2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh.
Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on tap on 7/15/06 at the Capitol Hill location: Pours a clear golden bronze with a thin-lacing wispy white head. Fresh, fruity apricot aroma floats above a subtle crystal maltiness and some mild floral hops. Body starts with some crisp fruitiness turning more muddled and very buttery toward a dry finish. The fruit character is nice, but the buttery flavor has got to go.

On tap at the Postal one of these pubs. Deep golden color with a sticky head. The nose is all apricot with a pleasant fresh fruit smell. Apricot dominates the flavor as well with the apricot sweetness balanced in the finish by a long hop bitterness. This is one of those fruit beers where the fruit feally just takes over the beer. If you like apricots, here’s one for you.

Draft @ Capitol City Capitol Hill
Amber color, thin head and nice lacing. Nose of apricot, bright and up front with a bit of citrusy hops complimenting it. The flavor is nearly overpowered with the fruit, a bit of malt shines through. Tart finish, a bit too much extract perhaps? Even apricots don’t taste this...apricotty.

A dark orange beer with a nice beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of apricot, and so is the flavor, though with a dry, OK bitter end, but still with strong notes of fruit lingering around. A bit too much apricot for my liking.

Very fruity, but still hoppy enough to retain its IPA status. Had this one a couple of years ago; can’t wait to get back and try it again.

on tap at the brewpub. pours a golden peach color. thick cream-color head. apricot scent. fun lacing. flavor has a big apricot start but finishes with a crisp hoppy end. no mid-palate, just a lot on either side. a rare example of an IPA with fruit extract.

Chill haze orange, creamy off white head. Straight up fresh apricot nose with hints of grassiness. Very fruity throughout, but sweetness stays in check with a nice back end hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry, semi-bitter, fruity finish. A good summer thirst quencher...
