Based off of one of the most exceptional east coast beers (in our humble opinion) on the market, this double IPA recipe instantly became one of our favorite ingredient kits! Our version of a Heady Topper clone recipe is packed with almost a pound of hops, and is definitely a beer that will have hopheads in hopheaven.
One of the first things we noticed when pouring this beer into the pint glass was the aroma. With a dry hop addition consisting of Apollo, Centennial, Columbus, Simcoe®, and Amarillo® hops, we weren't necessarily surprised. Impressed is more like it. A balanced malt profile helps to tame the bitterness, allowing the hop flavor and aroma to be the true star in this recipe.
If you're a fan of IPAs, double IPAs, or anything having to do with hops, this is one beer you need to brew!
