COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The arrival of hops to the brewing scene in England in the 1500’s led to a moral panic. Hops were condemned as a “wicked and pernicious weed”, one which would lead to the erosion of social and moral standards. Thank goodness they were right. Here’s hoping that our homage to the original pernicious weed continues this gradual decline. Organic Rakau and whole cone Nelson Sauvin go head to head in this strong, golden, hoppy brew. Bitter, yes. Intensely hoppy, absolutely. Too much, never.

ANZUShophunter (721) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2018 On tap at Tippler’s Tap. Faintly hazy yellow with nice white head. Quite well balanced between malt and hop with some nice herbal undertones in the finish, which is almost dry by DIPA standards

jmgreenuk (10520) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 30, 2018
Tap at Beermash, Melbourne. Poured a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, big weedy resin hop citrus. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a dry grainy malt, warm alcoholic woody resin hop bitter palate palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

cobaink2 (867) - seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2018 22oz from Tavour. So many good things coming out of this. Melon, peach and apricots. The body has a bit of buscuit and cracker flavors but quite thick. Seems a bit more abv than the 8 percent listed.

3.5
RuneStumo (2739) - Haugesund, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2017
25.12.2017. 0,65l Bottle. Vinmonopolet Oasen. Orange colour with a thin white head. Unclear. Citrus aroma. Sharp with looots of hops. Sharp beer with very good strength and with a very rich body. More hops than malt and lots of alcohol. Texture is kind of oily. Notes of fresh wood, pine and green birch leaves. Bitter sharp ending.

3.3
BlackHaddock (8082) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2017
15th Dec 2017, five beers on draft from this brewery at the Stadium Brewing Company, Aliso Viejo, California, I had all five. Misty amber body, white head. Tropical fruits rule the roost here with a heavy hop presence giving a decent bitter taste and aftertaste.

[email protected]�t, nyk�ping. Hazy amber color with lacing off-white head. Aroma has tropical fruits, citrus, malt, caramel. Taste is malty with long bitter aftertaste. Flavors of pine, needles, tropical fruits. Not so fresh one.

thatjester (7) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 29, 2017 does not count
Poured from a 330ml can. Both the fruity aromas and taste, along with intense hop and lingering mouthfeel really make this the best DIPA I ever had the pleasure of tasting. If you like intense, hoppy IIPA's, you are doing yourself a disservice to ignore this incredibly offering from Garage Project, one of the most incredible craft breweries I've encountered, putting plenty of Aussie brewers to shame. This skyrockets to the favourites list!

elgen (1) - NORWAY - SEP 29, 2017 does not count
29/9-17 - Pernicious Weed, Garage Project, hordan i huleste kommer man på ett slikt navn på en øl? ganske mye pfst, når korken går, den har en tåkete orange farge og ett skum som varer lenge, skikkelig lenge, det dufter av tropisk juice, men saker noe helt annet, humle grapefrukt, karamell, litt mye bitter. Rapen kommer som et hagleskudd, nesten før øllen når halsen. det smaker lenge, smaken sitter i lenge etter at rapen har buldret seg ferdig. blir faktisk bedre og bedre jo lenger ner i glasset jeg kommer, eller er det pizza'n som er ekstra sterk i dag?

drjoeng (1481) - SINGAPORE - SEP 15, 2017
8%ABV. Double IPA. Poured out amber. 14 SRM. Nose has weedy funk on first approach with elements of dirty sock. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has toasted honey graham cracker, wild honey. Hop flavors are grapefruit peel, pine sap, resin. Goes on Favorites List!

3.4
SinH4 (6896) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2017
Tap. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is fresh grapes, kiwi, grassy, very nice! Taste is farty, kiwi again, caramel, toffee, not as great as the aroma. High carbonation, fruity finish. Not bad, but too farty in flavour.
