kick ass, perhaps the east coast answer to pliny the elder. Itís super hoppy, yet balanced and not overly strong. 8% is plenty, we donít need 12% with our hops! Lots of citrus, pine, resin all over, and comes in a big can. whatís not to love?

Caramel, floral, spruce, herbs, and enough resin that if I closed my eyes, I could confuse it for the hopís mostly illegal cousin. The nose on this is otherworldly, I think I sprained my olfactory glands. It poured a murky golden tan, and the taste fit the aroma but was more subdued and bitter. A fine DIPA that is a must try for the aroma if you ever have an opportunity.

Aroma was a citrus grapefruit. Appearance was a little hazy. This beer had a lot of hop. This beer was in your face and delivered exactly what you expect out of this excellent beer.

Smells of grapefruit and pine. Very aromatic. Drank most from can as per directions, but a 5 oz pour into a snifter revealed a hazy beer without much in the looks department. I was, at first, convinced the drink from can direction was a ploy to keep people from looking at the beer, but further taste comparison made me feel like the can was really quite superior. Taste-wise, the beer was a bit unbalanced in the direction of bitterness over maltiness, but a complete lack of lingering bitterness on the palate made me appreciate the overly hoppy character, and this is the only beer Iíve yet to see do that right. Full marks, except for appearance, which was abysmal.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 16oz can thanks to toastedpuppy. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Pineapple pine aroma. Grapefruit and big orange and citrus hop taste. Very enjoyable.

Bonused by nate321 in a recent trade (read: received it today), thanks a lot man!! This isnít my first time with Heady but it is my first time rating it, letís dissect this. Pours clear golden with only the slightest haze and almost no head. Smell is heavenly, pine and grapefuits loaded. It does smell even more of pine when sniffing from the can, marvelous! Taste is medium bitter with a medium sweetness coming from the supportive malt backbone. Flavors remind again of pine mostly, covering a grapefruity canva. Overall a marvelous double IPA, one that I should someday go drink straight from the source!

Iíd walk across the blazing Sahara desert for a good IPA. This IPA strikes a wonderful balance...not too sweet, not too dry, well carbonated. The one aspect of balance that stands out is the balance between nose and palate. This beer is magnificently hopped with a perfect balance between wet and dry, with aromatic hints of pine and grapefruit. As much as I used to taunt my wine loving friends (catcalls of "Tannic, but fruity, with essence of oak" were my typical sophomoric jeer...), I grudgingly admire their descriptive nomenclature. Now, I simply have to convert them to beer.

From the brewery. Pours a bright effervescent gold with lots of white head. Perfect spruce hop sting that is short and sweet and piney and everything that is good in an iipa. Wonderful grapefruit in the aroma just adds to the enjoyment. This is fantastic.

Iím ready for a Heady! Fresh can. In the can, smell is big pine. Poured into a small taster also getting some fruity smell. Pours murky light tangerine with no head or lacing. Aromas are pine, some light peach or apricot, maybe some biscuit. Tastes are light sweet and heavy bitter. Body is medium, bitterness almost makes it feel sticky. Bitterness and flavours last a long time. This is crazy drinkable.
