Perfect example of an ipa. So much aroma and citrus flavors especially grapefruit up front. No lingering bitterness. So drinkable i drank 10 in one night. One of the few beers that lives up to the hype

Quite simply, the gold standard of IPA. Intensely hoppy, yet effortlessly drinkable. Pure balance. The more double IPA's I try, the more I appreciate Heady.
