DC Brau Announces Return of On the Wings of Armageddon Cans


DC Brau Brewing Company’s famed imperial IPA, On the Wings of Armageddon (or OTWOA as the internet calls it) is slated for a 2nd release of cans Saturday, May 4. Following a huge response after the first batch dropped at the brewery on March 16, they went to work on a follow up to satisfy the undying thirst of DC area hopheads (and beer trading lunatics from around the country). All signs point to a similar, if not larger turnout than last time, so don’t sleep on this if you have designs on landing a six-pack or four.

The details:

  • There will be TWO places to buy OTWOA this time – the tasting room register and a cash only area at their first loading dock door (ONLY OTWOA will be available at this station)
  • $19.79 after tax per sixer – those paying cash at the loading dock area will receive a DC Brau pin instead of change
  • 200 cases available
  • NO limit – but if supply runs low fast, the brewery “may impose a 1 case limit”

Commercial description:

“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 biscuit 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.”

DC Brau Brewing Company is located at 3178-B Bladensburg Rd. NE in Washington, DC.
