Jcarb28 (97) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 Pours a orange/yellow copper color. Sweet, fruity aromas from head on the pour but not too much. Definite apricot taste mixed with hop flavors throughout the drink and finish on the palate. I also got apple malty aftertaste. Refreshing

chinchill (1700) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2014
12 oz, sediment-free bottle. Clear reddish-amber with a good beige head and very good lacing Feel: medium body; Crisp, medium+ carbonation. Smell: soft fruits not specifically apricot with a clear spicy hop presence. Taste: lightly spicy, APA hop level; solid malt backbone; fruity with subtle apricot O: interesting and worthwhile IPA variant.

Vestergaard (262) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2014
Pours Dark amber with a small, off White head. Aroma has apricot, lots of hops, caramel and a hint of licorice. Taste is rather sweet with sweet, ripe citrus, slight apricot and a little funk. Not as apricottish as expected, but still quite nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ARH (314) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a stemmed tulip. The initial aromas are grapefruit rind and toasted bread, but these subside (the bread more than the grapefruit) and is replaced by a strong caramel candy note, mild apricot, pine, and general citrus-like aromas. It pours a rich and oily, clear copper color topped by a big, creamy, slightly off-white head. A soapy-looking layer it retained throughout the drink, blanketing the majority of the surface and leaving a ample, sparkling bubble lace. Itís a mellow, but very present, medium bitter with a sneaky medium high sweetness. Itís slick and stick on the way down with a body that starts full, but mellows closer to medium by the end. Thereís lots of creamy soft carbonation with this one. Itís smooth and juicy, finishing with pine, toasted bread, caramel candy (sugary sweet), apricot, and a touch of soapiness. The lingering aftertaste recalls the sticky, sugary caramel and throws in some pine for good measure. Itís a long-lingering aftertaste that eventually turns dry and chalky..

wvhoran (86) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle. Crystal-clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel and apricots, grapefruit. Flavour of caramel malt, citrus hops, sweetish apricot. I was hoping to like this beer but it didnít quite work for me. A lower abv beer with a tart rather than sweet flavour profile would be my preference.

Tap at brewery. Amber pour with a white head. Apricot, pine, grapefruit, citrus. Medium body with good carbonation. Slight bitterness in the finish. Interesting

RRistow12 (229) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Tasted from draft. Pours a nice amber with white head. Aroma of apricot, orange peel, grapefruit and pine. Taste is definite apricot mixed with bitter hops. Actually blends quite nice. One of the best fruit beers I've had. Some pine notes and citrus fruit flavors. Medium bodied. Excellent for a fruit beer and above average for an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finhead (1151) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Clear, amber-copper pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma has an interesting mixture of apricot, herbs, and a touch of pine. It has a medium body with slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with just a hint of fruit and a slightly dry finish.
