My Heady/Pliny Side by side comparison...
Taste--- Heady (by a hair)
Summary: Pliny The Elder was a bit more light, crisp and dry... Heady Topper was a bit more sweet, full bodied and well rounded. Had it been a little warmer, I would probably prefer Pliny... Looks like Heady by a hair in my opinion. That said, Pliny makes the perfect warm west coast DIPA!

7/22/14: at home, poured from a (fresh) can into a 16 oz. snifter
A: cloudy, light orange. some hop resin that sinks to the bottom.
S: one of the best smelling beers I've had: pineapple, orange, lemon, citrus.
T: similar to the smell, but the bitterness has a cumulative effect that grows harsher as you drink.
M: pretty balanced, not too thick/syrupy and not too dry.
O: the bitterness borders on being annoying, but the smell and taste more than qualify this to be considered among the best DIPAs around.
Serving type: can
