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".

Plenty of big hop aroma and flavour with this beer. It really packs a hoppy punch. Has a very pale colour and is lovely and crisp and dry in the finish which balance well with the hop flavour and bitterness.

Bought in New Orleans at Steins Deli .. . Pours a deep yellow gold .. very good head, medium lacing .. . surely he’s not talking about vh1?? .. . good friendly hop presence, light honey and sap .. . pretty good stuff but at $10 a 500ml bottle, no way good enough for a repeat- still happy to have tried it though .. . . featuring professor gas can!!!

From the bottle at Churchkey. Served in a stange. Pours a golden-peach color with a good white head and some nice lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward some very nice tropical fruit character and a bit of citrus. The flavor is lightly-malty and has some faint tropical character. Nothing too over the top. Light body with good carbonation and moderate bitterness. Well done.

500 ml bottle shared by EZAnt. Poured a good looking body of crystal clear burnt orange with some large clinging bubbles under an ugly small soapy white head. Aroma shows what the trip to the US can do to an IPA. Notes of caramel, citrus, lemon and flowers but it’s not crisp nor fresh. Body is very dry but coats your entire mouth and has a light bitter finish. Flavor of honey, citrus, wax, and honey topped bread. This is interesting and probably really good when fresh.

500 mL bottle. The aroma is fantastic. They must have used mounds of aroma (and flavour) hops. It’s not terribly bitter, though, but perhaps that is why this one is so drinkable. Lots of floral and citrus flavour and aroma. The malt profile is subtle but effective. Great beer.

Bottle 6/9-11. Aroma is hoppy with citrus, apricot, resin and caramel. Dark amber color w small offw head. Taste of hoppy bitterness throughout, w apricots, resin and sweet caramel. Medium body. Found it behind some other bottles, should have had it a long time ago. Still very very good though. This is the way I want my IPAs!

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.

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.
