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".

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 (156) - 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

Prufrockstar (1528) - 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.
