Thanks to theduderules for sharing this awesome growler with tasting group.

Drinking from a Brandy Snifter...sitting on the couches at The Nova.

Delicious scent of peach aroma from the second the growler was popped. This Ipa has a ripe peach smell and finish. You get a little light hops but the showcase here is the peach. Excellent beer I could drink this all day.

Peach in the nose, peach in the middle, peach on the end.

Very well balanced.. Slight citrus hop bite. Smells like a peach snapple. this is a fantastic twist on the classic ipa and kicked in just 15 mintues. I wish they would bottle this.. I would drive to great lengths to drink this again

The favorite craft beer I had during NYC Beer Week. Probably one of the favorites I've had ever. Ever ever? Ever ever. Where can I buy more of this and how. Please let me know and I will.

The appearance is akin to the Jai Alai IPA. Not much different about the orange and red hue with a finger of head. Still, it's as appealing as you'd expect.

The aroma is absolutely delightful. You've got the typical IPA smell of hops, a scent of florals coming in, and then a huge blast of peach. An orchardful.

The taste has the same batch of peaches. Somehow when you get fruit in beers they overpower everything else and you feel like it's juice. In IPA's, I feel like too frequently it's just all hops. Or there's sweetness of malt but nothing to balance it. This has it all. The peaches are present, but tempered by the hops, which bite at the finish and keep it clean.

Mouthfeel is just as well done. Carbonation and a thick medium body keep it interesting.

Best part about this for me is the drinkability, probably because it's an IPA variety that I can finally enjoy. A++. Can't wait to travel to Tampa.

UPDATE: Had on tap also, at Blind Tiger's CCB event. Still measures up.
