Notes via stream of consciousness: Beautiful label design. Peach and passionfruit - sounds good. I'll assume that's fruit added on top of whatever hops are in there although the label isn't exactly clear about that. It's poured a cloudy golden orange beneath an inch of rocky white foam that's slowly but steadily dropping. The aroma is fruity, and certainly contains peach, but it's not too different from some other IPAs that I've sampled which contained no extra fruit. Ahh, maybe I'm wrong about that; it seems to be missing the greater amount of other hop aromas that those beers have had. Any way you look at it it's pleasant and enticing. On to the flavor... well there's certainly fruit there, and it appears to be real without any extracts added in. Lots of peach and plenty of passion fruit. I'm going to go with mango as well. It's really nice. There's a bit of tartness to it, and a very delicate spiciness that helps to balance it. It's sweet but not sugary sweet. There's not as much hop flavor as I thought there would be but that's certainly fine. It finishes with a little bit of grassiness and spiciness lingering, helping it to dry. It's smooth and remarkably drinkable with a refreshing character from the fruit and a touch of acidity. I'd call it medium bodied with a slightly lower than average carbonation level. I'm not sure if that's good or bad but I'm going to guess that they've kept it where it is to cut down on some of the carbonic acidity that comes with a higher carbonation level. I'm noticing now, more than halfway through, a touch of alcohol. I find it pleasant and balancing but how strong is this? 8% - perfect. It certainly didn't seem that strong at the outset, which to be honest makes it a little bit of a dangerous brew. I could have easily jumped into a second can of this if I wasn't paying so much attention to it, and then ended up a little worse for the wear. What else to say? I think the aroma is great, the balance between the peach and passion fruit is great, and it's flavorful, refreshing, and highly drinkable rather than overblown. It's one of the best fruit beers I've ever had - keep in mind, there are a lot of them, but it's somewhere up there. Yeah, I could certainly go for more of this and I'm not really even that big of a fan of peach.

3.79/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Canned 8/24/20.

A - Very hazy dark orange color with a slight pink twinge to it. Lacing is light and thin.

S - Just as the label says - peach and passionfruit on the nose.

T - Passionfruit and peach with some slight juiciness with a slight tart juicy twang. Ends on the sweeter, fruitier side.

M - Thick, smooth, and with sharp pricklies underneath on the tongue.

O - The ABV is well hidden in this beer, very fruit forward.

4.11/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A-yellow colour with a strong thick haze, and a thin layer of white head
S-Aroma is ripe peach, passion fruit, and a hint of musky raisin
M-Medium body, with a peppery effervescence.
T-sweet and tart flavor, like biting into a under ripe peach.
O-perhaps it was because the can was a little over a month old, but this beer was a little sour for my liking. Overall a good beer, but I would have like a little more fruit and a little less sour
