Served chilled from a 22 oz bomber and poured into a tulip glass. Pours an orange amber color with a two finger off white foam head. Smell is heavily of peach, with hints of mango and a graham cracker malt. Carbonation is moderate with a medium body. Taste is sweet and tropical, with an almost creamy consistency. This beer is perfectly balanced, and the peach flavors taste natural.
I was shocked to find out this beer was 8% alcohol, as the pale ale and Amarillo hops mask the booze quite well. The peach flavoring was wonderful, and the consistency compares very closely to Bear Republic's Apex Double IPA. A big thank you to Tyler for finding this beer upstate (figured I would save this post for your bday) Will definitely be looking for more Pipeworks beers in the near future (and I'd recommend you all look too!)
