Axes of Evil
Gigantic Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
Three Floyds makes one of the most famous and sought after Pale Ales in the world -- the legendary Zombie Dust. One of the only places you can taste their Pale Ale skill is in today’s collaboration. They combine forces with Gigantic Brewing’s jack-of-all-trades versatility to construct one of the top rated British Pale Ales of all time -- The Axes of Evil.
Axes of Evil ranks one of the best of its kind: #3 in the world on RateBeer and #12 on BeerAdvocate for how it uses two New Zealand hops in an intensified twist on the British Pale.
Motueka Hops give it a splash of rustic hay while extensive hopping with Pacific Jade gives it a distinct peppery kind of citrus. Imported Maris Otter and Simpson Malts round it out with authentic nutty depth found in the finest brews of the Isles.
Orange pulp and toffee resin rise in a steady aromatic geyser. Full biscuity whole wheat malts provide a pleasing and fortifying blanket of hearty grain. Peppery papaya and grapefruit merge with leafy hop floral notes. Three Floyds’ experience is clear in how each ingredient pops with more clarity and intensity than in many British-made Pales. Creamy caramels glide into an oaky resin finish.
Gigantic is notorious for brewing some of the best beers in the world, but only makes them once. For their fifth year anniversary, Gigantic is revisiting their biggest hits. The third limited release beer they ever made, Axes of Evil has long stood as one of their top-rated beers we’ve been longingly staring at on top of the charts.
#3rd on RateBeer, #12th Best BPA on BeerAdvocate!
