Glass - Tulip
A - A nice coppery colored brew with a bit of a red hue to it. Big clarity with lots of visible carbonation. It produced a 2-finger white head that left some spots and splotches on my glass.
S - Dry with floral and citrus hop characteristics upfront. I get a mix of pine, lemon, grapefruit and a bit of herbal, tea like hop notes. I wouldn't say I pick up Apricot for sure, but maybe. Underneath the hop notes I get mild caramel and brown sugar notes. As the beer warmed I definitely got a nice apricot skin aroma.
T - Okay I definitely pick up some apricot in the flavor. Upfront I get leafy, tea like hop flavors with a pronounced apricot that's not sweet but rather dry, bitter, and citrus like. Brown sugar and grainy like flavors quickly follow. It finishes with definite apricot flavors that aren't sweet at all, a touch of alcohol, and a quick snap of low bitterness and a bit of dryness.
M - Moderately crisp with a lite-medium body.
O - I'm really surprised how they managed to not make this beer overly sweet. Anyhow I enjoy it! I like the pronounced apricot flavor and the relatively lite/crisp body that allows for some easy drinking. I thought the beer was a little too dry, and could have used a bit more brown sugar flavor without the sweetness, but otherwise I liked it.
It's definitely worth a try if you like IPA's and a refreshing snap of apricots. Cheers!
