Deathly amounts of hops with some rye, a great choice for your last beer.

On tap @ Apocalypse Brew Works. Cloudy orange colored beer with some white foam. Pretty solid hop aroma. Lots of dried pineapple, some watermelon, and grapefruit. Maybe some peach, too. Fair amount of bread and some caramel malts, too. Flavor is a bit too sweet, but there’s a good bit of citrus and tropical fruit hop character to make up for it. Nice melon and tangy grapefruit. Moderate bitterness as well.

The aroma is hops, floral and grass/spruce. Pours a copper/orange with big off-white head, mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. Not bad, in fact pretty good for a place that appears to just be a hobby - they have a good following and require clean and sanitary food trucks - A nice place to visit!

Draft at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a clear light golden color with very little head. The aroma and flavor have a mild hop, mild rye character, toasted bread, some sweetness, actually pretty boring.

ContemplateBeer (1824) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 4, 2014
Aroma: Rye bread with a dash of caramel; hops are moderately citrusy. Appearance: Light copper pour with a film of white head. Flavor: Matches the nose, but has a bit more tropical fruit, especially toward the finish; comes off a bit lighter in the hop department than I’d like. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation, lightly bitter finish. Overall: A nice beer, but could use some amping up to compete with the big boys.

Draft at APW pub. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex hop and earthy rye aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Draft to pint at Apocalypse. Looks good; a cloudy burnt-orange with sticky off-white lacing. Smells and tastes of rye and hops with a nice rye tingle on the palate. Good beer.
