Peach slush? Yeah, I know that a lot of breweries like 450 North have gotten on board with the slush trend, but this seems to be the basis off of which a lot of those beers were based. If you like slush drinks from 7-11 or the like, then this would be up your alley as it was sweet and slick enough to go right down but I had a hard time categorizing this as a New England IPA as I feel that this should be in a class by itself!

Sure, this poured like peach and had enough head to top the liquid off. That took a while to settle as there was plenty of lacing left behind with much of it in the form of one thick ring near the top of my pint glass. Peach, artificial sugar, lactose, and malt were in the nose as the taste felt like something that I'd get from a convenience store machine that has it's contents constantly swirling around. Sticky citrus, apricot, and orange blossom came through in the taste as there were deep floral and earthy hops that gave this depth while making me feel a bit uneasy at the same time. This wasn't a bad beer as it was just *different* and even as it warmed up, I had a hard time fully warming up to it...

Not a lot of booze to this but with so much going on, the alcohol was about the last aspect of this beer on my mind. Best before 26 JUN 18, as written on the bottom of the can, this didn't have any sediment on the bottom of the liquid as it held up well over the last year and a half. Quite a first impression from this brewery as I've had enough of their collaborations with Tired Hands but never anything strictly by them. Worth a go once to see what's out there, as this beer was as "out there" as anything I've had as of late...

Poured into a 5 oz taster, then drank the rest from the can.
Look: super hazy, essentially no head. (For some reason I didn't write the color down, so it was probably a deep yellow-orange)
Smell: holy peaches my man, lots of stone fruit in this guy.
Taste: Millions of peaches, peaches for me. Also some lactose my dudes.
Mouthfeel: Lactose my dudes.
Overall: Really, really liked this. Definitely more fruity than many IPAs, but this does it well. The stone fruit is strong without being too much, and it's just so good. If you like bitterness, this is not the beer for you. It was beer number 5 or 6 in the tasting, so my written notes are obviously top notch my dudes.

Not an overwhelming peach presence in this offering from Omnipollo, and if lactose is present, it just danced through. It's a decent NEIPA, but nothing remarkable based on my tasting. Looked to be a lot more interesting than it actually was, considering the "slush" hype, Nothing even remotely "slushy" about it. I'd drink another, but only if someone else was buying.

Going in I expect a Peach IPA and really nothing more
A - Good carbonation with a 1/2 of head that fizzes out to a rather thin layer of lace. Color Is a rather hazy amber brown.
S - Peach and IPA bitter hops. On par.
T - Those who say sour are liars it's barley as peachy as a sugar juice. But also it's not very hoppy and bitter as initial smells. I would give it some marks if it had some vanilla from the lactose sugars but really its just a decent tasting IPA.
M - Smooth and crisp if you were to tell me its a lactose IPA with peach I would just assume so under the fact that the IPA kind of tastes like that but nothing more.

Overall a very easy going crushable IPA but for the price it wasn't worth the hype.

Pours a hazy peach color with some fine foam.

Smell is very peachy with just some hints of lemon, yeast and some minerals.

Taste is slighty sweet and sour with a lot of peaches and some citrus. Mild and smooth bitterness. Very easy to drink, but a little bit one dimensional.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a very refreshing beer tht doesn't have a whole lot of depths.

Can into snifter. Best before is mid April 2019, so not sure the canned on

Pours slightly hazy, but relatively traditional looking. Some head but not pulpy like some fruit lactos
Faint waft of peach, and citrus
Taste follows. Not much bitterness (good) but not much peach or tropical hops either (bad)
Feel is good - chewy

Overall okay. Nothing special and leaves behind the US fruit IPA fad that's happening now

The CANQuest (tm) is rolling along in high gear as New Catch-Up Beer Sunday (Week 696) CANtinues in all of its unabated glory!

From the CAN: "India Pale Ale brewed with Peach and Lactose Sugar".

I LOVE days like today! I am rolling through the backlog, I have been to see a friend on her birthday & while the CANs are piling up, I am listening to VU, MC5, RvsTM, GBH & the rest of the alphabet & the number system. The neighbors are banging on the walls, the bulls are banging on the doors & I'm banging my latest squeeze! Life is good at Chez Woody.

I beCAN by Crack!ing this one open & CANmencing a slow, gentle Glug until I realized that it was futile. I then decided to CANcentrate on developing two-plus fingers of fizzy, foamy, rocky, tawny head with limited retention that left decent lacing behind. Color was a deeply-hazy/lightly-cloudy Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5). Nose was very fruity! Peaches? Apricots? Peaches? But in preserves, with a pleasant bready malty backbone! Mmm. Peach preserves on toast with coffee? Perfect. But, is this what I want in the style from an AIPA? NO! Where are my nice hops? Where is the bitterness? Ever had Peach Butter (as opposed to/related to Apple Butter)? I have & this was much akin to that. It's beautiful for breakfast, but when I am trying (now desperately) to assuage my Hops Jones, this jazz just ain't makin' it, dig? Lissen, man, I don't have a monkey on my back but a screeching, howling cross between a gorilla, a baboon & a mandrill, the latter of which likes to put his ass in my face for an added benefit. Sheewit, a habit like this needs fed & this was like a drop outta a baby dropper! Aaah! Man, I'm itching so hard that I'm ready to lather up and shave my neck, dig? Yeah, I get the peach scene, but it ain't peachy when yer hurtin' for some hops action. Wahh! I'm gonna finish this off with its semi-dry finish & then I'm gonna score something that'll fill the spike right proper. YMMV.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of peaches are present in the nose along with hints of orange citrus.
T: The taste follows the smell and has a blend of peach and orange flavors with a light to moderate amount of bitterness. Faint hints of lactose sugar are perceptible, which start contributing sweetness as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. It has a little crispness on the mouthfeel along with bits of smoothness from the lactose.
O: The addition of peaches and lactose sugar definitely makes this beer unique. It manages to have a good balance between the bitterness and crispness of an IPA with the fruitiness of peach juice.

Serving type: can

Can from ABV.

A mostly clear orange with a dense, off-white head with excellent retention and lacing, this looks solid. The nose has a noticeable creamy lactose character, along with moderate peach note. There's a moderate amount of fruit as well. Honey, mild orange peel and Meyer lemon notes are present. The palate opens with a moderate bitterness, mildly astringent with grapefruit juice, a mild peach note and some fleshy orange. The lactose is present as a moderate sweetness that lingers. Moderately juicy, this beer is medium in body with a moderate peach flavor that lingers, this beer is rather muddled. Decent.

"Best by 6/26/18"; drank 5/19/18 @ the Yarchives.

Cloudy orange appearance; champagne bubbles throughout.

A violent pour yielded a huge white head; strong, frothy lace.

Peach & mild pine notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Peach & meld pine bite in the flavors; pretty mild overall, just slightly sweet. The dryness gives this perhaps too much balance, oddly...OK, but not one I'll seek out again.

Pours a clear gold color. 2/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of citrus hops, floral hops, earthiness, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastea of citrus hops, floral hops, earthiness, hint of citrus, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, smooth, low bitterness, and great blend.

look: mostly clear honey colored. Slightly hazy. fluffy head on the pour that settles into a white cap.
smell: citrusy, floral, bright.
taste: much like the nose. easy drinker. the lactose gives an interesting creamy contrast and keeps the hops to a subtle bitterness.
