10 Barrel Brewing Co.
Style | ABV
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.

On tap at the new pub location...
A: Pours a golden yellow with hints of orange and a nice frothy two finger head, very creamy and almost stark white. Falls slowly and leaves pretty good lacing.
S: Big citrus hop aroma, definitely grapefruit, tangerine, very fruity overall, a little pine resin as well but dominated by the fruit. Smells pretty fresh.
T: Follows the nose a little too far here, the fruit seems to dominate the palate a little too much and doesn't come off aggressive enough in the hop profile. Needs to be a little bit crisper as well with all the fruit. Nice, but not quite balanced IMO.
M: Smooth, nice carbonation, dry finish helps this go down smoother.
D: For the style this is pretty drinkable, not a full on hop assault, which to its credit helps it go down smoother, but could use a little more hop to balance the flavors out.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours a clear dark amber almost copper color. Not a lot of head, but some frothy white lacing is left behind.
S: Smells of pine needles, ripe grapefruit, and some toasty brown bread. Nice aroma.
T: Whoa, didn't expect this! A piney assualt of hops up front with some bitter grapefruit following soon after. The middle has some breadiness, but is mostly pine and grapefruit hop flavor. The finish is of grapefruit rind and some light caramel.
M: Bitter, dry, medium bodied, well carbonated.
D: This is a fantastic IPA, thanks for shipping the growler mychal! This beer reminds me a lot like Blind Pig, though it is darker.
Serving type: growler
