4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Moderate head with good lacing over a caramel colored beer. Aroma is like an ipa, no apparent apricot. Smooth, moderate mouthfeel, certain apricot and lemon, bitter hops. Easy too drink and not too sweet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Hops and malt not much of a fruit presence.
Appearance- A dark yellow color with a small white head.
Taste- Has a hoppy taste but not overpowering. You can taste the slight fruit flavor.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with lots of carbonation. Has a small bitter aftertaste that many who don’t care for IPAs will approve of.
Overall- A really good solid Dogfish Head brew. I am not a super-hop head but I enjoyed this immensely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber/copper, small head.
Nose shows sweet malt, overripe apricot and some booze.
The apricot is stronger as a flavour. Some spicy hops too, along with a little hot booze and rich sweet malt.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint. Clear amber with off-white head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma is citrus and floral hops, some grainy malt, and a touch of apricot. Taste is initially sweet malt but turns to citrus peel hoppy bitterness and closes with apricot flesh on the swallow. Medium body, moderate carbonation, texture is on the slick side, fruity dry finish.

Poured from the bottle to a pint glass, this is a good beer, not sure if it is an IPA though. Lots of good flavor but none of them are hops. Maybe apricot juice neutralizes them, I dunno but it’s 7%, different, and very easy drinking, just don’t think hop should be in the name. Expectations can be a mf sometimes.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"great interplay between the sweet apricot and the immense hop aroma and flavor. WAY more than your average fruit beer, it’s what I wish all fruitees tasted like. similar to an ipa in style, big hoppy afterbite, with the fruit up front. Great on the palate. 4/09 - a little more sweet malt under the huge hops and fruit than i remember. great finish after a sub-par cherry ale. same scores. "

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
10-OCT-2014, bottle @home, from Kihoskh.
Almost clear, dark golden with lasting, lacing off-white head.
Hoppy aroma. Grape fruit and exotic fruit. Taste the same. Some spice, citrus, apricot, and malt. Touch of sweetness, very bitter. Nice creamy, medium body.
Really an IPA. Funny that this can end up in another category than IPA.
