3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
1st pour was a nice deep golden near coppery hue with a lovely head and lace, 2nd pour was much more cloudy. Strong apricot and other stone fruits with a nice background of pine and pepper. Solid bready malts and that brash and often cleansing PW mouth feel. I am very much digging this more than expected.... boy I bet this would rock if around 5.5-6%

Bottle; Pour is murky light gold with a frothy white head into this glass -stick lacing presence as one would expect, I suppose. Alright - well . I thought the mango pale was a terrific success. I thought the pear was an epic failure. I decided to hope that this was more like the mango. It was more like a little bit of both. The nose is baked breads, moving to citrus hops, pale fruits, and a touch of spice here. The flavor profile is a little muddled - It must be said that the apricot is hardly noticeable - it is bittering initial, with a hint of cream, moving to more citrus hops and muddled pine notes. There’s a touch of alcohol presence - but it really just drops off.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared bomber poured to a festival sampler, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with a frothy layer of white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was light but ripened pit fruit, pith, and some dankness. The taste improved a bit with some juiciness to the flavor, and continued somewhat appealing, with a light to medium body, soft carbonation, and moderate hop bitterness. Love apricots, but wasn’t thrilled here. Maybe a Pyramid will satisfy the craving.
