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

12oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a rich copper/amber w/ a big frothy white head, leaving behind webs of lace.

Aroma is fruity, earthy, almost perfumy. Not your typical IPA.

Taste is a delicate balance of caramel and pale malts, and bitter/floral hops.

Mouthfeel is soft, medium-bodied, surprisingly dry finish.

Overall a unique IPA, balanced, well-crafted.

22oz, no date but certainly fresh
Unmarked Riedel tulip

A: Nice color, clear bright orange. Two fingers bright white head. Good carbonation. Sticky lacing.

S: Nics bouquet on this: citrus, over ripe peach, mango, etc. big fruit. Light malt.

T: Very nice beer. Upfront bitterness, not totally agressive. Really just a balanced brew. Great hop character: sweet fruit and some light pine. The malt bill marries great here. It's near perfect balance to me....but I could be wrong. Finish is great. Almost empty.

M: Light medium.

Pours a light gold with a one-finger head into my glass. Lacing on the edges. Nice colors overall.

Jimmy said so, eh? Well, he didn't tell us what kind of hops were used. I'm guessing they're of the NZ type. Citrus mango tango?

Flavor confirms the aroma. It's not your usual pine/grapefruit affair. Refreshing. Not much dough.

Lingering dough and citrus notes make up this ale. At 6.8%, it drinks like something much lower in ABV.

I think I'm falling in love with Oregon and its' marvelous beers. I give 10 Barrel mad props for putting out such an enjoyable IPA.
