From a can pours out a golden topped with a nice head. Have had this a few times and is always good. Nose is pine citrus hops a nice caramel sweetness. Taste is more of the nice hop kick well balanced malt bill. Not to sweet and just the right amount of bitterness.

Pours gold with a nice white head. Big citrus hops on the nose with a punch in the face flavor. Really well balanced. What else can be said. Awesome!

Pours a hazy gold. Aroma of citrus and grass. Taste is of citrus fruits and subtle tropical flavors. All in all one of the best DIPAs I’ve ever had.

BeergeekKorea (78) - SOUTH KOREA - SEP 8, 2015
Aroma: Rich cool mandarin, some piney citrus Appearance: Pale yellow colour and thin cloudy head Taste: Light sweet, heavy bitter but not aggressive - subtle Palate: Medium body, slick oily texture, fizzy carbonation, and complex hop-flavour finishes Overall: Full-flavoured and never boring, nearly perfect balance

Thanks to an amazing co-worker, I am the proud owner of a 4-pk of the highly sought Heady Topper! And, that’s about where it ends. Tried the first one in the can and the second in a pint glass. Definitely better in the can, as recommended. Aroma is all the pleasantries you’d expect from a fine IPA. Nowhere near enough malt presence for me. Balance? None. Contrary to what it says on the can, it’s bitter. If you pour it out, it is a cloudy pale yellow color that looks like skunked Budweiser. A palate wrecker. I could name at least 20 DIPA’s I’d take over this. Good, but very overrated (as I unfortunately expected). Meh.

Can: Poured a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is strong hops galore. Taste is super citrus hops and lingers all the way through.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2015 Drunk from a bar in Vermont, weekly drop. Sure it’s fresh and dank but I find it a bit too dry and it was murky as hell when I put a small sample into a glass. The taste is there but it’s just too damn dry. The tropical fruits are excellent but I find this overrated compared to other IPA style kings. - Whops, realised I didn’t mark up my overall accordingly to my taste scores.

fraternie (947) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2015
A big, aggressive, malty IPA, with tons of roasted caramel above its floral citrus and strong hop undertones. Balanced and lingers long, a monster for the style.

En canette. Robe orangée trouble, col de mousse dense et moelleux. Arômes de punch aux fruits tropicaux. Orange, mangue, pêche, pamplemousse rose sucré, tangerine. Le tout sur un fond de résine de pin et de sucre doux. En bouche, trop de choses en même temps. Du jus tropical, un malt caramélisé juste à point et amertume résineuse superbe. Le tout dans un équilibre presque parfait. Mes papilles sont servies. Une finale fruitée de tangerine, pêche et pamplemousse et juste assez amère. Une texture peut-être un peu trop épaisse mais un corps bien rond. Haut taux d’alcool imperceptible, enseveli sous cette montage de saveurs. J’avais essayé le produit en fût mais je doit admettre que cette bière en canette est superbe.
