4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours gold with a medium white head. Aroma is off the charts! - pineapple, mango, guava & faint pine. Taste is almost perfect (this may become my highest scoring beer) with sweet mango and tropical flavors followed by a supremely easy bitter finish. You can taste the sun in this beer. Wow!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle, thanks DalzAle for grabbing a 4 pack for me! Pours hazy orange with a nice soapy sudsy off white head that settles to a thin wispy foamy film and some sticky lacing. Aroma is bright bitter resinous pine grapefruit and subtle pineapple citrus scents with a candied malt backing. Taste is bitter resinous hops that consist with the above and has a great malt balance. Palate is medium with good carbonation and a slightly chalky dry finish. Very enjoyable and shows awesome flavor.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2015 Says bottled July 30, 2013, enjoyed August 2, 2013. That is fresh, and I am impressed that it got to Florida within a day from Ohio (arrived at shop on July 31!). Pours a yellowish orange, hazy, with a very small white head. Aroma is big mango and pine hops, grapefruit, pineapple, lots of citrus. Flavor is a nice big bitter with beautiful mango flavor with hints of lime zest. High carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Good beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled on 07/20/13.
Vibrant copper, orange hue. Off-white, light beige head, average retention, nice lacing.
Fresh hops jumping out of a glass, could smell when pouring. Hop notes of white cane sugary candy, pine, tropical (mango) fruit, reminiscent of CC Jai Alai for hop profile.
Solid caramel malt bill, enough sweetness to carry juicy pineapple hops. Resiny aftertaste. Hop flavor is fresh.
Highly recommend HH. This is an eye-opener brew as a personal first from Fat Headís. One of the most well-balanced, over-the-top hop flavors while remaining in check.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a bright clear orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some a good lacing. Aroma consists of fruity ester with some citrus hoppy notes and light sweet malt notes. Taste is also dominated by citrusy hops with fresh sweet fruity notes and some lightly sweet malt notes with limited level of bitterness. Body is about average with good carbonation. Definitely above standard IPA from those guys.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark gold with a huge fluffy white head. Nice lacing. Sweet malt, orange peel, grapefruit, and tropical fruit aromas. Similar flavors with a strong resinous bitterness at the beginning that fades towards a more fruity citrus flavor. The finish is fairly dry leaving just a slight hoppy bitterness on the back of the tongue. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and moderate to high level of carbonation. This is a very good IPA.
