COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Northwest American-Style IPA. The color comes through as a deep gold with orange hues. Fruity and citrusy hop aroma shines, with hints of pine resin. The four hop flavor dominates, re-enforcing the aroma with more citrus, fruity and piney notes. The malt character is clean and smooth with a unique toasted flavor (thanks to the generous helping of Victory malt), all held together by a firm bitterness. Apocalypse has a medium-bodied mouth feel, finishing crisp and dry. All of this results in a very drinkable IPA.

Hops: Horizon, Centennial, Amarillo, Cascade
Malt: 2-row Pale, Victory, Crystal

Fresh bottle carried across the country by a good friend. This is a great benchmark of a West Coast IPA. Its clean and neutral, super clear and firmly bitter. It didnt shake any of my dearly held beliefs, but who wants a beer to do that anyway?

ADfan (870) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 11, 2016
In the glass it has a light amber color with a nice head. Aroma of citrus and some pine. The taste has more citrus with some mango and malts. Good balance with a long finish.

Banksiz (109) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Mainly a piney-hoppy nose with some maltiness and a little honey and stone fruit as it warms up. Bitter with a medium-heavy mouth feel. Finish is a little too bitter for me. Good IPA, but in a beer at 6.8% ABV, Id like to see a bit more depth and complexity to the flavor.

Poured from 12 oz bottle. Wonderful aroma of fruity hops. Nice multi-hop flavor isnt overly complex. A lot of lemon in this one, could be really good with a little less. Long lasting bitterness disguised by the lemon. Certainly better than average.

Aroma is sweet and floral. Reminds me of jam. Looks clear-ish yellow orange with a white head. Taste is hoppy and sweet but not cloying. Hoppy but drinkable. Finishes nicely.
