UPDATED: AUG 18, 2016 Beaucoup plus "herbeux" que la Heady Topper. Offre tout de même une signature houblonnée qui s’inscrit définitivement dans la même famille que cette dernière. Une bonne IPA pour les amateurs de ce genre de houblons au goût plus vert/herbeux!

MAJ : Une autre cannette : il y a définitivement aussi un goût d’oigons. Je ne trippe pas tant que ça sur le choix des houblons.

24 oct 2016, bottle. Pale yellow with some sediment. Nose is slightly sweet, faintly tart, slightly earthy. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Some bitter lemon rind, faintly sweet. Decent.

Can from PhillyCraft. Thanks again Vin! It pours a surprisingly not so hazy golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma has citrus and pom fruit, a little grass and stinky dank. The flavor is full with intensely spicy dank hops. Pineapple and peach in the background with strong citrus bitterness. Nice and snappy on the palate with intense dank, pine and citrus flavor and bitterness. Mostly citrus peel though. Pretty complex hop profile in a drinkable package. A little different than I expected, but still a top notch IPA.

dresden (1479) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - OCT 24, 2016
Half from can, half in glass. Cloudy but not super hazy golden. Aroma is pungent - juicy citrus. Sweet with light bitterness, very dangerously drinkable - pineapple, orange, deliciousness.

The ’little’ brother of the famed Heady Topper, big cheers to Ster for offering me the can. Thick, densely moussy, frothy, stable, egg-white head over an initially warm ’old’ golden blonde beer with fierce sparkling and some yeast bits here and there, hugely increasing in numbers at the end, eventually lending the beer a muddy, ochre-hued, milky appearance. Lively and fragrant bouquet of lime juice, sugared lemon, ripe mango, sweet onions, mandarin peel, freshly cut green bell peppers, crackers, tonic water, minerals, bitter honey, unripe pineapple and a light hint of spruce. Vividly fruity flavor, very crisp, with sourish redcurrant and green plum-like impressions mingled with sweeter mango, starfruit and light banana, fizzy carbo, smooth oily mouthfeel. Lightly biscuity malt sweet middle with a sharper grainy edge to it, perfectly supporting the star of the show, making its entrance at an early stage: a wealth of aromatic hoppiness, with a ton of retronasal citrus, mango and green banana as well as a piney accent; in the mouth, a deeply grapefruity, strong, resinous bitterness is established, drying the back of the mouth to a large extent but letting just a trace of sweet maltiness pass through in the end, keeping the finish juicy. As with Heady Topper, the brewer recommends "drink from the can", but obviously that would not serve this beer right: this is a modern IPA of utmost balance, elegance and finesse, in which all the components are perfectly dosed, much like in its big brother. Glad I finally tasted this, a beautiful example of this brewery’s quality standard.

Can. Light hazy light golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, mango, weed, lychee and light grain. So dank. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of tangerine, lychee, mango, fresh hops and weed. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Awesome. Drinkable. Juicy. Dank.

Can. Pours golden hazy with offwhite head (I broke the rules and poured in a glass). Aroma is Dank and Fruity. Taste is sweet fruity (Lemon and Grapefruit) with a piney lemon grapefruit zest finish. Very bitter zest finish of which i like. Glad i finally got to try it.

rodenbach99 (4258) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2016
Style et résumé: IPA avec un gros «hype».
Comment: Canette achetée au Vermont, merci Vincent.
Description: Une bière dorée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez d’agrumes intenses et de houblon. Une bouche piquante, mordante avec beaucoup de houblons aromatiques et une touche de savon. Un peu déçu avec tous ses commentaires dithyrambiques.
Note: 7+/10

Can sample at Warszawski festiwal piwa, thanks to Grzegorz Korcz. Lots of hoppy fruits in aroma, mostly tropical ones. Taste is light bitter, flavor of mango, pineapple, pomelo. Wow.
