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".

aroma is citrus with a light floral, the palate is amazing and is a beer that has to be sipped on. Overall this is one of the better double ipa’s I have had.

Can (12/27/13 batch) poured into a tulip style goblet. Pours a nice dark gold almost amber color with lots of tiny floaters and about a finger of off-white head, nice lacing. Aromas of citrus, dank, floral, pine/resin, light tropical fruit. Tasting notes of big grapefruit citrus, dank, pine/resin, floral and piney hops. Nice hop kick on the finish. Medium body with a bitter and semi-dry finish, juicy mouthfeel. Pretty smooth for the ABV.

Had this a day after it was canned and I don’t notice much change since then, holds up very well. Definitely my favorite from DC Brau and it ranks up there with Pliny and Heady in my opinion.

Aromas of piney and floral hops, with some redolence of tropical fruits, and subtle caramel malts. Appearance is orange with white head foam. Taste has very light malty sweetness, with hop freshness and bitterness in the forefront, but a very well-balanced beer that covers up the ABV very nicely. The palate is full-bodied with lively carbonation, and the finish is moderately long displaying piney and citrusy hops atop a nice malty backbone.

On tap at Carpool in Herndon, VA. Clear amber with large off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of peach, pineapple, orange, citrus and caramel. Lovely. Taste of pine, citrus, caramel, tropical fruit, grain and grass. Bitter but perfectly balanced and utterly delicious. Full/medium body and high/medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Several cans courtesy of Travlr @ Post Toer de Geuze tasting. Ultra fresh, about 3 weeks after canning. Orangée, col épais, crémeux beige, blanc-cassé. Arôme est houblonné, très frais, presque comme ouvrir un sac de houblon frais. Ça c’est une IPA comme je les aime. Houblon est généreux avec des notes fruitées, de sève en abondance. Palais est ici aussi, plein de houblons frais dans la lignée des Dale’s mais avec un houblonnage tellement présent. Amertume des houblons pour des notes herbacées et d’agrumes. Notes de pin pour un malté pas en reste mais qui laisse ample place aux houblons. Très frais, à voir comment le goût évolue avec un peu d’age, mais ici c’est une expérience en IPA formidable que on ne retrouve pas souvent dans les IPA Belges.

cans by travlr ( epic ! ) drank at : - rampkrot - alvinne - groezrock ( a belgian punk/ hardocre festival) pours yellow ( if poured, of course ) / orange . white foam smell is delicious ! hoppy , bitter, juicy . realy juicy taste. VERY nice, bitter. noit THE best IIPA, but one of the better ones i ever had. feel lucky to have tried this ( and have a great can for my metal-collection ! ) thanx gene! btw, as always, but hyere it seems even more extreme, the IIPA that this is, is best served realy cold, in my opinion. you taste less fruits if it warms up ( i do, anyway) .

Growler from local Whole Foods. Pours a clear deep golden amber with 2 fingers of foam that settle to leave a small amount of lacing. The aroma is dank: tropical fruit, malt, and a hop presence that reminds of me of diesel fuel. I mean this in the best way, the aroma is very inviting. The flavor is a revelation: a crushing blast of delightful hop bitterness assails the tongue leaving me wanting more. Citrus - more lemon than orange - overpowers the palate. Full bodied with ample residual sugar make for a palate-wrecking finish. Alcohol is nearly completely hidden. Always an event to have this - easily the best local DC beer I’ve had, and one of my favorite DIPAs.
