A - Poured a very good lucking ruby red color that was crystal clear. Also had one finger of slightly offwhite head. There was decent retention and lacing.
S - A very sweet smelling IPA. Most likely from the apricots that were used. Apricot and other citrus such as lemon aromas rule this beer.
T -Very different tasting beer at first but enjoyable. Its starts out slightly sweet with tastes of apricots and a little lemon. It finishes quite bitter and piney tasting. Interestingly enough, I liked the beer more after it had set about 20 minutes than after I just opened it. After 20 minutes more of the maltiness of the beer started comnig thru and the flavors seemed to come together and compliment each other.
M - Just like it reads on the box. This is a very smooth drinking beer. You would never beleive its 7% ABV.
O - Aprihop is a very good IPA. I thought it would be much different tasting since apricots were used in the brewing process but this was not the case. It was different than your everyday IPA, but thats what I was looking for. The beer didnt disappoint. I would definately recommend letting the beer sit a few minutes before enjoying it.
