4.3/5 rDev +12.3%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A - Pours a medium copper color with a nice fat white head, probably an inch thick which laces the glass well.
S - Excellent, I'm not usually into the sweet smelling beers, but apricots are not the sweetest out there. I love the smell of this, apricots with some subtle wheat hints to it and a citrus hop to the nose as well.
T - Very nice, again, not a big fan of sweet beers. This one isn't so sweet. Just a nice healthy kick of apricots with some bready notes and that same good citrusy hop taste that you smell.
M & D - A good drinkable IPA which holds to the tongue well with it's thicker almost bread like underbelly. It leaves you reaching for another, too bad for you when you are all out. Impressive at 7% is not overbearing in the least. Very enjoyable with the sunshine and heat and pairs well with a good quality hamburger right off the grill.

3.74/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
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.
