Very Good
Apocalypse IPAApocalypse IPA
Notes: A Northwest American-Style IPA. The color comes through as a deep gold with orange hues. Fruity and citrusy hop aroma shines, with hints of pine resin. The four hop flavor dominates, re-enforcing the aroma with more citrus, fruity and piney notes. The malt character is clean and smooth with a unique toasted flavor (thanks to the generous helping of Victory malt), all held together by a firm bitterness. Apocalypse has a medium-bodied mouth feel, finishing crisp and dry. All of this results in a very drinkable IPA.

Pours a very pretty hold with brass highlights. Head drops off fast, but it's solid looking.

Aroma is off-putting. Sourish, with strong alcohol, and a bit of wet dog. Not ideal.

Flavor is far better! Sharp, gasoline like hops (in a good way), with big mango and some passion fruit following-up. The finish dried nicely to sticky-icky resin. Very nice.

Mouthfeel is nice. Well balanced, with good, tight bubbles. A drinking beer, not made for food.

Overall, despite the terrible aroma, this is worthwhile! Drink it cold and fresh.

Appearance: orange and slightly hazy. Thin head with thin lacing.

Smell: slightly sweet. Caramel. Hops are sweet fruit.

Taste: hop bomb. Bittered with pine.

Mouthfeel: balanced between sweet and dry. Medium carbonation. Medium body. Think Jenny McCarthy.

Overall: pretty good. Not my favorite IPA. The bittering hops take away from the rest of the beer. Strong bittering that lingers.

From a 12oz bottle stamped 3 October 2017. Pours orange with a half finger of white head. Grapefruit hop smell. Medium, resiny feel. Pine and citrus flavors, a little bit sweet. Well balanced, but a little subdued.
