22oz bottle, shared with Radarsock. Beautiful electric orange completely hazy color. Good thin white head. Good lace. Good smooth lighter carbonation. Medium body. Awesome orange and grapefruit aromas. Good tangy taste, light bitter and sweet, good amount of zest. Nice floral hops. Very much leaning toward IPA. Very nice, I liked this a lot. Great breakfast beer. stchloe (1104) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Its beautiful and it smells great, smells like real orange!, but otherwise the flavor is lacking and comes across as a decent strong ale only. NikkTwist (3302) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2012
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. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2012
22 oz bomber poured into an Elysian pint glass. Thanks to 5000 for sending me both.
The beer pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the fruit. I get a lot of orange and grapefruit notes, which I assume comes from the blood oranges. I also get a little bit of biscuit malt in the aroma.
The flavor is similar. I get some tartness and a hint of bitterness up front. Once again there is a lot of orange and grapefruit notes, as well as a hint of lemon. I get some biscuit malt and just the slightest hint of sweetness in the flavor. A very fruity, citrusy beer that goes down very easily.
Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle: Deep dirty straw, very thick, moderate to large frothy white head, decent lacing. Very faint citrusy nose, perhaps a bit of pith and unsweetened grapefruit. Not very bright. On the tongue its also fairly non-descript, a bit of hops, semi-sweet pith, some grapefruit. Nothing strong. Seems to have a decent malt background, but other than that its light. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Finishes clean, but very pedestrian and confused. Or maybe thats me?

Had at the 2012 Denver Rare Beer Tasting in Denver, Colorado. Has a meaty like hop scent and taste, was not a big fan. stantheman (1098) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
On tap at St Augustine’s on Commercial Drive. A very orangey color in the glass. Love the citrus flavor on this baby. I’ve had fruit ales that were crap, but this here’s a winner! colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2012

Daerk amber in color, lots of haze and tonf of Orange in the aroma and flavor. This was a very tasty and interesting beer to end the world with. poisoneddwarf (2620) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2012
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.
