Brewery: Garage Project
Country: New Zealand
Style: American Triple IPA
Other Notes: Double dry-hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Rakau hops
Brewer Description: (from can) A very special edition of a Garage favourite, celebrating ten years of our own wicked and Pernicious Weed. Brewed to be bigger, with double the synergistic dry hop hit of freestyle grown Nelson Sauvin and Rakau hops. More malt, more hops and even more mouth watering bitterness, juicy grapefruit and citrus flavour and ripe passion fruit aroma. Intense? Definitely. Too much? Never.

Intro: A 440ml can, with a best before date of 12th May 2022. Poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A very lightly hazy golden orange colour with a one finger white head that had decent retention, while leaving only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Pine, grass, herbal, malty, biscuit, toffee, with some light tropical fruity notes.
Taste: Sweet and bitter, piney, grass, grapefruit, malty, toffee hints, and a citrus pithy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: It’s perhaps ever so slightly better than the original Pernicious Weed, but at the same time, it’s a little sweet for my palate.
