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
Malt: 2-row Pale, Victory, Crystal

I ONLY drink a GOOD bitter IPA and this one is THE BEST I have ever had...and I have had many!!! If it is on the menu...It is in my glass...SUPER BEER!!! It has every quality a FANTASTIC IPA should have and more! I am very picky about my IPAís (I have even been know to refuse to drink a glass of beer and have a regular ice tea over a crappy one) and this one is NUMBER ONE in all categories!

A really well balanced IPA from one of the better central Oregon breweries. Not overly hoppy but enough to keep it very much in the IPA family. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Apocalypse IPA isnít just for the end of the world. Which is a good thing since this beer emits a smell of cherries, hops, and tropical fruits that is to die for! Its light golden color comes with a dash of a reddish tint and is topped with just the tiniest bit of foam. It starts with a short, bubbly attack up front but that fades almost immediately into a subtle, easy to drink beer. The malts and hops working in perfect harmony. Itís no wonder that this is 10 Barrelís flagship beer. The cherries and fruit come out the somewhat in the beer but even their tastes are rather subtle and just there to help take out the hop-sting. Nothing is overpowering, nothing overwhelms your taste buds. It all just works in this awesome symphony of flavor. The bottle says that Apocalypse has 70 IBU but itís so smooth, and goes down so easy, that it was hard to believe there were any hops in this beer. Even the aftertaste of this beer was pleasant. There was no alcohol burn (itís only 6.5%), there was no hoppy bitterness, only a sweet, semi-fruity flavor. However, towards the bottom of the glass, the hop-sting begins to show itself. The vast majority of the beer is really easy to drink and has very little bitterness...but those 70 IBU did show up at the end. Not that it took anything away from the beer in my mind.

Had the nitro version and it was super! Very well balanced and extremely drinkable. Plenty of malt to stand up to the fresh hops. The nitro enhanced the body. Hope I get to try it again.

A fantastic session IPA. Unlike other IPAs that have a strong grapefruit flavor, 10 Barrel instead went with a very pleasant pine aroma and taste. Full-bodied, but scary easy to drink. Make sure you have a ride home.

This is an excellent IPA. I had little or no expectations when I opened this beer. It was an after thought as I grab a few beer before I crossed the border. Boy, was I surprised. What a great IPA. Not too grapefruity, lovely aroma and a super smooth taste. A REALLY nice beer. You will enjoy this IPA.

Light orange hazy appearance. Very good hoppy flavor with a crisp hop finish. Drinkable but with great flavor

This beer smells really, really good when you crack open a bottle. On top of that, itís a quick, easy drink that goes down remarkably smooth. It has light, citrus-y tinges which help make it an enjoyable drink to savor. The only knock against it, Iíd say, is that itís always a bit hard to finish; as in, once it settles at the bottom, the remainder is a bit sharp. Overall, though, itís a really fantastic drink, something Iíd easily recommend. Hereís hoping the Anheuser-Busch buyout doesnít affect the quality of the brew!
