The beer I just drank will be the closest to the heady I'm drinking.
I will be trying this from a growler for the first time tomorrow, and I can't wait.
Bohdi is the bee's knees!
Had my first Gandhi Bot the other night, and while it's not exactly like Heady Topper, I was struck by the similarities. Great beer!
Stone Ruination has shown the closest resemblance for me
Lagunitas Sucks when fresh batches come back this fall.
I've yet to try anything that's crazy close.
There's a local place in NH (Nepenthe ales) makes a IIPA called Lotus Eater - when it first came out last year the first batch of it was fairly close to Heady - it even looked like it. They've been tweaking the recipe quite a bit and I haven't had any that came close to that first batch, but that was the closest I've ever had.
If you homebrew, this recipe is amazing. Get a hold of some Conan yeast and you'll be golden. http://signpostbrewing.com/heady-topper-clone-brew-4-0/ I brewed a batch recently and I think it's incredibly close (I did a side by side with the real HT.)
