Iíve had Pliny the Elder and this is much better.
The guy who said otherwise (ahem, Rick) must be smoking crack or is just blinded by west coast pride or some other bullshite.
Pliny was actually a huge disappointment and quite boring. Trust me.
The beauty of Heady T is that it doesnít have that cloying syrupy mouthfeel and sweetness that every Imperial IPA seems to have.

The initial swig from the can is very balanced, though definitely hop forward, and very clean. Once in a glass the aromas are very opened up. Tropical fruit, pineapple, citrusy. A slightly hazy appearance, light orange with a decently lasting white head. Dry, bitter, very clean. Medium bodied, highly drinkable.

Pleasing balance of hops and malt from the minute you crack the can to the last sip (when the beer has warmed somewhat, obviously). Not only is this beer exceptional, but it comes in tallboys as well! Very thoughtful. And as to the ratings that dinged HT on the íhype,í forget the hype. Rate the beer!

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, cloudy yellow beer, big white head, good lace. Aroma lychee, orange, mint and spring spruce. Taste is light malt, spruce resin, faint citrus, and citrus rind. I wish the taste delivered what the aroma promises. Still, this is juicy, yet light and drinkable, especially for 120ibu. Palate light, carbonation bright.

Bottle share (or can share). Beautiful aroma, heady indeed. Nice robust, slick body, hoppy notes dominate without distracting. Clean finish.

Poured from the can. Thin white head, glorious golden, lupulin hazy color. Tropical, citrus bomb on the nose. Hop dankness. Hints of sweet tropical fruit and notes of pine across the palate. Hides itís alcohol well. Overall a bomb double IPA

Ok this beer is awsome it has everything that you need from strong ipa. Hoppy aroma, fruity taste, good "in your face" bitternes and well hidden alco. In the other hand in Poland we have some dipaís that are equal and 4 times cheaper than this.

Piney and resonous with hints of fruit lying underneath. A bit cloudy Iím the pour with a nice white head. Flavor full of hops but not bitter which is good for someone who isnít the biggest ipa fan. Almost sweet on the back. Great representation of the style. Could be beginning of my conversion to ipas
