Back Label: Hopageddon is an end-of-the-world Imperial IPA with an intensely aromatic hop profile that defies expectations and will leave you wondering, "What just happened?" at 144 IBUs, Hopageddon flows with a gorgeous fiery orange color and showcases a distinct, full white head. The unique flavors from our obscenely extend dry-hopping and shockwave of bitterness lingers on the palate and leaves hopheads with a Post-ahopalyptic yearning for more.

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?

olsvammel (6293) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2012
Sample at ÖÖWF 2012. Smell of fruity hops. Similar taste with a strong bitterness. Lots of hops overall. I didn’t recognize the typical Napa house flavours. Very nice, one of the breweries better beers.

Chalky malt on nose (good) with good hop aromatics and only modest bitterness. Good, would recommend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours a cloudy amber with minimal head. Not too many bubbles. Aroma is a stale malt smell. Drinking, however, does not taste stale at all. Some hop bitterness and some florals, but not the hoppiest.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2012
(Bottle) Pours dark orange copper red with a sand-coloured head. The aroma holds woodsy, resinous and citric hops alongside sticky caramelly, nuttyand light grainy malt. Light oxidation, syrup and green apples. The flavour is light to medium sweet, near heavily bitter and light acidic with notes of sticky malt and aggressive/sticky hops. The mouthfeel is syrupy and round with a light carbonation. Lingering resinous woodsy and citric bitterness. Medium to full bodied.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a sort of matte gold mostly clear body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sort of pine and citrus hops and then a little bit of spicy oak around the edges with wafer thin rings of thick malt sweetness even further out on the periphery. The taste is a nice burst of citrus and tangelo and some pine and then some oak spiciness. It then fades into malt flavor and a little bit of sweetness as it heads into the after taste. This is pretty darn good and my favorite so far from this brewery.

PorterPounder (7425) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 22 oz bomber. Murky dark orange pour, nice sticky off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Floral accented aroma with some sweet papaya-like fruity notes, a hint of excess crystal malt. Flavor is syrupy and sweet, a little too malty for an IIPA. Some brief bittersweet grapefruit notes, a bit of caramel, maple syrup finish. Sticky mouthfeel....but not in a good way. A little too much of everything.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - OCT 5, 2012
22oz bottle. Great label, shooting stars of hops. Aroma of hops, mmm good. Sweet caramel malt backbone. Deep orange color, thin white head. Oily textured, heavy bodied. Whoa, loads of hops. Huge resin, fruity florals, big C-note flavor, some citrus, pine hops. Rich malt body, well made, to carry all of these hops. Very nice, big American IIPA. It’s a huge beer. (3480)

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 Boy this tastes d e l i c i o u s. Bitter and sweet is what I look for in an IPA. They could go in a lot of other directions with this tweaking it toward Belgium styles.
