Canned 3 weeks ago.

L -- Intensely hazy muted orange body with three fingers of off-white head produced with moderate pour. Good retention and minimal lacing. So hazy you can see the fine film of haze particulate in suspension as you swirl it
S -- My first thought was "there's no way they got hops to smell like that", and it turns out I was right! This is conditioned on peaches and the peach aroma is what smacks front and center. Complementary notes of guava, jelly bean, pineapple candy, orange creme, and a very mild dankness
T -- The peaches dominate here as well. So much so that it is somewhat difficult to discern the base beer. Bit of citrus rind, hint of tropical. Mostly peach.
F -- Almost zero bitterness, which is doubly surprising given the high ABV. Medium- mouthfeel, medium+ carb. Moderately fluffy
O -- Great if you like peaches and very low bitterness IPAs. Otherwise you will probably have qualms with this one
