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.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight sweet malt, hint of alcohol, hint of pine, and a hint of citrus. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus, sweet malt, slight caramel malt, slight pine, and slight hops. Overall, weak appearance, simple aroma, simple body, and hard to distinguish any apricots.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours red orange with very little head. Smells of pine hops and sweet fruit, apricots of course. Tastes of fruit with slight earthy hops. Beer is nicely carbonated finishes nicely. Overall a very good beer.
