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.

Poured into a DFN glass a nice hazy dark golden orange color, nice carbonation, very nice two finger creamy off-white head, lots of nice sticky lacing follows. The nose is sweet, malty, nice tones of apricot, spices, and caramel. The taste is slightly sweet, malty, a touch of apricot/spices, and caramel. Medium body. Drinkable, this is a tasty brew, not an IPA for sure, but tasty and would drink again.

12 oz bottle dated 2/26/10 poured in to a tulip pint glass.

Pours a clear rich golden orange with a thick, lacy off white head.

smell is billowing out. Smell of citrus hops and a faint smooth sweet apricot.

Taste is initially hoppy, then the apricot mellows it out and finishes a nice creamy sweet.

Mouthfeel is solid and drinkability is very good.

Better than I was thinking with this. The apricot really balances out the sharp hops.

Pours a dark gold/amber with a white head that dissipates leaving a little lacing. The nose is consists of citrus, tropical notes, and some sweetness. The flavor is hoppy and bitter with some citrus flavor. It tastes very much like a regular IPA but with the addition of some slightly bitter juice. The mouthfeel leans towards syrupy and thick. Overall, this is a good IPA but its not great. I prefer 60 minute to this, but wouldn't turn one down if it was given to me.
