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 Bu: 65 ABV: 6.5% Malt: 2-row Pale, Victory, Crystal

22 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but was purchased recently. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, floral, pineapple, orange rind, lemon zest, pine, honey, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hops and malt sweetness. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, floral, pine, grass, honey, light caramel, light bread, and floral earthiness. Moderate floral and citrus bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, floral, light pine, honey, light caramel, and floral earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a great balance of hops/malt that still showcases the hop flavors; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA! Great balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. No complaints at all, very well done.

AirForceHops (2939) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Draft @ Black Back Fly shop. Big citrus of grapefruit, mango and just a bit of pine wafting out of the snifter. In your face citrus. Taste is just as nice as the aroma. Tropical fruits, grapefruit, pine that isn’t really bitter on the palate. Lots of sweet bready malt. Also some yeast presence. The taste is wonderful. No over whelming bitterness at all. I can see how some hop heads may not take to this. For me, I would order this on draft again. Well worth the price of a glass.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle. Light citrusy aroma. Golden straw color. Sharp, tangy grapefruit and cereal initial / mid palate is much the same / final sort of dissipates quickly, with a touch of bitterness lingering at the back of the tongue. Medium body, a bit fizzy. Mild, and nice enough, but not a spectacular brew. Okay.
