This was my third attempt to clone one of my favorite double IPAs coming out my home state of Vermont, Heady Topper from The Alchemist Brewery.
Bend Brewing Company's 2007 GABF winning imperial IPA.
The secret to a good Imperial IPA is dry-hopping. It can make or
break this style. It is very important to have a huge aroma that leads
you into the beer, complementing the inherent bitterness.
