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.

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?

fiulijn (14552) - 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.

yngwie (13558) - 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

bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bomber from Liquor Barn in Redding, CA. Pours brilliant copper with a foamy 3 finger (call it beige) head. Aroma of nicely roasted caramel with a lot of vinous and citrus aroma aspects. Full bodied, nearly. Flavor is roast caramel, but smoothly roasted, with a lot of hop. A lot of light stone fruit. A lot of vinosity. A lot of oak hints. This is pretty complex stuff. It is not NW harsh, but it seems to have as much hop as the biggest NW IPAs. Subtle in a way. Brash for sure. This is clearly a well thought out monster. Probably prevents cancer. Finishes brilliantly deliteful.
