COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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".

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated slightly hazy yellow orange colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was floral and malt hop. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mild caramel floral hops and bread dough. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Pour from a can is a nice hazy amber with a white head. Aroma is floral with subtle hints of pine. Taste is sweet at first followed by a slight bitterness followed by a dry and bitter after taste. Goes down with a sweetness and slight but leaves a dry pine after taste.

Hair6a11 (1419) - Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2015
Can : Pour is murky gold, with a one fingered white head into this glass. It retains fairly well, with sticky lacing presence here - This batch has a nice feeling overall - This rich, dank IPA has a heavy dose of tropicals on the nose. Honey and caramel, pine and grassy hops.... its really nice , honestly. The flavor profile has a very nice malt backbone with a healthy dose of sweet for the style. Carmel Honey, light bready malts - with floral and piney hop notes inter mixed with a top notch tropical mango / grapefruit hop profile here. It’s just a nice one for sure

nellycale (211) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2015
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

Mmmm. Pours Amber orange with a small white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and fruit. Slick in the mouth with a nice hop bite.

Reynolds314 (2728) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 23, 2015
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.

radio_nowhere (1029) - Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2015
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.
