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.

Very drinkable, fruity beer. Good hop presence but could be more.

look has a deep orange/brown hue like no other beer to date, smell of faint apricots, malt and caramel, taste is big hoppy on front almost alcoholy but not overpowering - this is dry dry dry and faint citrus and hints of apricot on the back, feel is lacking on carbonation with a thin head that quickly dissipates. Dryness faints bitterness but it all puts a different feel on the flavor. Not a great length on flavor which is a key. Not the freshest in fact I got a discount and went for it....

Refreshing IPA at a solid ABV that will catch up after how easy these can go down. Excellent beer for sitting outside on the patio on a hot summer's day.

Better than I expected going into it.
