DC Brau On the Wings of Armageddon (Best East Coast DIPA?) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

According to Mayan and Hopi calendars the “transition from one world age to another” will happen on December 21, 2012.

As an homage to the “transition” DC Brau has concocted an Imperial IPA named “On the Wings of Armageddon”.

OTWOA 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.

At first glance, it has an orange hue in the glass with a viscus, rocky head that refuses to dissipate. Upon first sniff there are dominate aromas of citrus, white grapes and grapefruit with light bread and biscut notes. After the first sip we taste a mellow bitterness that only grows as more is consumed. Moderately carbonated, deceptively smooth, refreshingly dry and extremely heady for a beer at 9.2% ABV.

OTWOA exhibits all the necessary traits to be revered as a world class Imperial IPA. Beer Geek Nation craft beer reviews
