Une apparence assez ingrate (son seul défaut!):orange terne et particule en suspension. Mousse qui colle bien au verre. Pour les aromes, c’est le plaisir total: houblon résineux en profusion, de l’agrume, un peu d’épinette, mangue, peche, etc. on se sent sous les tropiques. En bouche, c’est rond, moelleux et une amertume tout en équilibre pour l’ibu; longue finale d’agrume non agressante. Très buvable

As others have mentioned as soon as you open the can a smell of peaches, citrus fruits and bitter hops just resonates. The taste is phenomenal, it’s almost as if your chewing on a hop. The taste is amazing citrus juicy juicy citrus. This is my top IIpa!

As you open the can, the aroma is superb; citrusy, aromatic and hoppy bitterness all evident. The only knock on this is for the appearance as I enjoyed this treat from the can as the instructions suggest. Oily on the tongue; taste and residue linger for the perfect amount of time. Alcohol is virtually non-existant. Perfectly balanced and smooth. Hands down the best IIPA I’ve ever had. Ever. Wish it was easier to get my hands on aside from rare road trips north. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can(big thanks to ThirstyBird!): Deep golden sith an orangey sheen, hazy, some floaties visible, mid-sized persistent off-white head, pineapples and grapefruits in the solid herbal-hoppy nose, some tropic sweet fruits underneath; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied and pretty soft; lingering - hops still sticking to the palate - grapefruity-tart finish, some malt as a counterpart still present. A nice pleasure…

wheresyourball (529) - El Cajon, California, USA - APR 15, 2013
Can shared by Austin - thanks. Pours a bright gold with white head. Nose is sharp hops, pine; flavor follows with grapefruit and malt. One of the best IPAs I’ve tried.

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 14, 2013
Heady pours a unfiltered, cloudy gold appearance. Yes, I poured it out of the can into a glass. Warms to a fruity jolly rancher aroma, piney undertones with citrus bergamot adding complexity. Cream soda like, big juice body, nice bitter mid section finishing dry. Freaking delicious.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2013 Bitterness, malt, tropical sweetness and floral notes come together at the perfectly harmonized levels at the right time, gentle bourbon, little weed taste. No taste sticks out like a sore thumb. Absurdly drinkable for a substantive beer. At $12/can it’s pricey but extremely enjoyable. That’s my biggest complaint..and it is a big one. Hard to get and expensive, but that’s Alchemist’s right to limit their distribution but I don’t have to like it. This is a must try for any aficionado and aspiring brewer. This is an example of perfect brewing execution.

Far out - this is the Robocop of beers. Clean cut, honest, but ruthlessly efficient. Huge citrus, tropical fruit nose. Super clean body, lots of big hops, well balanced, though this is an unabashed hop monster. A tad sticky. Dry finish. World class. Big thanks to Beerkat for letting me try this.

Excellent character, individuality, amazing balance and drinkability for all of those hops. A good Ale makes it’s own friends and The Alchemist doesn’t need to spend much on marketing. I notice the picture on this site shows the Heady Topper label on a bottle. I was not aware that they offered this in bottles as the brewer is insistent that in order to enjoy the full bloom of the hop aromatics this ale should be drank right out of the can.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2013 A friend brought me a can back from a VT. trip. Best beer I ever had, OMG, just really good, strong hop but not overpowering. Only gave it a 3 on apperance due to average coloring and sediment floating around, don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change a thing
