EPIC BREWING ARMAGEDDON IPA


Epic Brewing Armageddon IPA. This beer is not the palate crusher you’d expect given the name. It’s a moderate 60 IBU and 6.66% ABV…“the number of the yeast”. Ah we all love a good beer pun.

It’s an American style IPA brewed by Epic Brewing who are one of the big guns on the New Zealand craft beer scene.

It has a simple malt bill of English pale ale and caramalt. On the hop front is a stack of my favourite hops – Cascade, Centennial, Columbus and Simcoe.

Light golden colour with a creamy hoppy head which is full of hop oils. Nice floral and pine aroma. Floral, citrus and pine hop flavours with a moderately resinous mouthfeel.

There are no heavy caramel flavours or sickly bittersweet characteristics like other American IPAs. It is very flavoursome yet refreshing. This is a fine example of a beautifully balanced American IPA with plenty of hop flavour.

Definitely worth tracking down before the world’s end.

 

9/10
