Very Good
Sliced Nectarine IPASliced Nectarine IPA
Notes: The inspiration for this beer came in the form of a summer farmers market and the abundance of fresh fruits and produce. The resulting IPA showcases a bright tropical aroma of stone fruits that balances the grapefruit acidity of the Chinook hops. The beer’s crisp profile refreshes and delights taste-buds and craves pairings such as slow-roasted pork shoulder or a slice of warm peach pie.

2015 vintage; drank 8/24/15 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dull orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a HUGE fluffy off-white head (careful pouring!); a curtain of frothy lace.

Nectarine & cream notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Nectarine & wheat flavors up front; stabs of citrus bite on the finish. Lemon emerged as this warmed.

Flavorful, fruity & not too sweet; nicely balanced.

Had this on tap in the bar at the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago, Poured into a 12 oz. snifter type glass

Color was a yellow/gold with a 1 finger head that lasted throughout. Good lacing.

Smell was fruity, with a hint tangerine. Taste was also fruity, with a slight bitterness.

Very smooth and easy drinking. Would definitely order this again.

Look: It pours amber with a white head and small beads. Head retention is excellent.

Smell: It has aromas of peach and white grapes. There is a low level of herbal notes to it with very low grainy smells.

Taste: It has strong peach, white grape, and herbal flavors. There are also some citrus flavors that are moderate with very low grainy elements.

Feel: It has a moderate body and is a bit high on the carbonation.

Overall, this peachy elements outshine the nectarine especially in the aroma. With that said, there are good combinations of hops.

12 oz bottle of Sliced Nectarine IPA from The Wall of Beer (SC). No date stamp found.
Served in a pint glass which filled to the top with a generous, thick, off-white head over a clear copper body.
Aroma: nectarines and hops with hints of ripe peaches, yeast and baked bread.
Flavor: less striking peach/nectarine component but nicely fruity. Moderate bitterness for style with an appropriate hop hit.
Feel: very good carbonation level and feel in a medium+ body.

A solid and very drinkable IPA. Not bitter and a great starter IPA for those wading into the IPA waters.

i like this beer a lot, and i love the idea, but to me its just not all that hoppy, and chinook may have been a weird choice for this. its clear and golden in the glass, sunny and shiny and appealingly lightly carbonated, oddly enough for me (i almost always prefer high bubbles, but it works here). it really does smell and taste like nectarines, natural and just short of perfectly ripe, like post the rock hard stage but pre the juicy bruised dripping ripeness, probably exactly when they actually sliced and added them. its not that sweet for how natural it is, and there is some hop bitterness, but i dont get all that much flavor from them, more of a generic chinook profile to me than one robust and fresh and full of life. i do like the grain complexion coming through, sort of a golden ale type base, a lot of these fruited ipa types just taste like the fruit, or like dry hopping, but this is delicate in those respects and tastes like beer, and i really appreciate that. enjoyable nectarine all the way though, so authentic that its obviously not peach, also really cool. these guys seem to have an awesome grasp on the culinary elements in their beers, and while i think this would have been more compelling with something like nelson instead of chinook, its a cool beer and definitely its own entity! good stuff.

Saturated sunset orange tone, initial foam that fades quickly with no lace.
Citrusy orange/grapefruit aroma, not getting any nectarine or peach.
Taste is mildly bitter and citrus peel notes come through, lingering into the bitter aftertaste. Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation, easy drinking. A pretty textbook IPA.
