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. It’s 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. It’s not a NW hophead IPA; it’s just a standard IPA with apricot accents. Really clean and refreshing.

(12oz. bottle) Clear copper body with small beige head. Aroma is moderate sweet, floral, some apricot, light caramel. Taste is mild sweet, floral/herbal hoppy, the apricots present but very mild. Medium-full body with good chewiness. The fact that there are apricots in this one is a gimmick where no gimmick is needed -- a very good IPA on its own merits.

I overrated this one a little bit. I’d probably give it around a "4" now. Orangish pour. Crisp apricot taste. Very refreshing. Rated 3/11/04

Bottle poured a clear orange with a lasting amber head. Aromas of apricots and citrus. Palate was medium bodied and slightly resiny. Flavors of apricots, citrus and some carmel undertones with a smooth, bittersweet finish.

Bottle, bought @ Kihoskh, Cph.
Pours coppery amber with a medium, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has fresh apricot, quite dry, grapefruit, red apple and pine. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good fruity tartness at first, apricots aplenty, oranges. Nice caramel and doughy malts. Good dryish and lingering bitterness. Very fresh. I like.
