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.

3.48/5  rDev -13.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance:
Lightly hazed, golden colored body lays beneath a thick, porous bone-white head. Retention, lacing, and carbonation trails are light.

Aroma:
Did someone just set up a Christmas tree in here? Hoppy pine, pine, pine, and more pine. Pine-cone, dry grass and tree bark, and light spicing. Perhaps a bit of sawdust - smells dry.

Taste:
Similar to the aroma - piney. Bitterness is potent and hits you right away and leaves your tongue tingling for the entire sip. Very earthy quality to the hop profile with a bit of oak. A slight sweet spike on the finish gives you a hint of tropical fruit, but is quickly subdued by bitterness while screaming "uncle!"

Mouthfeel:
Done dry. I typically don't mind a dry IPA, but I don't like being more thirsty at the end of a glass than I was before I started - seems counter productive. Body is pretty light and carbonation is spot on. Bite is nearly perfect as well - potent without knocking you off your feet. Adjusting the finish would help this one tremendously.

Overall:
A solid IPA, but far too dry for my liking. With a few changes, in my opinion this would be a force to be reckoned with.
