Beer of the Week 43: Aprihop

Dogfish Head’s Aprihop India Pale Ale

From the bottle:

An India pale ale brewed with real apricots

From my notes:

Smells of stone fruits and citrus, pretty faint. Pours a nice auburn color with a fine tan head, mild lacing as I drank. Medium bodied beer with a hoppy finish. Tastes like cherries and apricots and malt sweetness when it hits the tongue and then it hits the back and it’s citrusy hops going down. Not a lot of flavor here not a lot of hop either, mild for an IPA.

Who could go for a beer right now?

With Indian Pale Ales being such a popular beer right now Aprihop doesn’t have a lot to distinguish it from the pack. The apricot flavor is weak and the hops aren’t that powerful either. Not a lot to say about this middling brew, really.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
