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
Malt: 2-row Pale, Victory, Crystal

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Mad Elf tulip glass. Pours a light gold yellow with head and lace. Aroma of sweet malts & herbal esters. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich grains, light malts, minerals, white pepper, bitter herbs. Overall rich and flavorful, tasty for a hop head but a bit challenging. I personally prefer the big brother "Dub."

Bottle shared by Minderbinder, thanks man! Pours a really hazy golden with a small white head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of fruits and pine. Taste is moderately sweet and bitter with some dank hop flavors over a caramel background. Body is medium, carbonation a touch over medium and mouthfeel is a bit sticky and lightly juicy. Overall an OK "old style" IPA, I wouldn’t necessarily seek out again.

Fruity aroma . nice citrus notes. In fact, sprucy overtones with a slightly piney underbite. Surprisingly thin. Maybe slight grapefruit flavor? Comes thru kinda sour.

Living in Bend , where local IPAs abound, and trying to keep the politics out of my feelings about 10 Barrel selling to AB, Apocalypse is not always my first choice. In all fairness, however, it is a solid product that has a huge following. There is a dryness to the finish after the initial rush of hops and then the warmth from the ABV comes thru easily.

22 oz bottle from Mulberry Max into a pint glass. Clear golden orange appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of light hop resin, earth, spruce, light citrus fruits, biscuits and toasted grains. Similar flavor, adding some floral and herbal notes, medium hop bitterness and a touch of malty sweetness. Medium body with a pretty clean feel and a light dry finish. Solid IPA overall.
