ChrisSc (379) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2015
12oz pour on tap into tulip. Minneapolis. Pours orange-amber in color. Transparent. Small white head. Very nice lacing. Aroma is heavy on peach. Citrus notes- lemon and grapefruit. Grainy notes in the background. Alcohol becomes very strong as beer warms. Taste is bitter with some sweetness in the finish to balance. Body is pretty full. Pretty nice mouthfeel. Long bitter finish. Brent says this is a "fuckin peach bomb" This beer is excellent when cold, but really not great when warmed. Alcohol becomes very strong.

BierMeHoos (276) - Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2015
On draft at Old Line Fine Wine, Spirits & Bistro, in Beltsville, MD. Served in a snifter. Appearance is dark orange, small head. Aroma was grapefruit, orange, grassy, and a little booze in the background. Taste follows the nose and kicks it up a notch. Caramel sweetness and dank hop flavors, and pretty darn boozy. Palate was medium. This beer is a powerhouse in my book, I could drink it again and again.

Draft at world of beer denver in snifter glass. Hop dominant aroma and taste, taste is strong with over 9% alcohol though not hot. Hazy orange color, white head and very drinkable.

paintedmaple (501) - Fenton, Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2015
Tap...Waldo hit it out of the park with this one. Awesome and vinous aroma leads to a taste of pure ambrosia with all the high hop notes of flowers, pine, and citrus showing off with a background of bittersweet silk. Very deceptively easy drinking...pour me another one.
