Pours thick amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is all sweet peaches in the nose, just like I love! Flavor brings peaches dominant over hops, subtle sweet peach juice is so nice on the tongue. Subtle lime like hop presence is blended so well.

On tap at a World of Beer UCF. Pours a hazy gold with an off white head and sweet, pleasant peachy, hoppy aroma. Taste is bitter sweet, tons of nice sweet peach notes with hoppy, tropical fruit tones leading to a bitter, peachy finish. Excellent IPA, delicious with the peach highlighted perfectly

On tap at Falling Rock during GABF week. Great citrus aroma. Sweet and fruity. Extreme citrus with a great bitterness rounding out the beer. A nice bit of sweet peach mixed in but still very subtle.

Jai Lai with peach. Pretty good. Peach is definitely present but not overbearing. Adds some sweetness and you can tell its syrups, but its not too cloying. Still, little bit of a gimmick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

32 oz fliptop from MeadMe. Thanks, Greg! Opened at the Flossmoor Fireside Chat Release with a whole bunch of people. Pours a nice well hazed glowing orange golden hue, peachy pink orange glow through the body. Frothy whitish head atop, bigger bubbles stick as a firm film, good lacing. Aromas are firmer lemony and floral hops, grass, gentle peachy fruit nestles into the fold. Some grapefruit, bready malts and grain, straw. The peach almost gives a tartness, mellow sweetness. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, good dryness and hop profile up front shows lemons, florals, and earth. Peachy fruit elements kinda provide some synergy with the flavors, some juicy fruit, touch of tartness on the palate. Middle shows some bready malts, more florals and citrus. That peach element comes into it’s own as we round the corner. Dry and peachy backend, good flavors, malt body falls behind lets some nicer citrusy, floral, and a touch soapy hops shine and work well with the fruity peach compliment. Finish is dry, bitter, a touch tart. Really nice, fresh flavors here. Works well.

Pours a cloudy orange yellow with small head. Smells like you would think, and mosly all peach. Flavor follows with peach up front, followed by a bitter finish with lingering peach here. Any malt or hop taste is very subdued, but the bitter blances any sweetness perfectly. A neat beer. Not mind blowing, but a lot of fun to drink. Yum.

Growler through trade HUGE thanks to tricyclist for sending this out! Pour has a dark amber color with some orange highlights and a one finger white head when coaxed a bit and a good steady stream of bubbles in the glass. Looking good for a growler. Aroma has peach, mango, tropical fruit sweetness, and peach skins. Juicy and it really pops. Mouth feel is medium with a very nice coating and great carbonation considering it is a growler that was shipped. Flavor has plenty of fresh peach, apricot, mango, and juicy citrus. Hops enter the picture with some bitterness and they mix with malt that holds the whole thing together. It really does have an ipa in there and is not solely a fruit beer which is unique and gives this a lot of character. I love peach flavors in a beer and this one is really incredible. I have had a lot of good beers from Cigar City but this is the first one to really wow me!
