Dogfish Head 'Aprihop'

First post in awhile.
This beer is a 7% IPA from Dogfish Head Brewery out of Delaware.
It's called Aprihop because it's brewed with Apricots.
Yeah so, medium pour... very light head (kind of off white and lacey) and it smells grassy.
It's also has a little bit of a syrupy or smokey look to it which I thought was interesting for a 7% IPA. I heard when it gets warm the apricots dominate the flavor more... but I wouldn't know haha.
Crispy Carbonation and almost a straight up Dogfish Head style IPA, but you can tell there's something a little summer-y about it.
Each sip finishes very cleanly and the beer is pretty dry over all.
It's a great beer for warmed weather and I would prefer it with lighter food as the flavors in it aren't too complex or do not require all of the attention of your palate
