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.

1 PINT 6 FL. OZ. bottle

It is amber in color with two inches of white head with excellent lacing.

The smell is citrus with a little weed.

The taste is citrus and bitter with a solid malt backbone.

Moderate mouthfeel

It is a decent IPA. It was cheap. Three dollars and fifty cents for a 22 ounce bottle at the gas station. You can't beat that.

Acquired via trade from Donkster46 so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains piney hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong but not over-powering hops presence. Then some sweetness comes in from flavors of citrus and caramel. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a very nice IPA to drink for a long time if you’re looking something less harsh than most.
