Very fruity - as expected from the name. Has a nice hoppy presence throughout - rather sour at the end. Fruit is all over the palate - but not in a nasty way.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2007 Pours deep, transparent orange. Short lived off white head that diminished into nice lacing. Fairly hoppy aroma. Subtle apricots in there. Flavor is smooth with no alcohol detectable. A somewhat underwhelming beer, but decent.

Interesting, you gotta give props to these guys at dogfish head, they are constantly breaking new ground and making interesting fun creations. I like it because of its interesting ness but not becauese of the drinkability. The colour is ruby red with a white frothy head and good lacing, Thenose has lots of hops with a sweet end and earthy presence. The taste is acidic and earthy , hops and little bits of apricots, much later get lots of earthy and hops/apricots. The body is fuzzzy.

THis is a nice hoppy fruit beer. The taste is a bit sweet then somewhat bitter from the hops. For fruit beers this is excellent, but for IPAs this is mediocre.

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Poured a clear light amber, with a very slight aroma. Taste was also very light with apricots in the middle masked by the hops and in the aftertaste. Then smooth mellow hoppiness at the end with minimal apricots underneath, with a sweet aftertaste.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - MAY 1, 2004
The color of clover honey with a thin fast receding head. Very subdued hop profile imo. Apricots were not evident.

omhper (20568) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2004
Bottled. Brownish amber, small head. Fruity, citric hop aroma. Sweet with a light touch of apricot and jam. Hard, clean, simplistic malt profile. Lingering bitter finish. Complex interplay between fruit and hops, but all this is beautful paint on a plain malt foundation.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Bottle. Appearance was a medium sized ivory head that was creamy and smooth with fine-medium sized bubbles. Softly carbonated, transparent and an orange hue. The aroma was malty, moderately hoppy, sweet and apricots. The taste was bitter, sour, hoppy, and it had a lingering aftertaste. The palate was tingly and dry.
