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.

Another brew from the Hopology series, not as good as some of the others, but still a great brew. Poured a nice orange color with an awesome white foam head. Aroma is of pine and citrus. Flavor is hoppy and a bit bitter from citrus peel?. I like it, it has a decent finish but is just a tad to bitter and off balanced on the finish. Overall, a very good beer from Boston Beer !!!

12 oz bottle from the "Hopology" sampler pack, poured in a pint glass. Golden orange with a very foamy head. I can smell some apricot and citrus notes (as stated on the label). Taste is strong at first, with a combo of spices, and obviously, hops. I'm not sure I noticed a lot of wheat here. Noticeable bitterness, probably from the orange peel (or maybe yeast?). Overall, a decent beer. However, the aftertaste had a distracting chemical tinge that I didn't like.
