212. Alchemist Brewery Heady Topper
Appearance is unassuming but nice unfiltered orange color with slight head. The aroma makes up for the appearance with tons of citrus hops and a bit of pine, a truly great smelling beer. Taste is a bit more reserved than the smell but still has plenty of hops and some malts there to balance things out. This is what a DIPA should be with a fair amount of carbonation to help smooth things out and finishes dry making it very easy to drink and it does not drink like an 8% ABV beer. Really enjoyed this one, nice can with good artwork. Makes me want to visit Vermont so I can buy more.
