Hi-Wire Man Eater, the Asheville, North Carolina based brewery’s popular imperial IPA returns this month for just the second time in cans.
The hop headliners in this release are Amarillo and Citra. Hopped at a rate of 3.5 pounds per barrel, this beer is full of citrus, floral notes, and spice. In abundance, we might add. You love bold imperial IPAs then but Hi-Wire Man Eater on your must-have list.
Each sip starts with orange zest flavors that turn to a lingering floral finish with a touch of warming alcohol heat. Very bright, very spring-like. Just sit back, relax, and crank up some Hall & Oates.
Hi-Wire Man Eater is already available on draft and in 16-ounce cans in both of the brewery’s taprooms the second week of May. Limited distribution to follow shortly after.
