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.

On tap pours amber color with off white head. Aroma is some biscuit with hop pine. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is astringent hops and has a grainy finish. Just ok.
