3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the stagshead. I swore of beer until I finished inputting backlog but that only lasted 2 days. Pours cloudy yellow orange with one finger soapy head. Orange and pine on nose. Tastes of blood orange, grapefruit, pine, resin, grassy, and light horse blanket. Dry on finish could use even more blood orange.

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!

3.3 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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
1/4 inch lacy white head. Cloudy bright orange color. Light loose sediment. Mild hop mild floral ester orange peel front. Medium light textured slightly creamy orange flavored smooth body. Slightly tangy bitter hint mild hop spice end. Pretty easy to drink. Mild hops and a touch bland. Wierd like all the Apocalypse Series.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
No bottle date. I think this should be listed as an APA rather than a Fruit beer, as it’s identified by the brewer as a Pale.
Turbid orange with loosely associated soapy whites around the rim and an etched surface. Nose is way hoppier than I had anticipated: dank, grapefruit, resin, some orange if I beg for it, but not particularly evident. If they didn’t say there was fruit, I wouldn’t guess it. Flavor is bitter, with some fruity character (mostly bitter grapefruit), not much more than resin and some biscuity undertones of malt. More like an IPA for me. Medium bodied with reserved carbonation and a semi dry finish. This is drinkable, but more like a sub par PNW IPA rather than a specially concocted fruit infused pale ale.
