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.

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