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.

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?

SamTheBarrel (446) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 355ml bottle, poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass, cloudy deep amber with a medium sized beige head, that leaves a sticky residue on the glass. A strong and aggressive sharp aroma of hops, resin and pine. Just a little hint of fruit that is usually more prevalent in the aroma of IPA’s. Taste is similar to the aroma, very unbalanced and bitter, overwhelming hops. Medium body and carbonation. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this beer, too unbalanced and bitter for my taste.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle. Rusty amber with a tall, dense tan head. Aroma is hoppy with chewy caramel notes, citrus fruit, tropical fruit notes, sweet malt and berries. Taste is chewy caramel, sweet malt, tropical fruit, citrus oils, hop resins, floral notes, berries and herbal notes. Body is medium-full and rather chewy with a dense, bubbly carbonation. Lingering hop bitterness and oiliness throughout this. Fresh citrus and tropical fruit notes dominate the finish along with floral and herbal hops, big caramel, berries, dark bread and sweet malt.

Out of bottle. I’m hoping this is just an aging problem since this beer seems to not be very hoppy. Still a very good beer but nowhere near as hoppy as Hoptimum or Ruination.

Bottle. Pours a dark hazy orange body with a small white head. Nose is pine, syrupy grass tones, caramel, peaches, hints of grains and resin. Taste is resin, caramel, grains, raisins, hints of peaches and wet grass. Full body, soft carbonation. Classic no-fuzz American DIPA.

ansermadide (1520) - Kyle, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bold orange color, this has a bold hop aroma with a very pleasant doughy malt character. It’s very classy. The flavor is sweet, with hops of an almost indistinguishable variety. It’s spicy, full-bodied, and delivers a great hop bitterness and malt flavors, yet still somewhat thin-palated... sorta.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle. Glowing orange color with typical nice head. Wet hop flavors are present. Gritty powerful DIPA. a palate wrecker for sure.

uhclem (363) - 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.

Draught @ Napa Smith Brewpub, Napa, CA
Pours clear golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, grass, hop pellets and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter with a long warm, bitter, grassy and fruity finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
