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.

Golden orange with a bubbly tan head. Slight haze. Heavy lacing. The aroma is light tropical fruit and citrus. A bit of caramel malt and melon. The flavor is very resinous hops; pine, grapefruit & tropical fruit. Crisp and dry. A very good beer.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into an IPA glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid finger of off white head which settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A juicy and earthy hop forward aroma with a scent of citrus and pine. Upfront citrus hop scent of grapefruit, orange, tangerine, melon, and mango. Earthy hop hints of pine and grass. Malt hints of caramel, grains, and cracker with yeast. A solid hoppy aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy and earthy hop driven taste with notes of citrus fruit and pine. Juicy citrus hop notes of grapefruit, orange peel, melon, mango, and tangerine. Earthy hop notes of pine resin and grass. Backing malt notes of caramel, cracker, and grains along with some yeast. A pretty solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and fairly oily with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty good IPA. Nice citrus and pine flavor.
