Deep golden color out of the tap with a sticky white head. Great hop nose of tropical fruit, red grapefruit, lemongrass and a whiff of cat urine. This is an aggressively hoppy beer with mango, grapefruit zest, pine and bitter orange in the finish. Firm enough malts. Was very good with the Bay of Pigs sandwich.

Another great IPA by fatheads, flavor profile and intensity made me think it was a DIPA. Wonderful citrus fruit flavors in the aroma and flavors. Would like to try this side by side with headhunter.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Winter Warmer Fest 2014
Fat Heads may have outdone themselves with this remarkable IPA. Keeping up a tradition of excellence it is an abusive hop bomb from the first sniff to the final sip. This is just one of many reasons to visit their tasting room or brewpub.
Aroma / Appearance - A coppery semitransparent base looks a bit like a melted creamsicle. Bright earthy hops, lemons, citrus, and tropical fruits explode in the air like a Fourth of July party.
Flavor / Palate - Citrus is bright, crisp, and aggressive like licking gritty sandpaper. The hops continue their assault for a few more minutes until a bitter transition that is sticky in the throat. Just as good as something like Dreadnaught or White Rajah this is worth seeking out fresh.

On tap at Fat Heads, pours a copper amber with minimal head. Initial smells of citrus hit you and then fades into a bitter hoppy taste. Fairly dry finish with a medium-heavy body. Similar to Hopslam, but not quite as good. Definitely recommend it though.

Growler @ Richardís tasting. Clear orange pour with a white head. Great fruit to the nose. Apricot, grapefruit, and some pineapple. Nice pine, light doughy malt, and a subtle sweetness. Flavors of pineapple, grapefruit, and apricot. Light dough sweetness, some bitter pine, and a dry finish.
