Beerathon (1421) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Some people bag on Dogfish Head because some people like to hate what’s popular, but the fact is that they rarely let me down. And this beer is no different. Amber pour with slightly creamy head. Sticky mouthfeel with light carbonation. The apricots are evident in the nose and flavor along with typical IPA flavors. Fun twist on the style

Pours a clear glowing orange with a decent cream-khaki head that settles to a thick ring and leaves some spotty, stringy, soapy lace. Nose involves toasted malt, fruit juice, lilac, citrus rind. Fairly sweet, somewhat bitter, a touch tart. Medium bodied, softer, somewhat oily, a bit grainy and tannic, finishing dry, fruity, herbal, a bit juicy. Nice brew, a change of pace IPA.

ESPh (93) - Branchburg, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Pours a nice copper color with a limited white head. Aroma of pine, apricots. The taste surprised me. I thought it would be sweet, fruity, and it is not. This is a good IPA with a pleasant, light, apricot flavor. The IPA stands up well, with bitterness of the hops offsetting the fruit.

Medium copper pour with a sizeable off white head. Floral, piney familiar IPA aroma with a very nice sweet apricot note. First one was a bit underwhelming - mostly IPA with a pleasing apricot angle. Nothing much. A few days later I let another one sit for 20 mins and the flavors really opened up. Sweet, heavy floral-apricot with a beautifully bitter balance. Not too complicated, pronounced natural apricot flavor that really delivered. Very much enjoyed this beer.

Listigovers (414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
Mixed aroma of fresh floral hops and some juicy sweetness. Pours copper with disappearing head. Taste is hoppy with some fruit aftertaste. Dry. Medium bodied. Not my favorite. Was expecting a bit more juiciness, don’t drink it too cold or you’ll miss it.

Pours a clear copper color with a white head. Aromas of citrus and hop. Taste of citrus apricots and hops. Not to bitter finish.

Maxbier (536) - 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
Aroma of citrus and a himt of malt and fruit. Pours a clear caramel color no head very little carbonation. Taste of fruit and hops dry light bodied with a slightly chalky finish.

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.
