Pour from can. Clear copper with tan head. Light citrus and yeast forward aroma. Flavor is intense. Yeast and bitterness, followed by juicy flavors of pear, grapefruit, and peach. Bitter grapefruit finish. Good for hophead looking for something a little different.

Can share @ The Stein & Vine, Brandon. Thanks Ty! Orangée, col fin blanc. Arôme est profond sur la base des agrumes qui sont fort dominant. Plais reste centré sur l’agrume avec en retrait une fine note d’ananas. Petite note épicée, vert et herbacé, Citra? Amertume perdure mais sans être surfaite, le tout ayant un léger caractère de thé vert. Le fini est houblonné mais ne semble pas être vraiment en harmonie avec le profil de la bière.

ordybill (698) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2015
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 (5473) - 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.

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 (5122) - 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.
