Pours from a can a very hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is subtle orange and pine. Taste is straight grapefruit and pine with a little floral after taste. Leaves a bitter after taste.

Pours yellow cloudy with a white head. Huge tropical fruit, peaches, pineapple. Taste is citra, grapefruit, a little bit sweet. Big bitter aftertaste, incredibly refreshing. It’s up there with Heady Topper.

HUGE tropical fruit and peachy aromas. Creamy white head and creamy body. Cloudy nectarine colour. Taste is tropical fruits and pleasant grapefruit bitterness. This is smooth as heck, this could be drank all day if it weren’t 7%.

Beerman6686 (4591) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2014
This poured a hazy light orange color with a white head. Aroma was big tropical fruits and not much else, why would anything else be needed? Flavor was similar, minimal bitterness, super juicy. Waaaaay better than heady.

Hazy yellow-orange color with small off white head. Bursting with aroma of citrusy hops. Medium body, light carbonation. Flavor matches aroma, citrus hops, malt structure but not too prominent in the flavor. Bitterness level just right. For the inevitable comparison to heady topper I would say it’s overall similar, less intense but more drinkable.

Blind tasting, of Double IPAs & Single IPAs.

List of Double IPAs, in prefered order: The Crusher, Heady Topper, Pliny The Elder, Deviant Dale’s

List of Single IPAs, in prefered order: Focal Banger, Grapefruit Sculpin, Moralité/Blind Pig

A – Hazy yellow with thick head, head lasted longer than other IPAs.

S – Super dank and loaded with tropical fruits, smells more than Heady Topper.

T – Loaded with hops, hops and hops. Simcoe like and very very tropical fruity.

M – A bit more full than other IPAs, almost like it’s oats in it.

O – Best IPA I’ve had, aroma out of the can is stronger than most double IPAs even.

Sample at first sunday. Hot damn I love Alchemist IPAs. More subtle than heady but I think I prefer the subtley these days. Lemon and tangerine tropical fruit aromas and flavors. Later in the palate is a little more grassy and herbal again, slight citrus bitterness. Delicious.
