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.......

Huhzubendah (2629) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2014
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.

nimbleprop (5017) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 2, 2014
32oz growler I picked up at the brewery. Pours a hazy, dark orange with some thin, lacing white head. Nose is classic DIPA, big punchy citrus, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, some stone fruit, grass, lightly herbal, perfume, malt, honey. Flavor has more punchy herbs than the nose, garlic shoots, chive, ramps, a nice complimentary sweetness, tangerine, grapeefruit, a little sticky nectarine, honey. Full bodied, lightly sweet, bitter finish. Really nice. As good as Wings, in my opinion.

thekai (6) - - MAR 2, 2014 does not count
A: enticing hop tones Ap: looks like OTWOA T: body of OTWOA but bitter and unbalanced P: smooth initial palate with notes of strawberry and mango. Hint of citrus O: good looking smelling and tasting until you get punched in the mouth with that slighlty unbalanced hop action. Aerating while drinking improves earthy tones. A little tweak and this could be a go to just like OTWOA
