3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear copper with a finger and a half of white head that lingers and leaves mild lacing. Apricots are noticeable on the nose, but mango, peaches, and grapefruit are more noticeable, and all are followed by piney hops. Balanced on the tongue, with nothing overpowering. Medium bodied beer, but very easy going down, followed by a tropical fruit finish. Nice IPA worth picking up.

Not the best apricot flavor, though I can say it’s natural. Doesn’t taste much like a Pale Ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Appearance: Deep orange golden with a slight haze, and moderate off white foam cap.
Aroma: Fruity citrus and apricot is prominent, but also a dank, resinous hop character as well.
Taste: Rich caramel maltiness and tart apricot flavor, leading into a strong bitterness that isn’t sharp because of the malt base. Well balanced. Again, a resinous, almost woody hop character helps offset the sweet citrus flavors.
Mouthfeel: Medium with a moderate carbonation. No noticeable alcohol heat.
Finish: Lingering resinous bitterness, with a hint of apricot. Apricot is most prominent on the finish.
Overall: Really well balanced IPA, with a strong enough malt base to balance the intense bitterness. Resinous hop flavors do well to balance the fruity flavors.

Tap at Horse Brass. Very refreshing, citrusy aroma, bit of apricot there too. Taste is good, quite different, not so bitter. Good.

The apricot comes through and goes well with the hops they chose, which seem floral. Not very sweet. Clean yeast. Not bad.

On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Aroma of earthen work and caramel malts. Not much of the apricot or Cascade detected here. Pours a clear orange-amber with full white head. Taste is malty and muddled, with nothing really standing on display. Moderate bittering.
