Heady Topper Clone from Homebrewtalk and Beer Advocate forums. Veganbrewer pulled together information from various sources and other brewers to create this clone. Need to try it, looks great and a ton of hops. Need to update yeast and water treatment when brewing again. One of the original Hazy NEIPAs
