I like fruit beers, but I donít like apricot.
The beer poured a cloudy gold producing a pale head that quickly dissolved. Mildly hoppy with flavor that hangs around after your done with it. Not bad, but not great.

I really didnít think this was a fruit beer when I drank it on tap. Light amber color with a decent white head. Actually more hops in this than I expected. Weird. Flavor was slightly fruity, very good though. Nice finish.

this is really refreshing, especiallyat an abnormaly hot campground waiting around all day for Phish to play, and the phans sure do love this one, I think its probably b/c of that tripped out label, but it may also be because of the beer, citrus is the theme of this brew, and thats not a lie because its true.

I think they call this their IPA. Very bland and average. Itís like the lite beer of craft beers. Iím glad I didnít pay for it, the magic hat rep did.

If only this beer tasted as well as it smelled. Thge aroma is very fruity making one think they will enjoy a nice american fruit beer. Sadly it just tastes like a "not-quite pale ale." It is like a retarded pale ale, one that has all the characterisitics without actually reaching them.

Umm... I liked this beer in high school -- that should tell the whole story. Interesting beer to show someone who doesnít think you can add apricot to a beer. Just donít have them expect it to taste that good. No hops to speak of, relatively light (drinkable), reminded me of a beer-spritzer.

Color is murky gold, nose is very strong, flavor is distinctive, fruity essence with a distinct flavor, finish is much more subtle than taste for a nice well rounded beer.

Golden yellow in colour. Aroma of apricots, mild hops and slightly sweet. Flavour was of apricots, hops, very sweet. Medium bodied. Finishes very sweet and dry. Not bad but I can appreciate Dogfish Head ApriHop a lot better.
