BEER INFO

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

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

Malty...above average, but not great...a bit of an unpleasant after-taste...this brewer, in my experience, usually has average results...this fits into that category

Kind of a cloudy look but mostly an earthy hop aroma with some hints of fruit and citrus. Full off-white head. Soft malt profile.
Nice full and soft feel. Well balanced drink. Some malt up front but hops from start to finish with a soft and grapefruit bitterness on the finish. Touch of warmth in the gut. More fruit from the hops in the flavor but still an earthy character dominates. Get little hits of hoppy excess (not a fan). Bitterness grows throughout the drink.
Fun, young, good looking, fit and active people enjoying the outdoors on the web page. Can others join the party?
Donation from younger brother. Many thanks.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a short head covering the surface and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of grapefruit hops are present in the nose along with hints of pine.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of citrusy and piney hops with hints of underlying caramel malts and a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is quite drinkable and isn't overly heavy on the palate or too bitter. I would almost call this sessionable if it was a little less than 6.8% abv.

Serving type: can

Aroma is sweet citrus/fruit and mild sweetness. The flavor is citrus/orange, malts, grapefruit, very slightly coarse and a mild hop resin/hoppy finish.

Draft at Rock & Brews in Paia, Maui. Good citrus and floral flavors to go along with mild bitter backbone. Easy drinking

Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is straw, head is bright white with fine bubbles, head presents 1/2 inch thick and then dissipates to solid top with some lacing on the glass sides.

Smell is bitter, simple hops with light citrus and pine, neutral malt aroma.

Taste is similar with crisp hop flavor of citrus and pine, a bit more malt character with light toast and hint of sweetness.

Mouthfeel is crisp, moderately carbonated.

Overall a good fairly clean ipa.

Bottle poured a little hazy, but looked yummy enough to ignore any aroma and get down to business. Drinkable but the notes of citrus were a little more than I prefer. Ate it with chicken wings and it was a surprisingly good pairing.

From a 355 ml bottle (dated September 26, 2017) into a tulip. Reviewed from notes dated January 29, 2018.

A-The beer is light honey in color with just a bit of haze when held in the light. A fat finger of nearly-white foam sits on top for about two minutes before fading out. The head is clingy and dense at first and leaves a chunk or two behind on the glass.

S-The aroma is an interesting hoppy mixture of fruit and dry, raspy bitter notes. On the fruit side, I sniff lime, lemongrass, some berry notes that I can't quite place. There is not much in the way of malts here, just a hint of pale bread and crackers.

T-The taste does not follow the smell as much as usual. There is a light sugary sweetness here and a bit of a paper flavor, both of which are likely a result of the beer's advanced age, but there is also a more pine-y and medicinal aspect to the hops. The beer still suggests lime and some berry fruit, but there is a hint of alcohol on the finish that amplifies the leafy side of the hops.

M-The body is light to medium in weight with an almost creamy carbonation. Drinks easy.

O-This beer sorta surprised me. I was expecting a run-of-the mill IPA, but Apocalypse packs some unique hop smells that you don't see everyday.
