Draft. Bronze color with off-white head and some lacing. Malt aroma. Tastes more like an amber ale. Apricot not all that noticeable; hole flavor underwhelming. Overall, disappointing, especially for Dogfish Head.

Clear brown. Not a whole lot of flavor. For really notice the apricots. Definitely drinkable but nothing special.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Deep orangey-gold pour, medium off-white head. Nose is caramelly malt, some grain, and dried apricot with a hint of wet cardboard. Mouth is more of the same. I dig me some DFH brew, but this particular one is average at best. Just an FYI... this is not a Fruit Beer. Besides being misclassified (this is an IPA) ’fruit beer’ is the stupidest (and laziest) fucking category on RateBeer.

Pours an amber-golden with a creamy light tan head. Tangy nose. Full, soft mouthfeel with some scrubbing carbonation. I pick up the apricot flavor. Some citrus gets involved as well. A little confusing on the palate, but not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber pour, quick white head. Nose is caramel malt, whiff of alcohol. Bitter. Middle is malt backbone, very soft apricots, something vaguely vegetal. Finish shows bitterness from alcohol and hops. Not my favorite Dogfish offering.
