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

DenverLogan (996) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Mad Elf tulip glass. Pours a light gold yellow with head and lace. Aroma of sweet malts & herbal esters. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich grains, light malts, minerals, white pepper, bitter herbs. Overall rich and flavorful, tasty for a hop head but a bit challenging. I personally prefer the big brother "Dub."

Bottle shared by Minderbinder, thanks man! Pours a really hazy golden with a small white head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of fruits and pine. Taste is moderately sweet and bitter with some dank hop flavors over a caramel background. Body is medium, carbonation a touch over medium and mouthfeel is a bit sticky and lightly juicy. Overall an OK "old style" IPA, I wouldn’t necessarily seek out again.

How: From bottle (22 oz) at czar’s place. Shared by minderbinder, thanks!

>>> An average but a bit heavy (especially for the abv) IPA.

- Slightly hazy bright golden with a small white head and some lacing.
- Quite perfumy along with citrus and piney hops.
- Moderate sweetness with a good malt backbone.
- A bit heavy for my liking.
- Medium body. Moderate to medium carbonation. A bit oily. Dry finish.

Flavors: Perfumy, pine, citrus, caramel malt, mild spiciness, herbal notes.

Fruity aroma . nice citrus notes. In fact, sprucy overtones with a slightly piney underbite. Surprisingly thin. Maybe slight grapefruit flavor? Comes thru kinda sour.
