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?

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy brown color with a smallish white head on it. Nose is quite hop forward with some very bitter resiny hops dominating and making for a very bitter aroma. Taste is also decently bitter, though it tastes a little old, like the hops have turned a bit. Decent, but seems a little too aged.

(Bottle). I must start by saying: Fuck Napa Smith’s commercial description! Certainly this is a good beer ..! but not like their description. The hops are prominent, but not extreme, they have a nice mellow tone that fits well with the malt flavor. Bitterness is soft and subdued, in a very nice way. This is not an extreme hop bomb, but rather a well-balanced IPA. The taste is sweet malt with hints of caramel, overripe fruit and figs mixed with hops. The aftertaste is a bit oily bitterness. What I really like about this beer is the subdued tone in both the smell and the taste!

Steve_0 (2532) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle at Epic Beer Festival 2013. Pour is clear orange with a small cream-colored head and decent lacing. Caramelly, grapefruity, orange, a touch of citrus, bready and biscuity aroma. Somewhat stale hoppy, grapefruity, caramel, bready, and grass with a heavy bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not really my type of DIPA.
