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.

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.

Poured in to a shaker pint from a bomber acquired in Malad, ID. Poured an orange yellow color with a thick, two-finger plus foamy head. Smelled piney and citrusy. Taste was a major pine resin hop bomb. Almost overpowering at first. There is no balance here.. but I kinda liked that. It's been a while since I had an IPA that just carpet bombed my tongue with bitterness like that.
