BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Wicked Weed Brewing
North Carolina, United States

Style: American 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.

Dank citrus pine with a lot of booziness to it. The body is pretty thick as well but the carbonation is pretty mild. Pretty good beer.

Very good IPA. Solid complex hoppy beer and at 8.5 abv it was all I could handle. Bought at my local liquor store in a four pack of bottles, that were almost a year old! Probably be even better if I could find some fresh!

From the bottle, it pours a nice golden color with a nice head that lasts and leaves lacing. in the nose, it is pine and citrus . In the mouth, heavily pine in the west coast style.
