3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the ol’ brewery. The aroma was straight-forward cedar, floral hops and peaches. It tasted like a bold, fruity IPA with peach of course, being the main fruit. As it warmed up the Spanish cedar really shined, as the sweet peach presence balanced out this fairly bitter beer. Cheers!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My Bottom Line:
Exaggerated peach aromas take over this former-IPA’s resinous hoppiness, as cedar notes rise in the second half.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the cloudy pale amber.
-This smells and tastes like the sweetened syrup at the bottom of peach cans.
-Bitterness is quite important, acquiring cologne-like angles due to the cedar.
-This is cleanly brewed and flavourful; it is simply poorly balanced and feels artificial, to me.
On tap at the brewery taproom.

Cask at Proof. Fuck all of you college dweebs for nearly causing a riot for a goddamn glas you can buy on the internet. Light amber pour with a pink tint and a loose bubbly white head. Initial aroma of strong peach and tropical fruitiness, but as it warms the cedar and citrus hop bitterness comes out. Flat carbonation but the peach and cedar flavor still jump at you with hop bitterness at the end. Great treatment.

A copper amber ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, loads of caramel and peaches, light maple and woody notes, with faint burned sugar. In mouth, sweet caramel, vanilla and peaches, with grassy hops. Nice if a bit cloying.

On tap at Cigar City Taproom. Pours a dark copper orange with a white head and pleasant aroma of all peach and oak. Taste is just as named, lots of sweet peach notes combined with lots of cedar with a bitte finish. Excellent brew that comes together nicely

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy peachy-orange, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Sweet peaches and cedar dominate. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, nice bitterness. Cedar starts to grate on you about a quarter way through. Nothing special.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at Devil’s Den. Foggy brown with a quickly dissipating head. Nose is peach and green grass with a perfect touch of cedar. Medium body with soft carb and a fruity tang. Taste is peach preserves, grapefruit and spicy cedar. Flavors are simple but pop and play off each other beautifully. Perhaps my favorite IPA.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Glass at Bella Vista Bash. Pours slightly hazy orange with light white head. Notes of heavy cedar, fake peach, potpouri, and some caramel sweetness. Liked the cedar but the spices and candy fake peach was overwhelming. Compared to the regular peach jai alai at rattle n hum 2 years ago...this is weak.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice amber pour with a full finger off white fluffed head. Nose is loaded with fruit, peaches, apricots, citrus and hoppy bitterness. Flavor is also healthy amounts of fruit and juiciness. Not bad, but almost too sweet. Quite drinkable.
