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.

Thank you blind tiger- pours a clear golden amber with a finger and a half of head, good retention and lacing.

Smells incredible- great fresh pine scent. A little base malt.

Tasted amazing also- big pine hop character but not too bitter. Nice balance of flavors but very very hoppy.

Mouthfeel is great- medium body, modestly carbonated. This ones a keeper.
