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 darkish gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy off white head. Awesome citrus, floral and tropical fruit nose, some toast, caramel and biscuit, but the hops really own the aroma. Flavor is tropical fruit, citrus and berry fruit, some spicy acidic hop bite, toast, biscuit, light, but sweet caramel, floral honey, a hint of lemon and bubble gum. Light to medium bodied with a creamy, oily feel until the somewhat dry, acidic hop dry finish. Fantastic, the best new (to me) IPA I have had in a long time.

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 (7854) - NUNEATON, TOP, 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.

Dahlstrom (61) - gasvetksgatan 3, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2015
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Golden coloured with a medium white head. Grasy and floral aroma. Taste is grassy and floral, with caramel. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Medium bitterness. A very well balanced beer.

slowrunner77 (7860) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 19, 2015
nice does of pine resin, citrus and floral hops. Also a little sweet and a little malty, but overall a very good IIPA that finishes bittersweet and piney.

Wischylini (210) - Grimstad, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2015
Pours clear golden, with a medium white head. The aromas are pine resin, and citrusy hops. The taste is dry and bitter, and the mouthfeel is thin. The aftertaste is moderately long. Unbalanced, uninspired, bland and boring; even for an IPA.

Pdubyah (552) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 28, 2015
Awesome, Love the level of bitterness balanced but the sweetness in the middle then that slightly bite at the finish - pause - repeat. Brilliant Florals and fruits, looks fantastic, really is a trend setter for hop forward IPA beers.

Re rated. An old favourite and better than ever this year. Looks as an IPA generally does. Nice Citrus, floral, pine and orange. Dominant Simcoe notes, great balance and pretty unique while still fitting style

PMgep (205) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2015
From old rating. The bottles that came to Sweden seems quite old, lots of the hops had disappeared. The problem with sending the beer halfway around the world and then get stuck at Systembolaget
