SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Beer of the Week— Dogfish Head's ApriHop IPA.

The ApriHop is a nontraditional IPA because it has been hit with a fruity infusion.

The brew provides a great pairing of apricot and hoppy flavors, a truly delightful taste. The jam-like fruit flavor becomes more pronounced as the beer warms.

The nose is not as sweet as one might expect. It is fruity and hoppy like most IPAs, but the apricot scent comes through only slightly.

The beer has a medium amber color with lots of carbonation. It has a silky ivory head and is 7 percent alcohol.

The brewer suggests pairing the beer with salad, swordfish, Mexican, barbecue, or hummus.

So it sounds to me like you can enjoy Dogfish Head's ApriHop with fare from just about anywhere.
