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".

phfyysik (648) - Tartu, ESTONIA - MAY 9, 2016
Pours clear amber with big off-white head. Very nice lookout. Aroma is very fresh, tons of tropical fruits, some sweet floral notes, honey, sour citrus, fresh pine, biscuit. Taste is soft spruce, pineapple, orange peel, sweet resin, creamy, sweet fruits, young pine. After taste is quite bitter, but sweet pine and tropical fruit notes will continue to the end. Excellent beer!
