3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with an off-white that eventually settles down to a film. Aroma is sweet - malt, fruit with some hops. Taste has a nice balance of malt and hops. There is a slight sourness in the finish from the fruit. Good beer but personally, I can’t drink more than one or two at time.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, hard to believe I haven’t rated this one yet, pours a clear dark amber red with a white head, aroma has a nice amount of fruit and apricot but has a touch of hops too, the flavor has a light amount of fruit on the front end with a finish of sweet malt, not great by any means but still drinkable.

Pours an amber gold with a thin white head. Aroma of bitter citrusy hops, tropical fruit, sweet caramel malt. Taste is bitter grapefruit, slightly sweet and fruity, maybe a touch of apricot. Not much apricot but a tasty ipa.

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.
