Taster at the brewery in Rocky River... Citrus hops aroma... Flavor was malty with a nice hoppy finish, better than your typical pale ale... Kind of a junior IPA... Pretty good

Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a clear pale orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Piney hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, pine and malt. The finish is hoppy with a moderately bitter aftertaste that lingers. Decent overall.

On tap at Pittís brewpub location. Yellow pour, white head. Piney hops, citrus, slightly floral, with biscuity malt. Very nice and refershing. If 6% can be sessionable, this is a good session beer.

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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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,

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
