COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Growler from Fat Headís in Cleveland. Delightfully dank, piney hop aroma. Appearance is a pleasing, golden glow (although a bit too carbonated on this go-around). Taste has grown increasingly assertive since I first sampled this beer but itís a change for the better. Palate has strengthened as well. Quite similar to the the Head Hunter but for a more discernible maltiness and a more complex floral finish as opposed to tongue-wagging bitterness. Awesome beer.

Aroma: Pine and citrus hops with hints of bready malts underneath. Appearance: Clear orange with a thick, white head. Taste: Heavy bitterness with a light sweetness underneath. Palate: Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation with a long finish. Overall: Not so hoppy as to be obnoxious, but the hops are definitely there. The balance is well crafted and appealing.

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.

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

Cliff (399) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2009
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.

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.

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.

Tmoney99 (10675) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2011
Tap sample. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy resin hop and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and falt carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable brew that exceeded my expectations.

Sample. Very good APA. Tons of sticky, piney resiny hops here. Nice body but great hop flavor. maybe a tad heavy of the pine but nonethe less a great APA

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,
