Cloudy orange with a foamy white head. Big piny hop scent. Bitter bite thats wrapped in a creamy foam. Creamy bitter aftertaste. Amazing.

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

Holy moly this is a smooth ipa. Just delicious hoppy smoothness that goes down so smooth.

There is a lot of hype on this beer and it is very hard to get. I was lucky enough to score a four pack with a trade. It was a solid beer overall but there was something I didnít like about the aftertaste after each sip. It would dissipate quickly, however I still didnít like that short aftertaste I got. Otherwise, it lives up to itís reputation.

Pours hazy golden color. Aroma is huge on hops. Taste is strong in hops with a fantastic malt base. Great balance between the strong hop flavor and strong malt. Fantastic.

Poured from a can. Hazy gold with a huge white head. Citrus aroma. Citrus taste with a little sweetness. Leaves a funny bitterness. Good, but not as good as Pliny. Best east coast beer I've had, but that's not saying much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is hazy orange with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is of orange peel, citrus juice, caramel, and grapefruit. Flavor is bitter at first but has a sweet body and finish - pears, grapefruit, mango, orange peel, toasted dough, caramel. Alcohol is well hidden.

Can from Jay. Pours a hazy orange/gold/yellow with nice off white foam. Smells earthy and yeasty, a little tropical with a hint of lemon and carbon dioxide. Tastes a little nutty and fairly malty, has a pretty diverse hop start, but it fades to just plain bitter with a touch of alcohol at the end. Really didnít live up to the hype, though it is a solid IPA.
