Notes/Commercial Description:
In the beginning, there was nothing. Then an impish brewer piled a ludicrous amount of hops into a batch of beer. This zymurgical big bang is Epic Armageddon, an apocalyptic assault on your preconceptions and taste buds. It may be too huge for this fragile planet so enjoy this beer like it was the last one on Earth.

4.58/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - The clear amber lurks below a two finger head. A nice lace follows it down the glass.

S - Big hop nostril awakening aroma of pineapple, mango, grapefruit. Lovely.

T - Wow! Super hoppy but nothing harsh about it. Apparently has a 60 IBU rating (same as SN Torpedo) but has more smack to it if you ask me. The same tropical fruits abound, with apricot, pine and a slight nuttiness in the malt.

M - A moderate body with just the right carbonation levels. Slightly oily.

O - A super sharp turbo-hopped IPA. Possibly fresher than the American counterparts that Ive tried thus far but my favourite of the big and bold IPAs to this point.

bottled in may, so freshness was undoubtedly an issue here. light copper to honey colored ipa, frothy white head, and mostly clear. the nose is mostly bitterness in this one, with some resinous hops and a thicker malt body. the flavor must have faded a lot, because i get just a bit of hops, but more just stale grain and bitterness. the whole thing really doesn't have much flavor at all until the finish, which is pine and bitterness all the way, with a very full body. my problem with this, and a lot of beer from new zealand, is that by the time it gets here, its fading, and given that new zealand grows some amazing hops, its a let down in these hop forward brews that we never get them in their prime. this one falls into that category, and is probably so much better at the source. still, not a bad brew and worthy of a try.
