3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Peaches and/or tropical fruit dominates the aroma from the moments the bottle is opened. A white ring floats atop a slightly hazy golden amber pour providing moderate lacing. Tropical fruit, citrus, pinches of pine, and biscuit malt all igreet the palate. While the hops are definately present, they don’t blow your head off. Medium body and medium carbonatin. Crisp mouthfeel with a rather dry finish. Overall, as Imperial IPA’s go, this one was just peachy!

New copper color with a slight haze. Smallish white ring head. Aroma has weak peach notes as does the.flavor. its dominated by sharp bitter hoppy citrus character with a malty backbone.

I'm in love. Had it on tap. Sweet, smooth, and delicious. Highly recommended. Not peach-y, and not super hoppy. Drinks almost like a Belgian ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Happy Gnome St Paul, Nice fruity nose, some hops in there too, taste is like a solid IIPA from years past made of basic hop variants, then the sour twinge of the peaches comes in and lightly pulls the side of your mouth inwards. Not what I wanted in a beer, but maybe the start of Sour IPA... oh wait.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear orange-gold pour with a large, fluffy white head. The aroma has a strong peach character as well as some pine, orange and biscuit malt. The flavor is very similar. I get some sweet peach notes that cancel out much of the hop bitterness. There is also some pine and biscuit malt notes. Very tasty. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Great fruited IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours with a deep murky gold body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet sugar maltiness, a nice degree of citrus hops, floral hops and more sugary sweetness. The taste is pretty thick with sweet malts, citrus hops flavor and modest fruity notes heading to midway. Toward the finish the hops roll into a decent load of hop bitterness amid all the sugar sweet malts and fruity flavors. Pretty nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml thanks to Nick. Clear orange pour with minimal white head. Aroma is candy peaches, and sweet malt. Taste is artificial sweet peaches, clean malt. ABV is well hidden and not too sticky sweet. DIPA have fallen out of my favor in general, but this is solid and not too sticky.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Found this kind of disappointing. Tastes more like a wheat/whit beer or something Belgian than a real DIPA. The peach flavor doesn’t really add that much. Very astringent taste--actually kind of unpleasant. And I really wanted to like this one...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A solid IPA. I’m just not 100% sure as to whether the inclusion of peaches works here. They’re present in the flavor, but the overall profile is not one of medley.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Euclid Hall. Pour is hazy orange with a frothy white head and great lacing. Big earthy, fruity, oaky peach skin, doughy, caramelly, tangerine, almost dirty, orange peel, and marmalade in the aroma. Taste is earthy, apricot skin, bready, spicy hops, pepper, candied oranges, sweet malt, and doughy with a light bitter finish. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Mused to believe its 10%+ ABV.
