This is a re-review. I haven't had this beer in over a year, and the last time I did, I didn't even drink IPA's. Boy, how things have changed. I gave it a C+ last time.
A - 1 finger, quickly dissapating head sits atop a clear, filtered sunset orange body. Lots of little bubbles rise to the surface, creating a white layer, yet no lacing.
S - Lightly hopped, mostly fruity, apricot goodness. Sweet and delicious.
T - Apricot juice, candy sweetness, sugar, light hop finish. Slightly hot, but who cares. How didn't I like this?
M - Borderline syrupy, relatively thick, decent carbonation.
D - The abv and nearly cloying sweetness hinder drinkability. Otherwise a fine brew, and one I'd happily drink more of. Totally quaffable at a BBQ or outdoors.
Notes: It's crazy how much your tastebuds can change in a year... It seriously steps all over Magic Hat #9

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.
