From the bottle... Excellent flavor...a little sweet, hoppy, but not too much to take away from the flavor...

Pours mostly clear browned orange with a minimalist head. Just a rim and light coating. Aroma is sweet biscuits and apricots. Taste is kind of underwhelming. Clear bready malt backbone with flavors of citrus hops and apricot. Astringent, boozy and somewhat bitter finish. Craft went into this beer, and it has some depth, but the result is just average for me.

Some people bag on Dogfish Head because some people like to hate what’s popular, but the fact is that they rarely let me down. And this beer is no different. Amber pour with slightly creamy head. Sticky mouthfeel with light carbonation. The apricots are evident in the nose and flavor along with typical IPA flavors. Fun twist on the style

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear glowing orange with a decent cream-khaki head that settles to a thick ring and leaves some spotty, stringy, soapy lace. Nose involves toasted malt, fruit juice, lilac, citrus rind. Fairly sweet, somewhat bitter, a touch tart. Medium bodied, softer, somewhat oily, a bit grainy and tannic, finishing dry, fruity, herbal, a bit juicy. Nice brew, a change of pace IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice copper color with a limited white head. Aroma of pine, apricots. The taste surprised me. I thought it would be sweet, fruity, and it is not. This is a good IPA with a pleasant, light, apricot flavor. The IPA stands up well, with bitterness of the hops offsetting the fruit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium copper pour with a sizeable off white head. Floral, piney familiar IPA aroma with a very nice sweet apricot note. First one was a bit underwhelming - mostly IPA with a pleasing apricot angle. Nothing much. A few days later I let another one sit for 20 mins and the flavors really opened up. Sweet, heavy floral-apricot with a beautifully bitter balance. Not too complicated, pronounced natural apricot flavor that really delivered. Very much enjoyed this beer.
