Can shared by Mike. Thanks! Pours dark golden with off white head. Aroma is sick. And by that I mean awesome. Wet resiny sticky hops dominate the nose. Flavor follows the nose and has a great meaty malt backbone to back it up. Medium mouthfeel. This tastes amazing. Its worthy of all the praise it gets. Just awesome.

It is genius brew indeed. Hazy, orange, golden color with lasting white head. Aroma and taste is all about citrus fruits. You got it all, lime, lemon, orange, grapefruit, some peach too. Mild bitter finish, very noble hoppiness backed up with a little alcohol. Extremely drinkable!

MarcoDL (2789) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2015
Can @ ZEBF 2015. There it is, the legendary Heady Topper. Got a fresh one, three days old it seemed. Itís a nicely hopped double IPA, with a bitter taste of pine, citrus and bitter peach. Caramelly malt body. Nice.

16 ounce can. Pours a cloudy yellow gold color with a moderate creamy beige head. Aroma is pine and grapefruit. Flavor is bittersweet malt and lots of juicy tropical fruit. Notes of pineapple, grapefruit and mango. There is an underlying sweet caramel maltiness. Every sip brings complex hops and tropical fruit. Amazingly drinkable for such a highly hopped IIPA.

Salmoniform (1222) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Poured from can to glass. Golden straw hue with creamy white head. Aroma is pine, orange peel, tangerine. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a hop bitterness following. Overall this is a nice IPA.

Extremely super heavy hop taste and aroma. These beers that are just a dumptruck full of hops donít impress me at all.

Chased it down while in Vermont for bachelor party. Even though Iím not a real fan of ipas, I was glad to get my hands on a pairof 4pks to bring home. Excellent balance made this not overly bitter and extremely drinkable.

Drank at ZeeBra 2015 (20-6-2015). One of the best IPAs out there. Rich, compelling, fresh, hoppy taste. Not too plain or too soft. Sharp and compelling. Like it.

An IPA as it should be. Tropical fruits, grapefruit, pineapple and with a good bitter finish. Love this one.

Orange color, hazy beer, 2 fingers white head, little and medium bubbles, lasing. Aroma: piny resin, lemon, gapefruit, sweet orange, mango. Taste: medium sweetness, medium bitterness. More sweet flavours like mango, sweet orange, mandarine than in aroma. A little bit lingering resin-grass bitterness, which is building up and increasing in beer as it warms up. Palate: low carbonation, medium body, smooth. Well hidden alcohol, beside minimal warming in stomach you cant say its high abv. Overall: really good IPA, but not as good as itís hyped. Definitly have no start to rochefort 10 or other excellent beers, even in IIPA category I wont say its the best. If you drink for the can (as alchemist suggest), you get less of aroma, and more of pure taste, slightly different experience, but I prefer way it taste from glass.
