I absolutely love this beer. The first time I had it I wasn't overly impressed. Since then it has grown on me and I love it. I had been shying away from IPA's and there were few DIPA's I really enjoyed. Since having Heady several times over the last month I keep drinking more and more DIPA's only to be disappointed that it doesn't live up to Heady. Some may match it in 1 or 2 area's but I don't think there is an IPA or any style I would rather drink than Heady.

This beer is amazing and quite unlike most other beers I've had, even DIPA's.
I'm drinking it from the can, but I've seen it poured before. It's a murky, cloudy yellow bordering on orange that is pretty nice to look at, but won't win any awards for its appearance.
The smell. Oh god the smell. Grapefruit, pine, and citrus mixed into a beautiful cacophony of awesome.
Tastes about as awesome as it smells, and unbelievably smooth. I still can't honestly believe it's 8%. Begins sweet, with an awesome bitterness that builds over time and begs for another sip. Gets fruitier as it warms.
Mouthfeel is light and with decent carbonation, maybe could be a little fuller, but I'm nitpicking.
Overall probably my favorite beer (though I acknowledge my local bias). Definitely worth having if you're in the area.
