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!
Can... Pours hazy and golden with a small, wispy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is subdued, bordering on nondeScript - maybe some green onion in here - maybe not. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and airy carbonation. The flavor is nicely balanced by English biscuit and pale malts mingling with a mild measure of citrus acidity and a moderate amount of rindy bitterness. I wish I could smell this.

16oz can shared by JohnGonk. Pours a hazy burnt orange color with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, orange/lemon zest, grapefruit, and tangerine skins. Taste of bitter pine, citrus zest, rotted grapefruit, and caramel malt. Steasy66 (1155) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Blond with small white head. Nice piney and citric aroma. Reasonably tasty but not world class. reggiedunlop (3725) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Pours a hazy orange/honey color with a thick, foamy white head...nice lacing. Aroma has leafy citrus with hints of tea and tropical fruit...very floral and leafy. Flavor follows suit...adds so e light hoppy spice...slight pine and resin creep in for firm bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a dry resinous/earthy finish. Damn good!

Can. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Bland hop aromas. Non-descript hop notes dominate. Average body and mouthfeel. carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Can with a sticker... Aroma is pine citrus and a hint of can... (Alchemist says drink in the can) mouthful is crisp and we’ll balanced IPA goodness. It is a session well done. Just wish it could be a toto kinda beer.... Instead of a pop up sale rarity EamonTheGreat (157) - USA - MAY 12, 2014
The aroma is very creamy with hints of citrus. Taste is much the same. Smooth mouth feel with a creamy vanilla character that blends well with the citrusy hops. A delicious take on an IPA. Similar to Heady but distinctly creamy.

id say Heady Topper is better, but you can taste the similarities here as well.
