Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

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.

Appearance
Deep golden amber, copper hue good head off the pour and decent lacing
Smell
Not overly strong, you can tell the hops are definitely there, malt for sure along with some fruit and citrus notes
Taste
It is sweet, bitter and malty! A well balanced and wonderfully concocted beer. Full of fruit and citrus flavor underneath the hops and the bitterness slightly lingers on the finish.
Overall
I definitely recommend it; I strongly look forward to March when they release it every year. It’s a really flavorful and refreshing combination and is no wonder why it’s a favorite.
