In the beginning, there was Armageddon. Then an impish brewer put the beer in new oak barrels to age it for 8 weeks. This was to reproduce the original IPA of the 18th century. It may be too huge for this fragile planet so enjoy this beer like it was the last one on Earth.

Bright gold color very clear,good head layer lasting with lacing. Very nice hoppy aroma alot of citrus with floral and spice some dankness but pretty clean and fresh and hoppy smelling. Taste has a basic light malt carmel sweetness some toast nicely hoppy tasting with some good wood oakness a bit of sour/tart towards the bittering finish. Pretty oaky, i like oak more in a maltier beer but this is fine.This is a really nice ipa.Overall its fantastic. Too bad its so pricey and hard to get for me.

Bottle. Hmmm, not sure about this one. Pours light amber. Big and oaky, with a VERY strong flavour of over-ripe oranges (I came up short of calling them rotting), but it was still strangely enticing. Definitely worth a try (even at the high price), but struggled to drink 500ml of it.

Pours with a fluffy, enduring head. Clear, more amber than copper in colour (as far as I could make out in the light). This beer is Armageddon plus barrel aging. There’s the signature huge hoppiness with Chardonnay butteriness, vanillin and sourdough. It smells rich and complex. To taste it is initially sharp with spice, Christmas cake allspice, cinnamn and butter. Lip-smackingly interesting and there seems to be a bit of chilli-heat as well. The wood character is dominant, but not overwhelming. Blue cheesey even. Tasted at 16-17 months old.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2012 Re-rate 15/01/12: After trying the new, fresh batch that has just hit Oz I am very disappointed. Extremely herbally and raw. Maybe a bit of time will do this good but right now it’s not tasting too flash. Very herbal and grassy with a real zing on the palate. Original rate 05/03/11: Surprised at the ratings for this one so far. Had this in bottle from The Royal, Melbourne from a young waiter who seemed to really know her stuff. Thank god we can finally get this stuff in Perth now. Loved the mouth feel on this one. Although the hops has been subdued somewhat from the oak ageing, it still has a great bitterness that allows this beer to be knocked back. Notes of apple and caramel malts come into play. Loved it

Unbelievably big and oaky... Coarse tannins and powerful vanilla, coconut and bourbony notes overpower malt and hop character.

To celebrate my rating number 19,300, I enter this beer from my fiancée’s native country. Bottled. An amber beer with a white head. The aroma is spicy and hoppy is it Sorachi Ace? it also has a note of fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, spices, caramel, and hops. The alcohol leaves a slight bite in the mouth.
