Notes/Commercial Description:
Aprihop is an American IPA brewed with Pilsner and Crystal malts. It's massively hopped -- in the continuous fashion, of course! -- and the flavor is complemented by the addition of apricots.

After fermentation, the beer is dry hopped with irresponsible amounts of Amarillo hops. The beer has a hoppy aroma, with the apricots playing a supporting role.

The flavor is rich with late hop flavors, and its bitterness is tempered by just the right amount of malt sweetness and fruity undertones from the apricots.

Had this last night at Bukowski's. Very intersting stuff. Kind of like Magic Hat # 9, but doubled and with much more hops. It had a huge apricot and hop nose, very light & creamy on the palate, very falvourful and very drinkable. An IPA that meets a fruit beer. Hmm? I like it.

Tasted like a big fat Magic Hat #9 (Magic Hat Brewing, Vermont). IPA … ? Huh? This is an experimental beer regardless of what the brewery says. An IPA with fruit added is experimental, flowing smoothness and almost reminiscent of some new Belgian upstarts that throw fruit and excessive hops into a delicate brew. Madness that I like.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight sweet malt, hint of alcohol, hint of pine, and a hint of citrus. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus, sweet malt, slight caramel malt, slight pine, and slight hops. Overall, weak appearance, simple aroma, simple body, and hard to distinguish any apricots.
