COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

IMPERIAL BARREL-AGED IPA aged and excessively wet-hopped in Chardonnay & Cabernet barrels.
Hops: Chinook, Cascade, Warrior, Columbus, Mt. Hood, and Centennial
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?

uhclem (360) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Nice hazy orange pour with an off-white head. Nose is primarily pine, citrus and malt, with fruity undertones. Taste is a melange - pine at the tip of the tongue, grass in the middle and malt at the end. There is a presence of alcohol throughout, but it is mostly controlled. Finish is subtle at first, but grows slowly into a cascade of hops that goes on and on. The alcohol is not as well-hidden as it is in some other DIPA’s, but in this case that is not a bad thing.

yngwie (13209) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Cute light beige curtains, dense finger thick head. Lots of resiny, piney hops on the nose, quite sweetish. Sweet on the palate too, but with all this hops it needs sweetness. Full body, smooth on the palate. Doesn’t feel as bitter as the 144 IBU should indicate. A bit over the top, but nice. 130807

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
Best before Apr 2014
Hazy amber color with small sized compact head. The aroma is initially earthy, followed by quick hop resins, then some cheese and metal. Good body strength, still it has a good drinkability for this gravity; caramel and toffee flavor, moderately sweet, with very strong bitterness; the hop is very resiny but also still fruity.
Not extra fresh, but very enjoyable.
