Best DIPA in the world. Feel like the ABV % is much higher than stated, which is a bonus.

Keep it cold, always. Never let it warm, it will change the taste. Drastically. I think lower reviews for Heady on this site had this beer shipped or let it warm up and re-cool.

This beer is amazing. Hoppy not bitter. Dangerously easy to drink. Every gulp is like the first gulp.

Beautiful hoppy smell!!

Really difficult to get though. Like a scavenger hunt. But IT IS TOTALLY WORTH THE HUNT. The brewery is temporarily closed to the public.
Victory tastes amazing!!
