4.2/5  rDev -1.4%

Six packs of this have recently re-appeared in Alberta and I snagged a couple ASAP. For the foreseeable future this is probably as close to anything from the Alchemist as we are likely to see here, a collaboration with the typically excellent Dieu Du Ciel that one can maybe imagine captures at least a little of the magic of the vaunted Heady Topper. A hazy bright yellow hue with a decent amount of creamy whitish head, the aroma meets one's expectations handily, a whole ton of mixed citrus (grapefruit, orange, lemon, lime), pineapple, passion fruit, and something sweeter like gummy candy or dried mango perhaps, although this sweetness really does not carry over much onto the palate. Smells super fruity but notable in its almost woody tannic dryness, although one certainly gets a decent dose of citrus flavor, particularly blood orange, tangerine, and lime. The aggressive hopping regime also offers up some toasted onion notes although these only add to the experience. Initially it was difficult to taste the malts but over time a little toast and light molasses emerge. Still remarkably dry from start to finish, which lets the hop flavors truly shine. Brilliant. A little pear emerging late. Medium bodied and well-carbonated. Glad I got 11 more of these to savor. Obviously one to consume in a timely fashion. A top three Canadian IPA choice for me, and the best bet for dry but vibrant citrus and tropical flavors.

4.19/5  rDev -1.6%

12oz chalice at Beer Revolution Oliver - nice to get a heads-up from a fellow beer nerd that this is available here, when I'm already on the way! Alchemist in Alberta (sort of)!

This beer appears a rather hazy, medium golden amber hue, with one skinny finger of puffy, bubbly, and weakly foamy dirty white head, which leaves some distant active storm cloud lace around the glass as it duly recedes.

It smells of fresh-squeezed grapefruit zest, orange cream, pine resin, and bready caramel malt - simple, but in the simply awesome sense. The taste is a veritable Save-on Foods produce aisle orgasm of lemon, orange, and grapefruit rind, grainy, biscuity caramel malt, a further hint of toffee candy sweetness, wet leafy pine needles, a mild stoney flintiness, and smashed and smushed earthy, perfumed hops.

The carbonation is sort of laid-back, and earns a participatory sticker for little more, the body a sturdy medium weight, and actually smooth amongst all that swirling fresh hop (and patently welcome, let's be clear) astringency. It finishes off-dry, barely, as the grainy caramel malt keeps a stiff upper lip in the presence of such a heady, topped-up (I couldn't resist) green hoppiness, booyah!

Like the little brother of you-know-who, what with all the hop character one could ever expect. A wee bit toned down, sure, but I would have hardly known if I hadn't enjoyed Big Bro a mere few months ago. Awesome on tap, and a bit too expensive for the native brewery's offerings, so I'm ever so keen on seeing this stuff in the standard DDC 4-packs in the near future.

Bottle: Poured a hazy deep bright beige color male with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma is a sucker punch of floral hoppy notes with some citrus and some green hoppy notes. Taste is full of hoppy notes with plenty of citrus, some green and hay notes. Malt backbone is almost hard to distinguish beneath all the hops oils. Body is full enough for style with good carbonation. I will gladly drink instead of HT which is so hard to obtain right now.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

A: Big, off-white head, sudsy and persistent; hazy golden copper color, nice lacing.

S: A big hoppy nose, lots of sweet citrus and grapefruit with a some tropical fruit notes with a bit of barny/grassy notes.

T: The taste is a bit drier than the nose, the grapefruit zest dominates here with some pine and a massive wack of bittering hops making a great dry hop backbone; definitely a raw grassy note on the finish that pairs well with the dry bittering hops. The finish is dry and long!

M: Nice carbonation and medium body, smooth and round.

O: This IPA has a nice balance to it but still gives an aggressive hop smack in the mouth!

Enjoyed at DDC`s anniversary party/Zwanze Day.

No carbonation, totally creamy. Flavor is lush with fruit and raw, feel is awesome yet quite bitter. Body is a hazy orange color, good hops aroma wafting from the glass. Sweet touch to it and crazy drinkable. Please bottle this!

Huge thanks to papat444 for sending me this in another amazing trade.

A: Pours slightly hazy pale apple juice colour with 1-2 fingers of bone white head leaving minimal lacing.

S: Amazing upfront tropical fruit of guava and pineapple together with citrus fruit and hints of pine.

T: Immediate bitter notes of grapefruit, pine, resin and hints of grass. Gets a little harsher with noticeable alcohol esters as it warms.

M: Moderate mouthfeel with light to medium carbonation.

O: One of the best smelling IPA's I've had. The taste doesn't quite match but a great IPA in the end. Hopefully these about on our shelves in BC soon.

341ml Bottle from March Omni for $14 for a 6 pack

Appearance - Slightly hazy gold colour with an average size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, apricots, grapefruit/lemons

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, grapefruit/lemons, and hops. There is also some caramel and apricots and a bit of floral and resin.

Overall - Some of the flavour reminds me of hop side of their L'Herbe à Détourne. I am really excited that this will be a regular listing available to me locally. A really great beer that definitely has shades of heady topper. Beers like this will slow down my american cross border beer buying trips.
