Draft: Clear, dark amber with a small, off-white head. Apricot, sweet toffee malt scent. Taste is sweet, apricot and caramel malt. Really soft and creamy....mild hops. Really pleasant.

Pours a nice clear amber, with a long lasting tan head. Aroma is a bit weak, notes of apricot and a bit of hops. Taste is smooth and drinkable, with the sweetness from the Apricots balancing well with the hops. All in all, a very interesting and unique brew. Thumbs. up.

Bire cuivre et translucide. La DogfishHead Aphihop dvoile un nez de houblons frais et rsineux. Contrairement lattente que je men suis faite, nous sommes loin de lexplosion de fruits laquelle je mattendais. De labricot certes, mais encore celui-ci est trs subtil. Cest tout de mme une bonne chose car les bires aux fruits qui sont trop parfumes dgagent souvent des armes dangereusement artificielles et cest loin dtre le cas ici. En bouche il y a beaucoup de sucre; pour ce type de bire du moins. Encore une fois labricot est trs dlicat. Le liquide est lourd et lgrement trop sirupeux pour moi qui mattendais une bire lgre de soleil. Les houblons sont prsents mais forment un bel quilibre avec le malt qui ajoute une trs belle rondeur et une profondeur agricole bien plaisante. Bonne bire mais il ne faut pas sattendre une fruit beer.

Not the best apricot flavor, though I can say its natural. Doesnt taste much like a Pale Ale.

12oz bottle. Appearance: Deep orange golden with a slight haze, and moderate off white foam cap. Aroma: Fruity citrus and apricot is prominent, but also a dank, resinous hop character as well. Taste: Rich caramel maltiness and tart apricot flavor, leading into a strong bitterness that isnt sharp because of the malt base. Well balanced. Again, a resinous, almost woody hop character helps offset the sweet citrus flavors. Mouthfeel: Medium with a moderate carbonation. No noticeable alcohol heat. Finish: Lingering resinous bitterness, with a hint of apricot. Apricot is most prominent on the finish. Overall: Really well balanced IPA, with a strong enough malt base to balance the intense bitterness. Resinous hop flavors do well to balance the fruity flavors.

Tap at Horse Brass. Very refreshing, citrusy aroma, bit of apricot there too. Taste is good, quite different, not so bitter. Good.

The apricot comes through and goes well with the hops they chose, which seem floral. Not very sweet. Clean yeast. Not bad.
