This beer made me like IPA's. I always heard that it was an acquired taste, well, Heady Topper, thanks for helping me acquire it. Now I like a whole slew of IPAs but my memory of this one was that it was perfect.

Hazy orange/amber colored pour. Small, somewhat soapy looking head. With big soda-type bubbles. Little bit of splotchy lacing left behind. A lemony aroma of hops, some dankness and pine mixed in. Taste is citrusy, leaning more towards orange with some lemon mixed into it. A slight bit of sweetness. Finishes sweeter than I though it would. A slight bit of alcohol warmth. Not much bitterness. Much more sweetness than bitter. Decent. Not sure how you could get any of this without pouring it OUT of the can. You wouldn’t. It would just be for getting drunk at that point. This is a decent Americanized version of an English IPA though. If they made DIPAs over there.

Can at home. Superb aroma of fresh pine and musty, dried flowers. Super smooth palate, full of bright fruity flavors. Bitter, fruity finish.

So the hyped Heady found its way to Denmark. Does it live up to the hype? I would say YES! Enoyed half of this straight from the can and poured the rest into my IPA glass. Liquid is clear golden with a nice dense head. The nose is as nice as it gets, loaded with passionfruit, peaches, grapefruit and elderflower. Taste is really balance between the sweetness of the malt and the fruity hops. Lots of exotic fruits as in the nose. Doesn’t get overly bitter like other IIPA’s. Really nice!

Got a few cans in a trade. Was supposed to be ~4 weeks old. Drank out of the can every time, as per instructions on the can. Was a sweet, hop forward ale. Great, resinous hoppy mouth-feel. Extremely consistent hop profile and drink-ability. Not too heavy on the stomach, which was nice also! Great IIPA!

Lucky enough to have tried this canned wonder. Love the citrus notes and pine flavor. Best beer I've ever had.

There is nothing like fresh Heady. Amazing aroma that hits you right in the face. It’s not over the top with bitterness like a lot of double IPAs. Overall, it is a perfect balance.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Pours hazy light orange. Big pine, peach mango pineapple notes on the nose. Thick, sticky dank hops. Medium full on the palate, piney bitter hops up front, leading to a bitter hoppy fruity finish. Excellent

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.
