3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A sweet fruity ipa. Amber color, aroma of piney hops and apricots. Flavor is similar with an addition of malty sweetness and roundness. Well balanced with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied and quite good. A more substantial ipa than the apricot ale that magic hat brews.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts reasonably well, and leaves a little lacing. Dried apricot, toffee malt and resin hops make up the aroma. A mixture of dried apricot and strong citrus hops introduces it, with a sweeter apricot flavour joining caramel malt in the mid-palate. Sweet citrus hops finish it off. Not bad, but I have to say I’m still not 100% convinced on apricots as a beer ingredient.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Love the rabbit on the label. Pours clear amber with a small white head. Nose is full of sticky sweet apricot, quite resinous, with caramel, brown sugar and stewed raisin in there. Some pine and apricot clearly take the focus with moderate toffee and sticky sweet and stewed fruits playing a part. Drinks easy enough but nothing special
