Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
Aprihop is an American IPA brewed with Pilsner and Crystal malts. It's massively hopped -- in the continuous fashion, of course! -- and the flavor is complemented by the addition of apricots.

After fermentation, the beer is dry hopped with irresponsible amounts of Amarillo hops. The beer has a hoppy aroma, with the apricots playing a supporting role.

The flavor is rich with late hop flavors, and its bitterness is tempered by just the right amount of malt sweetness and fruity undertones from the apricots.

Dogfish head is my wife's favorite brewery. We were anxious to try this one!

Poured a beautiful amber color, with a nice tan head. This beer smelled sweet and hoppy- much like many of the other Dogfish beers. When I tasted this beer, I was anticipating a load of apricots to meet my tastebuds. Not the case. Sure, I could taste the fruit, but it wasn't overly fruity, just very well balanced with a nice, subtle, sweet flavor. The malts and the hops were well balanced. Not overly hoppy (thank God), yet not dull either- just a nice; even brew.

They could have left the "aprihop" off of the label, and I would have been fooled into thinking this was just another great Dogfish head IPA. Good stuff!

Side Note: The lacing of this beer is encredible. As I write this review, I've been done for 20 minutes, and my glass is still covered from top to bottom with a beautiful, sticky white lacing.
