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.

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.
