Pungent hops, onions, color of dark pineapple juice. Opaque, hazy, tons of yeast sediment. Tastes bitter: grapefruit, heavy pine oil. Juicy feel. This is pretty outstanding. If I didn’t have sky high expectations I might even rate it higher.

"Drink from the can!" The Alchemist Heady Topper is amazing. I did just as it said on the can and drank it direct. With that said... I didn't see the pour. It doesn't matter. This beer is amazing. Smells citrusy and piney. Flavor is bold. Hops, pine, lots of citrus. Simply amazing and definitely worth the hype. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can, fresh. The pour is a light hazy yellow. The aroma is big time hops, pine. The taste is bitter big upfront and continues. Seems like a hop heads dream come true.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 50cl can, American brew, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex bitter brew, fruity/bitter and slightly floral/woody, very balanced, cloudy, good head, very good brew!, yet expensive! "I couldn’t resist rating this (I normally never rate cans); this is indeed an awesome IPA!"

Floral nose. Great head and color. Fruitier and cloudier than I expected. Very good, but not great.

Friend shared pint can, poured to stemware with a yeasty cloudiness and orangy hue, a decent layer of cream colored head foam, and wavy lacing. The nose was intensely resiny & grapefruity, with some pleasant, backup tropical notes. Very malty, with a nice creaminess to the mouthfeel. Medium+ bodied, hop bitterness was strong, very lingering, but drinkably under control, with the flavor also presenting some dusty earthiness, a touch of soapiness, and obvious but subdued alcohol. Impressive DIPA!

jbruner (2502) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Can in trade with phatdog1! Pours a hazy golden orange with dissipating creamy off-white head that webs nicely. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is a slightly bitter menagerie of tropical fruits and citrus with a nice caramel malt back end. Nothing over the top, a nice balance. Great IPA.

Can. Deep golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is peaches, malt, hop, pine, grapefruit. Flavour is peaches, malt, hop, alcohol, pine, grapefruit. Full body. Nice beer.
