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?

Steve_0 (2874) - 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.

Senap (389) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2013
Härligt grumlig. Förvånansvärt fruktig. Inte så besk som förväntat. Absolut värd att dricka.

Crille (85) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2013
Very cloudy amber/orange beer. The taste is full of bread, exotic fruits (mango) and lots of oak (almost oak aged). The finish is full of alcohol and some bitterness. Ok beer, but I it more complex.

rarbring (1548) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2013
Aroma: Toffee, mango marmalade, passion fruit, pine.
Appearance: A hazy amber colored beer. A high off-white head with good lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting brown bread, caramel, mango and oranges, pine resin and grape-fruit peel.
Palate: Medium low carbonation, small foamy bubbles, a soft and oily texture. A big body with a good dry finish.
Overall: A solid DIPA, no doubt about it.
Note: Bottle 355 ml. Reviewed 2013-06-16.

Bottled:
Pours deep amber with a slight haze. Thick head. Malty toffee aroma with notes of shampoo and hops. Sweet and malty toffee flavour with notes of dark berries and hops. Alcohol bitter finish. Perhaps not as fresh as it should’ve been.

dojken (247) - - JUN 14, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 Doften är som mest intensiv vid upphällningen för att sedan försvinna så sakta. Smaken är bra med en fin balanserad beska men ölen har inte riktigt det där man kan begära av en Imperial IPA.
