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".

Marstonlad (407) - Helsinki, - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget, Uppsala. A clear golden color and a white head. Aroma is grassy and fruity. It has a notable hop profile that results in some interesting floral and exotic fruity notes. Taste is quite bitter but not brutally. Aromatic tropical fruitiness and the normal citrus flavour feature most. Medium body, slightly sticky texture. Bitter and very fruity IPA, a class act from New Zealand.

Clear and golden with a nice head. Hoppy, but also more caramely than it looks. Very good

Every time I drink this I forget how bloody good it is. Straight up hop explosion with hints of apricot, citrus biscuity caramel. Well done to my Kiwi brothers, love it.

UXO (164) - CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours a clear gold with two fingers of fluffy white head, excellent retention, and moderate sticky lacing. Nose is pine and citrus hops, slight floral, some crystal malt. Taste is piney and bitter, with only a little balancing sweetness. Mouth feel is smooth and slightly slick, with a dry finish. Not the massive smack in the gob I was expecting from the description in the bottle, but enthusiastic, regardless. The hops integrate nicely in the aroma and flavour, and the malt is just sufficient to support the hops without being excessively sweet. The "beastly" ABV is a cute touch, but it’s completely absent from both the aroma and flavour, and this beer could easily have carried off a higher ABV.

fantti (687) - FINLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja kirkkaana, parin sormen vaahto jättää hyvää pitsiä lasin reunalle. Tuoksu painottuu havumetsän pihkaisuuden ja havuisuuden ympärille karamellin ja lievän trooppisen hedelmäisyyden tukiessa. Maku on enemmän hedelmäinen (ananas ja päärynä ainakin tuntuu), varsinkin alussa, jonka jälkeen havuisuus ja pihkaisuus sekä karamelli tulevat mukaan. Suutuntuma on melko katkera ja tasaisen puraiseva. Alku on makea ja se kuivuu vahvasti loppua kohden. Hyvä IPA, jonka katkero voisi puraista himpun verran enemmän, mutta se saattaa johtua matkastakin. Havuisemman puoleinen IPA.

zimbo (553) - SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Easy pour shows a faded flat orange and a big billowing head. Great delicious South Pacific hop nose. Beautifully juicy and supple in the mouth with huge core strength which pushes out nicely from the centre and keeps everything very well structured throughout the entire glass. Balanced and deep. Well named.

Pours orange. Nice, fruity and semi earthy hop aroma. Spicy tropical fruit all over the palate, and a nice dry finish. Enjoyable.

Burgers (304) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Pale gold with fair white head that soon collapses. Aromas predominantly hops but also stone fruit and some fruit blossom. Taste quite sharp sourness tempered by some sweetness. Dying carbonation. Fairly thick mouthfeel. Much better than I expected.
