UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 Pours a beatiful murky red/orange body, huge white bubbly head. Aroma is full of hops and fruit. Flavor is hoppy and fruity at the same time, great plend. The bitterness of the apricots blends nicely with the bitter/fruity hops. This is great stuff!

Bottle. Now that’s different. It’s an IPA. It’s a fruit beer. It’s interesting. Good hop bitterness, apricot is def there. This is decent, but I wouldn’t have it every day. All ’dem apricots gettn’ in the way of a good IPA.

Donde esta los lúpulos o los albaricoques I mean it is a decent beer from Dogfish Head, I didn?t notice either hops or apricot. Not bitter or sweet. Just there. It was a smooth and easy drinking beer.

Crystal clear, lightly carbonated and garnet colored with little head. Aroma of fresh bread, apricot, alcohol, butterscotch. Rich body with a clean slightly bitter finish and delicate apricot flavor. Mild caramel flavor with a moderate hop presence displaying some citrus and spice. Subtle and well balanced ale. I was expecting a more aggressive rendition.

Golden orange pour with a slight head, but very little aroma (at least not the apricot I was hoping for). The taste was similar in the lack of apricot, but there was enough there to offer a nice balace with the hops.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Bottle, clear, off white head. Aroma of apricot and fruity malt. Nicely malty with plenty of hop flavor and bitterness. Gentle apricot flavor. Almost like some English yeast strains with the fruityness. Decent, but not really something that I’d buy (and I didn’t).

Real good seasonal. I enjoyed the good amount of hops and strong apricot flavor. Just the right touch of sweetness. Like a Magic Hat #9 on Steroids!!! Purchased at Glen Rock Bottle King

Poured an orange color with a large head. Aroma is hoppy with a small amount of apricot. The flavor was of Apricots and hops fighting over dominance. To me this was not a good mixture. Almost like a hoppy cider.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2005
I liked this. Great golden color, great hops like a DFH 90 minute, great finish, but sweet apricot notes not present in normal IPAs. DogFish, of course, has no need to be normal.

Interesting beer, clear orange body with a large head that quickly diminishes. Aroma is hoppy with apricot and peach note. Starts a little sweet with apricot and then moves to a dryer bitterness before leaving a sweet sticky flavour in the mouth. A little to sweet for my liking.
