With passion and purpose, we present
this series of hop-centric beers. Using
different hop varieties and brewing
techniques, we aim to capture bold,
distinct hop characteristics in aroma,
flavor and finish. While we explore the
world of hops, we invite you to learn
along with us: these beers offer an
incredible opportunity to experience the
diversity of hops while engaging the
palate and obliterating the senses.
Obliteration I is a Double IPA, heavily
hopped with a big malt base. Its aroma
is pungent with citrus, onion, and a
touch of alcohol. The sweetness of
caramel malt is offset with spice and
pepper flavors that lead into an
overwhelmingly bitter finish

Bottle brought to me and shared with my brother. Clear light gold under a quickly fading medium white head. Big piney hop aroma with strong grapefruit notes as well. Medium body and carbonation, resinous. Quite bitter up front with some malty sweetness that takes the edge off, but it remains somewhat unbalanced in that regard, at least for my tastes. Still, it has its merits, and I would be interested in trying the more highly rated Obliteration II.

Pours a translucent golden amber with a medium bubbly off white head that left some lacing on the glass. Aroma was tons of hop pellets, loads of citrus, some grapefruit, light pine and caramel malt. Flavor of pine, grapefruit, loads of hop flavor, some caramel malt. Loads of hops with a bunch of malt to balance. Nicely done!
