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.

If you like sweet, you'll love this beer. It's an outlier. Bravo for new.
a) The head formed a lasting big pillow that cratered and lace as we descended. Over a big hazed light golden body.
s) Too faint, but solidly natural, unfussy: piney hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.
t) Starts with pine hops, west coast tinge, then sweetness arrives with candied marmalade, orange, and caramel.Malt balances bready, mid weight whole grain.
f) Crisp, smooth, medium body, carbonation, finish is clean. After-taste is hoppy and clean but sweet.
o) This is a rare sweet IPA that I'd recommend to finish the night with, or stock in cans,

Pours a light gold color, mostly clear. Big foamy lasting head.
Smell is light citrus and tropical fruit with piney notes.
I get a lot of pine resin and light tropical fruit on the taste. A light sweetness from the malt is also present.
Medium body with a crisp finish.

From a bottle poured into a mason jar, earthy and piney leanings, honey to copper in appearance, almost belgian,,,would be interesting to know what yeast strain they are using.

10 BARREL APOCALYPSE IPA 8/24/17

Bought a single because I thought I had remembered this brewery was well thought of and had never seen it in my area before. Bottled 12/16/16, which I did not notice until now. At this age I would not expect a whole lot.

Poured from the 12 oz,. bottle into a Lawson's stemmed tulip.

a: Translucent orange with an inch thick white head which receded to thick even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Fruit cup with some strength.

t: More pine than fruit, moderate hop bite draws attention over the malt and dry finish.

m: Medium plus, very good body and carbonation tingle.

o: Advertised as a NW coast IPA, not sure how that differs from your average west coast style but this one has more fruitiness with the pine. A solid IPA on the higher end of the spectrum, just short of a double, and to my thinking better than the total rating it has here. Is it one of those rare IPAs that ages well?
