The aroma is hoppy and fruity with lots of apricot and cascade hop notes. It has a medium body with moderate carbonation and a nice, smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is nicely balanced between the hops and the apricots, with the hops taking the leading edge here.

Draft - This is all IPA...but then right when you think you’re done you’re hit with the sweet fruity apricot flavor. It’s a balance between the two that you won’t find anywhere else. Not for everyone, but interesting enough to get me.

Vom Fass im Brew Pub in Rehoboth Beach. Orangene Farbe mit cremigem Schaum. Herbfruchtige Nase mit kräftigem Hopfen. Der Geschmack ist überraschend herb. Die Aprikose kommt ganz zum schluss. Toll wie alle Biere von Dogfish Head!

12 ounce bottle. Pours golden orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is citrus, caramel malt, pine, and a bit of apricot. Decent.

Carlisle (276) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Draft. Bronze color with off-white head and some lacing. Malt aroma. Tastes more like an amber ale. Apricot not all that noticeable; hole flavor underwhelming. Overall, disappointing, especially for Dogfish Head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear brown. Not a whole lot of flavor. For really notice the apricots. Definitely drinkable but nothing special.

ryecatcher (1108) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle. Deep orangey-gold pour, medium off-white head. Nose is caramelly malt, some grain, and dried apricot with a hint of wet cardboard. Mouth is more of the same. I dig me some DFH brew, but this particular one is average at best. Just an FYI... this is not a Fruit Beer. Besides being misclassified (this is an IPA) ’fruit beer’ is the stupidest (and laziest) fucking category on RateBeer.

DocJitsu (1375) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Pours an amber-golden with a creamy light tan head. Tangy nose. Full, soft mouthfeel with some scrubbing carbonation. I pick up the apricot flavor. Some citrus gets involved as well. A little confusing on the palate, but not bad.

Bottle. Pours a orange color with white head. Apricot, slight soapy, grainy aromas. Apricot, old apples, herbal hop flavors.
