Fat Headís Hop JuJu Imperial IPA
A delicious old school IIPA. Dank with heavy pine and lemon smells. Dark clear gold with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was strong and hoppy with not much malt muddying up the water. This was like thick hop juice with the heavy pine and lemon flavors dominating and a nice wet hot bitter hoppy finish. Good carbonation. Awesome beer that has been better from the bottle than on draft

Fat Headís Wok the Jasbah Jasmine IPA
Appearance: Medium amber. Hazy. Half a finger of white foam. Nose: Floral hops with aspects of citrus and herbal. Mildly sweet. a touch bitter Taste: Very mild herbal hops overshadowed by floral hops. Mild malt sweetness. Body: medium to lighter with lively carbonation Parting thoughts: Jasmine is an interesting flavor infusion. It is paired well with the floral hops, but itís still quite different.

Fat Headís IBUsive IPA
On tap @ JRís. What else can be said? Iím not a fan of IPA but FH is known for their terribly on style mouth coating palate wrecking IPA (and this borders on double IPA), so, if you like this style ignore my humanistic not by style ratings.

Tap. Pours a slightly hazy gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is tropical fruit hoppiness with a pale bready malt base. The flavor is juicy tropical hoppiness, light pale malt, a touch of yeastiness. Light bitterness that lingers a bit on the finish. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice session IPA.

Fat Headís Trail Head Pale Ale
Bottled on 01/05/17. This beerís appearance is a medium sized sudsy off-white head that is fully lasting, golden transparent body, fizzy, lively carbonation observed, and a fair amount of lacing adorns the glass. The aroma consists of citrus hops, pine hops, tropical fruit, spicy, bitter hops, grapefruit, earthy, toasty, and caramel malt. The flavor is moderate bitterness. The mouthfeel is lively carbonation and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this is a very refreshing and very tasty APA. The flavors come together very well and made this an enjoyable to drink and rate. It is worth trying and definitely a beer that I would buy again.

Bottle at home, dated 02/16/2017. Thanks Jeff! Pours copper, white head fades quickly to a film. Aroma is piney, spicy, a bit of citrus and toast. Taste is big sticky pine, honey sweetness followed by a bitter citrusy finish. Well pronounced bitterness that is not overpowered by sweetness. Heavier mouthfeel, smooth, faint alcohol burn. Moderate carbonation. Tasty beer!

Fat Headís Head Hunter IPA
Growler from Trenton Road Takeout in Falsington, PA. Bright Amber gold topped by a small frothy beige head. Fragrant citrus hop nose explodes on the pour. Wonderful buttery, toasted malt flavor upfront. Then comes the rush of citrus and pine hops. Bitter, yet not over done. Complex and spicy with notes of mango, pineapple and tangerine. Finish becomes peppery with pine and grapefruit notes. Just a splendid example of a West Coast style IPA. Worth seeking out.

Fat Headís Bumble Berry Honey Blueberry Ale
from a 12 oz bottle. I didnít think Iíd like this one... and I was right. Tasted like a crappy red ale with blueberries tossed in. Way too much carbonation too. Eh, Iíd pass.

Fat Headís Built for Speed IPA
On tap @ Chuckís CD. Pours clear bright yellow golden with thin white head. Aroma is bright juicy light citrus rind, grainy malt. Taste is likewise - juicy lemony/orange citrus notes from the hops, malt is light with a decided grain note prominent. Not bad but pretty light for an IPA and not nearly as good as some of Fat Headís other IPAs.

Fat Headís Head Hunter IPA
Poured into a pint glass from a growler. Hoppy nose, white head, light brown/golden hue, and cobweb lacing. Incredible hop taste that is both citrus and dank, earthy herb. One of the best; in my upper tier with Bells Two-Hearted and Stone IPA. A good deal at Pinnochioís in Media, PA. Cheers!

Well I liked it. A true dark dipa. Not a hopped stout. Dark cola color, nice aroma and plenty of hops. Some backbone, but if I had a wish it would be for a little more.

Fat Headís Head Hunter IPA
12 oz bottle poured, sent over by Pruf. Thanks! Always fun to try a top 50 IPA. A mostly clear golden pour. Aromatic hop quality from quite a distance. Flavor is a bitter piney constant, flavorful, and very tasty. Thicker body to this. Cool late, and the flavor turns a little more to the citrus side as it lingers. A juicy side to it as well. A solid IPA here for sure. Iíd love to be able to throw a pint of this down regularly. Awesome.

Sampled on draft this beer poured a dark brown color with orange highlights and a huge foamy tan head that left excellent lacing. The aroma was molasses, fig, raisin, pine and grapefruit. The flavor was sweetish with molasses, tobacco, leather, roasty malts, pine, grapefruit and black licorice. Very long finish. Full bodied. Well done!

Fat Headís Hop JuJu Imperial IPA
Pour burnt orange with a one finger off white head with outstanding lacing. Aroma is of straight up weed, citrus, tropical fruits, resinous pine, herbal hops, and grassy hops. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with some onion/garllic dank flavors. Has a medium-fulll body with a creamy mouthfeel and dry, pretty bitter, long, lingering finish. Overall, a fantastic, super dank DIPA that is very similar to Stoneís Enjoy By.
