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.

big carbonation when poured

A:Dogfish Colored IPA, small head, lots of bubbles.

S: light fruity dogfish yeast smelling, similar to a 60 to me but not as fruity. not sure if I can smell the apricots, maybe slighty?? or perhaps if I let it sit longer the apricots might come out.

T: very low on bitterness to me, slightly fruity, aftertaste is still fruity and slightly hoppy.

M: high carbonation on the tongue, sweet and goes down pretty tart and crisp.

O: not a typical IPA, pretty low on the grassy bitterness, still hoppy and fruity. I think it would be good for someone who isn't quite into IPAs but tends to be a more of a lager fan or an inbetweener. Not really my style but I would drink it if someone gave me one.
