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.

A- Beer is nice and golden reddish orangish amber color with a thick two finger head that is very clingy and sticky.

S- Big grapefruit smell in the nose, not so much pine but some lemon, perhaps Buddhas hand zest. There is a slight ginger and gin smell too.

T- The taste has a big malt presence that helps the hop flavor. Bready and roasty come though the flavor. The hops are grapefruity and clean with a nice wonderful spruce tip taste to it. Solid brew.

M- Thick to medium body in the feel.

D- Very easy to drink, this is a well rounded brew.

22 oz. bottle from John's Marketplace PDX poured into Dogfish Head pint glass 4.18.10.

Two fingers rock white head, slow dissipation and significant lacing. Pretty hoppy nose, piney and citrus with bready and caramel malts. Taste is hop forward, a bit spicy but well balanced, sweet from caramel malts. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and finish got more spicy as the beer warmed. Fairly drinkable but quite unremarkable.

On tap at the new pub location...

A: Pours a golden yellow with hints of orange and a nice frothy two finger head, very creamy and almost stark white. Falls slowly and leaves pretty good lacing.

S: Big citrus hop aroma, definitely grapefruit, tangerine, very fruity overall, a little pine resin as well but dominated by the fruit. Smells pretty fresh.

T: Follows the nose a little too far here, the fruit seems to dominate the palate a little too much and doesn't come off aggressive enough in the hop profile. Needs to be a little bit crisper as well with all the fruit. Nice, but not quite balanced IMO.

M: Smooth, nice carbonation, dry finish helps this go down smoother.

D: For the style this is pretty drinkable, not a full on hop assault, which to its credit helps it go down smoother, but could use a little more hop to balance the flavors out.
