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.

Pours a copper color with a cream white head which disappeared quickly. Smell is what you would expect for this beer, apricots with hops. Hops are more in the aroma than the flavor which is more malt accented than I would have expected. As the beer warms a bit the fruit and hops get more involved. Not a beer I would buy all the time, but a nice change of pace especially for spring and summer. another interesting beer from one of my favorite brewers.

12 oz bottle from Samp01. Pours reddish amber with a short- lived white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrus hops followed by caramel malt and some fruit. Body is medium and crisp. A lot of citrusy hops, caramel and ripe fruit combine on the palate. The finish is long, dry, and grapefruity. Delicious IPA, it was perfect with Moroccan stew.
