Heady Topper is not overrated. My first taste tonight (technically 4th) of this fine, superfine IPA , and I was not disappointed. West Coast style, in my opinion, and a beautiful cloudy hoppy dirty brew. If you pour it in a glass. Which is NOT recommended, so says the can. Well, some like it in the can, and I tried it, then poured it into a pint glass.

This pretty much defines what a brewer dreams hopwise. The alcohol is hidden, blends nicely at any rate, and will kick yer ass if you don't watch it. Cheers to Alchemist and Bobby Peru who's gift has not gone unappreciated.
