Hazy apricot color with sudsy white head. Great retention and lacing. Aroma is just straight fresh hoppiness. Bitter everywhere; up front, in the middle, at the end. Some light waves of peach, pine, and mango, but bitterness dominates. Dry and crisp. Good carbonation. This beer is all about fresh hops. Usually not a fan of overwhelming bitterness, but this is a great beer.

Super fresh hops. The citrus notes make this a really distinctive brew.

Very very hoppy but great if your a hop head. Bought at the alchemist with focal banger, heady and beelzabub. All same price, nice score..!

My absolute favorite. Big punch of tropical tasting hops. Aftertaste flavor is floral, strong DIPA.

As others have noted....perhaps not quite as smooth or pleasant on the finish as Heady, but that by no means makes this a bad beer. Very citrusy, resinous DIPA. Well concealed 9% ABV. Slightly more bitter on the finish than others I've had, but still a winner.

Awesomeness! Smells hoppy and fruity. On pull hops that fade to a sweet citrus flavor but never loses bitterness. Sort of a sweet and sour double. Very good

Great citrus hoppy splendor. Perfect piney dry finish

This is like a suped up version of heady topper. A bit more bitter and boozy. Not quite as smooth but still an awesome beer that will knock you on your ass

Similar to heady, but with a more piney/resiny bitterness on the finish, also missing that malt spiciness, great imp ipa
