The Alchemist Heady Topper
From: Waterbury, VT
Mike Lovullo says: This brilliant example of an American Imperial IPA comes in at 8% ABV with over 120 IBUs (International Bittering Units, used to measure a beer's bitterness). Even though the IBUs are high, the balance of this beer is superb. With a thick yeast backbone and sweetness from the malt bill, this beer goes down really smooth.
