This is FAN-DAMN-TASTIC! I personally think this one might edge out Heady Topper as the best IPA I've had. electrotype (655) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Tire plus sur l’épineux/résineux que la Heady Topper. La Holy Cow est tout de même extrêmement réussie dans le style. Une combinaison de houblon qui n’est peut-être pas ma préférée ever, mais dont l’utilisation démontre définitivement une maîtrise de l’art du brassage. Une excellente IPA! kirk36 (223) - Peabody, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2014
Weaker DIPA. But really good...I need for it to stand out more. Think heady topper with hop leaves. That stands out as an DIPA. This is good but average. Or a bit higher than average. Think middle-upper class with overtime. Cloudy and golden-syrupy bitter and piney-floral but isn't that ever ipa? It's strong for sure but not unique. Among like IPAs I would have a difficult time identifying this as belonging to the alchemist. Probably not their signature but it is good and worthy of drinking. New to IPAs would be smitten. I am not.

Tall can pours a hazy gold with an off-white head. Vanilla malt and pine hop aroma. Tatse is identical with a creamy finish. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 26, 2014

Can. Pour murky orange with thick white head that lingers. Mild hop aroma over light carbonation. Typical Alchemist complex ipa with flavors of pepper, lemon and rye. Superb.

Cloudy gold. Loads of simcoe and pine nose. Creamy mouthfeel so piny and resinous. Very chewy and abv is there. Holy cow ! czar (9059) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2011
on tap at brewpub. clear deep golden, orange tint, decent white head, good retention and lacing. nose of strawberry-esque hops, toasted malts - nice malt structure. average carbonation, light to medium body. User133805 (5) - - AUG 17, 2011 does not count
All night long on the Holy Cow. A fantastic beer, just strong enough and so drinkable. Stine (1780) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Rustic orange in color, resinous and rich on the nose; caramel, some cinnamon, pine, perfume, a touch of banana. Robust hop flavor without much acidity; again, caramelly and warm with plenty of sweetness, and only the calmest resinous bitterness; it has a touch of sesame bitter-dry to it too.
Thick, prickly mouthfeel causes it to feel like a huge bitter pale ale when it isn’t, quite, but that’s not really a bad thing. It finishes crunchy and quick with mild, dried-out herbal hops. Easily reaching comfortable, if not inspiring, territory.
