COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Overhead is an American-style Imperial IPA. This beer is loaded with our favorite hops; Amarillo, Columbus, Centennial and Simcoe. Its bittered with a gigantic charge of Columbus and Simcoe early in the kettle that is followed by several rounds of late kettle and whirlpool hops using Amarillo, Centennial and Simoce. In the end, Overhead is brewed with over 5 pounds of hops per barrel which includes two rounds of dry hopping to create a cascade of pine, resin and citrus hop flavors that consume your palate. Although we brew Overhead with the same imported Pilsner and light crystal malts as Head High and ferment it with our house ale strain to produce a dry crisp finish, this blend of different hops creates an entirely new experience all its own.

At Pour House on draft. Cloudy yellow - looks more like a wheat beer than IPA. Nose is classic IPA - grapefruit, pine. Taste is heavy citrus, with a very smooth hop bite. Great IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

poisoneddwarf (2475) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - MAR 19, 2017
16 oz can thanks to Eds FBW contest. Aroma is earthy, cat piss, tropical fruit, citrus, orange creamsicle. Pours cloudy orange with a thick bone white head with great retention. Taste starts out mildly bitter and candy sweet with flavors matching the aroma; a pithy medium high level bitterness lingers on the back end long after the swallow. ABV is hidden well; tastes like a single IPA. Mouthfeel is creamy with tight compact bubbles. Nice beer.

Homer321 (4653) - Melboring, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2017
Can thanks to dmac! nose is huge in citrus with a light pithy, skinny fruit aroma. light pine. hazy pale orange to gold pout with a small white head. Taste is a citrus bomb. not an explosion but a solid bomb. Solid fruit expression from the hops, light tropical notes along with the citrus. A solid traditionally hopped DIPA without all that mess of caramel and toffee. Gud!

dagimp (991) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2017
From a growler purchased at Joe Canals West Deptford. Pours a hazy orange with a few inches of frothy white head. no lacing. Nice orange and peach aroma. Mouthfeel is somewhere between an IPA and a IIPA. Perfect carb. Taste is grapes, mango, peach and orange. Mild bitterness. Fabulous IIPA thats not too overpowering. Just an excellent beer.

Dogbrick (12565) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2016
This beer is a clear bright orange color with a medium bone white head that dissipates gradually to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of piney hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of melon, resiny hops and biscuit malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hop aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

On tap at the Dinosaur BBQ in Newark. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of tropical fruits, some caramel and malts. The taste was similar to the aroma with more tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, caramel and malts. It had a dry, bitter hoppy finish. Really good.

Pours golden amber with a medium white head. Aroma is earthy, caramel, floral and citrus. Taste is bitter with some sweetness coming through. Medium bodied with a slick texture, somewhat lighter then expected. Nice Double IPA but no where near as good as their regular IPA.
