SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Appeared a golden liquid with a slight bit of sediment haze while a foamy layer of head eventually broke down. Aroma is all hops along with a fruity smell that reminds me of the produce section of a grocery store or walking into a fruteria. The flavor is strong dosage of bitter hops that arenít as overpowering as most other Imperial IPAís aim for but instead has a moderate of citrus and pine like hops that have been rounded out perfectly with the malt, water and yeast used. Although this is not my favorite double IPA, I will have to admit that Hopocalypse is one of the smoothest drinking impy IPAís Iíve tasted considering their high IBUíS and ABV.

illidurit (2146) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Bomber poured into pint glass. Aroma and flavor both exude piney green hoppiness with a firm caramel malt background. This is well balanced with no off flavors but Iím just bored of this hop and malt combo.
