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

I think the problem here is that I’ve had so many truly wonderful IPAs over the past few days. Pours blonde without ok head and lacing. Booze is pretty heavy in aroma and the beer doesn’t come together super well. Average carbonation. On tap at Black Back pub.

By far, my favorite 10 Barrel brew. Pacific Northwest beers often seem to focus primarily on hops. As an IPA freak, I love hops (whether for bittering, flavor, or aroma) but I believe it’s paramount to compliment those hops with a solid grain/malt bill. I think 10 Barrel did a great job at making a beer with an aggressive amount of hops. This beer is bitter and I love it and later hop additions did give it a nice citrus/pine aroma. But just as important, the malt flavor comes through giving the beer a subtle roasty flavor. Overall, the combo makes this IPA extremely drinkable and borderline addictive.

Zeswaft (1343) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2013
This is a super solid IPA. Well balanced with biscuity malts and robust citrus and pine hop flavors. One of the better PNW IPA’s and at $7.99 a six pack at Total Wine could make this a new go-to.

22415brewery (370) - redmond, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Pours a lovely dark golden, orangey-amber highlights, semi-hazy, thick cap of whitish foam. Citrusy hops are balanced by a slight fruity aroma, distinctly grapefruit, hop-coney forest, soil. Tastes very well balanced, a decent malt backbone that finishes dry and has a medium-light body. No overbearing caramel notes nor cloying sweetness. Lingering bitterness is delightful. Amarillo hops really play second fiddle to Centennial and Cascade in this beer. A very good example of the current standard for IPAs.

Koskela (234) - Marysville, California, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Nice bitter malty aroma with a floral hop smell. Its a blonde hazy ale with a white head. A nice hop flavor mixed with a good amout of malt. The bitterness comes in at the end but not overpowering. Its a medium/light bodied beer with a good carb. Worth a try.
