ABV: 7.1% | IBUS: 55 | SRM: N/A What the brewer says

“Brewed with Amar­illo, Ci­tra, and Aza­cca hops. Then we added peaches and lac­tose and vanilla beans to pro­duce a beer rem­i­nis­cent of a peach milk­shake.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Peach notes with sweet malt and vanilla, com­ing through very sweet and per­fumy—like fresh baked bread. A touch of citrus hops with es­ters play­ing a sup­port­ive role to the fruit. Smells like peaches-and-cream hard candies.” Fla­vor: “Peaches and cream, with a heavy dose of sweet­ness. The malt is soft, bread-like, and doughy—very big for the style, and the touch of vanilla puts it over the top. The hops bit­ter­ness is low for the style, but def­i­nitely there. The fin­ish is drier than ex­pected, with lit­tle lin­ger­ing sweet­ness.” Over­all: “The peach and vanilla are so dom­i­nant, and the fla­vor is de­li­cious, but the over­all beer is rather sim­ple for the ev­i­dent strength. It’s a dessert beer, with an in­ter­est­ing com­bi­na­tion of fresh fruit and vanilla fla­vors, and one you’d sa­vor. By no means is this a tra­di­tional IPA base, but it’s not a tra­di­tional fruit beer, ei­ther. That said, it’s well ex­e­cuted in cre­at­ing fla­vors that in­stantly evoke peaches and cream.”
