A: The beer is very hazy dark yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface and a bit of lacing down the bottom sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of apricots and peaches are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and starts off with flavors of apricots and peaches before transitioning into spicy flavors from the habaneros that linger into the finish.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a light to moderate amount of heat from the habanero peppers.
O: The ingredients in this beer might initially seem to be like a strange combination but they really work well together and present an interesting contrast between fruitiness and spiciness in the taste.

Serving type: can

16 oz can- Pours a very dark orange with a medium white head. Aroma is peach puree, mild hops, peppercorn spice, mandarin. The flavor is similar, peach puree, orange, juice with the rind. Some resemblance of beer somewhere here. Tasty though.

Nice orange hue with an orange kiss complexion. At first taste you think you're sipping the sweet nectar of a pruned gash. A few sips later and you realize your drowning your palate in a sour, unclean hairy snatch that needs a serious douche. Like that which would be found between Susie's thighs if you could actually move the cellulite to get between them.

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.

12oz bottle. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of orange, grapefruit and toasted caramel. Sweet tropical fruitiness with a toasted caramel finish.
