Notes: So nice, we brewed it twice! Great Notion & Block 15 have teamed up once again to brew this special ale, blending techniques and ideas from both breweries. Peach Punch is a luscious, fruit-forward IPA, fermented with peaches & apricots and dry-hopped with massive amounts of Galaxy & Mosaic hops.

Glowing yellow tinted orange juice with a frothy white head that leaves a respectable coverage and mild lacing.

Burnt rubber hops hard off the bat to the nose! Subtle fruits at first develop as it warms. Peach and apricot as advertised, leaning more towards the latter, with a dash of vanilla.

Flavor follows with burnt rubber leading the way for orchard fruit skins and fleshy pulps. The apricot once again really shines as it warms. Honeydew melon creeps in and out.

Thin and juicy with mild carbonation, a slightly dirty feel, and a decent splash of bitterness. Easy to drink.

Somehow, this seems like one IPA that will do great with a little age to it. I think the fruit additions will be good contributors once the other pungance mellows out. Maybe.

Cheers.

Canned 08/03/17

Bright hazy brew, deep gold color. Thick crackily white head forms, bubbles down and leaves tiny amounts of lace. Seems to be some pulp to this beer. Actually looks more and more like orange juice.

A lot of ripe fruit to this. Peach and apricot yes, orange, tangerine and some stone fruit. Underlying dankyness. Grapefruit. Smells more and more like juice with each whiff.

Loads of peaches, and loads of apricot. Grapefruit juice, I mean, this is fruit juice in a can. Oranges, tangerine, this is a fruit basket. Underlying bitterness but the sweetness is strong. Tangy afterbite.

Medium bodied, highly carbed juice.

JUICE. JUICE JUICE JUICE. This is the juiciest IPA I've ever had. The hops and bitterness provide a nice underlying backbone to counter the sweetness. Great beer here.

4.43/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Look: Pours like orange juice in the glass. Completely opaque, gorgeous pale orange color

Smell: Bursting with ripe stone fruits and citrus. Peach predominates, but I also get some candied citrus fruit as well, almost a candied orange peel type scent

Taste: This is aptly named. The peach flavor really does come out punching. Peach puree with some cutting tangerine citrus in there, rounding out with mild bitterness from the hops

Feel: Full, fluffy, soft and smooth mouthfeel reminiscent of the NEIPA style.

Overall: Excellently crafted NEIPA style beer. The taste is a little one note, but it is one hell of a note. The peach flavor is fantastic and the citrus that cuts through lightens it up just enough to make it incredibly refreshing even in the worst of heat. I would buy this again and again
