BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Wicked Weed Brewing
North Carolina, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Poured nicely, with a dark "roasty" orange color. Smells great, mostly of some tropical fruits and lots of sweet resins. Taste is full on malty, syrup with strong notes of breadfruit, citrus, and papaya. Overall a great tasting beer that hides the gravity it boasts. Overall a great beer, but not my particular style. Regardless, highly recommended to anyone looking for a decadent DIPA!

Freak of Nature has a thin, ivory head, a mostly clear, orange appearance, with powdery sediment, and minimal lacing. Aroma is of resins & mango. Tatse is of sweet, white bread crust, mango, resins, and lots of strong bitterness. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Freak of Nature finishes medium dry. RJT
