You can pray to the Hop Gods all you want… You’ll never find another beer like this one. Hopageddon is an end-of-the-world Imperial IPA that defies expectations and induces an intense hop-stupor that will leave you wondering what just happened. At 144 IBUs, Hopageddon glows with a gorgeous fiery orange color and showcases a distinct, full white head. The added character given by the Chardonnay and Cabernet barrels accentuates explosive papaya and lychee flavors along with herbaceous aromas. Chewy, grassy wet-hop flavors, hints of dried apricot, and impressions of barrel tannins are evident in multiple layers. The distinct Barrel- Hopped flavors and shockwave of bitterness lingers on the palate and leaves hopheads with a Post-ahopalypticTM yearning for more. Can you survive the Hopageddon?

Sampled on 4/20/2012. This Imperial India Pale Ale pours a medium to dark orange/copper gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel and sweet, touch of wood and chardonnay. A medium to full bodied Imperial India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity, caramel and sweet. The hops are herbal, citrusy and floral. Decent carbonation. Touch of wood, some chardonnay and cabernet. An interesting blend of flavors, nice malts and good hop flavor. Nice smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

650 ml. Copper with a lasting quarter inch of sugary foam, and lace all over the glass. Smells of pineapple, grapefruit, resin and earthy molasses. Big flavors of toffee, mango. grapefruit, apricot, tea leaf and orange are tamed by a lingering finish of mint, evergreen resin and oak. Medium-heavy body is velvety smooth, has just a touch of alcohol warmth, and has nice balance. Dangerously drinkable.

this beer yet hoppy has a sweet almost apple like aroma. Hostessing is 1 of my favorite hoppy beers due to its smooth light rich flavor.

Too sweet and the aroma is pretty weak. Not very good but drinkable I guess. Wouldn't drink it again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mmmm. A really hopped brew that lets me know that summer is here. Really quality brew with a really high IBU count. Great hops, great brew.
