On tap @ Proof Brewing Company. Lighter bodied IPA with a off-sweet finish due to the light apricot presence. Wouldnt call it it a fruit beer by any means, but an IPA first with a fruit/floral finish, which can be said about most IPAs anyway. Solid session beer.

Found in cellar from last year (2016) and drank it today while working in garage. Pours a clear gold with a very very creamy long lasting head. Subtle apricot under more traditional pale ale aromas. Taste is more pale ale than apricot and it has a very long lasting finish of a melange of apricot, hop, and malt - almost lasts like its sticky going down, but its not. Very nice on this warm, but not hot, day.

Vtg Blackberry backlog, Many bottles over the years, This review was from Spring 2010. Pours amber golden with one finger head. Smell and flavor are old hops, caramel, pine, and candy apricot. Too sweet.

12fl oz bottle poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Very effervescent, dark amber with a couple fingers of lingering off-white head. Aroma and flavor are both heavy on hops and apricot. Lasting bitter finish. Delicious.

My 500th rate! :D

Pours a light amber color. Aromas of hop, apricot with hints of grass and malts. Flavor has a nice piney juniper bite to it, with a mellow apricot flavor with a nice dry finish.

just a slight hint of apricot, the apricot really gets overwhelmed by the hops (a good thing) much tastier that I expected; not your average fruit beer

Bottle 0,33l. Pours an amber colour with a white head. Aroma is fruity malt, apricot, and pine. Taste is sweet caramel malt with some fruit notes and slight apricot flavors. Finishes with earthy, pine hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I was stoked for this beer. What a cool concept, apricots and Dogfish Head, right? Eh. I didnt enjoy it like I thought I would. It wasnt a bad beer, but it didnt keep me drinking. It was a little bitter and not really smooth, and tasted more reminiscent of grapefruit than any other fruit flavor I can associate with a beer. Just okay.

Aroma - caramel malt, heavy hop, sweet drupe fruits Appearance - dark orange body with an average white head. Taste - sweet caramel and drupe fruit, I assume must be apricot and complimentary fruits. Palate - body is medium, verge of oil, average carbonation, and a hopped finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sent is faint at first followed up by a nice Africa tropical citrus fruits smell was a slight yeasty finish. Color is perfect and nice deep orange E amber color. Taste is divine with a nice sweet water hoppy flavor with citrus followed by the nice apricot finish. Flavor flushes over your tongue perfectly. Overall this is one of my favorite fruit IPAs wish I would have rated it earlier.
