Notes/Commercial Description:
Apex: The highest point, the culmination or climax. In racing, the apex of the turn is approached differently as conditions dictate, but always with a forward looking mindset. This beer is the culmination of years of brewing and drinking hop forward IPAs. We reserve the right to move forward to the next Apex.

Copper colored beer with a finger of head and little retention. Definite floral aroma emanating from this offering. There is a distinct grapefruit taste with a healthy dose of hop bitterness at the finish. This is a solid DIPA, but not quite remarkable.

Serving type: on-tap
