3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. The aroma is apricot. Perhaps diluted with some hop. Hazy ripe stone fruit color with a white head that ringed. The flavor is apricot, but it is not overly sweet; the malt is balanced by the hop. Itís a play of sweet vs. bitter, and the bitter wins. The finish is fairly dry, and the bitter seems a bit like sucking apricot pits. Itís not a NW hophead IPA; itís just a standard IPA with apricot accents. Really clean and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a clear amber color with a fluffy (slightly) off-white head.
S: The nose is not as sweet as I was expecting. There is a nice amount of citrus, but the apricots are there and do give the beer a sweet nose.
T: The apricots are more pronounced in the flavor, especially as the beer warms. They are sweet and jam-like and only partially counteracted by some resinous pine.
M: The body is medium with a crisp carbonation and given the sweetness, itís a bit dry.
D: This beer wasnít quite as bad as I was expecting. While it was too sweet, it still had a fair amount of balance.
