Crystal clear amber pour. Medium to thick white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is very similar to 60 minute with a hint of additional fruitiness from the apricot. Flavor is also based on 60 minute, but apricot flavor adds a lot of complexity without being overly fruity. Accompanied by a variety if citrusy and floral hops. Some malty sweetness. ---Rated via iPhone

Pours Dark amber with a small, off White head. Aroma has apricot, lots of hops, caramel and a hint of licorice. Taste is rather sweet with sweet, ripe citrus, slight apricot and a little funk. Not as apricottish as expected, but still quite nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ARH (296) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a stemmed tulip. The initial aromas are grapefruit rind and toasted bread, but these subside (the bread more than the grapefruit) and is replaced by a strong caramel candy note, mild apricot, pine, and general citrus-like aromas. It pours a rich and oily, clear copper color topped by a big, creamy, slightly off-white head. A soapy-looking layer it retained throughout the drink, blanketing the majority of the surface and leaving a ample, sparkling bubble lace. Itís a mellow, but very present, medium bitter with a sneaky medium high sweetness. Itís slick and stick on the way down with a body that starts full, but mellows closer to medium by the end. Thereís lots of creamy soft carbonation with this one. Itís smooth and juicy, finishing with pine, toasted bread, caramel candy (sugary sweet), apricot, and a touch of soapiness. The lingering aftertaste recalls the sticky, sugary caramel and throws in some pine for good measure. Itís a long-lingering aftertaste that eventually turns dry and chalky..

Bottle. Crystal-clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel and apricots, grapefruit. Flavour of caramel malt, citrus hops, sweetish apricot. I was hoping to like this beer but it didnít quite work for me. A lower abv beer with a tart rather than sweet flavour profile would be my preference.

RRistow12 (219) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Tasted from draft. Pours a nice amber with white head. Aroma of apricot, orange peel, grapefruit and pine. Taste is definite apricot mixed with bitter hops. Actually blends quite nice. One of the best fruit beers I've had. Some pine notes and citrus fruit flavors. Medium bodied. Excellent for a fruit beer and above average for an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finhead (1147) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Clear, amber-copper pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma has an interesting mixture of apricot, herbs, and a touch of pine. It has a medium body with slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with just a hint of fruit and a slightly dry finish.

A - Dank orange weed. App - tangerine body with lively carb bubbles; frothy white head. crystal clear. T - bitter orange peel, sweet apricot, salty and kind of harshly bitter finish. P - thin to oily with lively carb; bitter and abrupt finish. O - lives up to its name, although the apricot flavors are toned down quite a bit due to aggressive hops. would like to see a juicier apricot flavor.

jkharper2007 (20) - Grovetown, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Aroma is nice, slight hint of bitterness sweet and fruity. Pours a dark golden color with a thick off white head. Lacing is great and head retention is decent. Apricot taste front and middle and hops on the end. Very palatable and smooth. Great beer, Iíve been skeptical when Iíve seen it but am pretty impressed. Great brew. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a dogfish head glass.
