966. Wicked Weed – Pernicious IPA

We are spending spring break in a condo on the beach in Indian Shores, Florida. When we got down here, I picked up a bunch of local craft beers to try, mostly a bunch of IPAs. I know Wicked Weed sold out to AB-Inbev, but when I visited their brewery in Asheville, North Carolina, I thought they had some really good beers.

So, after dinner, I decided to crack open a beer I got a couple weekends ago when I helped with a fundraiser at Keg Grove Brewing Company. It’s called a...
