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".

Bottle into my DC Brau tulip. "Bottled in 2012" Appearance: Pours a hazy but beautifully glowing orange with a one finger white head. sticky lacing and decent retention. Aroma: Fresh grapefruit citrusy hops. Taste: Lots of grapefruit citrusy hops Very fresh and tropical with some pine notes showing up. Dry biscuity malt, although there isn’t much to speak of. not complaining though. Plenty of flavor in this one. Not too complex. Excellently balanced. Flavors are so crisp and refreshing. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Perfect carbonation. Smooth and a fantastic bitter finish. Another fantastic brew from what is quickly becoming the best local brewery. Shout out to my man Chad for the hook up on this one. I love trying DC Brau’s beers.

Sample at SBWF 2014. Hoppy and fruity smell with a malty aroma that moves towards cookies. Similar taste, nice malt base that was sweet like cookies. Very nice DIPA.

Mad_Ferret (657) - SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2014
Can @ SBWF 2014. Hazy golden orange, nice thick head. Grapefruit, caramel, biscuit and pine aroma and same goes with the taste. Just enough sweetness, alcohol is fairly hidden, good bitter finish. It’s pretty simple and straight forward, but very well carved and tasty. Moreish.

From can @ sbwf14. Hazy amber, thin white head. Musty, fruity, caramel aroma. Flavor has tropical fruits, like Grapefruit, gooseberries, and some sweetish malt. Dry. Very bitter. This got everything an IIpa should have. Awesome. Just awesome.
