Here's my post on it. I work with Conan very regularly. I also have some other posts related to the yeast you can see in my sig.

Yeast ring is looking damn fine today. Definitely getting some good yeast growth in here. It smells delicious too. You can tell that so many of the tropical flavors come directly from this yeast strain. I'm so excited to brew with this.

Just so you don't lose hope later on, those tropical aromas will go away as you get further and further away from the initial dregs, after each step up. It's just that it's really the actual Heady Topper that gives those smells, not the yeast fermentation. Once you get to the size where you have to decant, most of the tropical notes will be gone and depending on how hot you are fermenting, other strange smells may appear due to the oxidation and stuff.

Sambr0n1

Here is what I just picked up. Let's work out a trade. I want a 4pack of fresh Heady and would be interested in some KBS or Hill Farmstead too.

Pliny is good but heady is wayyyy better. IMO zombie dust is better. I've had Pliny once and could careless to have it again.

I haven't had either that you mentioned since we don't get it out here, but a FRESH Pliny is hard to beat. However, I would imagine that a lot of breweries are starting to catch up to Vinny from RR since he has been so forthcoming with his ideas and craft. Hopefully I can trade with someone for some Heady so that I can compare them myself.

Agreed fresh is key! Maybe I'm just spoiled there's a reason that heady is #1 on BA. More people then just me agree!
