10 Barrel Brewing Company Apocalypse IPA
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is 10 Barrel Brewing Company Apocalypse IPA. I sourced this beer while in Bend, OR at Broken Top Bottle Shop (here) and I can’t recommend them enough. If you find yourself in Bend you should check out their excellent selection.
From the 10 Barrel Brewing Company website: “THIS WEST COAST STYLE IPA IS OUR FLAGSHIP BEER. WE CAN TALK ABOUT IPAS AND HOPS ALL DAY BUT YOU BETTER JUST GIVE IT A RUN FOR YOURSELF.
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark golden orange with a thin white head and sticky lacing.
Aroma: Hoppy citrus and slight pine, sweet and biscuit malts.
Taste: Bready, biscuit and sweet malts balanced with citrus, grapefruit and just a touch of pine hops.
Overall: Wonderfully balanced and extremely easy to drink, 10 Barrel Brewing Company Apocalypse IPA is an exceptional NW IPA. There’s no wonder why this is 10 Barrel’s flagship beer. Weighing in at At 6.8% ABV I highly recommend this one for those who enjoy a stellar IPA.
