BEER INFO

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

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Year-round

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

This is how citrus is supposed to be integrated into a meaningful IPA. I was blown away by this ale. Layered taste that unfolds new flavors that never lose their relation to the malt supported hops.

All hail the once and future king of commercially available, easy-drinking Northwest IPAs. Superb amber color, combined with a piney, citrus Northwest IPA smell. Excellent. Superb, balanced bitter, yet freshly hopped flavor that trails off to a deep bitterness. Delightful bitter, piney mouthfeel. This is the among best commercially available IPA in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest [i.e. - readily available in grocery stores]. Great flavor! Purchased regularly!
