Default You guys do realize... (overhyped beers)

That you have hyped Heady Topper and Hopslam so much that there is no way I can be anything but disappointed when I do actually find a bottle and taste them?

Agreed. Hopslam is overhyped and (gulp) overhopped. Not enjoyable IMO.

Heady Topper on the other hand was delicious.

FWIW I very much enjoy Hopslam. Never had Heady Topper.

Hopzilla from Terrapin or Lost Continent from Grand Teton are my favorite DIPAs. Hopslam is good, but not worth the hype.
