And so it was written.......
According to Mayan and Hopi calendars the "transition from one world age to another" will happen on December 21, 2012. As an homage to the "transition" DC Brau has concocted an Imperial IPA named "On the Wings of Armageddon".

Bottle into my DC Brau tulip. "Bottled in 2012" Appearance: Pours a hazy but beautifully glowing orange with a one finger white head. sticky lacing and decent retention. Aroma: Fresh grapefruit citrusy hops. Taste: Lots of grapefruit citrusy hops Very fresh and tropical with some pine notes showing up. Dry biscuity malt, although there isn’t much to speak of. not complaining though. Plenty of flavor in this one. Not too complex. Excellently balanced. Flavors are so crisp and refreshing. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Perfect carbonation. Smooth and a fantastic bitter finish. Another fantastic brew from what is quickly becoming the best local brewery. Shout out to my man Chad for the hook up on this one. I love trying DC Brau’s beers.

Orange with a white head. Bright citrus and pine throughout with a good hunk of reserved sweet malt. The brightness is a welcome change from most DIPAs, which are usually a bit more resinous, IMO. This is real nice.

Cans from 2015. Stored in cellar and then chilled at 44. Nice head and wonderful aroma. Have had this before and as always one of the best Imperial IPAs I probably like this better than Ghandi Bot.

Can (12oz). Clear orange with white head. Light aroma. Taste some citrus and some pine. Good, but nothing special.

Can from tavour. Really dank hops on first impression. Very clean. In have to say that it’s fairly close to piney the elder. Nice orange zest and cat piss hops with some nice malts to robert ndnit out.

För Sverige ovanlig USA Dipa burk hittas såklart på Oliwer Twist. Enda Stället i Sverige (va jag vet åh jag hänger på många ölbarer) där man hittar sådana. Nu vill du väl veta "hu va den dåå?" Jo lätt rostfärgad klar dryck. Doftar tung inlands Dipa. Vad fan är det då? Jo Blött gräs, fallna höstäpplen . Oj i munnen krämig känsla . Tung malt med fin beska och druvig smak. Ja om du köper druvjos på Willys så fattar du. Blåa druvor. Värmer i munnen efter du svalt. Bra Dipa i klassisk inlands stil. För bättre betyg behövs tydligare humlearomer och mindre varm/alkohol efteråt. Om ölen varit kallare hade nog alkoholen som känns när du svalt tonats ner och ölen lyft i upplevelse och i mina siffror. Till slut lågt kolsyrad såklart det är ju en kvalitets öl.

June 12, 2015 - with blankboy, jercraigs and mabel - 355ml can. Cool can! Hazy bubbly orange with a tiny white head - and a ton of white sediment. Alcohol and sweet malt, quite bitter; straddles the BW/DIPA divide. Taste is big - citrusy malt and alcohol overpower what seem to be pretty faded hop bitterness - still decent. Thick, light carbonation, medium-length hot finish; would love to try it freshly tapped.

Can. Pours copper medium off white head. Great aroma of citrus and pine. Medium-high sweet taste. Medium body, refreshing sweet and medium bitter finish. Very good imperial ipa.

Draft. Citrus nose, with some herbalness and resin. Caramel on the palate balances out the heft of the hops. Good balance. Finishes a little wet.

suurjuust (3850) - ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2017 355ml can shared by Margus, thanks! Almost clear orange pour, small white head. Nose is fruity, oranges, malts and caramel. Flavor is sweet, fruity, hoppy. Finish is grapefruity bitterness and mild sweet malts. Lingering grapefruit bitterness. Very drinkable considering the ABV. Pretty nice.
