UPDATED: JUN 10, 2014 16 oz can shared by Huhzubendah. Thanks Matt! Pours a hazy translucent light golden with a wisp of white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is incredible: Perfectly bitter with notes of tropical fruit and perfectly balanced hop bitterness. Nothing more can be said; this is clearly the perfect DIPA. Flavor is more of the same - words are inadequate to describe the perfection in the glass. There is no way this beer could improve. Perfection. Rate 6/7/14.

Hazy amber/gold color; Medium creamy body; Aroma of rich pine/resin hops, floral, & citrus; Flavor of slight sweet malt, caramel, rich pine hops, some tropical fruit, and citrus (notably tangerine & grapefruit); Finish is dry & bitter; The alcohol is fairly well hidden; Very nicely balanced; Worth the hype - simply awesome!

Can pint. Ha! Aroma is very hop, floral. Appearance is I can't tell cause I am drinking it out of the can. I assume a dark bronze. Taste is a resiny hop that is medium bodied that finishes very floral. Never had an IPA like it. Overall, very interesting. Would love to try on cask. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks Luke L for the can. Released for sale only three days prior to consumption. The can instructs to drink directly from it. I had to pour a bit anyway to gauge the color, but after a comparison, I think I like the glass better. Color is very light, like pineapple juice, hazy-to-cloudy, 1cm head, but fades quickly to ring and oily film. Aroma (from tulip glass) is a citrus blend, huge pineapple, ripe orange, lemon, grapefruit, and a smaller bit of fresh pine. Very fruity and sweet like juice. Flavor is: lots of citrus, floral notes, a more acidic (less sweet) orange, bit of grapefruit, and, again, pineapple. Only a touch of neutral sweetness, then lots of pine when more air is inhaled with the sip. Bitterness is smooth, big, getting heavier as it warms. Mouthfeel is medium, sticky, bit of pillowy carbonation of moderate coarseness. Great beer! Not the best IPA Ive ever had; hop oils are different than the typical big, bad (and amber colored) IPAs that I love, maybe less farnesene and berry notes, less floral. As it warms, it gets a bit more bitter than Id prefer given how light it is (little malt flavor to balance). Excellent, not a top 3 though.

Resin, citrus, spruce, floral tastes come in waves moving from the front of the tongue to the back of the pallet. The flavors just keep on coming and never stop. Bitter then citrus and pine landing on grapefruit. Amazing dispersal of hop flavors during the entire experience. Some yeast aftertaste very present as you near the bottom of the aluminum shrine that contains this magic. Outstanding IPA.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2015 What more can I say about this beer that hasnt been said or discussed? Pour was golden and cloudy and had some pieces of hops floating around. Aroma was pine, citrus and bursts out at you. Its a very nice and complex smell and it lasts. Taste followed the nose, some pine with plenty of citrus....grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, orange. Highly bitter, but very easily drinkable. I thought it went down quite smoothly. A little dry on the finish. This was the second time that Ive had this and each time was split with a friend. We enjoyed it each time and its a quality beer. No differences were noted, so it means they are consistent with their product.

Poured an orange/golden hue that was very clear. The head dissipated quickly. Smelled of citrus with hints of pine. Tasted piney with a bit of sweetness at first taste. The bitterness faded quickly, the can was about 8 months old, so I think it probably tasted quite a bit different than a fresh can.

Best beer I've ever had. I wish I knew how to get more. I live in PA. It's brewed in VT. Time for a road trip! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ah la fameuse Heady Topper, est-ce quelle est la hauteur de sa rputation? Oh que oui! Un vritable jus de houblons fruits et rsineux avec une prsence de crales mielleuses pour quilibrer le tout, cest la DIPA qui se boit le mieux au monde ... bon jexagre peut-tre, mais cest tout de mme divin boire. Quoique son profil aromatique est indniable, une douce amertume se pointe en finale, ne serait-ce que pour donner un petit kick une bire dj savoureuse au possible. Dore et orange, une jolie couronne de mousse se dresse au-dessus du verre et nous incite y plonger le plus rapidement possible et quand on plonge, il ny a plus de retour en arrire, vous serez accros pour le restant de vos jours.
