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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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.
