Don't get the high ratings on this one - I liked the regular version much better - this crossed the line of being too sweet.

Poured into a tall tulip, the appearance was a pure dark hazy murky orange wood color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a mild pace. Light lace wrapped around the glass pretty nicely.
The aroma had a ton of sweet peach flesh and skin playing with a nice tart level and then having a little bit of juicy grapefruit lining the backbone. Light grassiness even lighter in the background.
The flavor was a pure juicy peach fleshy sweetness with a delicate grapefruit rind bitterness with some creaminess flowing all into each other and then sliding together in the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fine sessionability about it. Carbonation was under, but I expected that as I expected this to be a "New England styled IPA." ABV didn't feel as projected to me. It actually felt way under. Am I arguing? I shouldn't as I have to admit perhaps this would be a stellar juice bomb to have in the Summer.
Overall, looks like this style continues to catch on as brewers in Indiana seem to be "getting it." Of course, I would have this again.

Pours a very hazy, bright golden orange color with a finger of off-white head.

Aroma is full of vibrant, fresh, juicy peach. They didn't hold back on the peach addition (over 15 lbs per barrel). Behind that is juicy mango, tangerine, and clementine; as well as floral and herbaceous dankness. Get some slight vanilla (especially as it warms) and lactose sweetness. Peach juice bomb overall though.

Taste follows the aroma. Peach juice throughout. Right behind that is ripened tangerine and clementine. Reminds me of orange gummy bears. Also some juicy pineapple and mango. Lactose sweetness is there to provide sweetness and milkiness, as well as undertones of vanilla. A slight acidity/spice in the finish, possibly from the yeast.

Full body. Creamy and soft mouth feel. Super smooth...would never know it is 9.4% abv.

This is extremely well done. These guys are definitely dialing in these "milkshake" beers. A creamy peach juice bomb.

Appearance - The beer was hazy straw yellow with a bubbly white head.

Smell - The nose brought fresh fuzzy peaches to mind with some bitterness.

Taste - The fuzzy praches are sweeter than the regular with an increased sense of milkiness. Orange hops are present. There is not the same bitterness as regular, but there is a sense of spice. The overall profile endures.

Mouthfeel - The thickness is spot on for the style, with less floaties than the original.

Overall - Another hit from Windmill, though only slightly better than Peaches & Memes.

On tap at the brewery on 08/26/17 served in their stemmed glass.

Look- A beautiful radiant cloudy orange juice color with a creamy finger of white foam. It slowly recedes leaving heavy lacing behind.

Smell- Fresh peaches, orange slices, a little spicy floral and rubber.

Taste- Pineapple/orange juice and passion fruit. The peaches really shine in the finish.

Feel- Pillowy soft and easy drinking with a slight acidity in the finish.

Overall- I'm beating a dead horse talking about how this place is nailing it lately. It tastes like fruit juice and is dangerously drinkable at 9.4%. Another winner in the Memes series!
