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

22 oz bottle. Very pleasant hoppy IPA aroma followed by a yellowish pour, slightly cloudy with a tiny foamy head. Weak lacing. Good flavor and drinkability. Overall a worthy candidate for the rotation if it becomes more widely available.

DSG (11505) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 26, 2016
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of citric and piney hops, a bit stale. Flavor has some sweetish malt, a touch of marmalade, and bitter piney and citric hops, slightly stale. Medium-bodied. Decent, but probably better fresher.

fakebeersnob (320) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Pours an orange/copper color with a decent soapy head that sticks to the side of the glass. The retention is quite long. First bit of aroma, I got a fresh cut grass smell, but as it warms the sweet fruit smell comes through. I am getting more of a stone fruit taste than citrus...like a peach or mango? Bitter pine finish. Solid malt backing. At first I thought this was average, but now half-way through, I am appreciating this a lot more.

Poured from bomber into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours an orange amber color with a two finger head of white foam. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of a grapefruit citrus and some sweeter fruit of a tropical nature (papaya, tangerine and mango) with some harvest fruit of apple and peach as well. Along with the nice fruity smells, comes a bit of a pine and grassy smell as well as some hay. Overall the aroma is quite nice. Taste – The taste begins with a great grapefruit hop taste that is mixed with the sweetness of tropical fruits and harvest fruits that were present in the nose. There is a little bit of a doughiness upfront which fades as the taste advances and is replaced by some toasted bready tastes mixed with a little bit more fruitiness. While the fruitiness increases a bit in intensity, hop flavors of resinous pine and a bit of grass come to the tongue, leaving one with a rather flavorful and smooth hopped up taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the medium side in terms of thickness and chewiness with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the mix of fruity, dank and lightly toasted flavors the feel is fantastic and makes for one easy drinking but robust drinker. Overall – I rather enjoyed this brew. It has a ton of different flavors that all melded together well. Along with the great nose and feel, the combination of attributes made for a very nice drinking brew.

Fresh bottle carried across the country by a good friend. This is a great benchmark of a West Coast IPA. It’s clean and neutral, super clear and firmly bitter. It didn’t shake any of my dearly held beliefs, but who wants a beer to do that anyway?

ADfan (852) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 11, 2016
In the glass it has a light amber color with a nice head. Aroma of citrus and some pine. The taste has more citrus with some mango and malts. Good balance with a long finish.

Banksiz (90) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Mainly a piney-hoppy nose with some maltiness and a little honey and stone fruit as it warms up. Bitter with a medium-heavy mouth feel. Finish is a little too bitter for me. Good IPA, but in a beer at 6.8% ABV, I’d like to see a bit more depth and complexity to the flavor.
