58 year old physician with all kinds of discretionary income found myself standing in line, in the rain, in 35 degree weather, waiting for a Heady delivery in Barre, Vt. Asking myself: "My God, has my life really come to this?" Scored a case, not embarrassed by my actions. The aroma blew me away. Flowers and lemons. Does not drink like 8%, which is dangerous. Got down to one of my last cans and committed heresy by pouring it into a snifter. What a beautiful yellow almost fluorescent color! Beyoncé in a can.

I really didn’t think there was any way it could live up to the hype. It did.

Rated from a 4 pack that my co-worker brought back from Vermont. Tried in both the can as suggested and poured into a glass. Not much of a difference in flavor/aroma but the carbonation was obviously a bit higher in the can. I must say I enjoyed this beer out of the glass a bit more. Pours a hazy golden with a thick white head. Aroma is of medium strength in the hop vibrancy department, citrusy/grapefruity. Flavor has strong grapefruit /citrus up front then a twinge of orange. Simple pale malt bill to let the hop character to shine. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Drinks VERY easily for an 8% abv beer. The bitterness level, while totally appropriate for an IPA, is VERY smooth. While it doesn’t taste like Bells Two Hearted, it has a similar drinking experience for me. Overall, didn’t quite knock my socks off but a really good beer that I would like to have again.

A week old can, pours hazy light gold, creamy white head doesn’t stick around. Aroma of grapefruit juice almost grapefruit pith, some tangerine and light honey like malt. Flavor lots more grapefruit, smooth honey like malt flavor, firm bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel almost slick, bitterness doesn’t linger. Super smooth no alcohol warming, sneaky 8.0%

Gift can that is product of a Smokey and the Banditesque beer run. Pale hazy yellow, no lasting head, little lace. Hops on nose. Sip is good, more hops than malt with plenty of each. Hops turn bitter fast. I get it, but this is more a case of demand or exclusivity prompting a higher rating.

Hazy yellow orange pour with a white head. Aroma is citrus, peach, pine, and toffee. Taste is peach and citrus with a bit of pine. Easy bitterness. Soft palate. Great beer.

McNeillR (2168) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2016
Very hazy light golden and a soft white ringed head. Nose is grassy spearmint, husky malt and more honied citrus. Initial taste is an excellent strip of bitterness, fairly grainy and faintly grapefruit. Fades into a decent nosh of spicy honey booziness. Carbonation is middling and mouthfeel is fairly sticky, touch of booziness. Finishes clean enough, more minty citrus and creamy key lime and lingers out steely and vibrant and not at all like a fresh sipping DIPA. Still tremendous and glad to have it within a month to disprove the notion three month old plus cans weren’t as smashing as it would be semifresh.

Can, Brockware IPA Face/Off Beta Edition

Goryczka zdrowa i mocna. Barwa bursztynowa nieco zmętniona. Aromat to już grejpfrut i cytrusy. Piwo jest ok ale chyba hype trochę za duży. Sculpin z Ballast Point bardziej powalił

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2016 Un corp onctueux qui dévoile des saveurs douces de melon miel, mandarine et légèrement florale. L’amertume se mélange merveilleusement bien avec les saveurs. Un chef d’oeuvre tout simplement.
