Apex: The highest point, the culmination or climax. In racing, the apex of the turn is approached differently as conditions dictate but always with a forward looking mindset. This beer is the culmination of years of brewing and drinking hop forward IPAs. We reserve the right to move forward, to advance the style to the next Apex. 2009 California State Fair - Silver 2009 The Bistro Double IPA Fest – Bronze & People’s Choice 2009 Night of the Living Ales Cask Festival – 3rd Place & People’s Choice

Draft @ OB’s HLS in longmont. Nose is prickly pineapple, resiny pine and a pleasant ’wet earth’ backend. Flavor is the nose, though some sweeter oranges show up and the earthy hops are more eveident, though the resiny bitterness is still king. A really nice drinking beer. A pleasant departure from their typically fruitier offerings. Would order again, which I guess rates a point or two.

alobar (2831) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2010
Pours a golden yellow color with an aroma of citrus, hops, and caramel. Lighter bodied for the style. Flavor of grapefruit, pine, and hops. Well-balanced and well done.

Draught at Greens. Pours a nice, hazy orange with a medium off white head a some lacing. Sweet, citrusy pine aroma dominates. Flavor begins with sweet citrus fruit (grapefruit and maybe a bit of limon) and tails off into a delicious hoppy, piney finish. A strong brew but not as impressive as I was hoping when I purchased it.

sloth (2517) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2010
Medium statured offwhite head with decent retention and nice lacing too boot. Lightly hazy orange amber color. Nose jumps right out at you, fruity, piney and cutrusy with light woody notes. Medium bodied, lightly resiny and chewy. Good hop flavors, citrus pine and a nice earthyness with a good caramel malt backing. Fairly dry fruity juicey finish. A real treat had on draft @statelineliquors. Thanks Robert!!

The aroma is a nice citrus, caramel. The flavor is the same as the aroma, with a little more pine, and citrus. The appearance is a hazy yellow, white head. The finish is a resiny hop bittering. Good IIPA.
