This pours out with a clear amber body with a big fluffy one and a half finger head that dissipates to very nice all-covering blanket of foam. Nice sporadic spots and steaks of lace down the edges of the glass. The aroma is sweet with a somewhat earthy undertone, perhaps clay. Also a little grassy and faint hint of cloche. The taste has a slight bitterness from the Warrior hops and a great hops presence that makes this ale. The sweetness from the apricot there, but in the background, which in my opinion is a good thing. It also has a peculiar woodiness to it, almost like it was aged in wood, but it's not. This ends very dry on the tongue, bitter, and a little oily. Great IPA, very fresh and very crisp...

Pours a deep copperish amber, half finger of off white head that did not stick around
Smell is well I do get a lot of citrus, orange, grapefruit, apricot, pine needle, herbal hop, lemon, sweet malt backing... While I can detect all of that it is very subtle, certainly does not have the biggest nose around.
Taste is well basically the nose, herbal hop, pine, citrus, apricot, kiwi, pineapple, blood orange, sweet underlying malt. Not really that bitter at all to my palate.
Mouthfeel is medium light with heavy cutting carbonation, slight drying but not as much as your standard ipa offering.
I really like this one, best I have had in my very limited DFH experience. I really think this nails the spring season well. I do not understand why it is in 4 packs and not 6 packs but oh well that will just limit my purchasing of this beer.
