12 oz bottle pours hazy amber with a off white head . Aroma of malts, apricot, floral and pine. Taste is sweet, pine and a hint of apricot.

CelticBrew (801) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Pours from 12oz bottle a slightly hazy, deep copper color with a small, off-white head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma hints of apricot, floral hops, toasted buttery malts, grapes, and light spices. The texture is both thick and bubbly. This beer tries to be both an IPA and a fruit beer and fails to do either one very well. It is drinkable but rather disappointing. Not my cup of tea, no pun intended.

12 ounce bottle pours a deep reddish copper color with off-white to tan fluffy head that lasts a long time. Small amount of fruity aroma not really overwhelming. Light bodied high in carbonation. Nice balanced flavor with a bit of apricot at the end. Not really much of anything special. mediocre

Bottled. Golden honey hue with a ejite head. Aroma is hoppy and as you might have guessed, apricot. Taste is hoppy with the apricot coming through up front. Maltiness in the back. Nice ipa.

akoeninger (438) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2014
A sweet fruity ipa. Amber color, aroma of piney hops and apricots. Flavor is similar with an addition of malty sweetness and roundness. Well balanced with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied and quite good. A more substantial ipa than the apricot ale that magic hat brews. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rayaron (174) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Clear amber with no head. Aroma of date honey, malty, notes of apricots. Sweet malty flavor, notes of apricots, caramel, medium hoppy bitterness, light sourness, woody. Medium carbonation. Medium body. Sweet aftertaste.

ComradeK (1036) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts reasonably well, and leaves a little lacing. Dried apricot, toffee malt and resin hops make up the aroma. A mixture of dried apricot and strong citrus hops introduces it, with a sweeter apricot flavour joining caramel malt in the mid-palate. Sweet citrus hops finish it off. Not bad, but I have to say I’m still not 100% convinced on apricots as a beer ingredient.

maneliquor (3126) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Love the rabbit on the label. Pours clear amber with a small white head. Nose is full of sticky sweet apricot, quite resinous, with caramel, brown sugar and stewed raisin in there. Some pine and apricot clearly take the focus with moderate toffee and sticky sweet and stewed fruits playing a part. Drinks easy enough but nothing special
