Drank on-tap at Lord Hobo, Cambridge, MA
Served in a cervoise
The beer poured an opaque, glowing yellow ochre color. A creamy, white, one-finger head topped the liquid. Rings of drippy lacing coated the glass.
Hops were pervasive in the aroma. Super fruity, rich and complex. Tons of tropical fruit notes. Mango, papaya and guava came through strongest. Lots of peach and apricot as well. Hint of tangerine. Quite impressive.
The flavor profile was similar to the aroma, but a touch drier and more bitter. As in the nose, tropical fruits were in full force. Mango and papaya dominated. Strong peach and apricot notes were apparent as well. Some grapefruit pithiness. Touch of orange peel and tangerine. The beer was piney on the back end and finished quite dry. Moderately bitter and very nicely balanced. As the beer warmed, the bitterness intensified.
The mouthfeel was super slick, creamy and rich with a fine, moderate effervescence. Supple and pillowy.
On The Wings Of Armageddon is hops head's dream, yet it still contains enough balance to satisfy those who like a slightly more balanced DIPA. This is dangerously drinkable stuff. Kudos to DC Brau for doing the style right.

Poured a light copper body with lace rings down the glass. An earthy, funky citric hop aroma with minimal sweet malts. Smooth, very hoppy of the citric variety along with a crisp, dry finish. The beer is balanced, not too hoppy, thanks to a little bit of grape flavors from hops as well and touches of bready/caramel sweetness. Overall, a well-balanced and designed IPA that is a great sipper.
