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.

Very good west coast IPA. It has a citrus blend with the hoppy smell and taste you expect from this style. If you want to introduce someone to a west coast IPA you wouldn't go wrong with suggesting this one.

This is one of the better IPA's I have had recently and at $2.99 a bomber around NW CO it is very good value. I am pretty sure this is hopped with Amarillo, which is one of my favorite hops.

Look - Color is a clear gold with a thick white head. Good head retention and tons of lacing. It is has a west-coast look foreshadowing a lighter grain bill which I prefer.
Smell - is good but underwhelming compared to some of the top notch IPA's, could be stronger.
Taste - is awesome (and would be better with stronger supporting aroma). Spicy, piney and citrus bitterness explodes on the palate only slightly balanced by a light malt backbone. I get some major grapefruit!
Feel- Finishes with a drying bitterness on the back of the tongue. light, crisp and dry.
Overall- A very good IPA and my first beer from 10 barrel. I know they are now the "enemy" after being acquired by AB-Inbev but at the price point I wanted to give them a try. If I try and remove the bias of their new ownership - then I come away with it being a truly a great IPA.

this is actually pretty good and, like some other 10 barrel beers, seems to hold up pretty well with some age. not too complex, but has a great aroma and light/fruity bitterness that will strike a chord for fans of this style. simple but solid.
