Keogh (127) - Świebodzice, POLAND - APR 22, 2015
Barwa ciemno złota. Piana obfita, drobno-pęcherzykowa, trwała, ładny lancing do tego. Aromat bardzo intensywny, czysty, świeży, ogrom owoców tropikalnych i żywicy. W smaku równie przyjemnie, owocowa słodycz, do tego dobra podbudowa słodowa, gładkość i na koniec spora grejpfrutowa goryczka która szybko znika i aż prosi się o powtórzenie w następnym łyku. Wysycenie niskie do średniego, gładkie, bardzo pijalne - zdradziecko, nie czuć alkoholu. W porównaniu do Focala, bardziej treściwe, w aromacie więcej owoców tropikalnych, gdzie w Focalu bardziej leśnie/żywicznie, no i w Focalu jest ta słodycz przyjemna na języku po goryczce czego brak w Heady - no cóż, nie można mieć wszystkiego. Oba piwa zasługują na topowe miejsca w rankingach i bardzo się ciesze że miałem możliwość spróbowania (BGM2 - dziękuję!)

Barwa ciemnozlota, piana obfita drobnopecherzykowa, trwala. Aromat bardzo intensywny, oczywiscie chmielowy, troche slodki, owocowy w strone owoców tropikalnych. W smaku dokladnie to co zapowiada aromat, goryczka dociera dosc szybko, jest bardzo przyjemna i krótka. Piwo jest wyjatkowo pijalne, alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty, z kazdym lykiem chce sie wiecej.

Cavie (4000) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2015
Can. Pours a murky yellow color with a white foamy head. Aroma is spicy hops, floral, pine, citrus and crazy intense hops. Flavor is spicy hops, citrus, pine, and fresh grass. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scirtes (100) - POLAND - APR 19, 2015
Can. Amber, cloudy beer with white head, which disappears quite quickly. Aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, resin. Taste is somewhat sweet, malty at first, but soon high bitterness is dominating. Bitterness is surprisingly complex, grapefruit-like, with distinct resinous character. Long, bitter, very pleasant finish. Great beer. Very drinkable.

Surprisingly clear, pale beer with a nice white head. I was expecting a cloudy fluid with some yeast floating around since i opened a can straight from a journey and it didnt have much time to cool in the fridge. Aroma typical for the style, american hops give some citrus and forest smell and malt adds some sweet note. Although the IBU is really high (120?!) the bitterness doesn’t feel overwhelming, it is on point, doesn’t disrupt the falvour with is pretty sweet thanks to malts. The palate feels good, carbonation is maybe a little to high, but on the other hand it makes the beer feel fresh. Overall the beer feels great, one of the best or even the best dipa in the world. If you have a chance to get this beer, do it - you won’t regret.

MacBoost helped me land this somewhat "hard to get get" beer. From the can. Looked for dating, none available. Pours a hazy orangish glow, with a fluffy white head. Was expecting a bunch of floaties, but did not really see any. Good looking beer. Aroma is of hop citrus, light malts, biscuits, and some grass. Taste is big on the light citrus front, grapefruits, oranges, mango...with some cracker yeast flavor coming in. For 120 IBU’s the bitterness was not overwhelming, somewhat dry finish. Great beer, would definitely drink again, if offered.

Backlog. Can share at Dominion Wine and Beer in Falls Church. Poured into a taster. Hazy dark gold with small white head. Tons of citrus hops, bittersweet, but not overdone and lacking the Fruity Pebbles notes of some other big citrus hop bombs. Very smooth and tasty.

Simply put, there is very little bad you can say about this outstanding IPA. Hazy golden hue. Smith malt start, big hop flavor in the middle, and nice long finish. Believe the hype.

Appearance - poured from can (I know it says not too! I can't help it!) a cloudy pale golden. Thick white head Aroma - big citrus, melon, and earthy aroma. Great grapefruit and earthy aromas during the experience. Taste - sweet and initially bitter, with a very smooth bitter finish. One of the more balanced ipa's I've had Mouthfeel - surprisingly more medium-heavy bodied than I expected. Very sticky. Overall - lives up the hype. A perfectly balanced beer

Pelzky (91) - Szczecin, POLAND - APR 16, 2015
Amber, hazy color with white, talk but short-lasting head. Very complex aroma of hops with lichi upfront. Also some caramel/biscuit notes after warming. Body could be little more liqueur. Low to medium carbonation. Great stuff.
