Very enjoyable beer. Definitely can smell the Apricot up front but the taste finishes with a hoppy flavor. Great beer for hanging out outside during the summer. Will drink again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh).
Pours amber with light head. Very mild sweet apricot aroma. Not sure if the combo hop/apricot flavor hits the spot, though.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours amber-copper with small head. Aroma of spicy, fruity citrus hops. There is a little fruit flavor in the malt base, but mostly the apricots add a fruity dimension to the hops. Tasty with a nice dry minimally bitter finish. Not as much aroma as I like, but still a delicious beer.

Very pleasant aroma of apricot and citrus. Taste is strong picot, citrus, grapefruit, bittersweet, some alcohol but blended nicely. A good beer to sip on in the spring or summer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours copper colored with a faint white head leaving some lacing. Aroma has sweet stone fruits, light citrus, pine and some resin. Taste is of sweet fruits, resin, some orange and some pine. Some apricot. Light to medium bodied and sticky. Finishes more sweet than bitter, on the bittersweet scale, with some length. Solid, tasty brew, without a lot of excitement.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, 2014 bottling. Pours fairly crystal clear deep orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Awesome aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops, apricot, and moderate malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of grapefruit, apricot, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, bread, floral, grass, light pine, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, apricot, orange peel, lemon zest, caramel, bread, floral, grass, and light pine on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance of citrus hops, apricot, and moderate malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent fruited IPA. All around great balance and complexity of hop, apricot, and malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Clear dark amber, head quickly drops to rim, thin streamer of lace. Taste is malt that shows apricot early in the palate, adding strong citrus hops in the finish. Apricot lends itself well to this conception. Very drinkable, not too heavy, but strong.

Hopping apricots this beer is refreshing! I don’t usually like ipa’s, but this one is light and fruity and thirst quenching.
