Okay, those whacko geniuses over at Dogfish Head are at it again. This time it is an IPA with Apricots added. Deep amber in color with a piney hop aroma and apricot fruitiness that work very well together. Nice medium body gives it a good mouth feel. The sweeter fruit flavors are quickly put into check by the bitterness from the resiny hops. I know this sounds rather weird but it all pulls together in one damn fine fruit beer - and let"s face it, there are not too many damn fine fruit beers out there.
