Iím starting to apreciate IPAís. This one is quite lovely. It has a nice dark amber color, a IPA nose with a light apricot top note. The flavor is typical IPA with a

Super beer! Wow! Great stuff! Poured very very lively with a huge, textured foamy, rocky, light tan to off white head. not much lace though. the aroma is very interesting and alluring. Just enough natural apricot to entice you and then some real nice north west hop. the balance between the all of the ingredients is just perfect! Wouldnít really want to change a thing. Yum! Had it at Bodega tonight, downtown La Crosse.

Great taste and after taste as well. A Great addition to the Dogfish Head arsenal of beers.

Veighly taste like apricots. It tastes fruity like most good IPAís but I donít think I would have tasted the apricots if I hadnít been told it was there. Good IPA though!

Beautiful color and lacing and a subtle apricot scent, but itís definitely there. Itís definitely an IPA, with fruit, less-so a fruit beer, but a great beer nonetheless.

A specimen in terms of fruit beers. Dogfish head exerts the full extent of their brewing knowledge in this superb IPA made with apricot. Pours a deep copper color with almost no head. Smells of dried apricot, resin and citrusy hops. Smooth mouthfeel, slightly sticky from the fruit. Palate opens with apricot, progresses to a floral hop backbone and finishes cleanly with little bitterness.

A- A nice citrus aroma with just a tad bit of a spice element. A- Dark golden brown with a two finger head. T- A slightly aggresive IPA with a soothing hint of apricot P- Medium body O- Delicious beer, it balances beautiful citrus accent with a bold hop flavor. One of my favorites

Great visual beer with a thick full head. Aroma is very appealing with notes of apricot, pine, citrus, and hops. Well balanced flavor of apricot with a hoppy finish. Overall a great mix of fruit and hops.

Love this beer. Good abv at 7%. First drink/sip is pretty bitter (but a good bitter), after that you get the apricot aftertaste. I like this more than MagicHat #9. Awesome artwork on the labels, with the crazy looking rabbits.
