Dogfish Head Aprihop ....

And another beer from Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales - Aprihop.  It is an India Pale Ale brewed with apricots.  The twelve ounce bottle lists 7% ABV.  The DFH web site shows 50 IBUs.

Aprihop poured with a small head that wasn't quite tan, but was more brown than off-white.  The beer color is a darker copper.  The aroma has some citrusy hops, more of a grapefruit/orange.  The taste is very hops-centered, with some real flavor of grapefruit.  Maybe just a touch of pine.  The hops don't get really bitter which I think can be attributed to some sweetness from the apricots.  I don't get any real "apricot" flavor - just some fruity hints to the aroma and taste.  Slightly dry finish and leaves a little bit of smooth bitterness as an aftertaste.  Very tasty!
