2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I have had this in the past on tap, however the rating was performed on a bottle. Nice pour with golden color. Very dissapointing aroma. Smelled somewhat like yeast, not pleasent. Fruity taste with citrousy overtone. Was pretty lame.

Bottle pours to golden/orange body with minimal head that dissipates quickly. Overall this beer smells and looks average but something about it puts it just a notch above average for me. A pretty decent brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellow pour, white foamy head... head sticks around a while, too.
Aroma of yeast, slight corn-like smell. Fruits like peach, pineapple, honeydew melon perhaps? Apricot, tangerine.
Taste... sweet, soft tartness. Slight saltiness.
Palate... moderate to high carbonation... moderately clean finish.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours very hazy and amber/gold in color. Very little head that dissipates almost immediately. The aroma is pretty straightforward: hops and apricot. The taste is about the same...malty with apricot. There is virtually no depth, and there is so little malt/hop in the actual taste that I found myself thinking i was tasting dried apricots soaked in a low-concentration rubbing alcohol. Not enjoyable, and certainly not something I’d recommend.

Enjoyable fruity ale. Different taste. Likely only to drink this in the summer. Pretty good in a bucket of ice on the dock of the bay or at the beach

This beer was what I would call a very good beer. It was different from many beers but pleasing. Moderate hops and a clean finish. This is a beer I would recommend. I will definately drink this beer again.

Bottle...lots of apricot, mild yeastiness followed by hoppy zest. Decent length, finishing with similar fruit character in nose. Refreshing, easy drinking ale.

Magic Hat is one of my favorite brewing companies. This is their signature beer and a good choice. A very enjoyable beer to drink.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight apricot flavors, medium carbonation, cloudy colouring, a bit of body and quite appropriately named. Fresh, juicy, crisp and refreshing. In its class/price range a good bargin.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Aroma almost knocked me over or gave me a headache. It tastes more like a fruit beer than a pale ale, with definite apricot-citrus overtones. Overall, a decent beer that I wouldn’t want to drink too much of.
