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".

500ml brown bottle. Gold and clear, white foam, pretty dense, a few fingers high. Nice clingy foam in the glass. Tropical NZ hops, hint of cat pee, grapefruit. Taste has grapefruity hops, tropical fruit hops. Finish is dryish with NZ hops lingering, lingering citrus peels, slight grassiness. Bitterness is present but not strong, and definately in the tropical fruit vein. Medium body, good carbonation. Enjoyable.

500ml bottle pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Medium hoppiness. Easygoing IPA.

Drucken ur pensmugg. Helt ok IPA om än något slätstruken. Fin och klar färg. Något besk.

Hopmaestro (298) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2015
Aroma is very focused towards the hops here, and it has a floral, almost perfumy smell. The taste is oriented towards carambola (star fruit), and a kind of dry and spruce-ish kinda taste. It also reminds me a bit of gooseberries (the green ones). It has a light body and it’s a bit different than all the other IPA’s out there. I don’t remember it being this light and dry, so it makes me wonder if they tweaked the recipe somehow? Anyways, it’s a good IPA

Flaska från SB. Kopparfärgad med tjockt vitt skum. Kryddig doft med lite blommighet. Brödig och jordig smak med en hel del humle.

Tried on tap at Fine Wine Delivery Company. Lovely golden appearance matched with a stunning floral aroma. Balance of citrus hops and bitter mouth feel support the thin texture. Another solid IPA from Epic.

Besk & tropisk! Dricker ur flaska denna gång. Fantastisk IPA detta. Lite gula frukter sådär. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle from New World Hokitika. Color description not possible here, but there’s a medium head. This IPA is strong on aroma hops as are many Epic beers, but this one is the most balanced so far. A bit less aggressive than the Hop Zombie. Dry, bitter finish.

@ Nedre Mölla 10/1-15. Bottle from Systembolaget. Hoppy with grapefruit, citrus and pine needles. Body is medium, the finish is dry, bitter and hoppy.
