A one off brew that is brewed with one hop strain, the CTZ hop. CTZ is a hybrid combo hop of Columbus/Tomahawk/Zeus. Big and dank in the nose, with great piney/citrusy hop flavors up front but balanced beautifully by sweet toasty, bready malt. Finished hoppy, but with a clean sweet maltiness that makes you come back for more. 6% ABV

draft - Pours hazy yellow with a lasting white head. The aroma is mainly citrus hops. It tastes quite bitter with plenty of citrus. The body is medium and overall itís a good though not great quaff.

This poured a bright orange color with a white head. Aroma was loads of piney dank hops, and not much else, just hoppy goodness. Flavor was much the same, piney and some grapefruit too, punishingly bitter for an APA. Another great hop bomb from Fat Heads.

Growler fill after sample at Fat Heads in OH. Pours an orangish gold with a little bit of a head (although the sample at Fat Heads had a decent head.) Aromas are full of floral and lemony hops with a little bit of a passion fruit side to them. Flavor is grassy, with lots of citrus and tropical fruit. The malty presence is honey and dough, finish is sharp hops bitterness. Very good and there is a definite connection with the Head Hunter here.

I really liked this APA, sampled at Penn Brewery. Strong hop presence! Aroma was mostly that flat citrus and pine of a good IPA. Pour was a surprisingly light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was delicious! Strong citrus hops around every corner. The grapefruit like bitterness overshadows any malt that dares show itís presence. Nice bread/yeast thickness in the front and in the aftertaste. Good carbonation and all around good beer,

Tap @ Fat Headís. Pours a hazy dark gold body with a minimal foamy white head. More floral hop nose than citrus with some doughy pale maltiness. The flavor is doughy malts under a citrusy, but not bitter hoppiness. Itís a bit too clingy and bready for me, but itís not terrible. Medium bodied, a bit sticky, with moderate fizzy carbonation. Not a big fan of this one.

JaBier (4956) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. Cloudy orange pour with a big white head. Citrusy hop nose with a bit of sweet malt. Hop flavor that is piney and citrusy with a bit of malt and a very bitter finish.

draft- nice resiny/piney hop flavor backed up by a pretty firm malt backbone- very drinkable, and a highlight at fat heads-

On tap, poured a clear deep golden color. Nice dank hoppy aroma with a bit of malt sweetness in the background. Really nice hoppy flavor balance with some grainy caramel flavors. Really easy drinking and a well crafted pale ale.

7/14/2009: Fat Headís Pack-A-Wollop S.P.A. (Strong Pale Ale) is a great pale ale. It has lots of sweet orange citrus hops with a soft pale and toffee malt base. The flavor has lots of grapefruit, so it is even more citrusy than the aroma. There is a mild to moderate level of bitterness. The beer has a clear, shiny copper color with a dense, creamy, lasting beige head and near solid lacing. Overall I REALLY enjoyed this beer.

Sample (draught; 6.0% abv; 66 ibu) at the Catís Eye in Athens, Ohio during Ohio Brew Week 2009. Rating #3 for this beer.
