On draft at Cicero’s in an 8 ounce glass. This was darker gold and opaque. Peaches galore in here with tangerines. Hops are citrus. The combination makes for a nice beer. Alcohol was not hidden and was a detraction. This was different and enjoyed despite the ABV coming through.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Pours very cloudy orange/peach color. Aroma of citrus, peach, touch of pine. Flavor is citrus, peach with a hint of lemon grass, floral and pine. Very easy drinking with a citrus and peach sweetness in the fore and finish, but an extremely subtle piney bitterness in the middle. Well done without an overly sweet character.

Bottle pours a cloudy golde/orange with a huge off-white head. Aroma of canned peaches, fruity tropical and citrus hops. Peaches and fruits balanced nicely with slightly bready caramel malt with a little bitter hop resin. Not amazing but pretty enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle through trade so looking forward to this one! Pour has a hazy orange color with a thin coating of white head. Aroma has light peach puree, sweet hops, mild citrus, and some malt. Mouth feel is medium light and there is plenty of carbonation. Flavor has creeping bitterness, citrus, light peach, and some heat on the finish. I was really hoping for a bit more punch to the peaches.

Bottle thanks to adnielsen ! Pours a hazy orangey brown color with a two finger eggshell foam. On the nose there is some nice fruit driven hop notes of peach, citrus and a bit of mango and some sweet honey. The palate follows the nose with great integration of peach and hops... clean wel balanced and a very easy drinker at almost 10%abv. Nice caramel sweetness rounds out the background nicely. Solid beer... a bit pricey but worth trying !

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home picked up at RJs Fort Collins. Christ, this sold out quickly for the number of bottles that were released. Pours a milky yellow orange appearance with a foamy, creamy colored head. Tropical fruity, big peachy, mango, somewhat spicy, herbal hoppy aroma. Chewy peach pulp, quite city, apricot/mango, vanilla, somewhat bitter, herbal hoppy flavor. Actually quite a bit of bitterness on the finish. Carbonation is a bit heavy. Pretty tasty but doesn’t blow my mind.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smell is mostly citrusy hops. No peach smell. Not really tasting much peach either. Taste is slightly sweet and hoppy. A solid imperial IPA that’s well balanced and very drinkable, just not worth the price based on other options out there.

750 bottle, cloudy pale straw color with lacing. Peach and orange citrus nose. Well blended pink grapefruit and orange flavors. Love the mix of sweet fruits and bitterness along with all the hop flavors. Big mouthfeel with a long finish of dry fruit flavors.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear apricot pour with a dense ivory foam that left significant cobwebs inside the glass. Peach, honey, caramel, and tangerine in the nose. Malty peach and citrus flavor. Not sure that I’d call this an IPA. Definitely not amped to IIPA status from a flavor profile standpoint. Too sweet...disappointed.
