Poured from the growler into a Chimay goblet.

Pours a clear amber with a layer of off white head. There is a light peach note with a good cedar and hop presence. I'm getting more peach in the taste, but there is still a nice cedar presence. Not quite as much as the regular humidor. Just a touch of vanilla with a hoppy finish. Nice offering.

On tap at Tipples (I THINK this is the Humidor version given the dryness). Pours a cloudy orange yellow with small head. Smells like you would think, and mostly all peach. Flavor follows with peach up front, followed by a bitter finish with lingering peach here. Any malt or hop taste is very subdued, but the bitter balances any sweetness perfectly. A neat beer. Not mind blowing, but a lot of fun to drink. Yum.

One of 6 samples at the tasting room 1/29/14

It's a bright coppery orange with a wispy but strong off-white head. Retention of the foamy cap that's left is good, and some thin webbing forms between the spotting.
Peach! At least, I got a lot of it in the nose as well as the flavor. My wife actually had a hard time getting the peach. I though it was fresh, juicy, and practically fuzzy with a natural essence to it. It's not overly sweet or unripe, landing with all the balance of sweet, tart and slightly sour in the end that it should have. There's also a nice backbone of leaf and pine, something a little dry that gets more dry along the way, and a softer kind of white pepper note. There's a bit of citrus rind and pulp, but it gets jumbled. Regardless, this is good stuff as a craft, though it may not fit for everyone.
The body is almost light but eases gently into medium. It's lightly crisp and smooth with a bit of fluffiness in it.

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.
