Ecstatic to have had it on-tap at Prohibition Pig in Waterbury, Vt. I had heard great mutterings that this could be better than Heady. Oh baby.

A: Pretty, but I didn't have enough time to appreciate it in my anticipation.

S: MUCH more citrusy than Heady, yet more orangey than grapefruit.

T: Dear God. Juicy orange, juicy orange, juicy orange. Simply amazing.

M: Creamy and delicious, my good friend likened it to a creamsicle--I somewhat agree.

O: Undoubtedly superior to Heady Topper. If they ever can this, look out. Get it if you can for the love of God.

On tap at the Reservoir. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Nice white head. Leggy with a nice white collar. Sticky lacing.

Smell - Super hoppy. Lots of orange, but herbal hops in equal measure. Sweet pale malts.

Taste - Immediately tastes like Heady Topper, but then an herbal character takes over. Grassy and orange-y. Sweet in the middle. Minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium to medium heavy. Sweet, but there's enough hop flavor to justify it.

Overall - I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this is just Heady with a slight change in malt and hops. Plus the orange additions. As a result, it's awesome.
