3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy Orange golden color with a moderate off- white head. Aromas of medium sweet apricots, some earth malt, hoppy grapefruit, and light caramel. Flavors are mildly sweet with apricot, light caramel and grapefruit. middle gets more bitter until the finish with a near biting apricot pit/sharp hops bite. Not sure if the bitterness is the hops of the apricot. quite funky. Medium body with some stickiness, light acidity. Plenty of apricot, but also plenty of hops. Solid effort on a different kind of fruit brew.
