We love hops – that’s why our flagship Double IPA, Heady Topper, is packed full of them. Heady Topper was designed to showcase the complex flavors and aromas these flowers produce. The Alchemist has been brewing Heady Topper since 2003. This Double IPA is not intended to be the strongest or most bitter DIPA. It is brewed to give you wave after wave of hop flavor without any astringent bitterness. We brew Heady Topper with a proprietary blend of six hops – each imparting its own unique flavor and aroma. Take a big sip of Heady and see what hop flavors you can pick out. Orange? Tropical Fruit? Pink Grapefruit? Pine? Spice? There is just enough malt to give this beer some backbone, but not enough to take the hops away from the center stage.
Focal Banger is an American IPA brewed by The Alchemist in Vermont and crammed with Citra and Mosaic hops. It has a fantastic floral/pine aroma to it with a very drinkable citrus/grapefruit taste. There’s a hint of resin on the backend that tends to linger until the next sip.... the little sibling to Heady Topper.
The Crusher is an American Double IPA that The Alchemist started making years ago at the old pub. Hop heads were constantly asking for more hops.So, in the words of Frank Zappa, "Did you say you want some more? Well here's some more."While I enjoy hops with the rest of them, I still try to maintain some semblance of balance and drinkability. This beer is oozing with hop flavor and aroma with a very dry finish. Enjoy responsibly, this one can sneak up on you.++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
