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".

New Zealand has nailed the West Coast IPA technique with this ale. Fresh, hoppy, delicious.

Poured from bottle, pale amber with medium creamy head. Aroma with tons of fruit, passion, kiwi, citrus and some pine. Taste nicely bitter with a light malt body and a loong bitter finish. Yum!

500ml bottle, pours clear gold with a white head. Kiwi fruit, passion fruit, pine, lovely intense punchy hop aroma over a light caramel base with a resiny texture. Light medium body with soft carbonation. Balanced and lightly bitter to finish. Best IPA so far this year!

I just got stuck with the smell. It was great. Looks, nice golden yellow. The taste was great with a long lasting and deep mouthfeel.

Great IPA, the NZ hops give a green twist to the usual west coast flavours.

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 (326) - 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.
