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. HOPS: Horizon, Centennial, Amarillo, Cascade Bu: 65 ABV: 6.5% Malt: 2-row Pale, Victory, Crystal

Tap at Quinnís in a bumped pint glass. Golden orange with emphasis on orange. White frothy full finger head. Aroma is standard IPA with hops, pine, and citrus reigning supreme. Taste is highly hop forward with bitterness and pine cone coming through in full force. Oily mouthfeel. Lingering aftertaste almost like a vine of hops. Refreshing and bright in flavor but relatively straightforward. Nice enough effort from an unfamiliar brewery.

rosenbergh (8273) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Draught at the 10 Barrel, Bend, OR.
Clear golden colour with a tiny white head. Fruity sweetness, mild bitterness and mild sweet maltiness in the aroma. Fruity and piney hops, mild bitterness and some sweetness in the flavour. Not bad but boring.

Apocalypse IPA isnít just for the end of the world. Which is a good thing since this beer emits a smell of cherries, hops, and tropical fruits that is to die for! Its light golden color comes with a dash of a reddish tint and is topped with just the tiniest bit of foam. It starts with a short, bubbly attack up front but that fades almost immediately into a subtle, easy to drink beer. The malts and hops working in perfect harmony. Itís no wonder that this is 10 Barrelís flagship beer. The cherries and fruit come out the somewhat in the beer but even their tastes are rather subtle and just there to help take out the hop-sting. Nothing is overpowering, nothing overwhelms your taste buds. It all just works in this awesome symphony of flavor. The bottle says that Apocalypse has 70 IBU but itís so smooth, and goes down so easy, that it was hard to believe there were any hops in this beer. Even the aftertaste of this beer was pleasant. There was no alcohol burn (itís only 6.5%), there was no hoppy bitterness, only a sweet, semi-fruity flavor. However, towards the bottom of the glass, the hop-sting begins to show itself. The vast majority of the beer is really easy to drink and has very little bitterness...but those 70 IBU did show up at the end. Not that it took anything away from the beer in my mind.

(Bottle) Not too bad. Nice and fresh but a little overly-bitter. Iíd say a fairly average IPA.

Part of the seasonal 12-pack that is on shelves around the valley... Poured into my little CC goblet.. the brew is slightly hop hazed orange.. only okay retention with a good head. Nose is good citrus zest... slight caramel malt.. maybe some pine in there. Pithy citrus... tangerine? and some piney hops... sorta oily and yummy... a touch too much malt for my liking, but it is a minor bitch.. Nicely balanced PNW IPA... I dig it overall, but it could stand to be a touch drier on the palate.
