Notes/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.

65 IBU

Thanks to pkasten for this extra in a trade! Had this one on 10/16/12

Looks good, not too different from a typical IPA look. Hazy light orange, head dissipates some what quickly but leaves some nice lacing along the glass.

Smell is great! In your face fruity hop smell. Pineapple and orange really take over the smell but grapefruit is also present. Definitely the high point of this beer.

Taste is solid. Very good but nothing mind blowing. Not extremely flavorful which was a slight let down and not what I expected after enjoying the smell so much. Good balance of piney and citrusy hops. Good bitterness as well.

Mouthfeel is very nice but a bit to carbonated in my opinion. Bitterness hits the palate nicely. A fuller bodied ipa which is always nice.

Overall this is a very solid IPA. Very drinkable and would not shy away from buying more if it were available in my area.

Appearance holds a golden orange color supporting a healthy head leaving nice lace. Smell of grapefruit citrus, piney backed by the sweetness of the malt. Taste has that upfront grapefruit bitterness balanced by the sweetness of the malt. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.

I bought a 22 oz bottle of Apocalypse IPA in a grocery store. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a shiny gold color, clear with a thin foamy white head.

Smell is sweet citrus aroma like lemon blossoms and pink grapefruit.

Taste is very citrus fruity through out. A blast of sweet orange and lemon up front, with a bitter grapefruit finish.

Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, with a dry finish.

Over all a good IPA. I would have it again.
