4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the 2011 Hunahpu’s release.
Pours a bright golden orange color that is hazy and opaque with a two finger frothy, pillowy white head that has good retention, slowly fading into a lasting ring. Streaks, spots and rings of chunky, soapy lacing left behind.
The nose of this beer is bursting with tropical fruit with only slight earthy pine notes. Lots of citrus and tropical fruit, mostly peach but also mango, pineapple and citrus rind.
Medium bodied and bursting with luscious tropical fruit flavor. Tons of peach up front providing more sweetness that lingers throughout. Not very dry with slight bitterness and the sweetness takes away from the hop flavor a bit. Lots of tropical peach, mango and pineapple as well as some orange peel. Pale malt backbone provides nice balance but this beer could use a bit more hop bite/bitterness/dryness. Very refreshing and extremely quaffable but it’s a bit one dimensional.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ the Hunahpu release. Pours clear orangish color with off white head. Aromas of peaches and citrus. Sweet peach and citrus flavors with some sweet maltiness. Medium body with average carbonation. A little too peachy for my tastes but still good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tampa, Fl - 32 oz growler from the brewery tap room. Medium copper, glistening, with a nice sticky white head. Aroma of fresh peaches with a hint of spruce in the back end. Peach essence is present in the flavor, but not as prominent as the aroma, but just enough to add a bit of intrigue. More grapefruit-like citrusy than peach with some nutty notes in the back end., Mouthfeel is nice and sticky. Pretty solid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mini-Growler thanks to David. Pours a dark copper color with a large white head. A awesome sweet hoppy and huge peach aroma. The flavor is two very different beasts; sweet citrus and peaches, but also a rich bitterness. Fruity a bit of cannabis. Very smooth and nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2011 Tap at Hunahpu 2011. The pour is a hazy to mostly clear orange with a medium, rocky yellow head. Aroma is full peaches and cream ice cream, more like peach cobbler than tangy and fleshy peach. (Maybe it went in the mash and got cooked a little bit?). Taste is fully bitter, with oily peach cobbler and ice cream. Really good stuff. 3/14/2011 7/4/7/4/14=3.6
Growler consumed about two weeks after being filled. The pour is exquisite: a clear deep orange body is topped with a giant, yellow, ice cream, sheen and massively rocky whipped cream head. Amazing retention and lace. Aroma is really outstanding: fresh juicy peach, cooked peaches in dessert, peach cobbler. Very intense, full, and unmistakable. Taste is bitter, spicy, mild peach, sweet peach cobbler. Palate is soft, bitter, biting, and fairly intense. Oily and bitter rather than dry and astringent. Not super fresh but oh so good. Should probably be a regular CCB offering. 5/1/2011 8/5/7/4/15=3.9

On tap at CCB. Orange pour with quarter inch white head. Citrus bitterness with a solid level of peach. Med body with big bitterness throughout - the peach really shines along with thin layers of banana and orange. Bitter dry finish and a bit sweet. Nice IPA from CCB.

Draft. Pours orange with an off white head. Big peachy aroma with some light floral notes. The flavor has fresh peaches, a moderate amount of bitterness, and a floral hoppy finish. Interesting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cigar City smokes NYC at Rattle N Hum. Peachy aroma, it smells likethe real thing rather than extract. Dark yellow body, little head. SMooth drink, though carbonation is right there. More of a pale hale in terms of bitterness tasted. Nice novelty.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft at Cigar City Smokes RNH Event in NYC. Pours a bright hazy orange body with minor white lacing. Aroma is absurd explosion of peach. Mouthfeel is smooth with notes of fruit, peach, fresh hop, and citrus. Hands down one of the best single IPAs I can remember ever trying. If you come across this - TRY IT.

On tap at Cigar city, an absolute beautiful looking beer, a slight peach aroma, some hoppy citrus, I was really hoping for a bit more peach, but this is delicious and dangerously drinkable.
