COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Northwest American-Style IPA. The color comes through as a deep gold with orange hues. Fruity and citrusy hop aroma shines, with hints of pine resin. The four hop flavor dominates, re-enforcing the aroma with more citrus, fruity and piney notes. The malt character is clean and smooth with a unique toasted flavor (thanks to the generous helping of Victory malt), all held together by a firm bitterness. Apocalypse has a medium-bodied mouth feel, finishing crisp and dry. All of this results in a very drinkable IPA.

Hops: Horizon, Centennial, Amarillo, Cascade
Malt: 2-row Pale, Victory, Crystal

The bottle the pour is blonde and slightly cloudy with a light white head that dissipates but not immediately, the aroma is citrus like grapefruit and hops, the taste is lightly sweet on the front end with a nice bitter grapefruit citrus and hop finish, the overall finish is a little bitter with a little bit of sweetness.

Bacterial (2164) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Slightly hazy pale yellow pour with a nice thick white head and lacing. Nice citrus and pine nose (70/30 ratio or so). Nice mouthfeel. Big hop presence. Bitter, but really well balanced by the citrus and pine hops. Pretty solid for a $4 bomber.

Had the nitro version and it was super! Very well balanced and extremely drinkable. Plenty of malt to stand up to the fresh hops. The nitro enhanced the body. Hope I get to try it again.

onceblind (5312) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Brilliant golden with a slight chill haze under a thin foamy sticky white cap. Lovely hop aroma featuring loads of sticky tropical tones like mango and melon/pine/floral resins. Crisp and dry flavor with a bitter grassy/piney/leafy flavor that loses all of the tropical nuance of the aroma and just becomes a standard american IPA with predictable piney bitterness and a dry pale malt body.

zoucrew102 (837) - - JUN 21, 2015
Bomber. Tropical fruit aroma with mango, pineapple and some pine resiny notes. Pours golden colored with a decent white head with good retention and no lacing. Starts with juicy tropical fruit flavors with mango and pineapple notes. Finishes dry but smooth especially for an IPA with a touch of pine resiny bitterness. Nice IPA.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained off white head, with some lacing, over a very slightly hazy, gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is moderate pine, resin, citrus, light cereal, herbal notes, balance to the hops.....taste is slightly floral sweet, with toasted malts, with toasted bread, biscuit notes, hops add pine, resin, citrus tones, finishing with a lingering moderate bitterness, balance to the hops.......mouth feel, medium body, slight alcohol, moderate carbonation. The malts are on the light side in complexity for an American IPA, but the hops make up with a broad spectrum of aromas and flavors. A touch more of caramel/crystal, and perhaps Vienna malt might make an improvement. BJCP 8/3/15/5/7

BuckeyeBoy (3543) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 5, 2015
On tap at Boise pub. Pours out a orangeish golden topped with a fluffy head. Nose is fruit citrus pine and a nice malty sweetness. Taste is more of the fruit mix and a piny bitterness on the end. A solid ipa always.
