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.

From the 2014 batch. Sampled on May 25, 2014 after mowing my lawn!

The pour is a handsome looking medium amber to mahogany color with an off-white head that bubbles lightly on the top to the very end.

What usually turns me off about fruit beers is the fact that they often smell more like the fruit rather than the beer. I expect that is deliberate. But what I like about this one is that the apricot is almost like an afterthought to to roasted caramel malt and earthy hop notes that emit their perfumes to the senses.

The body is roundabout medium but also quite smooth and drinkable.

Again, like the nose, the roasted malts and mildly bitter hops express themselves in the flavor as they would in a decent amber ale. Then those refreshing apricots tear up the rear. A very nice beer.
