Great classic hop aroma for an imperial ipa. Notes of citrus fruit, grass, pine and some floral aroma. I only poured half (because can demanded I drink it from the can but I couldn’t help myself and had to see it) it was a bland gold color with some chill haze. Rich and creamy in the mouth it is like drinking a delicious hop emulsion.

Can: Poured a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is strong hops galore. Taste is super citrus hops and lingers all the way through.

Drunk from a bar in Vermont, weekly drop. Sure it’s fresh and dank but I find it a bit too dry and it was murky as hell when I put a small sample into a glass. The taste is there but it’s just too damn dry. The tropical fruits are excellent but I find this overrated compared to other IPA style kings.

fraternie (916) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2015
A big, aggressive, malty IPA, with tons of roasted caramel above its floral citrus and strong hop undertones. Balanced and lingers long, a monster for the style.

Franckg (526) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2015
En canette. Robe orangée trouble, col de mousse dense et moelleux. Arômes de punch aux fruits tropicaux. Orange, mangue, pêche, pamplemousse rose sucré, tangerine. Le tout sur un fond de résine de pin et de sucre doux. En bouche, trop de choses en même temps. Du jus tropical, un malt caramélisé juste à point et amertume résineuse superbe. Le tout dans un équilibre presque parfait. Mes papilles sont servies. Une finale fruitée de tangerine, pêche et pamplemousse et juste assez amère. Une texture peut-être un peu trop épaisse mais un corps bien rond. Haut taux d’alcool imperceptible, enseveli sous cette montage de saveurs. J’avais essayé le produit en fût mais je doit admettre que cette bière en canette est superbe.

Wywar z chmielu i to dosłownie. Tak buchajacego chmielem zarówno w aromacie jak i smaku piwa jeszcze nie piłem. Kapitalne pokłady cytrusów mango, owoców tropikalnych o wysokiej ale swietnie ułożonej goryczce, przy tym wszystkim zabojczo pijalne. BOMBA

No lies, this beer was fantastic. It wasn’t my favourite IIPA ever but I would recommend it, buy it again and enjoy every sip. This is a smooth one right here and not to be messed with at a hearty 8%. Fresh citrus hop flavour abounds and begs he enjoying to enjoy further. This yellow and cloudy king is a treat and a wonderful afternoon sipper for such a potent pleasure.

Strong citrus aroma. Golden in color with light head. Slight malt flavor but overly hoppy with strong citrus and slight piney flavors especially present at finish

Finally, the illusive, the illustrious, the.... illuminating, Heady Topper! The beer that needs no introduction! The beer we’ve all been waiting for. As far as beers go it’s an IPA’s world, and as far as ipas go this is one of the greats! But... Maybe it was it’s reputation that kind of made me expect a little more out of this beer. I mean don’t get me wrong this is a reasonably balanced, solid, intense ipa. I think I just set my sights a little higher than anything could ever be and then made myself disappointed...

Can split with diarmaidBHK - pours golden orange with a white head, nice lacing. Great piney aroma but not a lot of bitterness. Finally! An IPA that I like!
