The second “Apex” beer to come from Bomber Brewing is a Double Pilsner called just that, the Apex Double Pils. Pouring this beer from the Canadian-hockey inspired bomber bottle it is golden-straw in colour and pours with close to two fingers worth of lacing head. The aroma is light with notes of citrus and pine along with a light booziness. Rather hop forward on the nose, tasting the Apex it has a big body and starts things off in the flavour with that piney, citrus from the nose. Not overly bitter, the flavour is quite hoppy and has a distinct malty character that comes out mid-way through the tasting. A bitterness builds along the lingering pine character and finishes with a warming, lightly boozy tone. The Double Pilsner is a rare style in BC and is more often referred to as an Imperial Pilsner. This is a nice representation of the style with a bit more hop character than is typical for such a brew.

Alcohol – 6.8%
IBU – 48

    How is it a pilsner? Nothing described here makes me think of a pilsner.
