look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Served on-tap at Pinocchio's Pizza in Media, PA.
A: Pours a pristine apricot hue (go figure) with a two-finger bleach white head that eventually fades to a small, creamy cap that seems to be struggling to stick around. A little bit of lacing left down the glass, but not much.
S: Lots of citrusy hops. Grapefruit upfront with a bit of some grassiness underneath followed by a nice wave of fresh apricot. A great balance of standard IPA aroma and apricots.
T: Substantially closer to an IPA than a fruit beer. Flavors are reminiscent to that of DFH 60-Minute with a nice infusion of fresh apricot that makes things interesting, but keeps it reserved enough to maintain the IPA title.
M: A bit on the full-side that leaves the palate significantly coated. Carbonation isn't as sharp as you'd expect. Booze is definitely a bit noticeable which warns you to refrain from pounding these down.
O: An interesting, enjoyable offering from Dogfish Head, for sure, but this lacks the qualities for a revisit. The mouthfeel was a little weak compared to some of their year-round brews and the flavors are nice, but just not exactly my cup o'tea. Might grab another pint of this next season, but I think I've had my fill of apricots for now.
Serving type: on-tap
