nice lite bronze color and a clean apricot/peach aroma..very natural fruit taste,extremely refreshing. the mouthfeel is light to medium..the hoppiness is there,but well balanced with the apricot flavor.great hot weather sipping beer.be careful of the 7% alc. content.you can throw this down very quickly and be drunk very soon.

Maxbier (527) - Maryland, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Dark clear copper color with off white head. Very nice looking beer in the glass. Aroma of apricots and a hint of pine. Taste is like a good IPA (something like 60min) pairs with extra apricot flavor. Melds better than a shandy. Nice drink, a hint too sweet but forgivable.

Luvystypotables (904) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2015

12 oz bottle. 2015. It has a good way about it. The floral fruit note there and a spark note gives a nice kick then. Sweet but good sweet mostly; good maybe bittersweet even. Like the little bite there and the tight crisp notes that flourish.

Sample. Medium gold in color. Slightly watery. Not much flavor either from apricots or hops. Not an objectionable beer, but not much memorable about it.

Aroma is just what I expected; possibly a little sweeter. Apricot, DFH signature hop scent and some brown sugar. Beautiful amber color with a tiny amount of white foam. Hoppy, tasty IPA but other than a slight showing in the aftertaste, I cannot detect any apricot. False advertising - there is no way this should be classified as a fruit beer. Overall pretty good, but DFH has set the bar so high for me. More apricot please.

ChrisFields (87) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Pours amber with a nice two finger head. Aroma is malt heavy with light notes of tropical fruit on top. Taste is citrus. Apricot is present but subtle. Medium bitterness. Overall good but doesn’t really grab me.

Jared_Clifton (33) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Pours a light amber color with white head. Light body. Starts with a good amount of hop taste then a slight apricot sweetness. Finishes with a combination of both, another good dogfish head beer.

3/11/15. Growler from Whole Foods. Pours a nice dark copper w minimal head. Light fruity nose. Broad hop and tangy fruit mouth that leaves a bit of a buzz on the back center of the tongue. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught Amber color with small off white foamy head, slight apricot aroma, low carbonation, slightly bitter taste with apricot flavor, long finish. The apricot flavor is not very prominent.
