A-apricot colored with a thick cream colored head that has good lacing

S-well it also smells like apricot, fresh apricot. some spices and caramel. and a lot of citrusy hops. this is a complex smelling beer.

T-this is amazing. comes in with smooth apricot, hops, and caramel with a tinge of bitterness. the after-taste is a long lasting bitterness along with what reminds me of rye. has a certain amount of spice to it as well.

M-medium and creamy carbonation with a creamy bitter finish.

O-becomes less complex but still stays great. i want them to bottle this. people will love this. i could drink this all night long. i find it to be MUCH better that nugget nectar.
