BEER INFO

Brewed by:
10 Barrel Brewing Co.
Oregon, United States
10barrel.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This IPA was formally known as Sam named after its hops; simcoe, amaarillo and mosaic, but we were told this would be a trademark issue with a large craft brewery out of the north-east, so we had to change it. We cycled though a bunch of generic names; Bob, Tom, Dick, Dan, Carl, Frank until we finally arrived on the perfect name for this IPA...Joe.

Single 12oz purchased at the COOP... Pours a mostly clear golden with a long-lasting off white head that leaves behind great lacing. Bunches of tropical fruity hoppiness with a tangerine backbone on the nose.. Flavor is not nearly as hoppy as expected, a fruity/mineral note reminds me immediately of the Flintstone vitamins my Mom made me take when I was a kid.. Hop flavors are mainly on the finish .. Not nearly as bitter as most PNW IPA's... Surprisingly drinkable.

12oz bottle from a $9.99 sixer. Hazy orange color, good head and lacing. Aroma is nice, peaches, apricots, very fruity hops. Flavor is very fruity but with a touch of pine, doesn't quite match the smell but still pretty good. Overall a good IPA, I'd buy it again even if it is an Inbev product.

Bottled on Feb-2-2017.Pours into a nonic a honey tinged golden with a thinner but well sustained bone white head atop.Big pineapple and juicy mango notes in the nose,they really jump out at ya.Nice hop complexity on the palate starting out with a big shot of tropical fruits than a malty caramel/biscuit element with some sharp Amarillo's in the finish...even a hint of white pepper.I have only had a few 10 Barrel beers I'am glad to see more quality left coast offerings here in NC.

12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper gold with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is tropical fruit and floral resiny hops.

The flavor is bready malts with sweet fruits and lots of very bitter floral resiny dank hops with slight onion. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, a very hoppy IPA but the floral onion doesn't work for me.

L: burnished gold, mild haze, bubbles rising moderately fast. A 2" cream colored sticky foam cap with good retention perches on top.

S: tropical fruit and some light bread crumb. Hop aromas are medium and malt aromas are medium to medium low. The beer has a clean fermentation character.

T: fruit, tropical fruit, guava, and citrus. Moderately low sweetness enhances the fruit flavors and gives way to a lingering hop bitterness. The above average bitterness has a citrus rind character and is not harsh.

F: The body and carbonation are medium. The carbonation is soft, without much prickle and does not wash out the hop flavors.

O: I enjoy the hop treatment and the balance between the hops and the malt.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into an IPA glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big two finger white head that slowly settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with a scent of citrus and pine. Citrus hop scent of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon, melon, and apricot with pineapple. Earthy hop hints of pine and grass. Malt hints of grains and cracker with yeast. A pretty solid aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and earthy hop driven taste with notes of citrus fruit and pine. Juicy citrus hop notes of grapefruit, lemon, orange peel, apricot, and melon along with some pineapple. Earthy hop notes of pine resin and grass. Background malt notes of grains, biscuit, and cracker with some yeast. A pretty nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and fairly oily with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty good IPA. Nice juicy citrus and pine flavor.

Litchi litchi litchi litchi all the way, baby. If you have never tried litchi, you should and tell me, amiright? This is litchi in a beer. That is honestly all I can taste, I am so amazed.

This tastes and smells almost like a fruity litchi cocktail to me. No hint of the 6.9% abv. Smell is amazing.

On tap.
Nice fruity aroma and flavor. Moderate bitterness with above medium hop flavor. A bit more grapefruit bitterness in the aftertaste than I prefer.
