The beer pours out like a nice looking NEipa. It forms a pinky worth of bone white crown.

The nose brings a very natural peanut butter hit with a sweetness as well; almost like a nutterbutter. Behind all that is a lingering fruit kick of an ipa. I like the two aspects separately, but not mixing together in this.

The taste brings the same aspects. I would’ve thought this would lean heavily one way or another, not mix like it does. But it really keeps that peanut butter throughout the entirety along with the fruity hops as well. It starts showing some notes of butterscotch as it warms.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied, but thick with the sweetness. It’s not really creamy, and has a little bit of a burn to the ABV.

Overall, it was pulled off much better than expected and a lot differently than expected as well.

Canned 06/27/19.

Pours a hazy golden orange color, large gobs of frothy white lace rising a good two fingers above the body of the beer. Good lace patterning as it settles.

Not sure what I was going to think of hoppy peanut butter, but call me convinced. Rich, creamy peanut butter aromas, cut through by a touch of pineapple, vanilla, and lightly piney hops. Fairly well-rounded, very inviting.

Very similar to the nose, with peanut butter not quite as present as on the nose. The hops are more potent, lightly piney and floral, with an earthy nuttiness serving as a nice compliment to the peanut butter. A bit of that underlying pineapple returns as well, along with some bright, lemony citrus. Definite peanut burps.

Soft mouthfeel, with a medium carbonation and mild residual stickiness. Finishes smooth, no lingering bitterness.

L: Had this on-tap at Westbrook's tasting room, poured into a taster. Had a pale yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: An interesting aroma of peanut butter (of course), citrus fruit, hops, malt, and tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of a below average amount of hops (not a huge factor), light tropical fruit notes (passionfruit), a good shot of peanut butter (the big dog here), and some citrus fruit (orange, lemon). Like the aroma, this is an interesting taste. In general, the peanut butter meshes well with the IPA elements, but it is strange at first. Pretty tasty.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: This beer won't appeal to everyone, but it has a weird kind of allure to it. Worth a look.
