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.

hazy amber, fine off white head, nice lace, sweet apricot aroma, nice bitter hop flavor with some lingering apricot sweetness to balance, it works quite well

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2007
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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2006
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.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2006
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.

JonnyC22 (164) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 25, 2006
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.

kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - AUG 12, 2006
on tap at the capitol city next to the Post Office museum. Delightful apricot color, and flavor. my first fruity IPA; it will be a tough one to beat. thoroughly delightful. my favorite beer of the RBSG pubcrawl.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 12, 2006
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.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 29, 2006
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...
