Paid $2.29 for a single at Jungle Jim's...
The beer pours an amber colored base with a moderate white head, excellent head retention and a few specks of lacing throughout the tasting. The aroma consists of a moderate alcohol note, followed by hops, peach, and a very mellow malt smell.
The taste consists of a slightly think and chewy texture, apricots stake a large portion of the taste and a mild hop tone with moderate carbonation compliments this beer. Very good in the mouth despite feeling a touch too thick and at 7% abv, any note of alcohol noted in the smell are nowhere to be found during the delivery. I would probably only drink two before selecting another, lighter brew.
Final Thought: Great effort for a fruit and vegetable beer, despite it being heavy at times.

A - Copper color with slight haze, small white head, extensive lacing.
S - Fairly muted, flat hop notes, malts in the form of pilsner coming through loud and clear.
T - Hop is mostly in the form of grass notes. A mild fruity note coupled with a cracker and grain malt hit. Turns bitter on the close, illustrating the serious hopping.
M - Given how bitter the turn is on the close, it is surprising how crisp the feel is. There is a gradual build, though, and it does burden the beer a bit you move into the second 6 oz.
O - This hybrid beer promises fruit, but though I think it is a decent IPA - nothing special, mind, but fairly clean and thoroughly hopped - the fruit is mostly lost. The only hint to its presence is a certain sweetness in the middle. Supporting role, indeed.
