange pour, typical ipa appearance. Smells like citrus mixed with wild flowers and just a touch of pine resin. Taste is bitter floral notes, tart fruit, and dry malt. Finishes quite dry.

A great, great west coast IPA. Nose is bursting with citrus and resin and slight hints of tropical fruits. Flavors follow, bits of lime and grapefruit and hints of mango, nice solid bitterness to keep the beer from being sweet. Just amazing stuff.
