    I am kind of curious about this and will buy some if I come across it but my first impression is that a peanut IPA sounds terrible. Stout definitely seems the way to go if brewing with peanuts

    I like the can art, very clean. Wonder how this tastes...

    IHOP, Dunkin Donuts, Planter's...this is just turning into a game of chasing the trend marketing. I feel like these guys all have the same consulting group or something.

    Agree, a nice Stout with this mix could be really good. But I am willing to try these, the can is just cool also, lol.

    I am waiting for the candy guys to jump into the mix, think of all the outstanding candy that would go with a stout, I would bet we see one of them toss out something one day.

    Oh, but I bet you didn't really. Sounds awful. If it was free, I might try a sip just to see, but I wouldn't want a whole can.

    I would certainly try this. But a porter would have been a better choice.

    I'm a big supporter of Noon Whistle, and right now they have an IPA with peanuts on. I believe the current one is all peanut powder so them using real peanuts in the boil for the Planters one will be interesting. I know Noon Whistle threw a couple ideas at Planters, ranging from a brown ale to stout.

    I'm glad they tried something besides a stout or porter, those have been done. A peanut Pils might work too.

    The one candy you want to stay away from is Skittles. Those things are nasty on their own, and I've tried a couple Skittles beers ( a few years ago, when that guy from the Seahawks had a Skittles fetish, a couple breweries up here tried it.) and they were awful.

    Which will be first, that or IPA-flavored Doritos (or Lays chips)? I'm not too confident the latter hasn't happened yet.

    I have great love for both peanuts and IPA, so I can't decide if this might be something really great or absolutely horrible. Both seem equally possible. Not likely to get a chance to try this, but I would def. not turn it down.
    Uggh, Skittles and Peeps are the worst tasting candies I ever have tried. How could someone think to make a beer with Skittles?

    Nope, nope...and nope.
    However, I hope that Noon Whistle got a TON of money for doing this miserable experiment.
    I mean, I like Chinese food and chocolate pudding separately, but together?

    I had skittle beer once. Ode to Homer J.

    I’m in for a can of Mr p-nut IPA just for the can.

    LOL I would not do any Skittle stuff, more like dark chocolate items, maybe mounds or something that would go with a stout. Maybe a Reeses. I guess candy with limits lol. A nice heath stout sounds sort of tasty, hum.

    I think it could work. For some reason oat-heavy IPAs taste nutty to me, like peanuts.

    Does this trigger peanut allergies? You could really fuck with someone at a tasting and throw this blindly into the mix.

    Yep. And to me they're all pretty damn stupid.

    Make good beer without gimmicks. Sell it at a fair price. Innovate, don't imitate. Don't use a tv show/band/obvious commercial tie in to try and sell me your beer; it insults my intelligence, and makes me think less of you as a brewery.

    Is it really that hard?

    I haven't had an IPA with peanuts and salt. I'm on the side of this being, if anything, a possibly tasty novelty.

    Certainly more interesting than an IPA clouded in mango puree, or purposefully opaque for the sake of nothing

    I don't know, man. If someone asked me if I'd rather have an IPA with peanuts in it or one with mango in it, I'd choose the mango one every day and twice on Sundays.

    But would you rather have an IPA while eating a mango, or an IPA while eating peanuts?
