This is hands down my favorite beer. My buddy often works in Vermont and we are always requesting Heady Topper. It can make a bad day awesome, an awesome day awesomer. It is just a great thing to look forward to.

Received as an extra, (thanks Buford), and was excited as I was looking for this beer.

Worth the wait and oh so good! Pours as an IPA should. Aroma of hops and tastes clean and hoppy, but nothing like you'd think, refreshing and makes you want more!
