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

Pours a hazy amber with nice lacing white head. Aromas of lemon citrus and pine notes with some sweet malt as well. Very piney initial taste with lemon citrus flavors following. A sweet bread taste balances out the tart/bitter citrus. Very balanced and flavorful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Pour is slightly orange gold, mostly clear with a nice foamy white head that sticks to the glass. Aroma is beautiful pine and citrus character, some maltiness. Taste is citrusy hops with a balanced sweetness. The pine and bitterness really come through. Nice pineapple and grapefruit flavor as it warms a bit.Classic IPA, very smooth and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (3667) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very hazy amber color with a large white head on it. Nose is very floral and quite fresh, and reminds me a lot of spring. Taste is well balanced and not too bitter, and tastes pretty fresh, too. Good brew.

TempeCoyote (63) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Bomber sent from Idaho as a gift. Thin head with lacing. Pine and citrusy hops but unlike a lot of IPA varieties it has a pretty decent malt backbone that's a bit biscuity. A good mix. I think the 65 IBU range is the sweet spot for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: 8-oz. (I think) hotel glass From: Whole Foods in Boise, Idaho Price: $8.99 for a mix and match variety 6-pack Purchased: Dec. 19, 2013 Consumed: Dec. 20, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a honey orange color with 1-to-2 fingers of bubbly white head. Lots of bubbles coming up. Uneven sporadic lacing on the sides. Below average retention on the top. The smell initially reminded me of an orange creamsicle. Got orange, nectarine, some grapefruit and sweet floral notes. Very nice on the nose. Tasted not quite as explosive as the nose, but still good nonetheless. Got orange peel, orange, nectarine, grapefruit, pretty bitter, floral hops, citrus hops and tropical notes. Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Bitter finish. Very tasty beer. Would love to try it again.

12oz bottle from Bobís.

Pours a rich maize with a full white head that leaves extensive lacing along the sides of my tulip glass. In addition to pine, the nose presents a range of fruit: pineapple, lemon, and uncommonly, a powerful hit of strawberry. Juicy flavor, grapefruit and lemon, restrained cracker malts. Plenty drinkable.

Itís hard to knock it out of the park with a straight-ahead IPA these days -- too much competition out there -- but this is just the kind I like, juicy and aromatic, tropical fruit, not an overwhelming bitter oil finish, malts that know their place. A really nice offering for my first taste of 10 barrel.

poisoneddwarf (1716) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bomber bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Aroma is kind of stinky! It kind of smells like old socks along with faint grapefruit and vegetal offnotes. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a long-sustaining white head that leaves lace. Taste is not as bad as the aroma, but itís a really basic IPA profile. Weird.
