Based off of one of the most exceptional east coast beers (in our humble opinion) on the market, this double IPA 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 Amarillo, Apollo, Centennial, Columbus, and Simcoe, 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 Heady Topper clone is one beer you need to brew!

Great tasting IPA.
Vincent S on Jan 20, 2018
the recipe states that it is a 90 minute boil, is there any other difference from the "standard" extract brewing method?
KIRK VANBROCKLIN on Jan 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I looked back at my notes. The brew was pretty much standard. I had just started using an aerator to oxygenate the wort just prior to pitching. Was experimenting with the amount time. One big difference in fermentation. This was my first dry hopped beer. Turned very well in the end, and a very potent (ABV 10% plus) IPA. I think the recipe called for 3-5 days dry hopping. If you use a hop bag or rocket it will make bottling much easier. That dry hop puts a lot of mess into the beer. Don't start the dry hop any earlier than 5 days.
