L: light orange color that's easy to see through. Large creany white head. Surprised it isn't murkier coming from the alchemets
S: Lot's of orange. Some lemon zest.
T: Nice orange flavor, pretty bitter and not juicy at all. Bitterness that lasts with a nice malt profile and some pine flavor.
F: Medium bodied with a nice carbonation
O: I came in expecting more of a juciy beer but this is more similar to a west coast DIPA which really hit the spot after the NE IPAs I've been having lately.

On tap at the Reservoir. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Nice white head. Leggy with a nice white collar. Sticky lacing.

Smell - Super hoppy. Lots of orange, but herbal hops in equal measure. Sweet pale malts.

Taste - Immediately tastes like Heady Topper, but then an herbal character takes over. Grassy and orange-y. Sweet in the middle. Minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium to medium heavy. Sweet, but there's enough hop flavor to justify it.

Overall - I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this is just Heady with a slight change in malt and hops. Plus the orange additions. As a result, it's awesome.
