Perfection! This is a hop heads dream. If you’re an IPA lover this is a must try beer, if you can get your hands on it off course.

Thanks Dave. Hazy gold. Nose is light and floral. Taste is exquisite. A little sweet and slight piney. So good.

Thank you Seth! Holy crap, a beer that lives up to the hype. Somehow they crafted a beer for hop heads that’s also incredibly balanced with a creamy mouthfeel. An excellent beer.

As close to perfect as a Double IPA can get. Hugely complex aroma and flavor suggest citrus of all sorts, pine, mango, peach, lychee, and grass. However, the flavor is well-balanced and complemented by a delicately soft yet full mouthfeel and malt profile. The hop character isn’t overwhelmed with the bitterness that can characterize some IPAs, allowing the subtleties to be fully appreciated. (By the way, this is the primary reason why Heady Topper is superior than Pliny the Elder even though both are exquisite.) My only critiques are that it needs to be really fresh to be fully appreciated and that it looks a little chunky (due totally to the massive quantities of hops and the nature of the style, not any technical flaw).

Huge thanks to drowland for grabbing some cans for me and my wife. We’ve been wanting to try this one for awhile. Worth the wait. Cloudy orange-ish pour...just small amount so we could drink in can. Aroma is a wallop of citrus hop, juicy hops, lemon, and dank earthiness. The taste is super balanced with carbonation and playful, changing hop profiles. Nice sweet maltiness as well. The bitterness and citrus lingers. Superb.

Incredible IPA, balanced journey through several distinct hop varieties returning to a slightly hop forward finish that refreshes without staying overly bitter. A great find, an experience worth having. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrisoni (16051) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2013
Fresh can from the wonderful Leighton. Hazy amber with lasting white head. Big fresh grapefruit hop aroma. Soft carbonation. Yes there is some alcohol presence. Flavour is pretty damn good. Amazingly drinkable. Alcohol is a little too present for me. Good bitterness on the finish. Grapefruit and some satsuma flavour. It’s good. Not the mind blowing beer that the other ratings suggest. Good though.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 Bottles cheers to Ryan you fucking legend. Wow, what a beer. All my notes say is ’holy fuck’ three times over. That says it all. Unbelievably drinkable stuff. The hype is real

Can. Pours a hazy golden orange/yellow with an off-white head (two figures). Aroma is hops, hops hops, citrus, pine and earthy sweet undertones. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, bitter hops, faint sweet caramel, malt. Very balanced, good carbonation, medium body. Excellent beer - start to finish.

Had this on tap and from cans while on trip to Vermont this summer. Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Nose is of pine and citrus. Taste is of grapefruit and lemon with some caramel malt. Mouthfeel is bitter but not overly so and resinous. This is very smooth for a DIPA. Well balanced. Goes down easily. I could definitely make this my go-to brew if I had it available locally. Fantastic brew! Great drinking experience.
