Heady Topper lived up to the hype. Fantastic IIPA. What can be said about it that hasn’t already been said? It’s the perfect beer. Even the can is a work of art. Insane peach/orange color, ridiculously dank aroma, and an orgasmic blend of hops. Perfect amount of bitterness, finishes clean with a pleasant floral aftertaste. Considered moving to Vermont after the last sip. Cheers.

I've had Pliny and now I've had Heady! I'm gonna have to say... Damn they're both good! This one has HUGE hop aroma but such a sweet flavor. Super duper smooth on the palate. This just sneaks past Pliny as the #1 IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy light amber orange color with a frothy off-white to light tan head. Beautiful aroma with tons of citrusy and tropical fruit hop character. Flavor is a bit more subdued with the sweetness, but with a sharp bitter kick. Oily on the palate with bitterness lasting long into the finish. Great IPA, but not quite spectacular for me.

Hard to take your nose away from the unreal citrus hop explosion that permeates through to the last drop. Fantastic hoppy smoothness on the tongue that really does make you want to crawl into the can

This is a great double IPA plain and simple. To me not the best beer on earth but a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amazing brew, the smoothest, most drinkable dipa I’ve ever tried. It’s hoppy, but not over the top, no dry bitter tongue after taste. The most impressive part is the ease that this can be consumed. Smooth smooth smooth.

Hazy straw yellow in color... Aroma is earthy, pine hops, light champagne nose.... Flavor is initially sweet, citrus, gives way to dry earthy, piney bitterness on palate.... Not overwhelmingly bitter, but definitely has a kick... Really complex and well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I’ve had some really good DIPAs and this really doesn’t approach that level. My friend who brought the can from Vermont, and who has had this beer many times before, said that it didn’t strike her as much as previous cans had. The hazy yellow color is nice, and the aroma is fine (standard citrus, etc.) but there’s a superficial bitterness that isn’t as well compensated by the sweetness and malt backbone as I’ve found in other DIPAs. This is fine, to be sure, very respectable, but I’m surprised it has garnered this high a rating/ranking. Can.

Une des meilleures Double IPA, que j’ai jamais but. Grande arôme trés floral, une touche de malt et de houblon bien équilibré. Teneur en alcool parfait. Son seul défaut, dure a trouver !!
