3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into Tulip glass
A: Pours with a half inch head. Dark Orange like a orange tootsie pop when you start eating it haha
S: Floral hops and slight apricot
T: starts malty, then maybe the slightest apricot, then hoppppppps, then slight alcoholic.
M: Medium. Carbonation medium, kinda dry
Overall: Not as much apricot as i wanted. I believe if you are going to incorporate a ingredient into the name, it better stand out

Poured from bottle into Crate and Barrel craft glass. Pours a clear copper with a slightly off white head that settled to a quarter inch layer that stayed all the way down. Plenty of lacing. Lots of champagne-like bubbles. Aroma is hoppy, fruity. Definitely get the apricots when sipped. Was worried the apricot would be overpowering but it’s subtle. Much more bitter than I expected, but not at all unpleasant. Full somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Plenty of soft carbonation. Very nice!

Bottle (12oz): Bought at Full Throttle Bottle. Nice refreshing IPA. Pretty sweet and middle of the road hoppieness. Amber. For me the apricot was subtle not dominant.

Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph.
Pours coppery amber with a medium, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has fresh apricot, quite dry, grapefruit, red apple and pine. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good fruity tartness at first, apricots aplenty, oranges. Nice caramel and doughy malts. Good dryish and lingering bitterness. Very fresh. I like.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
finger white head that does not last, soapy bubbles, amber-copper color, clear, slight lacing. Aroma: citrus, apricot, floral, caramel, resin. Palate: medium body, bitter lasting finish, sticky texture, average carbonation to lively, dry finish. Taste: super complex, sweet malt pushes through, with a building apricot fruity sweetness underneath, giving way to a nice hoppy bitter finish. Overall, taste balance on this beer is amazing, usually not a fan of apricot beers, but this is the best I have ever had.

Pours a beautiful bright copper with some white lacing. Nice apricot aroma with some fresh hops; the first sip is fruity sweetness that finishes with a bitter kick. Complex and refreshing...well done.

Dark amber orange with foamy lacy beige head; aroma is hoppy with cedary notes and some hints of sweet fruit; Flava upfront is strange at first: hop bitter, peatyish funk and some notes of tangy tart fruit; feels light with fizzy bite; finishes dry very bitter with notes of soap

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a one finger fizzy off-white head that faded pretty quickly. The aroma is a mix of apricot, leafy floral hops, and slightly sweet caramel malt. The flavor is pretty well balanced between the fruit and the hops, with the fruit winning out a by a bit. Finishes on the sweeter side with some caramel and toasty malt. Some lingering apricot notes. Medium bodied, rather sturdy malt backbone with fizzy prickly carbonation. Not a favorite from their lineup, but it was nice to revisit it after not having it in years.
