Small white head with fair retention and lacing. Lightly hazy gold hued brew. Nose of pine, citrrus and some fried wiring. Body is medium with a soft carbo, hint oily. Fairly dry malts backed with light citrus and pine notes, lightly grainy. Dry, lightly fruity finish, grain with a tame bite. I prefer Joe myself. Bottle from statelineliquors.

The name sounds imposing, but Apocalypse IPA is pretty goddamn drinkable. It pours golden orange with an off-white head that stays around for a while. Hop aromatics are distinctly American but rather nuanced. Piney, floral, and citrusy stone fruit notes. Grapefruit, peach, apricot, pineapple, orange, and mango flavors. There’s a bit of creaminess to the feel and a crisp mineral finish like a semi-dry white wine. It’s remarkably balanced and would likely appeal even to folks who aren’t hopheads.

The beer pours a lightly hazy golden with a decent head and some nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma seems kind of Amarillo forward with that signature citrus and some pineapple stuff happening. There’s a bit of light maltiness to it, but mostly it’s bright fruit forward hops.
The flavor is fruity and hoppy again, lightly sweet with just a bit of caramel character. It’s got some grapefruit, a little pine, some orange, and a bit of pineapple going on.
pretty decent IPA really
Fresh hops , some citrus notes and a hint of sweet malt in the aroma. Light golden color with a thin white head. Sweet malt up front covered up quickly with a piney hop bitterness. Sweet caramel is overbalanced with bitterness from hops...but not too off-putting. Hops heavy with pine flavors. Finish is dry with nice bitterness...echo’s throughout the finish.

On tap at The Pub. Great IPA, not crazy hoppy, dangerously drinkable with a nice citrus and earthy spice balance.

12oz bottle pours with a clear deep gold body that has a copper core and supports a thin white head. The aroma offers up pine hops and grapefruit like citrus hops and then some floral hops with a thin soft maltiness in the background. The taste is similar as I get bitter pine and grapefruit like hoppiness with thin rings of floral hops at the periphery. There’s little in the way of late addition flavor hops here but the hop bitterness is just spot on with a bit of an assist from the mild malty base. Pretty nice straight forward IPA.

on Draft at O’Connells. Decent IPA that I had never heard of but took a chance. Nice citrus hops, pretty tasty. zvsn (2302) - ISRAEL - NOV 6, 2016
Bottle sample, thanks rayaron. Hazy yellow orange with a white creamy head. Aroma of fruity hops, slightly stale, a bit earthy and floral. Sweet, fruity, grainy, caramel, grass, herbs, stale hops, dry bitter finish. Medium-bodied. OK. rayaron (1992) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - NOV 3, 2016
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange with white head. Sweetish aroma with notes of fruits (peach, banana) and flowers. Sweetish flavor, fruity, light hoppy bitterness, notes of citrus (orange, lemon), dry. Medium-bodied. Clean and nice. Stine (1799) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Plain transparent orange with a clinging white cap. Aroma is honeyed apricot, muted pine; pleasantly herbal and floral, lavender. Some astringent white tea qualities. The flavor projects a chalky bitterness, lacking definition, and a basic citrus peel fruitiness. The palate is dry, brisk, relatively light. Cleanly floral finish. Nothing off or incorrect about this but it lacks a necessary quenching quality somehow, which can’t be considered an objective issue.
