COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by west Coast IPA’s on a trip to San Diego for the World Beer Cup and a part of an IPA showdown with Hallertau Brewery . Only 1000 litres of this insane hop joy have been created. The rumour has started that Epic Armageddon IPA is "the sole reason there is a global hop shortage".

was afraid this was not going to be still good, nice floral and some resin on the nose.kinda golden color. thin white head. flavor is a touch old but the hops still come off pretty good and i think this would be dynamite on tap.

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Bottle from EZ liquors. Pours out a nice clear copper color with a small white head. Aroma is sweet with some caramel and light floral notes. Taste is some light hop, citrus rind, some floral notes and a light kick of alcohol on the finish. Average.

This is living proof that a cool name and unlimited access to hops doesn’t automatically make a good beer. This puts me off trying other Epic styles...

Enorm doft av tropisk frukt, nyslaget gräs, färska granskott. Ganska fyllig kropp med väl avvägd sötma, den tropiska frukten kommer först, sedan tar gran/tall-tonerna över för att gå över i avstämd, men ganska snäll beska som släpper fram frukten igen. Ingen tuff IPA, men mycket smakrik och välbalanserad. Min favorit av årets IPor hittills.

Very nice IPA. One of the best IPAs Ive had from outside the US. Aroma and taste are of nice floral hops with light notes of citrus and tropical fruits. Dominantly floral with a crisp dry finish.

That1Guy (1882) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Oxidized bomber. Aroma of pine, pineapple, and metal. A bit of grapefruit in the flavor, then more pineapple and metal. Bummer. Still drinkable, though. Will rerate when I try it fresh.

Bottle. Pours clear gold. Fluffy white head. Nose/taste of caramel and bready malts, nectarine and pineapple. Finishes dry with some herbal hops. Medium body.

Hoppy with a piney/citrus aroma and taste. Enjoyable beer, however it is overpriced!!

Floral and piney ipa. Not the hops I wouldve chosen but they executed them very well. Very crisp and very well made.
