Availability: Spring

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.

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A - poor. Golden copper body with a fizzy head that fades to scum.

S - muted, hops, apricots almost

T - sweet front palate, apricots more on taste than smell, but IPA style is it not. Just too sweet.

M - carbonation too low as per look, smooth, creamy.

O - quite a let down, more like a fruit beer than an IPA. Taste is medium weight which does not help cause. As it warms it gets more like a stale IPA with a truck load of apricot purée added.

Serving type: bottle

2.91/5  rDev -24.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Draft at 35-40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of pine
What head left by the bartender is small, white, and fizzy
Lacing none
Body medium red amber, clear
Flavor begins lightly bitter and piney; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl; ends a little sweet and fizzy
Palate light to medium, watery, fizzy

For a supposedly decent beer, this is entirely too fizzy, sort of like drinking a flavored club soda. The alleged apricot flavor is completely lost in the fizziness. Not good.

Serving type: on-tap
