look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
A - Cloudy, tea-colored hue with a thin white head.
S - Caramel malt sweetness with a slight hint of apricot. I probably wouldn't pick up on this if I hadn't read the bottle.
T - Definitely an IPA. Intensely bitter citrus peel hops and a lingering woody aftertaste. The apricot flavor shines through only slightly on the front end.
M - Excellent viscous mouthfeel with the perfect amount of moderate carbonation.
O - This beer didn't quite meet my expectations. It is certainly an IPA and as far as IPAs go, its a good one. However, I was expecting more of an apricot fruity flavor based on the name. Instead, this beer just comes off as a heavily hopped IPA with nothing that really sets it apart. I would have again as an IPA, but not as a fruit beer.

3.74/5 rDev -2.3%

A - Copper color with slight haze, small white head, extensive lacing.
S - Fairly muted, flat hop notes, malts in the form of pilsner coming through loud and clear.
T - Hop is mostly in the form of grass notes. A mild fruity note coupled with a cracker and grain malt hit. Turns bitter on the close, illustrating the serious hopping.
M - Given how bitter the turn is on the close, it is surprising how crisp the feel is. There is a gradual build, though, and it does burden the beer a bit you move into the second 6 oz.
O - This hybrid beer promises fruit, but though I think it is a decent IPA - nothing special, mind, but fairly clean and thoroughly hopped - the fruit is mostly lost. The only hint to its presence is a certain sweetness in the middle. Supporting role, indeed.
