Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this

Review from notes, 3/12/14

Appearance: Hazy orange with some gold and copper - pours with a medium white head - impressive retention that leaves some nice lacing

Smell: Peach, with more peach, and some peach-flavored candy - an abundance of citrus as well - orange, tangerine, and grapefruit - fleshy, juicy peach, with some sugary fruit - a lot of sweetness, actually - pale and caramel malts - some booze in the background

Taste: Hoppy and straight-up peachy - bright citrus, with orange, tangerine, and grapefruit - flesh, rind, and some pith - loads of fruity, fleshy peach, and some candied peach - fruity sweetness with some malty sweetness, finishes with some fairly obvious booze

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nice carbonation, smooth with some heat in the finish

Overall: Shaken, not... picked?

The peach flavor really dominates this, which I suppose was the point. But I think the peach would have benefited from some subtlety. Ultimately, it's a bit too sweet and boozy, but otherwise very good.

On-tap at Fresh Craft during opening day at the Rockies game served in a 12oz snifter. This beer looks fantastic and compliments the ever warming weather of the spring. Slightly murky but what I would expect when 3000 pounds of palisade peaches are added to the mash ton. Delicious notes of mango and peach snuggle the amazing grassiness of the hops on the nose. Taste is 100% peaches and sunny lemongrass hops, with literally no bite from the booze. I don't know why this beer isn't rated higher, but after last year's and this year's hitting all of the right notes for me I have to say this is one of the best IIPA's I have ever had. I love you Odell.

Imperial peach IPA? Yes, please.

Poured into a snifter. Looks like an IPA. Golden in color, decent head, no lace. Hoppy citrus aroma with faint peach. Nice smell, but not outstanding. Everything falls into place, however, with the taste. Dry up front, with a subtle hoppiness and muted fruit flavors. Finishes with a bitter peach flavor in the back of the throat. Really nice stuff here. It's flavorful without going overboard. It's a big beer at 10.1% ABV, but it's not a boozy beer. It's even-tempered and, dare I say, mellow? To accomplish that with a 10% beer is saying something. Mouthfeel is smooth and chewy.

I love this beer. It's not overly peachy, or overly hoppy, or overly boozy. It's a smooth-drinking IPA that's got balance and layers. Just complex enough to spark conversation, but not too controversial to draw too much attention. More fruit beers should take notice, because this one works well. Cheers.
