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.

Th beer comes in a very dark reddish amber with a beige fluffy head.
The aroma has some over ripe, almosr rotten tropical fruit and grapefruit. There’s some resinous pine and sweet bready malt. Lots of dankness and some green marijuana character.
The flavor follows of this cedar/oak woodiness along with riping green leaves, grass, and wood sap. There are big notes of resinous pine. There’s a medium plus bready malt in the middle with creamy carbonation. The finish is medium minus bitterness, but aggressively dries. The beer flies off the palate quite quickly leaving some leafy hops on the finish.
The beer drinks like a single IPA. It’s extremely different with its interesting hop notes (single hop Falconer’s Flight) and huge drying on the finish.

Appearance is orange/ dark copper color. Head was fairly substantial and had some staying power. Nice lacing.
Odor was citrus(grapefruit mostly) and some floral with a tin bit of sweet.
Taste starts with hop bitterness. Grapefruit and general citrus with a heavy does of green. Floral notes persist throughout and sweet malt is present in the background. Mouth feel is moderate and not heavy. Bitter finish and a little dry.
Overall, a great IPA. Complex and deep with many different flavors.

Pours a beautiful orange in color; good head with retention. Nose is light hops, but taste is strong dank grapefruit. Juicy sweetness, but it's from the hop oils, not the malts. Mouthfeel is as expected. Surprisingly pleased with the beer--a great brew!
