Tennessee

4.5/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark amber color with a smaller bar pour light tan head. Good lacing from the smaller head though.

Aroma is wonderful caramel and crystal malt hints with a huge west coast hop nose. Huge amount of hops on this one fruity citrus and pine resin.

Taste is sweet caramel malts then bam the hops show up pine but big grapefruit rind appears and lasts through out the finish. Finish is defiantly big C type hops but there are earthy hints and even would almost say pepper notes.

Mouthfeel is a big medium with fairly mellow carbonation suites this beer well.

Overall this is wonderful enjoyed much more then their double IPA that many rave about. Wish I had ordered pint of the Freak and gotten the growler filled with this stuff. Will be getting a growler of this next time if its still on tap. 95 IBU according to the caulk board.

Serving type: on-tap

on tap at beer study in chapel hill, into a snifter.

pours a dark red with a nice two inch white head. smell is VERY hoppy , but with aromas typical of a red. taste holds true with a ton of hops but not so much that it overwhelms the flavor. really enjoyable. medium bodied, medium carbonation.

overall another winning IPA from wicked weed.

Serving type: on-tap
