16 oz can. Drank straight from the can. no freshness dating. thanks to markasparov for this one.

a- the haziest ipa i've ever seen. extremely murky and lots of floaties. Has with a nice, fluffy head. a bit of lacing.

s- out of this word. has a huge wave of piny hops and grapefruit and orange, and every other delicious thing you can imagine.

t- the juiciest ipa i've ever had. this is mind-blowing. i can taste and smell this beer even after i put it down, and putting this beer down is really difficult. this is like the biggest citrus orgasm in a beer ever. the hops in this are delicious, but the maltiness in this beer is equally insane.

m- incredibly well balanced. the perfect carbonation. i can't say anything else. But at 8%, this is the most drinkable beer I'eve ever had.

o- This is for Mark: Heady Topper...How do I begin to explain Heady Topper? Heady Topper is flawless. I hear a case of this stuff should be insured for $10,000. I hear Heady does car commercials...in Japan. Heady's favorite activity is knocking people senseless over the head with its awesomeness. One time, John Stamos drank Heady on a plane...and said it was pretty (unbelievable). One time, it punched in the face with its deliciousness...It was awesome.

Perfection. The best. Anyone who likes beer must drink this before at least once. I am lucky enough to have family and have born near Waterbury, Vermont. I'm not a big IPA fan, but his is certainly the best beer you will ever hope to try. I especially love that it is only in cans.
