Fat Head's Hop JuJu

Fat Heads does hoppy beers just about as well as anybody in the Midwest. This seasonal imperial IPA never disappoints!

Good point. Their stouts leave more to be desired, but IPAs and APAs are killer!

I'm headed to Fat Heads Portland tonight, so I'll put this on my list to try.  The other night I had the Fat Heads Semper FIPA and I didn't like it at all.  The Equinox hops were very oniony/garlicy to me.  My wife liked it, but I didn't.

Kinda liked their Shakedown Stout.

I keep trying to get JuJu but they never send it down here.

Shakedown is their best stout. Oompa Loompa is pretty bad. As good as Shakedown is, their hoppy beers are that much better. Hop JuJu is great, but I don't know if it really beats Head Hunter, their staple IPA. Which, i assume if you've had any Fat Heads in Florida, you've had it. Trail Head APA and Midnight Moonlight Black IPA are also both killer.

Good to know - I do love Head Hunter - one of my top IPAs.  We only get HH, Jack Straw Pils, Sunshine Daydream, and some blueberry something or other.  Occasionally, some random things, such as Shakedown.

Bumbleberry... Chicks dig the bumbleberry.

I'm pretty sure Midnight Moonlight is usually a limited seasonal. They might only distribute kegs, because I've only seen it in kegs.

Hop Stalker is their fresh hopped IPA released in the late fall. It's also really good.

Full disclosure - I make fruit beers for my wife and occasionally enjoy a pint. She and her friends drain 98% of them, but I'll have a pint here and there. Secret - WY3522 works really nicely in a fruit beer, to give some nice Belgian character to the fruit. So far my man card hasn't been revoked. You never know though, I may be on thin ice .   ;D
