3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a hazy yellow color with a tiny white head that left lacing on the glass. Aroma was citrus, pine and grass. Flavor was mild hop bitters and grass. Apricots were a non factor for me. So sweet in the finish. Drank like an ipa.

Fruit beer? Apricots? What? I didn’t get any of that. None. Just a lot of pine and a weird wheat note. It’s OK, I guess - I didn’t hate it - but it never really come together into one cohesive flavor.

It pours a light orange color with a white head. The aroma is classic west coast hoppy goodness with loads of citrus, apricot, peaches, oranges and some tropical fruit. The flavor is the same with a hefty dose of bitterness in the finish. Generally light on the palate and very tasty. Well done!

Light, orange-amber beer with a fluffy white head. Big, fruity aroma with a good west coast hop presence. Good. Tangy, peppery, not terribly sweet. Long-lasting hop finish. Medium to medium-heavy mouthfeel. Publix, Park and Blair Stone.

fantastic stuff!! .. pure fruit, melon, and light sweet hops .. i loved it!! . . . To me, it’s a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, Hey, can you give me a hand? You can say, Sorry, got these sacks..

Drafts at Casual Pint. Cloudy yellow amber with a lasting quarter inch of head. Nose is resin, grapefruit, light caramel and fruit. Flavor is the same. Near-medium body is smoothly carbonated and dry. Nice session ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours hazy orange with a fluffy one finger white head. The aroma is apricots, sweet hops, mildly spicy. The taste is less apricots than the aroma, there is a more hoppy citrusy flavor with a wallop of bitterness after the swallow. Body is medium, carbonation is moderately high, finish as I already said is bitter and sticks around. The taste and aroma could not be more different, In the aroma I detect very little hops and a lot of fruity apricots, and the taste Is all about the hops, bitter upfront in your face hops, interesting take on the IPA. I do wish they could have kept the bitter finish but also got those apricots and spices to show up more in the flavor. As it warms the fruit does show up and the bitterness mellows out, nice IPA, I think I like this better than their standard Latitude 48 IPA.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy golden color with a thick, foamy white head. The aroma has an overpowering citrus presence. The flavor is piney with a hint of apricots and a very dry finish. Would have been better without the aprocotts and spices.

Picked up a 12oz bottle in the new mix pack from Sam Adams, pours a hazy light golden with a thin white soapy head and spotty lacing, aroma is heavy on the pine with some citrus and a little bit of must, the flavor has a good amount of wet hops mixed in with some spices, orange and coriander, almost tastes like a hopped up Blue Moon.
