COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This triple IPA is brewed once a year and released during Asheville Beer Week. With 94 lbs of hops in only 11 barrels of beer, this exceeds the definition of a hoppy beer. We dry hop this beer here separate times with a blend of Centennial, Simcoe, Amarillo and Mosaic hops to create a tropical fruit explosion of deliciousness.

Dogbrick (9455) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Sample at the brewpub. Hazy dark golden color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, piney hops and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of floral hops, citrus and caramel malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

djd07 (6058) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Growler. Pours a hazy gold with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong floral hop, citrus, and pine. Medium mouth, nice fruity hop, light caramel malt, hides alcohol well, light bitterness, really enjoyed this one.

4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey for the Wicked Weed DC Debut event. Surprisingly, this was a bit more subtle than the Freak of Nature, the double IPA. Lots of booze, but smooth, not astringent. Sweet malt balance, pine resin is balanced out.

solidfunk (5312) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Imbalanced with the hoppy, astringent citrus peel end of things. Pours golden amber with ok head and lacing. Very astringent finish. Tap at Churchkey.

devman171 (1220) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2015
similar to Freak of nature, except way more onion, and the taste is way to much alcohol and bitter malt for me, more of a strong ale

drsordr (1547) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Draft at Wicked Weed pour slight hazy dark gold with minimal white head. Nose lots of good hop. Tropical citrus fruits, resin, and sweet malt. Taste moderate bitter up front, citrus hop and dank hop. Some caramel. Great mix of bitter and sweet. Syrupy mouth feel.

Cask in the basement at Wicked Weed. Hopped with Pacific Gem. Cloudy yellow. I’ve never seen such care by a bartender! Smells of hops and tangerines. Flavor is a palate bruiser. Huge hops. Big beer... (4181)
