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".

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.

Prufrockstar (1468) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2015
[5/29 tasting, from notes]. Thanks to Andrew for this. Clear pale pour, with caramel and surprisingly some roast (reminds me of a coffee IPA) and stone-ground mustard. Medium body, average carbonation. Assertively bitter.

22 oz bottle brought and shared at a tasting. Thanks Dad for picking this one up for me. Pours a clear copper color with a big bubbly head. Slightly stale hop, grassy aroma. Nice hop forward flavor. Soft lemon throughout. Very English IPA like in my opinion. Good citrus character. Overall, a decent IPA.

Aroma: exotic fruits, floral hops, some grass and straw. Appearance: clear gold, medium, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters continue, grass, light resin, exotic fruits lingering in he background and getting more intense, dry finish. Overall: excellent IPA, very nice, fruity palate.

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.
