According to Mayan and Hopi calendars the "transition from one world age to another" will happen on December 21, 2012. As an homage to the "transition" DC Brau has concocted an Imperial IPA named "On the Wings of Armageddon".

Can into snifter glass, cloudy ambery-golden color with light cream head. Aroma notes of strong dank tropical citrus hops, herbal, some pine and caramel malt. Taste adds fruity sweetness, grapefruit, resin, peach juice and some grass. Medium-heavy body, moderate-low carbonation, creamy, dry with lingering fruity bitter finish. Very nice IIPA, glad I finally grabbed some after all these years.

Carapils and malted wheat to carry the intense hop characteristic. Slight sweetness notes.

12oz can from the source, thanks to Marc! Canned 11/21/14 consumed 2/5/15. Pours a hazy orange amber, off white head. Aroma is full of caramely malt, mango, grapefruit, hop resin, booze. Flavor is sweet & fruity transitioning to bitter pine & grapefruit rind, lasting bitter finish with light booze. Creamy mouthfeel, full bodied DIPA. Overall, if this is what the brink of armageddon tastes like... it will certainly be a party.

The beer is a deep golden color, nearly amber. The liquid is somewhat cloudy, and there’s a fair bit of sediment. The head is medium to large and white in color. Lots of lacing. Good retention. The aroma is heavy on grapefruit, pineapple and orange. Medium strength malt character contributes a mix of caramel and bubblegum sweetness. Some booziness is evident. The taste starts out with some nice hop flavor on top of that sweet malt. A pleasant mix of pale malt sugariness and tropical fruit hops with a little peachiness. However, the the bitterness picks up quickly and things get somewhat bland. It’s just a bit heavy on the grapefruit rind and pine resin. Mild caramel. The beer finishes drier but the aftertaste is bitter without much in the way of delicacy. Mouthfeel is pretty light for the abv. A bit sticky at first. Carbonation seems a touch low. It’s a nice enough beer but doesn’t have the depth and complexity of some (D)IPAs.

From a can dated 01/07/2015. Aroma is very hop forward with a light cracker malt and slight caramel note in the background and hints of alcohol. Lots of citrus, especially grapefruit and orange. Lighter stone fruit and tropical fruit with some moderate hop resin and light pine to balance out the citrus and fruit. Pours a cloudy copper orange with a moderately sized, medium thick, slightly off-white head that shows good retention as it recedes to the edges where it lingers. Medium lacing and moderate legs. Flavor has a light sweetness with a hint of crackers and biscuits and a light caramel note. High bitterness with some alcohol spice in the finish. Lots of hop flavor, similar profile to the aroma, but the malt is a bit more noticeable. Citrus, tropical and stone fruit and resin. Slight stickiness in the finish, but fairly dry. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice IPA. Lots of hop aroma, but I think it could use a bit more in the flavor. I like that it isn’t too malty and the alcohol is fairly well hidden.
