COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale is a nod to the Northwestern states. Brewed to 6.6% abv and 45ibu this is a robust sunset red colored ale. The use of multiple varieties of crystal (aka. caramel) malts gives this ale a huge amount of malt depth. Malt flavors of toffee, caramel and sugarcane bring a sweetness to the large amount of hops used in this ale that is hard to achieve. This ale has a juicy fruit like hop flavor and a dank evergreen and grapefruity aroma. Recommended pairings, burgers, spicy food, vinegerette salad.

On tap at Hops Burger Bar. Sweet caramel malt and candi sugar. Pine hops on teh back end of the palate. Nice profile and balance. A hopped up amber/red ale. Nice, smooth and complex. Consistent quality from the WW guys.

Draft to taster at Wicked Weed. Looks solid; a transparent burnt orange with eggshell lacing. Smells solid too; a faitly bitter hop profile by style standards with an amber malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

Clear red. Big and hoppy. Very solid west coast style red ale. Bitter citrus. A bit dry.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2013
This poured an orange color with a white head. Aroma contains some oranges, caramel, and dark fruit. The flavor is both bitter and malty. Some bitterness from the citrus and a big dose of caramel and toffee in there also. Overall a nice rather big beer.

574deadzone (1057) - North Central, Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2013
On tap at Wicked Weed. Pours slightly hazy amber-orange with a thick, rocky beige head that leaves some thick lacing. Nose involves nice piney perfume, some caramel, lemon and orange zest, and spicy hop notes. Fairly sweet with a big bitterness and a light tartness. Light-medium body, pretty actively carbed, oily, vibrant, with a pungent hoppy bitter finish. Awesome brew, great malt-hop balance.

bubbleflubber (1832) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2013
On tap at the Wicked Weed, this pours a nice amber into the glass, with a soapy head that leaves soapy lacing. The nose is of spices, melons and citrus, with a hint of candied sweetness. Flavors of biscuit malt abound, with light bitters, some cherry and caramel. The ABV is wonderfully integrated, as the finish peppers the tongue lightly alongside piney bitter accents. This is a very nice red, super tasty, not too sweet, with a large body and substantive mouthfeel. Great winter warmer.

10 oz. pour at the brewpub. I’m telling you that Wicked Weed is my shit!! This amber ale, a style that normally doesn’t excite me, is delicious. The hops are a sticky, resinous herbal pine accent over the cleanly biscuity malts. There’s a bit of berry flavor as well. Finish is dank and simultaneously bready. It’s perfectly bittersweet. Awesome.
