Drank from the can as the can demanded this of me. This can does not lie as this all types of hoppy goodness. Aroma is of strong citrus and the taste is creamy with a nicedsense aftertaste. I see why it gets all the hype.

Shared can by the great folks at Lazy Dog. Poured a hazy gold with a nice layer of cream colored head. Perfect aroma of floral hops. Taste of citrus and hops. Amazing beer.

From can. Aroma is a large, wet, hoppy perfume. A good helping of grapefruit. Intense. Taste does not disappoint. Bitter upfront, but girded with nice, subtle sweetness, and underlying notes of meaty grapefruit and pine resin. Very well done. Nicely balanced. The less malts, more hops flavor gamble really pays off here. Dry, yet smooth, mouthfeel. Poured the end of the can into tasting glass. Color is a hazy, pilsner yellow. A DIPA that drinks like a session beer.

Aroma is pure hops. Appearance is a hazy orange- what you would picture an IPA to be. Taste is an awesome presentation of citrus hops. I love the carbonation in this beer - it is very lively. All in all - it is the best beer I have ever had.

Poured from a can at home. Copper orange in color with a white head. Smell is of citrus, grapefruit, and hops. The flavor is equal to the smell. Citrus, grapefruit flavor with a malty taste. Overall crisp beer with hops at the end of it. Iím not a huge hop head, but this beer lived up to the hype. Extremely enjoyable beer.

Paincane (86) - Georgia, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Copper orange colored pour into pint glass producing an off-white head leaving a moderate amount of lacing. Citrusy, and hoppy floral aromas. Grapefruit flavor with malt backbone and crisp clean dry hop bitter finish. Medium bodied, chunky with hop resins and active carbonation. Extremely enjoyable and flavorful beer.

Jimsal27 (164) - New York, USA - MAR 25, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Great hoppy, piney aroma. Creamy citrus taste. Lots of hop presence. Really good. Definitely one of the better dipas Iíve had. The only thing keepin the score down is that I donít love ipas

Iíve had Pliny the Elder and this is much better. The guy who said otherwise (ahem, Rick) must be smoking crack or is just blinded by west coast pride or some other bullshite. Pliny was actually a huge disappointment and quite boring. Trust me. The beauty of Heady T is that it doesnít have that cloying syrupy mouthfeel and sweetness that every Imperial IPA seems to have. Perfect Beer
