The Alchemist Heady Topper
Waterbury, Vermont

After a recent hurricane washed out southern Vermont’s Mad River Valley Region, the Alchemist Pub and Brewery was forced to close due to flooding. Fortunately, the watery interruption coincided with the opening of a cannery on the other side of town, and the Alchemist’s are back in business. The Heady Topper is a delicious, hazy, double IPA— orange in color, unfiltered and unpasteurized. The beer tastes quite piney with tons of fresh grass hop flavor. Smooth and creamy finish, with a piney resin coating the mouth. John Kimmich, the Alchemist brewmaster, recommends drinking this 8% ABV American Double IPA right out of the can.
