An interesting balance of hop and fruit. A very mild IPA (especially for DFH) and apricot that it refreshing; natural ingredients are nice so this doesnt end up tasting syrupy. Would be interested to try a higher hopped version of this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours clear medium dark golden orange with a nice off-white head, good retention and nice lacing patterns. toasted cereals, caramel - chewy malts, grass, pine and peach-apricots - nice fruitiness. enhanced dankness by apricots (!). slightly boozy, bit too much caramel - nice fruity aroma faded by the end of the beer. average carbonation, medium body - oily and a tad heavy, short but assertive citrusy-piney finish. nice fruity-ipa concoction.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. Golden with one finger head. Nice hops, but I don’t really catch the apricot much at all. But as an IPA, this is definitely above average. Good hop mix.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear copper with a finger and a half of white head that lingers and leaves mild lacing. Apricots are noticeable on the nose, but mango, peaches, and grapefruit are more noticeable, and all are followed by piney hops. Balanced on the tongue, with nothing overpowering. Medium bodied beer, but very easy going down, followed by a tropical fruit finish. Nice IPA worth picking up.

A very good unique beer. Pours a clear orange. Smells great, like heavy apricots. The taste is very balanced, great contrast between the apricots and hops. Had in the bottle. Very good!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper with a finger of off white head that lingers and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is very citrusy and sweet. A lot of grapefruit and pineapple mixed with a resinous/pine bite. Mouth is very bitter and sweet. I can definitely taste the apricot. It’s delicious. There is a decent amount of citrus present. Good hop bite, and a very, VERY smooth, dry finish.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
More of an IPA than a "fruit beer". Ton of hops and apricots (shocking, right?) on the nose. Smooth, silky taste. Really tasty. Apricots are there but don’t overpower. Very fresh tasting.
