This is insanely complex. Just tons of flavor and again awesome malt backbone similar to heady. Tart grapefruit, limes, with a bread like quality. Then big bitterness like orange rind and pine sap. Makes my mouth water.

Heady Toppers little sister @Anthony Lombardi Delishly hoppy and fragrant. Love me some #VT beer.

Not quite as complex as Heady Topper, but a good one nevertheless..

Funyun, garlic, pine, salty Meyer lemon nose. Flavor is inexplicably tart, with rubber hose, pine, and a sweet grilled scallion finish. Very interesting, more so than heady.

Not too harsh, not too light. Just kind of perfectly in the middle.

Better the the overrated Heady Topper IMO. Pure hop juice.
