Don't Panic

Is there a beer that is "the alcoholic equivalent of a mugging - expensive and bad for the head?" The taste experience being "like having your brain smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick?" 

It's Towel Day, so it got me wondering what the beer equivalent of the Pan Galactic Gargleblaster is. Apparently Douglas Adams said that the laws of physics mean that it's impossible for one to be mixed on earth, and so I'm arbitrarily ruling cocktails out of the equation. I'd probably never go near a cocktail named after a PGG due to spending too many nights in Spiders when I was too young to know better. Also going to Canada for the experience seems a bit like overkill. So what beer do you think gets pretty close? Is this a prelude to #downDIPA?

Oh, and wherever you go today, don't forget your (beer?) towel.

(If you've never read The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy and you have no idea what the hell I'm banging on about, then shame on you.)
