3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2011 Bottle, The pour was a clear golden copper in color with a thin (1/2 finger or less) frothy white head that dissipated rapidly and had fair lacing.
The aroma was of moderate grain malts, a mild floral hop and an earthy yeast with a definite hint of apricot and maybe a little honey.
The taste was a little malty and had a nice fruity note in the beginning then shifted to a slightly bitter hoppy flavor at the end with just a hint of spice that left the flavor hanging around for a decent amount of time.
Mouthfeel was excellent, with the body being light to medium and a the texture being creamy at first then rather dry at the end with a nice lively carbonation.
Overall, the mild bitter finish and the flavors that were left to linger allowed you to enjoy the full embodiment of this brew. Nice and tasty and quite drinkable.

Fruity on the nose, apricot is what comes through heavily. I generally don't like the fruity beers a lot, but this one is quite well done.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Looks like a lager, almost no head. The aroma is extremely strong, like perfume, and the taste is also extreme but not necessarily in a good way.

Odd that this doesnít have too high a rating, I liked it. good presence of hots and other tastes to it, I didnít know what this was cause it says itís an IPA and it is not. So itís "almost a pale ale" but to me it taste like a small twist on an old classic. Which, since ipaís can tend to be similar, it nice

Draught. Very light and fruity. Solid malt backbone that comes through after the Turkish delight! Its a bit odd all said and done though.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle shared with ebone1988. This one is going to be a flaming turd. The pour is a darker gold with a thin white colored head and a small collar. There is a bit of lace left on the glass. The aroma is garbage. There is a strong wheatiness to it that just isnít good. There is no discernible hop, and there is a huge lack of fruit. For what this one is promising itís just turning out to be a wheat turd. The flavor is equally bad. There is a little bit of raspberry in it, but itís just garbage. Itís sweet and medicinal, and there is no apricot at all. The mouth feel is thin and slick with a lack of carbonation and a medicinal aftertaste. This is just a piece of junk. Damnit.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is old, fruit punch syrup, raspberry, malt, not good. Appearance is light golden with a touch of red, off white head, clear. Taste is...wheat. Medicinal raspberry, metallic, not much else. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, almost no carbonation, metallic aftertaste. Overall, damn 1001 Beers list. This one sucks.
