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

Rated 3/29/13. 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark gold color with middling clarity. The head is an impressive looking four finger (via aggressive pour) offwhite shade. Retention here is quite strong, and as the head slowly recedes, plenty of lacing is left on the glass. S: Big grapefruit here on the nose. A bit of malt sweetness breaks up all the hops, but ultimately, the pine, black pepper, and grapefruit qualities from the hops win out. T: Similar to the aroma, the dominant flavor on the palate is grapefruit-derived hop flavors. I half-expected an upsurge of bitter, piny hop flavors on the back end, but no. The bitterness is really well restrained here, seemingly replaced with savory, nonintrusive caramel malts and bright citrus peel. Nonintrusive is the key word here - to me, an overt malt backbone can kill an IPA worse than excessive hop bitterness can, and this strikes a balance between the two aspects. As it warms up, the flavor really takes on a savory, herbal bend to it, especially on the finish. M: The texture features good dryness, however it could be a bit lighter in my opinion. Still, I like the lack of palate wrecking bitterness here. I’d almost call it ’soft’ - but not quite. O: What a pleasant surprise! I wasn’t really expecting too much here, but I’m honestly impressed with this offering. This is a great example of a ’balanced’ IPA.

teamsale (69) - Washington, USA - APR 21, 2016
Poured from 12 oz bottle. Wonderful aroma of fruity hops. Nice multi-hop flavor isn’t overly complex. A lot of lemon in this one, could be really good with a little less. Long lasting bitterness disguised by the lemon. Certainly better than average.

jnkor (352) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2016
Aroma is sweet and floral. Reminds me of jam. Looks clear-ish yellow orange with a white head. Taste is hoppy and sweet but not cloying. Hoppy but drinkable. Finishes nicely.

coachd (493) - Missouri, USA - APR 8, 2016
Juicy fresh hop aroma. Earthy. Dark for an IPA with a bright white head. Good balance, sharp clean hop bite with some sweetness up front. Hoppy citrusy aftertaste. Well done by 10 barrel. This is an easy to get IPA that is actually good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Bev Mo Sunnyvale. Unclear gold color with a thick, frothy, off white head. Pine, resin leads the way with plenty of citrus as well. Minimal sweetness, mostly hop bitterness. Malt presence of fairly light. As it warms, citrus becomes stronger, taking over for the pine. Pretty solid IPA.

Pours a light copper color with a citrus and pine aroma. Taste is crisp and dry with a firm bitterness after the swallow. The toasty aftertaste disappears quickly leaving a bitter bite.
