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

RBAG summer 2012. From a brown 650ml bottle. Dark golden pour, hazy. White filmy head with spotty lacing. Pleansatly hoppy nose with pine notes, assorted citrus and caramel underneath. In the mouth the beer has grapefruity hoppiness. Finishes with a lot of grapefruity hops, Medium body with nice carbonation. Easy to drink, good hoppiness throughout.

Appearance holds a golden orange color supporting a healthy head leaving nice lace. Smell of grapefruit citrus, piney backed by the sweetness of the malt. Taste has that upfront grapefruit bitterness balanced by the sweetness of the malt. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.

Bottle(12oz): cloudy golden color with one finger of head which disappears. Slightly creamy (malts?). Bitter in the end. Good. Worth a drink.

A light and citrusy aroma comes from this hazy orange liquid, topped with a huge, soft white head that got quite rocky over the next few minutes. The foam just disappeared in no time, pasting a sticky and heavy lacing on the inside of my glass. This finishes very dry and carries a lingering and slightly uncomfortable bitter. Definitely a toasted malt flavor coming through, but find none of the pine or fruit that others have observed. Not a hug fan of this particular offering, but will definitely try it again another time to be sure that this is a good representation. Iíve heard better things than I am experiencing.

MrDick (346) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 8, 2014
I tend to like crisp, clean IPAs that lack a malt backbone, so I really enjoyed drinking the Apocalypse IPA. The blend of hops gives it a good nose and taste. Usual flavors for a west-coast style IPA minus the malt. Very drinkable.

Bottle. A: Semi-opaque orange with a thin white head that dies down. N: Light grapefruit and orange. Pine and earth. Crystallized sugar. Not as intense as one would expect. T: Very bitter and biting. Fruity. M: Dry and scraping. Medium body. Bit watery. O: There is plenty of citrus in this beer, but I remember it being far superior on tap at the brewery. Perhaps it doesnít scale up well or the beer needs to be an hour old. I donít know. Merely decent.
