Aprihop – Dogfish Head

7.0% ABV
Purchased at Taylor’s Market ($9.99/4-pack of 12 oz. bottles) and poured into tulip glasses.

His Notes:

This seasonal offering from Dogfish Head pours a burnt orange with a sizable off-white head, and a strong nose of fleshy apricots – in fact, it’s like walking through an apricot orchard in the middle of harvesting season.  Apricots also dominate the palette, but it’s leavened with a honey-caramel sweetness backed up by a substantial amount of hops. Aprihop is a refreshing take on the summer IPA, and unlike the similarly fruit-inflected Sam Adams Whitewater IPA, the tastes here are refined and don’t reek of gimmickry. Like so many Dogfish Head brews, Aprihop manages to combine disparate and seemingly discordant ingredients into a harmonious whole.
