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.

Killer beer that really shows NZ to be in the forefront of hoppy beers which is a change from the way they brewed 5-10 years ago. The hops come off the nose with mighty aplomb and the taste is sheer hoppiness with a solid malt backbone. This beer is very drinkable and yet shows some complexity as it opens up. Not many North American IPAs match this beer for both quality and hoppiness.

A - clear golden/copper, thumb of white head settled at half a finger with bubbles rising from the bottom
S - citrus and fresh greens, bubble gum, mild florals and grains
T - leafy greens and bubble gum flavours prominent up front, followed by a floral bouquet, light multi grain cracker maltiness, finishes clean
M - light body with pleasant carbonation, crisp and clean with light bitterness and medium dry finish
O - pleasant and refreshing IPA with a nice mellow mix of hop flavours but retains and nice balance, well worth seeking out ... plus the ABV is the number of the beast!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Full tight white head billowing up 2 fingers and leaving plenty sudsy lacing. A rich gold clear ale that shows just a few lazy streams of bubbles slowly raising...sunshine in a glass.

S: fresh floral and citrus rind chased by sweet malts. A nose full of sweet floral fragrance reminiscent of amber perfume, with notes of sweet caramel and musky woods. Amazing smell - if it was bottled I'd wear it as perfume, happily.

T:Front notes of bitters, grapefruit rind with pine and fresh cut grass. Malty notes on the back end that balance bitters out to allow the bitters shine through brightly and balanced with malty richness.

M: Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. The alcohol esters help spread the floral and citrus bitters around the entire mouth

O: Wonderful balance between bitters and malts that allows the fresh floral scent and flavour to shine through. The floral presence and sweet caramel is intoxicating and alluring, much like perfume - delicate with warm notes underneath - expertly balanced to draw the drinker in.
