I love their descriptions almost as much as the beers. This is very good indeed. The various ingredients combine to make a very interesting brew. Tart and refreshing, very easy going down. Everything works somehow.

650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow/gold with light head. Aromas of pine, malt, tropical fruit, and funk. Flavors of malt and orange juice. Snappy and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Still holding on to a couple of these bottles, I had to really convince myself that they have held up 3 years after the apocalypse. Sometimes all it takes is a couple "opening acts" to convince me to dust off a bottle and crack it. This here is one of those. Everything about the pour and flavor to me says that it has held up nicely. Love the labels on these by the way. Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a lasting oily fizz head. Very mild orange aroma. Flavor is quite juicy. Orange juice like flavor with some big citrus hop flavor, and mild bitterness finish. Juicy orange and grapefruit late into the palate. Pretty good beer, and very glad it’s still good through the last few. Very similar to the Super Fuzz blood orange pale they have going now. Overall, a pretty good beer. I’ll be convinced now that the other apocalypse beers i’m sitting on will be equally as good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Khyber Pass. Cloudy orange pour with a big white head that quickly went down to a very thin ring. Astringent citrus flavors. Blood orange pulp, seeds and pith. Citra hop bite as well. Juicy but quite bitter. Somewhat one note, and the body is a bit too thin, but still an interesting brew.

Draft at Mudville 9 NYC. Pours a cloudy orange color with a hearty foam that lasts. Taste is tart, hoppy and wheaty with some sweetness. Very interesting!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours an ugly cloudy orange--looks like pureed oranges--with a medium off-white lacy head. If it weren’t for that color, the appearance would have gotten a 4. Aroma is very orangey and a bit floral. Taste is bittersweet with an emphasis on bitter. It has an orange flavor, but it’s not extremely noticeable like the beets in Apocalypse #7. It finishes with a slight spicy burn. Mouthfeel has a nice creaminess. It’s good, but so far the least interesting out of these Apocalypse beers I’ve had. Mostly, it just tastes like an IPA.
