Quit whining and brew your own. Isn't there a very small and lightly-read thread about that somewhere?

The can of Heady Topper that I poured into a glass wasn't exactly appealing. I could see the hop sheen, and it had little lacing and thin head. Tasted okay just not visually impressive.

I enjoy Heady Topper, and I too like harvesting the yeast from the cans. It's really a great yeast.

I will admit that after drinking about 12 cans of the stuff I think it's a tad overrated. I agree with an earlier comment that it's built up by people due to the fact that it's hard to come by. Don't get me wrong... It's a great beer, but I honestly enjoy my homebrewed DIPA's just as much.

Since I do a bit of beer trading I would definitely trade for it again, but I don't think it's worth trading white whales for it.

It's the best DIPA I've had to date. Alchemist really hit one out of the park with Heady.

I over-rated..? No way.

Over-hyped.. yeah

Speaking of which, I'm waiting for the answer to that thread's title.

Has someone actually cloned it yet? Every time I've clicked on that thread, it's lots and lots of posts about "attempt #4" etc.

I hope someone will post the recipe when a generally accepted clone comes about.

Attempt #4 is supposedly pretty darn close.

Why clone it when you can steal the yeast and make something better or more unique. My first use of conan is going to be a huge South Pacific DIPA
