Couldn’t resist, had to pour it. Hazy amber/orange pour with a white head. Aromas of tons of citrus peel, and lots of floral notes, with some slight pine. Flavor is a wonderful balance of hops and malts not overly bitter but plenty of hoppy goodness. Crazy smooth and very drinkable. This lives up to all of the hype. So freakin good! Props to Drewbzzz for the can! Thanks man! Hollyw (21) - - FEB 5, 2014
Ahhh piney flowery hoppy love. Smells great. Looks great. Love drinking out of the can. I wonder if I'd love this as much if it was easy to get... Probably. The only negative thing I can say is I can only drink one of these and I'm drunk. High alcohol content.

Drank straight from can as directed. Drank straight from the fridge at first, but let warm up a little bit in order to get the full flavor. The smoothest IPA one can drink. seantaylorus (23) - - FEB 4, 2014
This beer made me like IPA's. I always heard that it was an acquired taste, well, Heady Topper, thanks for helping me acquire it. Now I like a whole slew of IPAs but my memory of this one was that it was perfect. suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Hazy orange/amber colored pour. Small, somewhat soapy looking head. With big soda-type bubbles. Little bit of splotchy lacing left behind. A lemony aroma of hops, some dankness and pine mixed in. Taste is citrusy, leaning more towards orange with some lemon mixed into it. A slight bit of sweetness. Finishes sweeter than I though it would. A slight bit of alcohol warmth. Not much bitterness. Much more sweetness than bitter. Decent. Not sure how you could get any of this without pouring it OUT of the can. You wouldn’t. It would just be for getting drunk at that point. This is a decent Americanized version of an English IPA though. If they made DIPAs over there.

Can at home. Superb aroma of fresh pine and musty, dried flowers. Super smooth palate, full of bright fruity flavors. Bitter, fruity finish. bursprak (3285) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2014
So the hyped Heady found its way to Denmark. Does it live up to the hype? I would say YES! Enoyed half of this straight from the can and poured the rest into my IPA glass. Liquid is clear golden with a nice dense head. The nose is as nice as it gets, loaded with passionfruit, peaches, grapefruit and elderflower. Taste is really balance between the sweetness of the malt and the fruity hops. Lots of exotic fruits as in the nose. Doesn’t get overly bitter like other IIPA’s. Really nice!

Got a few cans in a trade. Was supposed to be ~4 weeks old. Drank out of the can every time, as per instructions on the can. Was a sweet, hop forward ale. Great, resinous hoppy mouth-feel. Extremely consistent hop profile and drink-ability. Not too heavy on the stomach, which was nice also! Great IIPA! delorean15 (1) - - JAN 31, 2014 does not count
Lucky enough to have tried this canned wonder. Love the citrus notes and pine flavor. Best beer I've ever had. readyforaheady (1) - Dover, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 26, 2014 does not count
There is nothing like fresh Heady. Amazing aroma that hits you right in the face. It’s not over the top with bitterness like a lot of double IPAs. Overall, it is a perfect balance.
