Good grief, Iíve never said anything on this beer. Okay, well here goes. For the most part, Iíve had this in pint glasses and I think once or twice in a snifter, but funny thing is, I think Iíve never paid attention to what it looked like in the snifter, hmmm......go figure (thereís probably too much Alaskan in me these days, hahaha, go figure) The appearance was always a nice amber to brown color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipates at a nice pace to a semi-filmy lacing. The aroma, woah, absolutely freakiní awesomely apricot to peachy goodness filling a super nice semi-bitter piney hoppiness running about the nose. The taste was mostly bitter but lead to a nice semi-sweet citrus-ness concerning itself to try to run itself about a nice aftertaste and ended up leading to a fairly same finish. On the palate, this one shows a nice sessionable quality running about it and still lends a hand to a nice carbonation running about its body and shows that there is nothing overbearing of the sorts on any end. Overall, good fruit beer that shows a decent bitter hoppiness trying to come out but ultimately maintains a fairly decent background to help make an absolute stellar Spring beer to have looking out on oneís deck watching the Spring Sun go down.

trippytbta (9) - California, USA - JUN 9, 2014 does not count
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 itís 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.

Brown amber, nice off white foam. Apricot, pine, sweet citrus, hint of caramel. Well balanced, apricot is well represented, strong finish, dry.

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.

HIGHB4LL (449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
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.
