Bottle. The pour was a cloudy golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that lasted throughout and produced excellent sheeting of sticky lacing.
The aroma was nice and hoppy of citrus hops, grain malts and a soapy yeast with notes of grapefruit, caramel and a bit of spice.
The taste was lightly bitter with a decent note of caramel early on and then became good and hoppy with an awesome bitter citrus flavor and a nice dose of spice at the end. The flavor lingered for a nice long time allowing for full enjoyment of the hoppy citrus brew.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a slightly dry texture and a lively carbonation.
Overall a tasty and refreshing IPA with a nice spicy finish, in fact I think I will have another...

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thick beverage with an interesting tart bitterness. Too heavy on the apricots and too much perfume to be worth returning to.

Interesting combination of the wheat beer and the IPA hops. It’s good and very easy to drink. Works well in their mix IPA hopology six pack but I wouldn’t seek it out individually.

Pours hazy rich gold with a very foamy, leggy head. Aroma is floral, orange and pine with a touch of spice. Very nice. Taste starts short but gains some depth with warming. Leads with bitter notes flavors of piney hope, grapefruit citrus, pepper. Apricot and spices linger. Pretty damn good.

"great concept, so so execution. wit, ipa, and fruit flavors combine for a tasty brew that would be better suited for late spring or summer than the first week of winter. sa white is not a favorite...the ipa aroma and bitter flavor are done fairly well, the sweet apricot maybe masks some complexity and with 3 things going on at the same time, it’s a little muddled. that said, it nice, but i had hogh hopes."

Pours out to a creamy white head that laces. Color is a hazy yellow-orange. Aroma is fruity and citrus and pine as you would expect. it smells great. Flavor is what you would e expect from an apricot IPA and more: complex fruits, malts, and hop flavors of pine, apricot. Good call.

Pours to a cloudy orange leaving medium suds with decent head. Aroma is of citrus and a hit of something floral. Truly does taste like grapefruit but has a good bite but nothing to overwhelming. leaves aftertaste that lingers
