On the Wings of Armageddon
12oz can to Duvel deco tulip
Says drink fresh on can but there is no date.
Thanks to HopAG for this one!
A – A very hazy, coppery-gold with some green. Reminds me of organic apple juice. Opaque and no translucence. Not appealing.
S – A nice big whiff of fruit and plant. Light on the nose yet confident. On the melony side with a bit of peach and apple (but not gross apple-excess acetaldehyde). A slight planty smell like fresh cut flower stalks. A tiny bit of pine is hiding in the back of the smell. No citrus or grass yet. As it warms, it becomes a bit muddled and more grassy.
T – There’s a nice flavor upfront, but then it kind of falls of. The middle taste is just thin. The after taste is nice though. Some fruity bitterness lingers at a nice level for a long time. The initial taste is a nice fruity hoppiness. It’s an earthy grassiness with some peachy-apple flavor. But it falls off somewhat quickly. As it warms, the taste doesn’t change much, at least not for the better.
M – Medium bodied, actually pretty good, but the carbonation is a bit off. I’d like it a bit more carbonated. Good dryness to the finish.
O – I expected a lot and it kind of delivered. Didn’t improve with about 20 minutes to let the aromas open up. I can see myself wanting one or two to start a football game with or for one dinner on occasion, but I’d have to drink it before it warmed too much. It gets points for the great initial smell and aftertaste.
3, 4, 4, 4.25, 4; 4.06.

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.
