On the Wings of Armageddon

photo (1)9.2% ABV. Double IPA from DC Brau. DC Brau created this baby according to Mayan and Hopi calendars showing the “transition from one world age to another” which was supposed to happen last December 21, 2012. As an homage to the “transition” DC Brau concocted an Imperial IPA named On the Wings of Armageddon (OTWOA), which is a single hop blend beer utilizing Falconers Flight. Brewed with just enough Pale malt, Cara-60, CaraPils and Malted wheat to carry the intense hop character onto the pallet. OTWOA pours a hazy glowing orange with a one finger white head. Sticky lacing and decent retention throughout. Aromas of grapefruit and citrusy hops. Picked up lots of grapefruit and citrus hops in the flavor as well. Very fresh and tropical with some pine notes showing up. There is a dry biscuity malt undertones. Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation throughout. Smooth and a fantastic bitter finish. Another fantastic crispy and refreshing brew from what is quickly becoming the best local brewery in the DC area!
