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.

Multiple glasses on tap. Easily my favorite IPA of the night and maybe my fave ipa from the brewery. Bright golden orange pour, vibrant carbonation, minimal head, medium lacing. Aromas of white peaches, pine, mango, wood, tangerines, and other tropical richness. Taste is peach, orange, fuely hops, finishes malty and not bitter at all. Mouthfeel was so smooth on this ipa. Awesome Brew.

Sampled at EBF on Saturday afternoon. Poured a slightly hazy amber color with a stingy off white head. Smells of citrus and pine and peaches. Hints of bready and caramel malt underneath. Taste is resinous citrus and sweet juicy peaches. There’s malt in there but the peach flavor distracts me so much I hardly notice it. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resinous mouthfeel. This is an odd combination, but damn does it work. I may brew one of these.

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

Sampled at Get Real NY, cask ale festival. The most impressive beer of the day. When you think about creaivity, complexity, balanced flavors... this beer is at the forefront of all of it. Scary lively peach flavors pouring out above some of the tastiest hops... think Jai Alai and wawa peach iced tea.

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!

On draft at the brewery on 7/19/2010. Pours cloudy brown with a red tint and a finger-tall off-white head. Aroma is loads of fresh peaches and hops...smells delicious. Flavor is nice dry bitter hops with a very obvious influx of peaches. Medium bodied. This is awesome...way better than the regular Jai-Alai in my opinion.

Love this beer, what better combination could i ask for. The punch of citrus hops to the nose is amazing. It has a great mouth feel and just the right amount of bitterness with that great peach flavor coming through about mid palate. Hands down probably one of my favorite ipa’s out there.
