Rocked a bottle while tailgating before the first game of the Nevada/SDSU baseball series. Future 1st round pick Shipley pitching!

Pours the color of a peach, off to a great start, it even produced a pretty head on it, 3/5" range. Even for being poured into a "red solo cup" (ah damn, one of the worst songs ever), it still had great retention, and did its best to give lace on the slick surface.

Aroma, juicy and sour. We're doing great here. The peach is all over it, smells like a peach and apricot blend. Thinking Cascade already. The taste hits you with a MASSIVE amount of fruit and sourness. The rye still makes for a sturdy body. Alcohol, nowhere to be found in the mouthfeel. Plenty of citrus to taste throughout it. Are peaches even citrus? Anyways, it has that orange like citrus sweetness. I don't want to understate this: its deliciously sour. Sourheads rejoice!

Would never have thought they could really improve sour in the rye, but lo and behold, this is better than the original. Now if you were huge on the rye, you might be disappointed, because the rye, from a taste perspective, is not as pungent as it was in the base version. But don't lose sight of the fact that the rye still makes a very nice foundation for the beer, even if the spice aspect of it isn't there. The caramel undercurrent is minimal and well placed. Oak in the right amount.

One of the best new beers of 2013. Maybe the best so far.

Thanks for sharing Chad! Pours a hazy orange color with a golden hue. Large whit head that goes down quickly. Scent is absolutely magnificent. Smells like normal SitR, but with a heavy peach presence. It basically smells like the beer was ran through a randall with peaches, which says a lot for a bottle conditioned beer. The oak and rye are still heavy in the nose, but fresh peaches come through nicely. Taste is just as lovely. The peaches are not as noticeable at first, but as the beer warms, the peach flavors STAND OUT. So much peach... with some rye spiciness and slightly acetic. This beer is DAMN GOOD. I wish I had the luxury of opening this bottle side by side with normal SitR, but I am not a member of HS. I'm very happy I got to try this amazing beer. Almost flawless.
