Look-Cloudy light amber color
Smell-I'm smelling the glorious hops straight off in the glass. In the nose, the hops are pine scented.
Taste-Holy hop. I forgot how strong the single hop process makes the taste of the beer. I'm now fully reminded.
Mouth-Medium bodied. Extremely dry and hoppy in the mouth before a surprisingly smooth and subdued finish.
Overall-Single Hop beers are not my thing but I have had my share. If you love hop explosion...start here. What I appreciate is the (relatively) smooth finish. It explodes in your mouth...but doesn't linger...until the next sip and subsequent explosion.
About On The Wings Of Armageddon:
TWOA 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.
