Video: We tried Indeed's new summer beer – a peachy, hoppy IPA

One of us hates peaches, the other dislikes IPAs.

Indeed's new summer beer is filled with peaches and hops, and since GoMN's Melissa hates peaches and Josette dislikes IPAs – we just had to sample it.

The beer is called Peach Bum IPA and it came out this week on draft and in six packs of 12-ounce cans. Indeed describes it as a "refreshingly fruity peach IPA" that's made for "the hazy days of summer."

The beer smells very strongly of peaches (which is good or bad, depending on your feelings about the hairy fruit), but the peach flavors weren't as strong – it was a little fruity, but then the bitterness of hops took over. This was great for one of us, but the IPA-hater could have done without the bitterness.

Watch the video above for our full review.

The beer, which is made with Mosaic, Citra, Azacca and Centennial hops, has an ABV of 6.2 percent and 70 IBUs.

Inspiration for the beer?

Indeed got the idea for Peach Bum IPA last year, thanks to the brewery's Derailed Series of limited-edition beers.

Head brewer Josh Bischoff brewed a summery IPA for the series using a different yeast than he normally uses for Indeed's hoppy beers to give the beer super fruity flavors. He also picked hops that are known to make a beer taste more fruity.

The Derailed: IPA "became a fast favorite in the taproom," Indeed says. So they decided to take it a step further and add peaches, creating the Peach Bum IPA.

There's a party at Hi-Lo Diner on Saturday to celebrate the release of Peach Bum IPA. People are encouraged to wear beach attire, and there will be games and giveaways.
