A big West Coast style imperial IPA, with loads of late addition hops and a quarter pound of dry hops. It finishes nice and dry, and is dangerously easy to drink. Additions of Columbus, Simcoe, and Nugget lend big, pungent American hop flavors, with a giant, heady aroma that punches you in the nose. Heady Nugz is, in fact, a beer that makes a completely irresponsible use of hops. If you are a certified hophead, this beer will be right up your alley!
A yeast starter or two packs of liquid yeast are suggested for this big boy

Heady Nugs?
Well with a name like that you know what to expect ,if you've had the Topper. I was disappointed with the outcome both flavor and aroma wise,it's not a bad brew but it was not close enough for my expectations.

Owner Response: Leonard - Thanks for the feedback! This kit was not intended to be a Heady Topper clone. I don't think we have that mentioned anywhere in the description, so sorry for the confusion. We're working on a clone for that beer at the moment though :)
Sugar free beer.
This is a great kit. I still have a week in the fermenter, but the color and aroma tell stories of good things to come. My only complaint was that this kit did not come with sugar.

Owner Response: Juan - Thanks for the review! I'm sure you will love it once its carbed and ready to go! As for the priming sugar, thanks for the feedback. We choose not to include priming sugar, as many of our customers keg their beer and it would not be needed. Enjoy the homebrew and thanks for your business. Cheers! Bryan & the GF Team
