I tried this for the first time at an Odell beer dinner at Butcher and the Boar a few years back and stands out as the first IPA that my wife actually drank a whole glass of.
Aroma is zingy and full of citrus and sweet malt. As it warms up I get more peach or apricot aroma that stands out.
Appearance is very clear golden color with a huge thick white head.
Flavor is very sweet and sugary up front. Fades to a tropical fruit (mango) and peach finish. There is a hint of astringency in the finish but still borders on too sweet at the end. This year's batch seems sweeter than I remember, but may be why Sj will drink it.
Overall not bad, and a very interesting take on a fruit beer. I'm always excited to try anything other than a wheat fruit beer! Peach is a pretty subtle flavor and I think they pulled it off in this beer. I can't drink too much of this due to the sweetness.
