I was fortunate to try this beer twice thanks to a good friend. Once when it was ranked #3 back in 2011 or 2012 when I was still a novice beer drinker and had no idea what dIPA beer was or how it was suppose to taste. Now after trying over 200+ beers I would say my taste for beer has developed alot more esp. enjoying Sours, IPAS, and any stouts barrel aged I cam to appreciate this beer much more. Loved the aromas and taste of all the hops and flavors delivered from
start to finish. Cheers to Heady-topper

A review is meaningless, there's nothing to complain about unless you haven't had it before, in which case you are most definitely doing something wrong. So dank, so heady.
There's a limited supply every season so don't bother if you hate IPA, not tryna get robbed by somebody "trying something new" just because "people seem to like it".
