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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a off white head. Taste pine, sweet. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. A nice natural apricot flavoring and a proper, not overly done amount of hops. Good, but not as great as the majority of the ratings would indicate.

Draft pour. A fruity grapefruit apricot aroma. A lot of citrus and fruit in this one. Pretty light flavors. Not very IPA-ish in my opinion, but overall I enjoyed this beer.

12 ounce bottle. 2014 vintage. Bright amber orange color. Small creamy beige head. Lovely apricot nose melds with piney hops. Bittersweet toasted malt flavor upfront, with subtle tart apricot notes. Mid taste is more tart apricot with citrusy, peppery hops. Finish is bitter, dry and long on the palate. Fruity, hoppy and unique. What else would you expect from Dogfish Head?

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Has a nice dark golden/light amber color with a finger of off white head. Smells awesome! Got huge citrus, piney notes with a bit of apricot. The taste is a nice piney fruity taste. It's like a nice spring day around the woods with a fruit basket. The palate is medium and smooth. Nice job Dogfish Head! Another well made beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (1939) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2014
2014 edition. Nose is great slightly sourish with a nice Apricot aroma. The beer starts fruity-bitter. Nice floral hops there, but for an IPA with apricot juice I had expected more IPA. The mainpart is slightly apricot, bready bitter, a bit smooth. The aftertaste is medium to long, bready bitter, slightly floral and slightly sticky apricot.
I had expected something better. Even the "ground-IPA" is too bready with too less floral hops. The apricot-note is fine and not too sweet. --> 10/11/10/10
