Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Happy IPA Day! Served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a somewhat hazy gold color with a two-finger head and a good amount of visible carbonation.

S: Smell cedar wood, citrus (primarily grapefruit) hops but with more sweetness that the Humidor Jai Alai. Don't get a lot of true peach aroma here.

T: Excellent. Follows the nose well. The sweet peach flavor shows up here and really mellows or rounds out the cedar flavor. Both compliment the citrus & caramel malt flavors.

M: Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation sensation. Alcohol only mildly noticeable. The hang is hop bitterness & cedar dryness. Very nice.

O: This is tasty! Can't quite decide if I prefer it to the Humidor Jai Alai or not, but either way it's very good. Highly recommended.

Growler generously shared at the Peg's tasting on 3/8/13.

A- Pours a hazy dark gold color, some floaty sediment things, topped with a white head.

S- Amazing peach aroma, some grassy, piney hops are beneath it, but mostly I'm just getting a whole load of peaches. Smells damn nice.

T- Lots of peach, grassy, citrusy hops, and mild cedar flavors. Slight malt sweetness. The peach and hop flavors work really nicely together.

M- Medium-bodied, nice carbonation, dry finish.

O- A very nice IPA, the peach is a great idea and works well with the hops, with the cedar adding some nice complexity, very drinkable and tasty stuff.
