16 ounce can thanks to ekroper, thanks a ton Ed, poured a hazy orange color wih huge aromas of fresh pineapple, pine, citrus, and a kiss of caramel. Flavors were just the same a mixture of fresh tropical fruit andsone pine resin. Wow this beer was so good I drank all the cans he sent me in one sitting, there was never enough.

So I am finally getting to try this. Trev was nice enough to send me some relatively fresh cans, you are too nice. It’s a murky light golden color with a medium head. Some green and citrus hops, not a lot of bitterness on the noise. Flavor is malt heavy moderate bitterness. It’s nothing like I expected and surprisingly not as hoppy as thought. It’s malt heavy and hides the hoppiness more than I like. I guess it’s fine and just not worth the hype for me.

Ok aroma, slight pepper scent with a bit of hops. Very cloudy and not that pretty to look at, with a pale yellow color. I see why they want you to drink it out of the can. The taste is disappointing; some hops, not much citrus and just a bit of funk. Not what I thought this beer would be.

pours a golden orange (I tried it first from the can) Aromas of Orange, citrus, hops. Taste is a hop bomb in the best possible way. Super balanced and super drinkable. Lives up to the hype.

Can. Golden orange pour, with a white head. Citrus, tropical fruit, high bitterness, grassy, grapefruit, mango, mild caramel sweetness, and some pine. Medium body, pretty drinkable, and very tasty. A nice IPA, I would want to drink this again.

Aromat: chmiel amerykański z grejpfrutem na czele, początkowo aż bucha z tej puszki. W tle akcenty słodowe- zboże, ciastka, karmel. Niestety po chwili nuty utleniania także, a chmiel staje się bardziej herbaciany i ziołowy. Barwa: złota, wyraźnie zamglona, z biało - żółtą pianą. Jest ona drobno pęcherzykowa, choć przechodzi w grubą, niezbyt ładną. Obfita umiarkowanie i niezbyt trwała, ale ładnie oblepia szkło. Smak: słodko- kwaskowy, zbożowo- ciastkowy, z chmielową kontrą i miodowym posmakiem. Goryczka owocowa, umiarkowana, równoważona przez słodycz i kwaskowość. Pełnia krągła, wysycenie umiarkowane, kwaskowatość i alkohol na finiszu. Alkoholowość zwiększa się zresztą z czasem, podobnie jak goryczka. Puszka przywieziona do stolicy z BGM we Wrocławiu. Jedno ze słabszych DIPA, jakie miałem okazję próbować. Wielka szkoda, bowiem ostrzyłem sobie na nie zęby. Problemem piw amerykańskich w Polsce jest jednak długa droga, jaką muszą do nas przebyć drogą morską, przez co często trafiają na nasz rynek piwa stare i pozbawione aromatu. Amerykanie niejednokrotnie wzbraniają się także przed podawaniem daty ważności, co także nie powstrzymuje importerów przed kupowaniem butelek niezbyt świeżych. Niestety tak było w tym przypadku. Piwo utlenione i tracące na wartości z każdym dniem. I to ma być trzecia DIPA na świecie? Zwłaszcza za ponad 30 pln, za mniej niż 0,5 l.

craftbeerdesign (2215) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2015
Can. Drank from the can and poured into a snifter. Out of the can you get a creamy fuller body with excellent fruit forward hop flavors. In the glass the body is a little more muted but you get the wonderful citrus and stone fruit hop aromas. Very hazy appearance. Overall an excellent IIPA that has more body than the west coast IIPAs. Big citrus / stone fruit forward hop notes. Nice bitterness - not over the top and very smooth and easy to drink. Lives up to the hype.

derBreslauer (141) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 26, 2015
Has great aroma of tropical and citrus fruits. Hazy, pale body with nice head. Tastes great, has little malty background and powerful grapefruit hoppy finish. Bitterness intensifies in aftertaste. Greatly drinkable, you wouldn’t notice this ABV. Top class beer.

Heady Topper is excellent but there are many beers that I would rate ahead of it.

PabloZab (327) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 25, 2015
Can. Barwa zlota, miodowa, piwo metne, piana biala srednio trwala, delikatnie krazkuje. Cytrusy rz?dz?, intensywny aromat czerwonego grapefruita, swiezy, lekko slodkawy. W smaku lekko wytrawne, goryczkowe na wysokim poziomie skontrowane delikatny slodycza, goryczka cytrusowa, srednio dluga, chmielowa, minimalnie sciagajaca. Pijalne az za dobrze, niebezpiecznie pijalne, mozna powiedziec.

Can. Amber beer with a cream head. Summer fruit and tropical fruit aroma with grapefruit and pine. Grapefruit and tropical fruit flavor with light pine. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Tropical fruit and grapefruit linger with light pine and light malt backing.
