3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Hayduke. Clear and golden with active carbonation and a fluffy white head. I put my nose to it and grab a face full of citrus hops. This screams west coast IPA. Lemon, oranges, mangoes. Lesser caramel. Flavors resemble the flavor with grapefruit and more malts. Bitterness is certainly noticeable and tends to grow. Cracker notes catch me by surprise. Throw some pine into the mix. The feel is somehow oily and smooth. This beer seems to border on being out of control with malts trying to hold a rebellion. However, the hops stomp that down perfectly and all is well in Apocalypse land.

In short: A clean juicy citrusy (apricots mainly) golden IPA. Good.
How: Bottle 12oz. Withing one week after purchase.
The look: Clear golden-amber body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is classic citrusy hops with a dominant apricot juice character. The attack is a bit sweet with a taste that is white head dipped in sweet apricot juice. Bitterness level is medium adding a sharp white grapefruit flavor to the apricot juice. Very clean beer. Tasty old-fashion American IPA. Yet another beer named Apocalypse, and I donít even know what this word really means, and I donít care that I donít know anything about the apocalypse, itís not the end of the world.

Bottle in the hotel mug. Thick white cap reduces to a smattering of volcanic rock bubbles. Aroma is fantastically floral, pine, peach, biscuit, and caramel. Taste is pine resin, grapefruit citrus tartness, balanced by caramel malt, and straw-like dryness. Lingering pine sap tingle.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow golden with a little head that leaves nice lacing. Smells of citrus, banana, lemon and pineapple. Lots of hops, somewhat bitter with lively carbonation, full body and a short clean bitter and somewhat sour finish. Interesting.

Welcome the Apocalypse from 10 Barrel. It is worth the reckoning. This IPA pours a translucent golden color with a white cap and tight lacing. Aroma if pineapple and other fruits (mainly citrus). The palate is greeted with a refreshing blend of citrus fruits with notes of orange and hops galore. I love this IPA. Now on the lookout for more from 10 Barrel.
