From can. Aroma is a large, wet, hoppy perfume. A good helping of grapefruit. Intense. Taste does not disappoint. Bitter upfront, but girded with nice, subtle sweetness, and underlying notes of meaty grapefruit and pine resin. Very well done. Nicely balanced. The less malts, more hops flavor gamble really pays off here. Dry, yet smooth, mouthfeel. Poured the end of the can into tasting glass. Color is a hazy, pilsner yellow. A DIPA that drinks like a session beer. mcc5468 (122) - USA - MAR 30, 2014
Aroma is pure hops. Appearance is a hazy orange- what you would picture an IPA to be. Taste is an awesome presentation of citrus hops. I love the carbonation in this beer - it is very lively. All in all - it is the best beer I have ever had. bmoosey (82) - Eldorado, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Poured from a can at home. Copper orange in color with a white head. Smell is of citrus, grapefruit, and hops. The flavor is equal to the smell. Citrus, grapefruit flavor with a malty taste. Overall crisp beer with hops at the end of it. I’m not a huge hop head, but this beer lived up to the hype. Extremely enjoyable beer. Paincane (171) - Georgia, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Copper orange colored pour into pint glass producing an off-white head leaving a moderate amount of lacing. Citrusy, and hoppy floral aromas. Grapefruit flavor with malt backbone and crisp clean dry hop bitter finish. Medium bodied, chunky with hop resins and active carbonation. Extremely enjoyable and flavorful beer.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Great hoppy, piney aroma. Creamy citrus taste. Lots of hop presence. Really good. Definitely one of the better dipas I’ve had. The only thing keepin the score down is that I don’t love ipas

Cloudy orange with a foamy white head. Big piny hop scent. Bitter bite thats wrapped in a creamy foam. Creamy bitter aftertaste. Amazing. KevinfromNH (12) - Concord, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2014
I’ve 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 doesn’t have that cloying syrupy mouthfeel and sweetness that every Imperial IPA seems to have.

Holy moly this is a smooth ipa. Just delicious hoppy smoothness that goes down so smooth. vizzionman (2) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2014 does not count
There is a lot of hype on this beer and it is very hard to get. I was lucky enough to score a four pack with a trade. It was a solid beer overall but there was something I didn’t like about the aftertaste after each sip. It would dissipate quickly, however I still didn’t like that short aftertaste I got. Otherwise, it lives up to it’s reputation.
