4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a mostly clear, dark orange in color and topped with a small off white head of foam. The aroma is really nice showing notes of juicy peaches, citrus fruit, and spicy peppery oak along with a hint of vanilla. The citrus hops add their bitterness to go with the toasted caramel malt base. The flavor follows with even more peaches and citrus fruits up front to go with the spicy white oak and citrus hop bitterness on the back end. The vanilla adds some smoothness and balances things out and toes nicely with the pepper notes from the oak. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads a nice dry, citrus fruit finish. Definitely one of my favorite IPA treatments from Cigar City. Great beer.

Interesting to match fruit with an IPA. Pours Amber with a thin head. The aroma has peach and sweet malt, some bread. The flavor has the peach up front with some oak. The hops come thru in the back but they don’t over power the fruit. Nice beer.

On tap at The Cambridge. Clearish orange with an off-white haze. Nose is super peachy with cherry, grass and lime. Medium body with a bright buzz. Taste is peach, pine and lemon zest with oak to soften. Fruit salad balanced with earthy hops.

Really respectable beer. Flight sized pour of lightly hazed straw with off white head. Nose is plenty of fruity peach and mild oakiness. Some citrus from the hops. Flavor follows, peach forward, especially in the finish, with more hop notes up front and a little more in the finish, citrus... Again more mild oak. It’s pretty enjoyable, dunno if I’d call it complex, just straight forward but in a good way.

Growler from brewery. Candied peach aroma. Transparent bronze color with standard head. Unique flavor. Sweet fruit offset by slight bitterness. Simply damn good. I want more.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Starts off very peachy but ends with this IPA bitterness and the two sides of the coin don’t match together well. Pours cloudy amber with good head and lacing. Finishes bitter, starts sweet. Taste and aroma in disconnect. Tap at Churchkey.

4 oz draft pour at ChurchKey. Poured a hazy, golden dark-orange color with an off-white, medium sized head. Aroma was peaches, straight up peach juice, floral character in there - some other tropical fruits perhaps - a touch mango? Flavor was nice citrus, light pine, all within a wonderfully easy to drink peach flavor. Two CC peach beers in one night (Peach Habanero IPA).
