Bought a case of bombers from the brewery July 2011.
A - Pours a deep yellow with a thin film head.
S - Hops, pine, orange, sweet malt, orange.
T - Malty on the front end, nice and bitter on the back end. Orange and piney wood flavors dominate and I like how the malt and hops are balanced.
M - Carbonation is lively, but not bothersome, works well even though a creamier feel would really make this more amazing than it already is.
O - This is a great brew that is more of a sipper than a DIPA. I have yet to have anything less than better-than-average from 3Floyd's. I'll definitely buy this again, really enjoyed it.

Bottled on 7/2/14. 22oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy copper with a fluffy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves sticky lacing and great retention. The aromas have their signature hop profile, but in a very subtle way. Lots of malts with a good amount of citrus. Slightly floral as well. Some caramel. Some bread notes as well. The best way to describe the flavors is "bittersweet". Lots of caramel. The lactose obviously gives this beer a sweetness to it, but there's no shortage of hops going on. Lots of lemon and lime. Some hints of orange peel and grapefruit. There's even a very subtle spiciness to this one. There are some alcohol notes that are present. I'm not saying it's boozy, but there's a little heat. Mouthfeel is great. It's full-bodied and very creamy. It has active carbonation, but still remains fluffy. This makes a nice sipper and a nice brew to relax with. It becomes even more enjoyable as it warms up.
The craftsmanship is very impressive, but it doesn't get me overly excited. It's not really worth the price of admission, in my humble opinion. I definitely enjoyed my time with Apocalypse Cow, but it's not something I'll be dreaming about.
