This is taking forever, I am so anxious to drink my clone. 2nd stage of dry hops are going in tonight, I hope to have it on tap by the Super Bowl.

I live an hour from the brewery...sorry I can't ship you any beer but if anyone does come up to Waterbury, VT PLEASE send me a PM so we can meet up. Prohibition Pig, Blackback Pub and Three Penny Taproom are all 10 minutes from the brewery and are awesome.

Also, drive an extra hour to Hill Farmstead Brewery and get some of the best IPAs you've ever had.

I wrote this blog post back in October detailing 3 of the best VT breweries and how to get their beer. - http://adam-jackson.net/beer/a-beer-...-2012-edition/

Even though I can get Heady whenever I want, I too am interested in a clone.

Actually, it isn't, a few years ago maybe. I suggest you make your way an hour south and check out what the "desert" has to offer. Bellwoods, Indie Alehouse, Bar Hop, Volo, Get Well, and many others are making and/or pouring some pretty tasty beers these days.

And I've made the trip to Vermont from Toronto recently. Its a pretty easy day drive, especially if you have a friend or two with you.

Just a follow-up on my latest attempt. My first tasting after 10 days in primary was pretty spot on..very exciting. Might have been a little less bitter, and maybe slightly less citrusy, but really close. The aroma from the whirlpooling was insane - like I had already dry hopped. Aroma was near perfect - fruity with a hint of pungent pine hops. I left it in primary for 4 more days and racked to secondary. Going into secondary, no more aroma. In 4 days, just completely gone. The taste changed quite a bit too. Pungent pine hops mellowed and the alcohol punch came through pretty strong, after only going down from 1.015 to 1.012 in 4 days. Still good, but I'm now thinking I may be less close than I first thought, but still too early to tell. Still has a very Heady taste...but not strong enough I don't think. I'm going to do the second round of dry-hopping right in the keg, then cold crash and chill for a week or so. I'll update again when it is done.
