4.2/5 rDev +9.7%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours red orange with very little head. Smells of pine hops and sweet fruit, apricots of course. Tastes of fruit with slight earthy hops. Beer is nicely carbonated finishes nicely. Overall a very good beer.

A perfect seasonal brew from a brewery that never fails to impress.
A: Dark amber with a nice head. Enticing.
S: Ooooh! Unexpected. The hops here are unexpected... bringing spicy aromatics along with the fruity ones. There's a lot of apricot on the nose here, enough to make my mouth water.
T: Delicious. Starts with a fruity and spicy ensemble, followed by a bready and toasty middle, with a well balanced, lingering finish that combines the fruity sweetness and tartness with a well-rounded malt backbone. The hops have some slightly floral and citrus character that plays well with the fruit. OK, this will sound crazy, but... I get pepperoni pizza! The spicy hops, the malty backbone, the slight acidity of the apricot. I don't know why or how, but that's what I'm sticking with.
M: Medium body and smooth.
O: I'm from Ithaca, NY, where Ithaca Beer Company's Apricot Wheat is famous. This beer trounces that beer. Different styles, for sure, but also a completely different paradigm. Dogfish Head has created a brew that combines fruit beer and IPA into a beautiful harmony. If you know someone who's a little weak-hearted and not a bit IPA fan, this is the kind of brew that could broaden their horizons.
