COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alright, alright, alright… So you heard about the Armageddon. Didn’t happen. Not to worry though, there’s a new fiesta in the making. Solar Abyss. Party in your mouth. Lots of Mosaic hops. Everybody’s gonna be there. You should come. Piney, earthy, a little dank with that strawberry cough. Why don’t you ditch the geeks and get on board.......

Draft at Spacebar. Orange-gold with small white head. Citrus and floral hops, hints of lemongrass and pine. Dense and chewy. Aftertaste is pleasantly bitter without any faceslap or lingering dankness. This is good.

This is probably the best beer I’ve had from DC Brau. It’s pretty over the top. I’m so happy to hear that they plan to make more limited release and specialty brews. These are the types of beers that allow brewers and their breweries to shine. The dank aroma of pine, grapefruit, armpit stank, and citrus peel is pungent and in your face. The taste is not far behind with tons of juicy hops delivered by a rich malt body. Finish is bitter, sweet, lingers and yet changing... Overall, keep aiming for the stars you just might get there with solar...

Pours cloudy golden color with foamy white head. Aroma explodes out of the can as soon as it is cracked open. Huge Citrus and grapefruit , sweet pineapple and dank pine resin aroma. First sip of this brew and you are kicked in the teeth with huge citrus hops and citrus rind, followed by sweet ripe pineapple. Finishes with bitter grapefruit rind and pine resin. Excellent beer. Thanks to Maxbier for making this one possible.

Damico (2892) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Pours darker golden amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is so dank and delicious, bringing just a bit of armpit skunky that I love from the Mosaic Hops and then some malty white bitterness, almost like white grapes. The flavor brings big bitter hops, specifically herbs going on here with quite a bit of spice!

solidfunk (5256) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Good hoppy head, with lots of pine. Lots of caramel here too. Thick slightly syrupy consistency. Orange pour with OK head. Bittersweet finish, but mostly bitter. Good but not a lot of depth here, surprisingly. Armageddon much better.

12 oz can from Nimbleprop shared with Tmoney99. Pours a clear golden amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big, juicy citrus, orange, tangerine, some tropical fruit notes, resiny, earthy, caramel, toasted malts, the hops run this show, dank, moderate bitterness to the finish, this is a solid imperial ipa. Thanks Andy.

On draft at Whole Foods in Alexandria, VA. Served alongside On The Wings of Armageddon. The beer appears amber hued with a small, off-white head. Grandiose fresh hop aroma. This is a great showcase for Mosaic hops. Hop forward with a light, sourdough bread backing. Mild bitterness in the back. Big flavor and long lasting aftertaste. So fresh. This was definitely on the same level as OTWOA. Impressive.
