BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Wicked Weed Brewing
North Carolina, United States
wickedweedbrewing.com

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.

Appearance: Golden/amber with lite haze
Aroma: Hops with a malt untone.
Taste: Hoppy and slightly harsh. Ive had it before when it wasn't quite as aggressive
Overall: Still enjoy it, but it seems a bit more aggressive than last time I had it.
