look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. brown bottle. Fresh to date.

A: Pours a hazy light straw color. Large white head which retains well. Leaves above average lacing.

S: I am first ambushed by the apricots, this leads to the slightly piney hops. I can almost detect orange or some other citrus.

T/M: A combination of subdued hops and citrus. They work well together and the beer goes down smooth with a creamy texture. Little aftertaste and easy to drink. At one moment I am reminded of Blue Moon.

O: This one is interesting, I think I like it. The combination of hops and apricots work well for me. However The IPA does not come through enough as it needs more of a hop presence.

Cheers!!

12 oz bottle poured into A lager glass.

A - Hazy yellow-gold. Two inch white head that keeps retention throughout. Nice lacing.

S - Citrus and pine.

T - Slightly sweet fruit and malt ends in an unpleasant bitterness. Almost like ashes.

M - Medium/full

O - This is how it was after five minutes. The first few sips were tremendously hoppy. Let it sit a few minutes to savor it fully. Didn't care for the bitter aftertaste.
