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, it’s a bit dry. D: This beer wasn’t quite as bad as I was expecting. While it was too sweet, it still had a fair amount of balance.

(Bottle) Pours a copper color with an off-white medium-sized head. Has a hops and fruit bouquet. Flavor of mild hops and dried fruit. The apricot began to appear towards the end of the glass.

bhensonb (12048) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 12, 2007
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.

argo0 (11913) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 17, 2004
(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.

thewolf (11369) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2014
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.

Bottle from Lithy, thanks! Orange brown color. Grapefruit, red berries, flowery and oily hops and especially apricot in the aroma. Hopbitter, slightly medecinal yeasty flavor with apricot. Surprisingly dry, oily a touch of malty and fruity sweetness. Plesant brew.
