Poured from a 12 oz. can into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a big fruit smell, very inviting. Appearance- This beer has a copper to reddish-gold color. Pours a large off-white head. Taste- Has a great flavor. Full of fruit and hops, this really masks the 8% ABV. Palate- A medium to heavy beer with moderate carbonation. Goes down real smooth. Overall- This beer is a knockout. Apocalypse has crafted a very good beer with some exceptional artwork on the can that will leave a memorable experience. Must try

Can. Pours reddish orange with a large peach head. Smells of yummy fruity hops. Smooth light fruity hops, slight leaves. Tasty.

solidfunk (5004) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 3, 2015
A little boozy and off balance. Pours amber with OK head and lacing. Decent hop showing and citrus. Finish a touch sour. Can from Total Wine.

Atom (1690) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2015
12oz can thanks to nimbleprop, pours a clear bright Amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of sweet caramel with citrus hops and melon. Citrus and melon ride straight up the palate, some cotton candy, and finishing with caramel malt and a light bitterness. Alright.

jgb9348 (5021) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Super rich and hazy copper, orange and bronze coloured body with an almost ruby tint and a rich, slightly frothy tan head. Aroma of alcohol, hops, toffee, rich malts and a heavy dose of bitterness all around. Medium to Full-bodied; Rich malty flavour with some nuts, earth, caramel, toffee and of course hops tucked in. Aftertaste doesn’t show much complexity, but shows some depth, especially with the malt bill and the rich toffee and sweetness - nice and full-bodied with solid flavours that don’t bitter or make the flavour pungent. Overall, a rather nice beer with a full body and a well-rounded, balanced flavour that isn’t surprising, variable or evolutionary, just a well-produced beer with good flavours that hits the style well - I’m pleasantly surprised. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 20-November-2014 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington on 29-December-2014.

Canned. Reddish brown pour. Malty sweetness leasing to a fairly hippy finale. Decent.

rosenbergh (8316) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Draught at the Shenandoah Hops, Staunton, VA. Dark red colour with a small head. Absolutely intense fruity hoppy aroma. I don't normally dig Red Ales but this one kicks ass. Very fruity, very hoppy, very strong and absolutely tasty. Great stuff! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured at GABF and drank at GABF...I was volunteer pouer. Damn good brew here. Huge IBU yet so well balanced. Rich malty brew but better yet the fresh hops plowing through!!! Hard to tell it was 8%. Superb brew.
