Apricot is the correct description... apricot color, apricot smell and apricot taste, though I believe this one falls closer in taste to an IPA than a fruit beer due to the strong hop presence. Rather nice and worth trying.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into a stemmed tulip. The initial aromas are grapefruit rind and toasted bread, but these subside (the bread more than the grapefruit) and is replaced by a strong caramel candy note, mild apricot, pine, and general citrus-like aromas. It pours a rich and oily, clear copper color topped by a big, creamy, slightly off-white head. A soapy-looking layer it retained throughout the drink, blanketing the majority of the surface and leaving a ample, sparkling bubble lace. Itís a mellow, but very present, medium bitter with a sneaky medium high sweetness. Itís slick and stick on the way down with a body that starts full, but mellows closer to medium by the end. Thereís lots of creamy soft carbonation with this one. Itís smooth and juicy, finishing with pine, toasted bread, caramel candy (sugary sweet), apricot, and a touch of soapiness. The lingering aftertaste recalls the sticky, sugary caramel and throws in some pine for good measure. Itís a long-lingering aftertaste that eventually turns dry and chalky..

Bottle. Crystal-clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel and apricots, grapefruit. Flavour of caramel malt, citrus hops, sweetish apricot. I was hoping to like this beer but it didnít quite work for me. A lower abv beer with a tart rather than sweet flavour profile would be my preference.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from draft. Pours a nice amber with white head. Aroma of apricot, orange peel, grapefruit and pine. Taste is definite apricot mixed with bitter hops. Actually blends quite nice. One of the best fruit beers I've had. Some pine notes and citrus fruit flavors. Medium bodied. Excellent for a fruit beer and above average for an IPA.

Clear, amber-copper pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma has an interesting mixture of apricot, herbs, and a touch of pine. It has a medium body with slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with just a hint of fruit and a slightly dry finish.

T - bitter orange peel, sweet apricot, salty and kind of harshly bitter finish.
P - thin to oily with lively carb; bitter and abrupt finish.
O - lives up to its name, although the apricot flavors are toned down quite a bit due to aggressive hops. would like to see a juicier apricot flavor.
