joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2004
Bright, hazy orange-amber. Dense, fluffy light beige head. Good carbonation. Dewy citrus & apricot aroma. Medium body, not very resiny. Light apricot & moderately bitter hops combine against a decently malty background. Finish is dry & peppery.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Bright dark orange color. Hoppy aroma, hints of fruit. More of a subtle apricot flavor hidden under an IPA. Similar to the 60minute plus apricots. Typical hop syrup Dogfish flavor.

hotstuff (4353) - Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Bottle. Appearance was a medium sized ivory head that was creamy and smooth with fine-medium sized bubbles. Softly carbonated, transparent and an orange hue. The aroma was malty, moderately hoppy, sweet and apricots. The taste was bitter, sour, hoppy, and it had a lingering aftertaste. The palate was tingly and dry.

BUrunner (92) - Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Nice color with a moderate lingering head. Very apparent apricot aroma but fairly subdued in the flavor. Mostly in the finish/aftertaste. Very hoppy and enjoyable.

ericnixon (741) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Wonderful sweet, fruity, apricoty aroma on top of a beautiful dark copper color. Bittery flavor that is a little light on the hoppy, with a wet sweetness that fades in in the aftertaste. Another good one from Dogfish Head.

thedm (4984) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 13, 2004
This bottled brew poured a large head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body is a softly carbonated transparent copper brown color. The aroma is a fruit mix of hops and apricot. The palate was smooth initially then grew into a mild hop bite with a malty base. The flavor contained notes of apricots malts and hops. A more hoppy aroma develops as it warms as does the hops in the flavor.

jercraigs (8153) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2004
Lots of alcohol and apricot in the aroma. Nice hoppy balance with the the sweet fruitiness. Surprisingly tasty.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Clear copper with a puffy thick white head with green tint. Bold hoppy aroma with a touch of caramel malt. Body starts lightly sweet and hoppy with a more dry bitter finish. Apricots exist only momentarily imparting sweet sugars that mix with the caramel malt. More of an ipa than a fruit beer, and not as good as the 60 or 90 minute versions.

canary dog (680) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - MAY 15, 2004
This beer is a revelation! Thick and silky mouthfeel. A strong, citrusy hop presence begins. Just when you think the finish is going to be challenging, it ends as smoothly as such an initially prominent brew possibly can. Apricot presence is full and lush, but integrated into the beer. It is never a conspicuous component. Very well blended. The final finish is nothing less than an epic struggle between fruit and hops. It is almost bitter, and almost sweet. A terrific brew.

PisskyNight (13) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Appearance: great appearance: burnt golden hue with a full inch frothy white head which does not dissipate at all....magnificant carbonation bubbles throughout the buody Smell: I wouldn’t say that there is much of an apricot aroma....definitely sweet candy fruit though.... Taste: a bit of apricot but not much at all....great peppery hopped out pine feel to the palate...bitter and dry but not too much...definite sweetness kicks in at times.... Notes: it says IPA on the bottle and it definitely tastes like one...I see no reason to label the style as it is when even the bottle says its an IPA..and a fairly nice one as well...not maginificant....but a good session beer every once and a while
