22oz, thanks to ygtbsm94.
A- The pour is a clear, light amber orange with a thin, white head.
N- Massive fruity hops, big fresh Centennial and Cascade pellets, fresh grapefruit, pineapple, fresh pine, caramel. Really just a super dank hop nose.
T- Astringent, dry, resinous, loads of nutty bitterness piling on.
P- Dry, bitter, biting palate.
Sort of one dimensional.

I thought maybe the hype was too much for this beer, but god damn! This is amazing! The appearance is a dark golden hue with a nice head that lasts and then trails down the glass. The smell is full of citrus and baked bread. The taste is crazy complex with different sensations of hops coming through all through out the taste. Love this one, maybe a new favorite.

I was lucky enough to try my first Heady thanks to a very generous fellow BA(mojosly!!)
A: not sure because I "drank it out of the can!" Like it says to do but I gotta believe it looks like all great DIPA's do.. Hazy orangish with a cream head and a good amount of lacing?
S: smells of citrus.. I got alot of lemon and even a little flower bouquet.. Not much pine which was a bit surprising
T: citrus.. Less lemon than the smell.. More sweet.. Zero pine and no bitter after taste.. Devine!
O: very very good.. Is it better than other amazing DIPAs that I've had? Maybe? Either way it is damn good and I am stoked to get some more and try it out of a glass to see if it changes anything for me.. Thanks again for the hookup Nat!
