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.

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.
