Heady Topper by The Alchemist

Posted by Keith Wallace

An Imperial IPA Review

Impressive aromatics of citrus, highly vinous aromatics of grapefruit, lemon rind, and caramel. On the palate, the complex fruit flavors continue. With mango, citrus, peaches, and pineapple all playing a part in the swirl of flavors in this extraordinary beer, rich and dry. A layer of malt and pine resin turns into perfume underneath the fruit flavors.

Under the finish of juicy richness comes a deep hoppy bitterness that twirls into caramelized grapefruit in the finish. This is one of the rarest of beers: big but balanced, highly hopped but delicate—a new classic.
