And so it was written.......
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 from JMaxwell. Pours a dull, hazy goldish orange hue with a nice thick white head. Very sweet melony and mango aroma. Love it! Taste of citrus, zest, melon, mango, very tropical fruit forward DIPA with just enough hop bitterness. Definitely oily on the palate/mouthfeel. Finish is sweet and citrusy. In my mind, the DIPAs that I live to try and try again and again. Nice work DC Brau. I'm stuck between this and Surly Abrasive. I think I need to drink them both again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber colored clear pour with good lacing. Aroma is candied orange peel, orange glow cleaner, and some dank weed. Taste is harsh bitter and caramel sweet. This thing is so 2008 it hurts.

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.
