Is the peach going to be noticeable behind all those Hops?

Sounds like a good beer to try!

I just bottled this today and my initial impressions was that the peach flavor was a little strong. I tweaked the recipe a little and added 1lb of canned peaches in the last 20min of the boil, along with some vanilla extract (was eating peach cobbler the night before). Tasted better than some other beers on bottling day, but we will see in a few weeks!

Well, it has been aging close to 4 months and does not taste good at all. Very sweet with a horrible aftertaste. I am thinking that this beer needs a little more hopping and it may be ok, but I am going back to basic recipes for awhile!
