In this beer blog, we are going to get into Fat Head Brewery for the first time. It is also the first time you will see Head Hunter IPA on this blog. They opened their doors in 2009 outside of Cleveland, Ohio. They team up with Fat Head Saloon from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that open their doors back in 1992. They have several location around the country. Let us get into this IPA.
It has a clear golden color with a white constant head. The aroma has a grapefruit, citrus to hints of pineapple notes. The taste of this full body IPA has a citrus to grapefruit notes with a heavy dry bitter aftertaste. It is a sipping beer for some craft beer drinkers but others will find it is kind of drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.fatheadsbeer.com):
No other ingredient stirs the passion of a Master Brewer like the hop. Inspired by this legendary flower we challenged ourselves to create a world class IPA. Head Hunter is an aggressively dry-hopped, West Coast-Style IPA with a huge hop display of pine, grapefruit, citrus and pineapple. A punch-you-in-the-mouth brew for those who truly love their hops! Uncivilized? Yes. Aggressive? Absolutely. Award Winning? Hell yes!
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I was pretty impressed about this beer. There is a nice balance from the hops and malt. It is a well balance beer. They did a great job on this beer. There is a great selection of hops giving a some nice grapefruit to juicy citrus notes. I love it and I will get more of this great beer. I just wish it was in a six pack not a four pack. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
