TwoSipDip (8880) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2013
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.

daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Orange/gold pour with a white head. Malty peachy goodness meets some juicy citrus hops and a hint of a light bready note. Would like a bit more peach.

Ibrew2or3 (6760) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2014
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.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle:   Dark straw, thick and hazy, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Hoppy nose, faint alcohol, with a peach or apricot background.   Also very soft tea or tobacco leaves.   Smooth up front, hoppy but not biting, fruity that doesn’t really become distinguished until the very end, peach or apricot.   Nice balance, hides the 9.7% fairly well despite smelling it on the nose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Strong yet dank hop profile on the finish, warming, thick and rich, lingering peach/apricot.   Not as fruity as I would have liked, but its was also not a hop bomb.   Decent malt base.

arminjewell (5992) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2013
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, pretty hazy orange pour with fluffy white head, pretty nice looking. Aroma is unfortunately rather dull, however some notes of orange peel, mango, peach, pineapple, some hints of grass, spice, touch of pear, some acidic notes I can only imagine are from the peach, touch of caramel and biscuit in there. Taste is up front a mix of bitter grapefruit, orange, some nondescript pine and grassy notes, touch of biscuit, goes into a middle with sweet peach jam, some nice acidic notes, slight earthy tones but the peach really shines here, before it goes into a slightly bitter, slightly sweet finish. Overall, not bad, but not quite as I expected.

Tap at Happy Gnome. Slightly hazy yellow pour with a big white head. Citrus and peach aroma. Similar taste with some pine. Solid.

mcberko (5917) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
750mL bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a cloudy opaque orange with a medium white head. Aroma brings out loads of peaches, loads of resinous hops, and a solid caramel malt backbone. Flavour brings out moderate peach notes, loads of zesty hops, some Belgian yeast and a nice caramel malt backing. Fairly high carbonated, making this seem like a Belgian Imperial IPA. Finishes zesty, citrusy and peachy. The higher-than-normal carbonation works very well here. Excellent stuff.
