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

I did not like this beer. I normally drink stouts so consider this in my opinion. The description is spot on, pine resin with a hint of citrus, nasty! Chew on a pine branch and you will get what this taste like.

look: 1 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A: Pours an orange color, huge head like most of the glass huge...about 5 finger widths.
S: Smells like an English IPA, maybe Kent Golding hops? Slightly earthy/grassy
T: Slight grassy hoppiness, not much malt balance here.
M: Too overcarbonated, light bodied beer
O: You shouldn't have to wait 5 min for the head to go down so you can drink a beer....seriously overcarbonated. The taste really wasn't impressive at all either...probably wont get this again.

Poured from a 22 into a tulip

A - Light copper, thin foamy head, lively carbonation

S - Pine hops and medicine on the nose

T - Finished quickly, no lingering taste. Quite unimpressive profile. Alcoholic and tinny. Grapefruit appears after a few sips. Grassy. Finish is truly lacking, even watery.

M - The beer itself is creamy but with the sharp carbonation it just doesn't mesh to well for me.

O - Of course I wished for this beer to be great, while it is not terrible, I don't think I would purchase a 22 again. However, I would try it on tap for draughtness sake.
Too alcoholic to be quaffable. Leaves the back of my tastebuds puckering.
katelovesbeer is sharing the 22 with me, not reviewing on the site tonight, but does like it. I may be alone in this one?

Pint glass from tap

Look: Couple fingers of head is retained nicely. Hazy gold in color. Very nice lacing. Light carbonation.

Smell: A little grapefruit. Subtle piney resin. Small lemon citrus zest.

Taste: Tropical fruitiness up front. Grapefruit, orange, maybe a little mango, a little lemon. Bitter finish is a little astringent.

Feel: Medium to light body, watery even. Certainly a wet finish.

Overall: Meh. If I'm in serch of an InBev IPA, I'd rather go with Elysian's The Immortal. This beer looks pretty, but there isn't much to it. I will say it's not terribly offensive and can certainly be defined as crushable.
