BGM2 Wrocław Piwo jasne, mętne, piana średniej wielkości o dużej fakturze, szybko opada ale zostawia ślad na kuflu Wyrazisty zapach cytrusowy, grejfrutowy, później bardziej łagodny zapach pomarańczy. Średnie nasycenie, dosyś duże ciało, gorzkie, przypomina niedojżałe pomelo. finisz długi, gorzki. Bardzo porządne piwo, aczkolwiek zbyt drogie moim zdaniem.

KoNrRiI (683) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 13, 2015
0.473 can. Hazy, gold color and a medium, white head of poor retention leaving a delicate lacing. Very hoppy aroma of citruses, resin, coniferous trees, mango, peaches, and grapefruits. Taste is bitter but balanced; again resin, pine trees, bitter grapefruits, and fruity sweetness. Medium body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is quite sweet, very nicely composed, follows the taste but pine trees dominate this time. Overall a marvelous beer, I’m glad I had the chance to taste it.

Well. Awesome aroma of fresh citrus and tropical fruit, some resin in the background and... the lack of malts (slight touch of caramel is not enough in imperial IPA). But still - Heady Topper is surprisingly refreshing and easily-drinking beer. One of the best imperial IPA I’ve drunk so far. For real.

Can at Beer Geek madness 2. Hazy golden color with medium white head. Nice clean aroma of citrus hops, resin, biscuity malt. Strong citrus hoppy, resiny taste wit notes of caramel. Long hoppy bitter finish. Very tasty balanced beer.

Drank it from the can. Aroma of pine, citrus. Big hop flavor, not too bitter, very well balanced and refreshing. One of the top IPAs, definitely.

peponi (633) - Krakow, POLAND - APR 10, 2015
Aroma: hops bomb (citrus, pine, resin, white grapes), passion fruit. Appearance: hazy golden color, nice white head. Taste: high bitterness (red grapefruit, mango, pine), really refreshing citrus taste, nice malty backbone, really balanced, alcohol is perfectly covered, semi-dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Perfect DIPA, speechless.

mpersinger (360) - , California, USA - APR 8, 2015
Intriguing aroma of young cut grass and homegrown herb. Sample poured cloudy, brassy with white halo. Medium mouthfeel, cut grass and intense homegrown flavors, with herbaceous mint and spruce notes on biscuit malt backbone. Finishes with subtle bitterness. (Quite intrigued by the sample. I hear there’s variance in product that might be chalked up to age, travel or brewing variance. Probably should come back to this one.) Thanks Nate.

Everything that an ipa should be, it seamlessly integrates a lot of floral, tropical fruits, pine and citrus together. Definitely lives up to the hype
