ApriHopApriHop
Notes: 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.

The hops drown out any apricot flavor
This stuff is horrible.

One of my favorite beers ever, the dark, almost caramel flavor of the apricot is a much better compliment to the IPA style that you might think. A perfectly balanced beer and a great pickup if you can find it.

The appearance was always a nice amber to brown color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipates at a nice pace to a semi-filmy lacing. The aroma, woah, absolutely freakin’ awesomely apricot to peachy goodness filling a super nice semi-bitter piney hoppiness running about the nose. The taste was mostly bitter but lead to a nice semi-sweet citrus-ness concerning itself to try to run itself about a nice aftertaste and ended up leading to a fairly same finish. On the palate, this one shows a nice sessionable quality running about it and still lends a hand to a nice carbonation running about its body and shows that there is nothing overbearing of the sorts on any end. Overall, good fruit beer that shows a decent bitter hoppiness trying to make it come across as an AIPA.

Bottled early 2015; drank 7/11/15 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the bottle into a can.

See-through orange appearance.

HUGE eggnog head; a curtain of frothy lace.

Mild notes of apricot, honey & caramel in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Faint flavors of apricot & malted grain up front; caramel notes on the finish. Not much flavor at all; drinkable but why bother?
