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.

Definitely a standout in the crowded world of DIPA's. One of the best out there.

Bottle pour into tulip glass...poured a slightly cloudy golden-amber-orange color, very beautiful. One finger of bubbly white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aromas of juicy oranges and tangerines, pineapple and tropical notes, some pine, fantastic! The taste follows suit with juicy citrus, oranges and tangerines and grapefruit, tropical fruits, pine notes and some caramel malts as well. Medium and juicy mouthfeel. This beer is absolutely outstanding. Get it now while it's fresh!

22oz bottle poured into shaker. Slightly hazed golden body with a thin sticky white head. Aroma is citrusy, dank hops and caramel malts. Taste has more pine than the nose but is still citrusy in its strong hop bitterness. A touch of sweetness is all that comes through. I’m getting a little band-aid phenol, too. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, and a dry, bitter finish.
