Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

65 IBU

Visiting Oregon on a motorcycle tour. Color is clear light amber, little head, and light to medium lacing. Aroma is hypnotizing--rich floral heady fresh-squeezed grapefruit hops, with tangerines notes. Flavor is up-front bitter grapefruit peel hops, a little sweetness, and mild malt. Mouthfeel is foamy, medium thin. Overall this is an outstanding IPA, a unique experience, and rewarding if you like very bitter ales.

My family does an annual trip to Sun River, OR and the "Bend Ale Trail" is one of my all-time favorite activities while there. My favorite brewery next to the easy choice (Deschutes Brewery) is 10 Barrel Brewing Co. . . And their semi-produced Apocalypse IPA is a great addition to the NWPA movement. . . I actually believe it has more of a bitter bite than its advertised 65 IBU's and am not wowed by the aroma/fragrance, but the color is brilliant and tastes of an all-natural IPA. . . Give or take 4 bucks for a 22 oz bottle, this is one of the better go-to's out there. . .

T - Bright and crisp lemon flavor, light grassy tones, cracker malt.
M - Fresh light and bright feeling beer.
O - Really good aroma, love the lemon in this beer, lemon is a weakness of mine.

A - coppery body.white head. Fairly clear but not crystal.

N - light hop smell. Pine over citrus.

T - bitter hops over toasted malts.

M - fair enough. Kind of syrupy?

O - kind of Mehetabel for an Ipa. Something called Apocalypse should probably be a little more world destroying... but its a fair, rather drinkable beer.
