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.

Pours a clear golden orange, trending brown towards the thicker parts of the glass. The head is white, smaller than expected, and creamy. Lacing is great. Looks pretty amazing, actually. Lots of grapefruit in the aroma. Other citrus as well, and it actually smells juicy. Smells a little sweet also, like confectioner's sugar, along with dark cake. The grains are coming across very differently in this one than normal. Instead of biscuity and dense, it seems to be light, sweet, and fluffy. Flavor starts with the typical bready, biscuity notes, followed by a slight yeast tang, then it goes bitter. The bitterness is strong and aggressive, though there is some citrus in there too, mostly orange. The feel is appropriate for the style, if very slightly viscous. Finish is balanced.

As it warms the hops subside and the bread crust malt flavors overrun your palate. It's great for about two ounces of the bomber and good for 20.

Not sure but have to admit I ate a incredible Homemade Migas meal 1 hour before drinking this fine beer. Taste mighty fine after Migas that is for sure. I read wetpaperbag's review and I agree with all of his comments. The smell is unique, must be the grapefrut. I am buying more to share with friends and see what they think!

Light amber in the tall glass. Pleasantly spritzy on the tongue. Piney hops in the nose. A dark scrawl of resiny flavor across the light malty taste. Light bodied with a slight sheen of oil on the tongue.

A Pale Ale sort of taste with the browned biscuits and the moderate bitterness. Pleasantly malty with a sharpish tang. Less bitter than a lot of IPAs, but there is a long bitter burn at the finish after some sipping. Quite drinkable and an enjoyable slurp with the hoppy tanginess but not so bitter. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Market of Choice on 29th in Eugene.

22oz bottle poured into a large snifter. If there's a bottle code or best by date, I don't see it, but I'm pretty bad about finding these things.

Pours clear, amber-orange, nice fluffy white head, medium amount of active carbonation. Smell is fresh and floral, grassy, slightly piney. Taste is piney bitter. Surprisingly bitter. Mild honey sweetness.

Mouthfeel is thin, light, a bit filmy. Overall, this is a pretty solid beer.
