A very complex and bitter brew. Lots of pine and citrus. An amazing IPA that is worth the effort to obtain

500 mL can. (From Rob T via Dave T - thanks guys!) I poured it into a glass so I could see it. Sorry Heady purists. It’s pale and really hazy with a small white head. Now you know. The huge hoppiness hits your nose as soon as the pour begins. This is hop juice, plain and simple There is no attempt at balance here, other than the balance of pine and citrus. Bitterness is perfect. Incredibly drinkable for such a hoppy beer.

Pours a cloudy golden with white head and big lacing. Aroma is piney, magos, pineapple. Taste is full of mangos. grapefruits, piney, grassy, good malt backbone without being too sweet. Medium to full body and medium carbonation. Fantastic

Pungent hops, onions, color of dark pineapple juice. Opaque, hazy, tons of yeast sediment. Tastes bitter: grapefruit, heavy pine oil. Juicy feel. This is pretty outstanding. If I didn’t have sky high expectations I might even rate it higher.

"Drink from the can!" The Alchemist Heady Topper is amazing. I did just as it said on the can and drank it direct. With that said... I didn't see the pour. It doesn't matter. This beer is amazing. Smells citrusy and piney. Flavor is bold. Hops, pine, lots of citrus. Simply amazing and definitely worth the hype. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can, fresh. The pour is a light hazy yellow. The aroma is big time hops, pine. The taste is bitter big upfront and continues. Seems like a hop heads dream come true.

Floral nose. Great head and color. Fruitier and cloudier than I expected. Very good, but not great.
