The best IPA in the world, Heady Topper by The Alchemist in Vermont!
Last July, The Alchemist in Waterbury, Vt. announced plans to double the production of its most popular beer, the double-IPA Heady Topper. Since then, Heady Topper has risen to the No. 1 beer in the world on Beer Advocate.

Happy March! I may have picked up some extra Heady Topper that was canned on Monday of this week (so its ridiculously fresh) and figured I would share some of it (especially if folks haven't had it). So I need a way to share it out - (I can't give everyone a can) - but I can run a contest - so I need ideas for said contest. Here is an example - buy a $10 ticket to the movie tomorrow - take a picture of said ticket or some other evidence that you were in attendance (and paid the $10) and post it here - then I can do a drawing of said attendees and voila - I deliver a 4-pack of fresh Heady Topper to the random winner. And then maybe a can or two to the and winner? How does that sound?
So , we still can't get the Alchemist's "Heady Topper" here in Addison County , but I had a Lagunitas IPA last night that tasted extremely similar to my untrained taste buds. . Anyone else find that to be true? I probably only have a few conneisseur beer-drinking friends on here, but wondering what you think! Lagunitas is from Petaluma, CA (where we passed thru last summer!) and I head read a few positive things and YEP they're the real deal . . Have another kind in the fridge now
Word has it that a banger of Heady Topper from The Alchemist will make an appearance late Sunday night in Midlothian. Easily one of the top 20 beers in the US - but I still like my Guinness regardless.

Off to VT for work. As Todd Snider says ‘B-double E-double R-U-N’. Heady Topper and Lawson’s you will be mine.
The more I drink Heady Topper the more I think it taste's like Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye. Which is a compliment...both ways. I just wanna know how they get that much hop aroma without tasting grassy or overly bitter (pre-isomerized hop extract?). It's like smelling a bowl of fresh hops while sipping a nice peppery rye. I don't even know if there's rye in Heady but it sorta tastes that way to me. Bah! Who cares...it's delicious.
We got back last night and one piece of duct tape on the cooler was tucked inside the cooler. Odd, I thought. Inside, all the beer was fine and the TSA left a note about the cooler being searcher. growler of Long Trail ($12 fill at Whole Foods) double IPA, 4 cans of Heady Topper, one Capt'n Lawrence special barrel aged ale, and a 6 pack of Southern Tier Hop Sun.
