Never had anything from these guys, so I was excited to see this on the board at the Bulls Head. I didn't know peaches were involved until I got home.

This was a somewhat hazy golden straw color and it came with a short lived white cap. This was strange and not altogether pleasant, although I did like the second half of the glass better than the first. The hops were muted by an off-tasting, plastic-y tartness. I guess this was the peaches. A little earthy grapefruit pith came through, but the overall bitterness was extremely low. I actually wondered if the bartender brought me the wrong beer, this just did not come across as an IPA. I found some sugar cookie/toffee maltiness as well.

This one wasn't for me and I'm having trouble imagining a how a peachy IPA could be good. Anyway, I hope see these guys on the board again.

I was a bit leery of a fruit IPA, but damn this was tasty and refreshing... Very nicely done... One of my more favorite Pizza Boy offerings...
