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".

djoeye (1855) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2014
Pours a clear golden beer with an off white head, many lacings. Aroma; smooth toffee malts, cheese, dried fruits, salty buttery notes, hints from paint. Taste; buttery hops, toffee malts, dry plum peels. Okay body. Finishes with caramel malts, wood, lingering and nice.

stoutnick (620) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2014
Caramel golden. Aroma is hops. Taste is lovely - bitterness and pine from the hops mixed with a caramel malt sweetness. Bitter finish. Lovely union of the hops and the malt. Good IPA.

beer-yum (599) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 25, 2014
Delicious Kiwi IPA that sets the benchmark for local brews of the style. Initial limited release was rightfully orders of magnitude oversubscribed and it has now become a year-round brew (much to the relief of beer lovers everywhere).

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2014
Flaske: Fin orange klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Desværre lidt gammel hvilket har trukket lidt ned, men viser tydeligt kvaliteten bag brygget. Duft af stale humle, citrus og mango. Smagen er maltsødme gange to. Ville gerne prøve den frisk.

Bottle from Systembolaget, Malmö in Tunderup. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Bitter with a light sweetness. Lots of sprucy hops aromas with some grape fruit. Also hints of grains and alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Soft carbonation. Dry finish. I would like to try a fresher sample.

MSBrindbergs (441) - Solna, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2014
Flaska från SB. Doftar mycket fint av humlen med citrus och tallbarrstoner. Klar bärnsten med ganska lite skum, fin men lite trist kanske. Mycket bra smak med en fin beska som dröjer sig kvar. En IPA som den ska vara.
