Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Patrick on 10-31-2009

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.

Appearance - Pours relatively clear and a light golden orange in color. The head peaks at a half finger thick and rolls back quickly to a thin, broken layer of surface suds. Virtually no lacing.

Smell - Hoppy aroma as expected, with notes of pine, citrus and pineapple. Clean malt breadiness underneath.

Taste - A modestly hoppy IPA, but well tuned to create a simple harmonious buzz. Orange is at the forefront with backing notes of pineapple and a hint of grapefruit. Malts that hint at caramel, but moreso imparts a lightly toasted breadiness. Touches of mango and peach with it's stoney pit. Moderate pine and citrus pith bitterness come through near the finish, but orange sweetness is there too, delivering a balanced bittersweet aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Slick and smooth on the tongue, exhibiting a stupid ability to drink before a semi-dry finish.

Overall - Damn, this is good. It's not the most aggressively hop-forward IPA's I've had but I'll be damned if it's not one of the smoothest and more brilliantly woven ones I can recall. Think Bell's Two Hearted meets F-W Union Jack and you'll get the gist of this beer. If you're traveling through Oregon, put this on your list of treasures to hunt!

I did not like this beer. I normally drink stouts so consider this in my opinion. The description is spot on, pine resin with a hint of citrus, nasty! Chew on a pine branch and you will get what this taste like.
