12oz bottle poured into glass. Glad I was finally able to get my chance at trying some Head Hunter. This is just a great all around IPA. Great hoppy aroma mixed with citrus. Flavor is a little dry with a nice malt backing. Superb beer! Hair6a11 (1481) - Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle; Pour is somewhat murky medium golden with a frothy / chunky off white head in this glass. It retains on the average side, with sticky foamy lacing present as well. The nose is light tropicals, pine and some grass, with caramel and bread rounding it out. The flavor profile is near world class for me. Bittering hops present themselves with pine resin, and more grass, moving to the sweet caramel note, and finally some mild tropical elements (grapefruit, mango), but I find that it is slightly subdued in comparison to some california brethren, and that is holding this one back for me. basalygatim (5) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013 does not count
A very nice mild ipa very flavorful. I like it even if is made in Ohio. A beer that I could drink all night. Beers TheBeerGod (6284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Kevin at Grape and Gourmet via Chicago Mike. Thanks! Hazy amber with a tall, fluffy white head. Aroma is hop heavy with strong resinous hops, floral hops, big citrus, tropical fruit and caramel notes. Taste is sweet malt, huge hops, citrus notes, pine resins, tropical fruit, caramel and floral notes. Body is medium with a creamy carbonation and a slight resinous feel. Moderate lingering bitterness. Ends like it began - large hop profile with citrus, tropical fruit, pine, floral hops and caramel. Lovely! brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2013
UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 Pours a classic sunset orange color with a finger length white head that goes down slowly and leaves a thick lacing. Pretty good carbonation coming off the glass. Smells like an ipa should. Lots of resinous pine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, maybe some papaya. Tiny bit of a bready malt presence. Pretty dry. Taste starts with the resinous pine, grapefruit, and orange. Then there is a decent malt presence that brings some carmel and breadiness to balance it a little. Very resinous, dry finish with more pine, grapefruit, some pineapple, papaya, along with some sweetness to cut the hops. Almost like a bubblegum flavor. The hops get more abrasive as it goes down. Pretty hefty body for a single ipa. Creamy and surprisingly clean mouthfeel for such a hoppy beer due to the lively carbonation. Extremely well done ipa that lives up to the hype in my opinion..

Pours nearly clear, amber-orange with a frothy, off-white head.
Aroma of strong pine and orange peel.
Flavour is intensely bitter of the same.
Underlying sweetness works perfectly.
This one just walks all over you....
Truly a superior IPA..... arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Big thanks to CruisaC for sending me this one. Orange-yellow color with the slightest haze, good thick foam of a head. Smells like resiny hops, a little . Flavor is super hoppy, very bitter finish, slight bit of malt holding it all together. Whew, this is very bitter. Overall a good IPA and it is what the label says but this can’t touch the west coast. Maybe I need one straight off the bottling line.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Clear golden color with frothy white head. Aroma is a hop BOMB. Big pine and citrus flavor, overwhelming all else. Taste is extremely bitter and mildly sweet from the malt. Mouthfeel is medium and crisp. Big hoppy IPA, love it. Denverdiv (30) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2013
12oz bottle from jsquire - Thank You!! Pours golden amber, head is thick, just off white. Fragrant to the nose, like Jennifer Garner blowing me a hop kiss. Slight pine and resin. On the tongue it’s like Jennifer and I are having passionate love. We meet in the woods, we are holding hands, as this beer rolls over my tongue, Jennifer pulls me close to her naked body, I feel her delicious warmth all over my tongue. Perfect balance, I’m in love.
