12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Nice clarity from this pale golden copper hued brew, lacing stays for a while. Smells of stone fruit, citrus zest, and there is a little bit of pepperiness. Smooth, just enough bitterness for an IPA. Lots of Apricot and Peach on the palate with a slow warming Habanero flavor. Juicy and bitter finish. An all around good flavored IPA, like the balance and it ends up being quite drinkable.

Pours a fairly clear orange. It took a pretty aggressive pour to raise a one finger head which quickly dissipated to a thin layer of foam. Well, well...what do we have here? This ain't yo mamma's IPA...or then again, maybe it is! The label promises peach, apricot and habanero. They are all readily apparent in the nose and the taste. Plenty of hops bitterness (appropriate to an IPA) but there is a perceived sweetness from all that fruit flavor. The habanero adds a little kick but nowhere near as aggressive as some pepper beers I've had. I like this one quite a bit. The nose is reminiscent of Magic Hat #9 but the first taste dispels any thoughts of comparison. Way more going on here than in #9.
