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

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.

writerljberg (631) - Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2014
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.

reus958 (12) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Looks pretty, but doesnít pan out. It seems to be an obligatory NW IPA, not a real attempt. The beer has some light citrus notes, much less than one would expect. The malt falls flat, having few distinguishable flavors, and is quickly overwhelmed by bitterness. The beer isnít bad, but there is nothing interesting going on with hop aroma or flavors, nor the malt. It is simply bitter.

650ml bottle from Whole Foods, Portland, OR

Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of citrus, crisp malts, tart juicy fruits, lemon and grapefruit. Taste is crisp malty, sweetish, tart juicy fruity and lemony with some citrus and grapefruit. Finish is crisp hoppy, bitter and tarnish with some fruitiness. Okay, quite a tart juicy IPA.
