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.

All hail the once and future king of commercially available, easy-drinking Northwest IPAs. Superb amber color, combined with a piney, citrus Northwest IPA smell. Excellent. Superb, balanced bitter, yet freshly hopped flavor that trails off to a deep bitterness. Delightful bitter, piney mouthfeel. This is the among best commercially available IPA in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest [i.e. - readily available in grocery stores]. Great flavor! Purchased regularly!

Poured cloudy golden in nonic. Head retained nicely. Good lace.
Aroma flowery, sweet, malt forward.
Taste wonderfully ballanced. Very smooth easy going flavors ranging from mildly hoppy to malt smoothness. Tastes extremely fresh though it's not the season for fresh hop IPA's nor is it hyped as one.
Aftertaste is near perfection. The perfect IPA for a hot Summer (Spring?) afternoon.
Overall, there is nothing to dislike about this beer.
I want more.
