The head is good, the body orange. It smells hoppy, intensive, aromatic, malty. The taste is hoparomatic, maltaromatic, amarillo, creamy, fruity-peaches,. Very nice! 13/12/12/12/13/12

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured burnished coppery with a ver slight haze and a huge rocky head that quickly disappeared. No lacing. Aroma straight from can was surprisingly very sticky sweet caramel malt with a less pronounced orange/pine/spice hop aroma underneath. Fat mouthfeel at the front quickly thins through the middle, finishes sharp, clean, spicy and thin and a touch metallic. As beer warms it evens out a bit. I didn’t really get too much peach, more orange, reminiscent of Croucher’s Galaxy. Bitterness lingers nicely. Overall, another winner from Garage Project.

Great looking beer than delivers on the visual promise. Taste is distinctive but diffuse - it’s a great partner to their "Death From Above" brew.

From can, It has the gorgeous golden-copper-amber colour I expected and traces of a white head that left lace down the glass. There can be little denial of the peach characters that have been put in my head by the suggestion on the can, but I am reliably informed there is no peach addition to the beer. In fact about an hour ago I tasted a beer from Lincolnshire in Britain that was peachier than this purely from its gorgeous cracked crystal malt component. This beer is significantly more restrained than the beer I was expecting. It isn’t angry at all - it is vaguely sweet and fruity with charm aplenty. The finish is reminiscent of the Bateman’s beauties I sampled this evening and that makes it aces in my book.

330ml can. 6.8% Alc. Pours a nice golden amber colour this is quite a dry beer where the peach notes come through. No peaches were harmed making this beer so not sure why classed as a fruit beer?

Wow, one of the best beers I have ever tasted. Super Hoppy and herby resin weed on the nose. minimal off white head. Medium sweetness that lingered with a bitter finish, too. Full bodied and voluptuous. Better than sex. Almost.

Perfect rich and deep peach colour. Aroma is a strong fruit smell - hops bringing some peach aroma. Taste - very drinkable and sessional ipa, with a mild bite. Overall, a nice sessional ipa.

Pours dark amber with a lasting head.
Nose shows resinous hops with some fruity notes too. Some caramel anf fruity confectionery.
Pretty aggressive flavours, very hoppy with some grassy notes and spicy hops. Not much in the way of malt.
Too highly carbonated.
