Comparable to Heady Topper in my opinion, and less challenging to acquire. I even like the 12-ounce can, though I would not object to a 16-ounce repackaging. As good a beer as I have had the pleasure to enjoy. Can't wait for your return.

Had a few cans that were double-topped and lost all carb. Shame. Great DIPA, probably top-10 in Vermont (which says a lot).

Good Vermont DIPA
Not as good as Second Fiddle
Brewery needs to also provide in Growlers
Canned beer hasn't been as good
