Notes/Commercial Description:
Hops have taken over the world. Permeated the senses of the minions. Hop Zombies now roam the streets. Lupulin ichor oozing from ravaged legions. Gorging, gouging, masticating. Salivating over insane hop flavours and aromas. The time is nigh. No more festering away in hopless oblivion. Join the HopZombie Revolution.

Released today, 1 march 2014, at Systembolaget, Sweden.

Clear, golden liquid with a white, two finger, head.

Nose: Orange marmelade, apricot, mango, pineapple, pine, sweet caramel malt and grapefruit. This is such a great smell! I LOVE the aroma! Almost overwhelming...

Taste: Hops, pineapple, lemon, spice, grapefuit and bread. Not matching my expectation from the nose.

Body: Medium body with a great oily texture. Sticky carbonation and the just right amount of bitterness.

I like Epic's DIPA! Go New Zealand!

4.33/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Very strong herbal zesty hop flavour, but manages to have enough richness and body to give an impression of balance. There are many very hoppy IPAs available, simply as bitter as possible without any depth to back it up. I like that this beer is bold but manages to also be well rounded.
