All night long on the Holy Cow. A fantastic beer, just strong enough and so drinkable. 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.

Multifarious hoppiness emulates grapefruit, pine trees and lemons. Supporting malt is perceived, but without any distinctive signature. John Kimmich is the king of dry hopping on the east coast.
Tiny bubbles appear within the citrusy and peppery hops. Their rising bitterness reaches grass and resins, lingering beautifully, Soft biscuity and bready malts participate, as well. This recipe seems quite similar to Two Hearted Ale’s, so why isn’t this lauded as one of the country’s great IPAs? The perfume is as beautiful, the hop flavor is perfectly integrated to the cereals, the mouthfeel is suave, there are two alcohol points less, so more drinkability, and perhaps a tad more bitterness. This is brimming with quality and vivacity.
On cask at Alchemist. Smells of citrus and peppery hops with some pilsner malt in the background. Tastes hoppy with a nice malty palate. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2007
On tap at the alchemist. Hazy orange with a medium sized off whit head. Aroma is HUGE citrus, resiny, earthy hops with some pine thrown in as well. Taste is very hoppy and assertive, alot of citrus and pine, very resiny and lightly earthy, with a good biscuity malt backbone. Finishes pretty bitter that lingers for quite awhile. Holy Cow is right!

Golden blonde with a nice white head. Lots of citrus and resinous hops with a long bitter finale. very thirst question. Personnaly one of the best session IPA I’ve had in my life. And at 5,2% it’s more than welcomed. 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! wisdomsolo (466) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2014
This is FAN-DAMN-TASTIC! I personally think this one might edge out Heady Topper as the best IPA I've had. Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
Cuivrée légèrement voilée. Mousse en dentelle. En bouche, une merveille. Pamplemousse rose et jaune, caramel. Très bien balancée et bien maltée. Très bonne IPA. JoeMcPhee (9515) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2009
Amber hazy beer. This head with a sticky white lacing. Very, very hoppy aroma. Pine and light citrusy grapefruit resinousness. Bright and fresh and bracing, like sucking on pine cones and grapefruit peels. There is also a little touch of orange peel as well. Very lean pale maltiness that just stands aside and lets the hops work their magic. This is like a little taste of the Northwest here in the Northeast.
