3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2015 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. Hard to believe its 10%+ ABV.

You definitely cannot tell that this is a 10.1% beer. Perfect balance of sweet peaches and bitter hops.

Great beer. Hazy pour with slight scent of peaches. Not too sweet. Still keeps its main essence as an IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Choice City Butcher. Appearance: finger of white head that does not last, cloudy, orange-yellow color. Aroma: citrus, peach, caramel, floral. Palate: light body, dry finish, alcohol warming sensation, lively carbonation, hoppy finish. Taste: slight sweetly tart front, right to bitter middle and very bitter finish. Overall, great balance for fruity IPA, unique.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2014 750ml Bottle. The pour was a seriously murky peach orange that almost looks like fruit juice with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that slowly receded, down to a medium puddled film and collar with excellent sheets of sticky lacing.
The aroma was of pine hops from the get go along with a caramel malt and a lightly sweet yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit), a decent odor of peaches and a bit of apricot.
The taste was mildly malty sweet with just a touch of caramel and a strong peach presence pretty much throughout. The finish progressed slowly, with a nice hoppy bitterness and a bit of citrus towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow, with the peachy fruity taste giving way slightly to a mild hoppy bitterness and a slowly creeping alcohol warming.
Mouthfeel was almost medium in body with a mildly dry texture and a carbonation that just exceeded mild in voracity.
Overall this was an intriguing IPA with a lightly sweet fruitiness, which I have to say mixed superbly with the piney citrus bitterness this brew possesses allowing for a rather good concealment of the high ABV, thus creating a nice smooth tasty drinking experience…

Bottle @ Richard’s tasting. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Sweet caramel and peach on the nose. Light citrus, mostly orange, but some grapefruit as well. Sweet flavor of orange, peach, and caramel. Grapefruit, a touch of grass, and minimal bitterness.

Not much of an aroma, but the taste is killer. Sweet, smooth, a slight peach and solid hopiness without any resin finish. Alcohol is hidden well too.
