Fat Headís Shakedown
12oz bottle from Delocks. Very dark brown pour with a bit of a head. Aroma has sweet caramel, licorice, some light pine, and some ash. Taste is of sweet malts, licorice, light caramel, ash, and some citrus - perhaps grapefruit. Medium to full-bodied with some alcohol presence, the blend is quite good. And the carbonation is solid. Finishes more sweet than bitter but the ash kicks in with a solid presence in the finish. This is very tasty, whatever the style really is. 14.3

On tap at the Melt location in Mentor. Hazy golden yellow pour, nice little white head. Pretty solid with the undistinguishable hops. Kinda just hopped to all hell, and I mean that in a good way. Iím not sure Iíd call it "balanced" like the description says, but Iíd definitely call it delicious.

[ keg ][ 12oz ][ @Fatheads (Pgh) ][ $6 ][ snifter ][ 12.24.15 ]Hazy amber, thin white ring head, great lacing. Resinous orange nose, biting with low sweetness but considerable caramel malt presence. More tangerine resin up front, malt lighter than nose, dry with dusty mid palate, grainy paper dry bitterness lasting through softly tangy finish. Body is perfect, smooth with lower carb, balances malt profile so not too filling.

Fat Headís Sunshine Daydream Session IPA
Sixer from Wegmans. Let me first say that i donít like Headhunter. Iím that guy. Pours slightly cloudy dark yellow. light frothy head and lacing. Dandelion nose. Mouthfeel is light with a little too much carbonation. Flavors are minerals, peach, lemon. Just enough bitterness to keep it interesting. Really liked this one. barely a session IPA but even for a regular IPA, itís a good one. iíll buy again.

Fat Headís / Widmer Rauch You Like A Hurricane
Draft at Chuckís CD. Aroma is powerful with a very strong but almost artificial smoke. Itís sweet caramel and smoke in a large bomb. Comes off as artificial salami additive. Not sure what that is, maybe liquid smoke additive? Itís like salty, weird. Hevk, itíd a smoked but definitely not to the caliber of the breweries that know what they are doing.
