Napa Smith’s Hopageddon to be bottled

Hopageddon is a wet hopped Imperial IPA aged in Chardonnay & Cabernet barrels. I’ve heard it’s pretty dang tasty, and it must be because they are going to be bottling it soon! Really hope it makes it to the south!

Hopageddon is an end-of-the-world imperial IPA that defies expectations and induces an intense hop-stupor that will leave you wondering what just happened.  At 144 IBUs, Hopageddon glows with a gorgeous fiery orange color and showcases a distinct, full white head.  The added character given by the Chardonnay and Cabernet barrels accentuates explosive papaya and lychee flavors along with herbaceous aromas.  Chewy, grassy, wet-hop flavors, hints of dried apricot, and impressions of barrel tannins are evident in mutiple layers. The distinct Barrel-hopped flavors and shockwave of bitterness lingers on the palate and leaves hopheads with a Post-ahopalyptic yearning for more.
