Notes/Commercial Description:
The Freak of Nature is our San Francisco inspired hoppy monster. At 8% abv and who knows how many ibu’s, this beer is our shrine to the Hop. Absurd amounts of the big West Coast hops gives this beer its citrusy, weedy nose and big, dank flavor. We dry hop with 48lbs per batch, which is over 3lbs of hops per barrel. In keeping with the classic style of the West Coast double, sugar plays a large part in creating this dry and minimally bitter double IPA. The Freak is particularly pintable for the style, so if you dare to enter, we welcome you to the Freak Show.

On tap at the brewpub in Asheville.
Pours clear with a light amber body and a very good head. Nice lacing.

This DIPA has a load of fruity hops in the nose. Pungent aroma.
Flavor: fruity but herbal and slightly dank hops dominate. Mild bitterness for style.
