3.85/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a can released on 05/31/17

Appearance - Pours hazy and orange in color with a white, half finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of suds and a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Not much for lacing; just a few small spots.

Smell - Peach, nuttiness and citrus notes make up the aroma.

Taste - Surprising amount of nutty stonefruit pit bitterness upfront and throughout. Lesser peach juice hits mid-taste, then grapefruit pith in the finish. Bitter aftertaste, with the nutty stonefruit pit and grapefruit pith lingering long and strong.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth drinker before a bone dry finish.

Overall - Not the beer I was expecting (was expecting more of a sweet, hazy juice bomb) but it's pretty good beer, regardless. There was a lot of hype surrounding its release though, and I don't really understand why.
