Who's been drinking this

This tasted so strongly, pungently of dried peaches. Which is not a flavor I've ever had in a straight IPA? They say this is a new recipe. They should probably go back.
I asked for a Cold Snap and got this, so basically there is a baseline of disappointment here. Despite that, this was an inoffensive and perfectly drinkable, loose-tasting IPA. A sweetish, breakfast cereal-like malt creeps up at the end; at this point I think this is Sam Adams's signature.
