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".

Clear amber/yellowish color. Medium white head with small bubbles. Aroma of tropical fruits, grass, resin, bread, caramel. Fruity taste, caramel, bread. Finishes a little bit dry and bitter. Good balance between malt and hops. I thought this would be hoppier but since it has been shipped all the way from NZ it’s not very fresh.

Ambitionen är något i hästväg när ölet med namnet armageddon har alkoholhalten 6,66 procent. Ungefär där upphör också anledningarna till fascination. Det är genomgående en tråkig malt och stickande humle som dominerar smakbilden. Ja, nån form av armageddon är det ju faktiskt, men förmodligen inte den som varumärket vill signalera. Lyckan är att den är brygd så lång från Sverige att man troligtvis slipper exponeras för den igen.

Lots of pine and tropical fruit on the nose. More citrus, pine, resiny hops and pineapple on the palate. Pleasingly bitter. Well done.

Glorious. Strong pine & resin with a hint of fruit. The fruit really kicks in when you taste it - bananas and pineapple. Long and smooth bitterness

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2015
Bottle from Nacka Forum Systembolaget, 29/10/15. Pale ruby slicked and ringed with white. Vomit-streaked Southern Comfort aroma full of peachy caramel sweetness. Peach boiled sweet and iced tea rose water flavour on the wrong side of sweetness. Too much malt and peach.
