Golden peach blonde with a nice head.

Aromas of stone fruits; peach, apricot. Also, mango, papaya, and fresh citra hop.

Flavor is fruity , peachy, hints of hop oil and resin, and some faint pine. Some armpit.

Feel is resiny, sort of dry.

Not a great ipa. I'd end up giving it away if I bought a 6 pack.

Poured from a can with a best by date of 5/17/17; into a tulip.
Appearance- goldish Orange with a few streams of carbonation mixed with some sediment that is detectable upon examination; head is a white, medium thick that diminishes slowly to a thin layer. Lacing is strong.
Smell - sweet peach and citrus fruit engulf the nose!
Taste - sweet, but not overly so as some nice bitter hop oils combine with a tinge of alcohol to mellow it out; rather enjoyable!
Feel - light body, though enough booze is present to give it a healthy lean towards medium; sweet, bitter and juicy!
Overall - a nice change of pace IPA as the sweetness a refreshing nature makes this a nice beer to kick back with on a warm day and yet the 8% ABV gives it enough muscle to keep you at bay. The $13.99 per sixer price tag is a definite turn off though.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours faintly hazy golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a firm layer and leaves some very nice lacing.

S: Fruity, peachy, floral, a little bready malt, and plenty of caramel sweetness.

T: Fruity, soft peach, maybe a little mango, floral, a little spice, bready malt, and some caramel sweetness.

M: A bit on the fuller side of medium body, mild carbonation, creamy smooth, a little alcohol warmth.

O: Fruit + IPA doesn't always = a winner, but this is pretty solid.

Hazy yellow peach (go figure) body with a frothy white cap. Aromas of peach leap out from the onset. Peach and stone fruit character up front with a dank, resinous finish. Some earthy overtones. Decent.

On tap at Public at the Brickyard in Wichita. Poured into a shaker pint.

A very nice beer with one serious flaw as the aroma was almost non-existent for me. Otherwise a hoppy but not bitter beer. Goes down way too easy. Be careful out there. 4

A - Pours a pale golden with an off white head lots of great lacing. 4.25

S - This is what is missing. I wasn't even aware that this was a "peach" IPA as the bar description failed to note this. Definitely no peach for me. 3.25

T - Malty before hoppy. 4

MF - Smooth and creamy medium body with a semi dry finish. 4.5

This hazy, burnt-orange brew is covered with a full finger of haphazard off-white froth.

Aroma is of equal parts peach, hops and grain.

Tastes malty and fruity with a dollop of caramel before a nice citrus hop bite comes into play.

Lighter side of medium and imminently quaffable with maybe just a little expense charged from the hop account.

There's no shame to this beer's balance, and I can see unapologetically consuming large quantities.

Orange color with nice head poured from the bottle. Peachy hop smell, taste doesn't mesh great

Pours a copper tinged gold color. Clear, crisp, effervescent initially although it eventually settles down. Thin white head dissipates leaving no lacing or residual head.

Smell has notes of mango, peach, and apricot giving way to a hoppy aroma.

Taste follows the nose with notes of mango, peach and apricot. Lots of bitterness on the finish with an unripe peach like flavor. This is called a peach DIPA and there is certainly peach notes here, but calling it a peach DIPA seems a bit far. The peach is more a flavor that you notice from the hops used, not a strong flavor. That being said it is a tasty beer.

Feel is mild carbonation, bit sweet on the tongue. Definitely what you'd expect from a DIPA.

Overall a solid DIPA in its own right. That being said, for a "peach DIPA" I'd love more peach flavor here.
