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

12 oz. bottle, pours a beautiful golden orange with a beige head. Aroma of apricot and hops in the background. Flavour is a great balance of apricot and pine hops. Very nice.

bhensonb (13995) - 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.

Tmoney99 (13344) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Draft. Brownish amber with small head. Aroma and flavor well balanced of apricot, bread malt and citrus. Easy to drink good brew.

Ratman197 (13106) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2006
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.

argo0 (13075) - 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.

Lubiere (12802) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2008
A golden ale with a thin creamy white head. An initial strong apricot aroma, very pungent, followed by a burned charcoal aroma, like burning wood. In mouth, an oily beer with an initial strong apricot, followed by bitter and clying fruit taste, unripe, green, then followed by the floral IPA hops. Medium bodied. Tasted in late nov. 2006.

(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.
