Pernicious India Pale Ale
So Asheville's Wicked Weed Brewing recently started sending some beers to South Florida. Problem is most of them are little wine bottles of sours in the $9 to $17 price range. That's not happening! So I grabbed a can of the one oddball selection Pernicious India Pale Ale.
This beer won Silver at GABF a few years ago. There's a little story to set your expectations. Nice can artwork! PKG 020619 Drink 022319 7.3% alcohol. Gotta get my ass to Asheville!
Nice citrus aroma, tangy orange and a hint of tropical fruits. Bright, sharp tangerine flavors come first. Tangy. Nicely bitter, full of juicy citrus. Like the aroma, hints of tropical mango come through.
A little spicy, peppery, definitely taking a swing at your palate. Very flavorful. Nice beer!
