Majek (809) - Ząbki, POLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Hazy, yellow-orange colour with medium head and nice lacing. Very intensive and long lasting aroma of citrus and exotic fruits (lots of grapefruit, mango, peaches), some floral and piney notes. Awesome in aroma! Taste is medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter with long balanced finish. Full body. Aboslutely fantastic imperial IPA, perfectly balanced and highly drinkable.

jc1762 (1147) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Into a tulip showing a well filtered amber with no head. The nose shows a lot of intense dry pine and cannabis. The palate shows a lot of the same flavors with a very sharp and cutting pine. Light bodied, well carbonated, and a moderate bitterness.

HuskerTan (2041) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - SEP 30, 2015
(Thanks, Gene! "Travlr") Can. A- Juicy, citrus, caramel, bitter, malty. A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, tan head. T- Citrus, bready, caramel, malty, bitter, juicy, balanced, chewy. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- Not knowing a lot about this beer going into it I imagined a very bitter and aggressive IPA. I was wrong in the best way possible. Very balanced with a nice citrus, bitter, malty combination. Didnt like the yeast floating around in there but that can be overlooked.

pineypower (3212) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - SEP 24, 2015
More backlog. Can. Pours out a nice copper color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of lots of juicy citrus, bitter caramel hard candy, some pine and sweet alcohol. Taste is like a hop infused caramel candy, nice balance with some pine, citrus and mild tell of the alcohol. Solid, well balanced, but leaning a little too far to the malty side to be world class in my book.

A badass name and a badass can do not necessarily make for a badass beer. Although On the Wings of Armageddon has both, nothing can compare to awesomeness lurking inside the aluminium. This Imperial IPA pours a hazy orange with a modest, even head. Aroma has tropical hops and an impressive malt bill. The latter element is crucial. You need a lot of malt to keep 115 IBUs from being crushing. It works remarkably well. Yes, this brew is resinous and crisp. However, you get far more than just bitterness. Grass, sticky nectar, tropical fruit - all in big portions. Finish is super dry with lingering sweetness. For an extra jolt of apocalyptic chaos, I paired On the Wings of Armageddon with Napalm Deaths "On the Brink of Extinction." Highly recommended.
