Tried on-tap at GABS in Melbourne. An IPA, unsurprisingly, brewed with peaches.
Pours an amber shade, quite hazy with a solid weight to the body. Head is pale, forming a solid film and ring which leaves streaky lacing. It looks pretty decent—perhaps just a little bit dark.
Disappointing on the nose: very disappointing in fact. Cheap white bread and tomato ketchup, with just a suggestion of a savoury fruit character. Sweetness like Munich malt comes through as well. Hmm.
Light fruit on the entry to the palate, with more bready overtones. There's a spicy character in the mix a little later, but still that savoury fruit character, stacks of slightly yeasty bread and a dark aromatic malt character. Finish is empty, with lingering savoury fuzz on the tongue.
Feel has a bit of weight to it, but there's not much flavour for it to work with efficiently.
Overall. I'm unimpressed. Savoury when I expected fruit sweetness. No IPA profile or bite, and where's the peach? Sorry, I was not a fan.

Pours an amber-tinged gold colour, slightly cloudy. Cream head with large bubbling around the edge, doesn't stick around. Looks alright.
Smells grainy, and quite sweet. Touch of oatmeal and some sweet spice - cinnamon mostly. Peach maybe? But not much hop. OK I guess.
Taste has more peach prominence. Starts out malty and nutty with a touch of peanut and some more of that oatmeal character. Apple/pear appears on the mid-palate and then peach comes through on the back. Odd kind of spicy character with a touch of capsicum. I don't think it's because this was preceded by the Garage Project Death from Above, but still an IPA should be able to hold its own, and I feel this is mostly lacking hopwise.
Decent body, holds together nicely and goes down well enough.
Yeah, oddly spicy flavour here. Not what I expected, and a bit lacking in hops, but OK otherwise.
