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".

UXO (136) - 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 (680) - 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 (526) - 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.

Peacehammer (617) - California, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours orange. Nice, fruity and semi earthy hop aroma. Spicy tropical fruit all over the palate, and a nice dry finish. Enjoyable.

Burgers (272) - 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.

Scopey (6292) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Keg at Six Des Abz. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is pine needles, orange peel, grapefruit, dough and orange sponge cake. The taste is bitter, piney, varnish, resin, light alcohol, varnish, citrus peel and metallic twang with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Decent IPA.

elbernays (407) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 19, 2014
500ml bottle from drinkstore. Pours cloudy amber with white foam head. Lemon, orange, peach, cabbage, dish water aroma. Strong caramel malt base with with mango and sharp bitter finish. Smooth mouthfeel, nearly the syrupy feel but not quite. Strong carbonation, a little too much. A solid IPA.

Lawger (83) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Quite fresh aromatics with apricots, iron and mango. Some flowers and citrus hints in the background. Decently flavourful and round in the mouth. The finish starts out freshly fruity and slightly sweet but transforms into a dry and dusty bitterness which is still rather restrained.
