Beer of the week: The Alchemist, The Crusher

Poured from a 16 oz can into a teku glass. It pours a hazy golden orange color with a slight white head. The aroma is heavy on the citrus and hints of tropical fruit along with dank resinous hop scent. The flavor outdoes my expectations, which is ridiculous considering the pedestal that I put Heady Topper on. It has a nice juicy hop punch to it, pineapple and citrus are abundant but do not overshadow the earthy hops and malt backbone. This is a very well balanced beer and insanely drinkable for the high 9% ABV. The Crusher has affirmed my love for The Alchemist beers. I would recommend this to any craft beer fan, get your hands on some of these if you can. I give The Crusher 9.8 pints out of 10, drink up!
