look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Took a while to pour from carbonation. Pours very hazy/murky deep orange/copper color with a 2-3 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with insane retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts the whole glass. Thick foamy lacing clings on the the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big fairly tart/tangy peaches, fruit skin/pits, mandarin orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/zest, wood, light pepper/pine, vanilla, cream, wheat, biscuit dough, light caramel, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of peaches, citrus/fruity/tropical hops, lactose, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big fairly tart/tangy peaches, fruit skin/pits, mandarin orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/zest, wood, light pepper/pine, vanilla, cream, wheat, biscuit dough, light caramel, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel/zest, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, spicy bitterness; and fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/tangy peaches, fruit skin/pits, mandarin orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, lime, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, guava, berries, citrus peel/zest, wood, light pepper/pine, vanilla, cream, wheat, biscuit dough, light caramel, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of peaches, citrus/fruity/tropical hops, lactose, and bready malt flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness and tart/tangy fruit balance; with no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitter/tartness, and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready, and lightly slick/sticky/tangy mouthfeel that is great. Mild increasing warmth of 10% after the finish. Overall this is an excellent fruited milkshake NEDIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of peaches, citrus/fruity/tropical hops, lactose, and bready malt flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink for the big ABV, with the mildly bitter/tart/tangy/drying finish; great soft feel. Feels like Citra/Centennial. Extremely juicy hops/fruit, with light dankness; with a balanced lactose, and wheat/oat/malt backbone. Not overly sweet/heavy from lingering dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example. Got better as it warmed. The over carbonation definitely made this smoother on the ABV.

4.13/5  rDev +3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Huge, insane head production, exceeding four fingers of foam and requiring multiple pours for one can into a 20 ounce glass. Retention is insane, as well. Almost qualifies as a gusher. Body is an opaque burnt orange and very lively.

Surprisingly bitter and traditional aroma, with pine, grapefruit, mandarin orange, brown sugar, honey, mango, peach, grass, mint, basil, and berries. The added peaches aren't over the top on the nose.

Definitely sweeter on the palate. An almost metallic tinge to the peaches as the skins and pits present themselves, along side a honey bread malt base. Far less hoppy and bitter than expected based on the nose, but also far more approachable and drinkable than most double-digit ABV brews. Other flavors are vanilla, light orange, a touch of mint, lemon, and of course peaches.

Far more drinkable and approachable than any comparable 10% IPA. Moderate-to-full body, but very lively and smooth.

3.76/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Undated 12 ounce can but released earlier in December. Poured into tulip.
Upon opening, instantly foaming out of the can. I had to quickly pour in glass but it was too much. Overflowed out of my glass.
Murky amber body, orange tinted head, spotty, sticky lacing.
The nose is grapefruit first, citrus, peach nectar, honey cake.
Taste is peach gummy rings, heavy canned peach syrup, pretty peach intense, bitter citrus, candied lemon peel. Brown sugar and caramel.
Creamy mouthfeel, and an overall slickness. Hides the 10% well.
Overall, besides the initial gush, a solid fruit beer. Not sure it fits the style though.

4.16/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a super muddy/murky/cloudy dirty red-ish orange. Giant foamy/fluffy off white head. Settles to a decent thick to thin layer of head thru out. Never fades completely. Lacing is sticky at first then ends up oily and soapy.

Smell is crazy juicy and fruity. Big aromas of peach, mangos, mandarin oranges. Sweet carmalized sugar and molasses.

Taste is pretty much the nose. Tons of peach and sweet cream. Mangos and a bit orange rind. Super sugary sweet. Hops pop in at the end of the taste. Mostly citrus fruit foward. Citra or simcoe, maybe? A malty back bone helps out but doesnt over power.

Body is medium to full. Creamy and smooth. Light sticky after taste.

For a heavy 10% abv its very well hidden and is easily drinkable.
A sweet but great offering.
