UPDATED: AUG 7, 2012 Notes from 10/19/11. Thanks to Jnorton00 for this brew. Itís better than Pliny (the Elder). The quintessential camping beer (and yes, the can contributes to this moniker). Everything you want and nothing you donít. Better price point than Dreadnaught; just canít decide if itís better. I guess itíll take another night of "research" to come to a conclusion :) Update: After a head to head comparison the next day, this beer edges Dreadnaught. And for the value, it blows it out of the water.

I had this on tap at The Alchemist last summer.The color is a hazy honey with a thick off white head. The aroma is an overpowering of hops and more hops what a pleasure with citrus fruits mostly grapefruit. The taste all of the above plus that great bitterness.The aftertaste is long lasting wich is again great. This was just so wonderfull.

Seriously citrusy on the nose. Even though Alchemist recommends drinking this from the can I had to see the first one Iíve had the chance to try, sue me thereís 23 more in the case to drink "properly"... Anyway, it pours a hazy straw with an off white head. Tastes as delicious as it looks. Big bad hops that donít over power the taste buds. This one has some serious drinkability. Finishes dry and clean and leaves you reaching for another.

Really hoppy, bitter, malty filling. Pale, sweet, like a light American barley wine, the malt backbone really stands out.

Tall can shared by HH brother Sajaad. Golden pour with thin head. Aroma was full of sweet tropical hops. Very nice hop profile with a touch of sweetness and just the right amount of bitterness if you will. Reminded me of Hill Farmstead but a bit less bitter. Great stuff. Thanks man.

Iíve had this quite a few times now (on tap, bottle, and can). Finally getting around to reviewing it. Currently drinking it from the can. Waves of earthy, grapefruit-laced, hops on the nose. Flavor is chewy grapefruit hops with a nice resiny body. Ideal level of bitterness throughout. Goes down so easy. This beer definitely deserves the hype. Not the best DIPA Iíve ever had, but still excellent. So glad they started canning this year round.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2012 "Stopped by the Alchemist cannery the other day on a recent trip to VT and sampled some freshly brewed Heady Topper. All I can say is, WOW! By far, one of the best beers that Iíve tried to date, regardless of style, and a sure Ďmust-tryí for all who appreciate the finer beers of the world. Hoping that this becomes more available in MA, because as of now, there are only a few places that you can enjoy this Ďworld-classí brew. Iíve yet to try Pliny the Elder and/or Younger, but have read that this DIPA rivals both. If you get the opportunity to try this beer, itís a must. Kudos Alchemist, looking forward to other offerings in the near future."

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2012 Smells of pine hops with a bit of honey sweetness and a touch of metallic copper. Taste is better than the nose - honey caramel malt, danh hoppy bitterness, and a hint of bitterness. Crisp dry feel. Not quite as good as the hype built it up to be.

tastybeer (1728) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Can. Pour is hazy orange/yellow with a nice white head, excellent retention/lace. Aroma is dank hops, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, light pine/floral notes, light caramel malt. Taste is quite bitter, big tangerine/orange hops with minimal malt sweetness. Palate is drier, very oily, soft, bitter finish. Outstanding - as good as Pliny or Dreadnaught.
