Very Good
Notes: IPA brewed with wheat. Hopped intensely with Simcoe. Conditioned on local peaches at a rate of 30 pounds per barrel. That's a lot of peaches.

thanks to my brother for sharing this growler, enjoyed chilled in a teku-review from notes.

The color is golden hazed with a thin white head with fine bead and light lace. The smell is fruity with a slight floral aroma and light yeast ester with mild herbal hop scent. The feel is lightly fruity and sublte malt in the texture with a light sweetness level and moderately bitter with gentle fruitiness and slight tangy fruit quality with yeast dry in the finish and lihgt alcohol influence.

The taste has a good amount of hop flavor with light tangy citrus quality with some acidity and fruity taste of stone fruit with a mild peach taste. The peach is not very sweet and seems like it may contribute more to the feel than flavor with some hop bitterness but not a lot of hop flavor in the residual taste, just bitter and pretty dry as the finish is semi-bitter. I consider this a pretty decent IPA, but not as exceptional as some other fruit enhanced IPAs from Tired Hands.

From 10/04/14 notes, on tap at the brewpub.

Pours a murky, bright orange color, with one inch of off white head and low carbonation evident. Oranges, peaches, fruity malts, citrus hops, and floral hops. Medium body and low carbonation; no bitterness and easy to drink.

Overall this was quite good, although when I saw it had a ton of peaches and I was hoping for more. Mago Tago and their Key Like beers have had so much flavor from the fruit and the peaches are very light here. Still good but not on the Mago Tago level.

Yellow with peachy hues, no head really at all, and not much lacing. Amazing aroma of peaches, hoppy citrus, more peach and a touch of wheatiness. Taste is slightly tart from the peaches with a great peach backbone and a balance of hoppy bite and wheat malt backbone. Mouthfeel is lighter end of medium, slightly flat in feel and dry on the finish. Fruity take on IPA. Some of it works, some of it doesn't but it wins in aroma and taste.
