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

Poured from bomber into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours an orange amber color with a two finger head of white foam. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of a grapefruit citrus and some sweeter fruit of a tropical nature (papaya, tangerine and mango) with some harvest fruit of apple and peach as well. Along with the nice fruity smells, comes a bit of a pine and grassy smell as well as some hay. Overall the aroma is quite nice.

Taste – The taste begins with a great grapefruit hop taste that is mixed with the sweetness of tropical fruits and harvest fruits that were present in the nose. There is a little bit of a doughiness upfront which fades as the taste advances and is replaced by some toasted bready tastes mixed with a little bit more fruitiness. While the fruitiness increases a bit in intensity, hop flavors of resinous pine and a bit of grass come to the tongue, leaving one with a rather flavorful and smooth hopped up taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the medium side in terms of thickness and chewiness with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the mix of fruity, dank and lightly toasted flavors the feel is fantastic and makes for one easy drinking but robust drinker.

Overall – I rather enjoyed this brew. It has a ton of different flavors that all melded together well. Along with the great nose and feel, the combination of attributes made for a very nice drinking brew.

Pours hazed golden with a thin white head that becomes a wide wispy patch. Spotted lacing sticks.

The smell is of citrus and lemongrass, spicy bread.

The taste isof grapefruit, grass with a sweet bread backing. Finishes with a grapefruity bitterness and a peppery spicing.

It is on the lighter side of medium bodied. Smooth. A refreshing bitterness lingers.

A pleasantly bitter IPA.

Had on-tap at Prospector's Pizza in Denali National Park. Poured into a pint glass.

L: Pours a medium golden color. Semi-opaque, with 2 fingers of off-white head. Generous lacing.

S: Floral and herbal hops mixed with pine and citrus.

T/F: Bread and biscuity malts up front giving way to a nicely balanced hop profile. West Coast, so lots of evergreen mixed with flowers and citrus. Resinous... generous carbonation. Finish was dry and smooth.

O: Solid west coast IPA and very much hit the spot. Went great with pizza!
