A good dogfish. Not a huge fan of their products. Strong on the apricot and hops aroma. Good complex taste, compliments eachother well. Bitter aftertaste, as most dogfish are.

Pours a nice deep copper with a welcoming hop bitterness followed by a maltiness and a tinge of apricot. Nice beer to have in the early spring - refreshing but still heavy and substantial enough to make sure that every sip does not go unnoticed.

Bottle. Pretty dark clear copper with a 1 finger off white head. Aroma is dank hops with some apricot baby food. Taste is a bit better. Spicy dank hops with real juicy apricot flavor. Medium mouthfeel with strong carbonation. Thought this would be awful but it's not.

Tasty brew but doesn’t quite live up to a few of it’s counterparts. Nice dark color with plenty of carb bubbles to keep the slightly off white head sturdy.
Fruity apricot/citrus/pine aroma, but had a surprisingly roasted malt flavor and aftertaste, along with the bitter citrus. I found a 4 pack in Franklin Ky. Glad I tried it.lively,

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured into pint glass. Crystal clear amber color with a gigantic fluffy white head. Nose is Citrus hops and light fruit. The flavor is hop forward with a light but balanced caramel malt backbone. The apricot flavor is very delicate and mostly in the aftertaste. Pretty good spring beer.

This beer pours almost copper it’s so dark. A tan head of creamy foam sits on top and won’t fall. It just won’t. The nose is tart with apricot and floral with hops. The malt whispers a bit of sugar in your ear and a soft bit of bread. Taste is juicy and sweet. It’s a very sweet malt that gives a wonderful medium full mouthfeel. The beer is sticky and leaves behind a bit of that apricot to linger in the aftertaste. I want to say that I also taste some orange and some orange peel. The bitter is well done in this. It’s just enough to leave you with a nice IPA feeling from this decadently fruity beer.

Citrus aroma with spicy hop notes and bready grain notes. Appearance is amber with a white head with disappointing head retention, but good lacing. Apricot flavor comes through and is pleasant not bitter aftertaste from the fruit. Has a bready grain flavor with notes of caramel. Citrus and spicy hop notes also present. Mouthfeel is medium light with medium carbonation with a dry finish with a hint of lingering bitterness. Overall, it's a decent fruited ipa. The apricot goes well with the hops.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a classic gold color with a medium sized, lasting head. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus. Flavor is initially sweet with a rich malt backbone with subtle hints of mango mixing surprisingly well without overwhelming anything. Grapefruit and mango are also present before a slightly dry finish comes through. This is a good beer that reminds me a bit of Founders All Day IPA. Very tasty.
