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?

For having 144 IBUs this actually wasn’t as much of a hop bomb as I was expecting; I guess the wine barrel aging takes away some of the bitterness? The flavors and aromas are nice and citrusy but a little one dimensional. Not much malt presence to balance the hop bitterness. Overall though this was pretty good, however.

Deep caramel orange in color... Aroma is sticky wet citrus hops, caramel malts... Flavor is really pleasant, malt forward with citrus notes, light bitterness throughout... Finish is incredibly smooth, vanilla and oak on the palate... Great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bubbleflubber (1774) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Gorgeous here! Pours a murky brown-amber into the glass, with a light ring head that leaves sudsy lacing. The nose is of sweet, sweet caramel candies. Flavors carry forth this caramel sweetness, with added fresh hops, dried apricots, pine resin and light bourbon that finish with a lingering bold bitterness. This is very complex and substantive, with a full body, candied mouthfeel, light carbonation activity and smooth drinkability for the ABV and IBU’s in play. Wonderful Impy IPA here!

12 ounce bottle pours a golden orange color with minimal head. Pine and resinous aroma with some sweet smell also. Seems extremely bitter just for the sake of being bitter. Very harsh aftertaste. Unpleasant.
