Dogfish Head Aprihop
Dogfish Head Aprihop is an American IPA brewed with apricot juice. There are two sure signs that spring is around the corner, finding Cadbury Mini Eggs and Dogfish Head Aprihop at the store!
A bit on the darker side for an IPA with an interesting red/orange color. The aroma is very similar to 60 minute with that earthy toasted pine nut type thing going on, slight fruit sweetness. It tastes pretty much exactly as expected: DFH 60, but sweeter. The fruit sweetness is less distinct apricot, it has more of a generic peach like flavor going on until it warms up. The last 1/3 of my glass is very obviously apricot forward.
I’m not a huge fruit beer type guy, but the quality IPA base is ultimately makes this one work for me. As the season changes this is quite often the perfect IPA for a warm Spring day.
