Peach ShakePeach Shake
Notes: After a quick detour into uncharted territory with our Peanut Butter Shake a few weeks ago we now return to your regularly scheduled fruit program. The Peach Shake IPA employs a frustratingly large amount of peach puree, lactose, and vanilla beans for a creamy and peachy treat.

Received in a trade and shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden orange hue with a thin white head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Big aromas of lactose and flashes of vanilla. Candied peaches and light pit, flashes of earthy hops as well.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of sweeter vanilla. Tons of lactose going that really gets in the way. Little spicy vanilla too. The peach is really really faint. Light spicy hop as well.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, good body, alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this beer had tons of promise, however, the taste we completely overtaken by the lactose. Really disappointed by this which is a shocker as I don't think I've ever not loved a Westbrook beer.

Thanks to rudzud, canned 7/31/19
Light fizzy head, fades quickly, thick legs and coats the glass, cloudy murky orange peach color

Nose loads of peach, juicy peach and puree, mild raw vanilla and some obvious lactose but not a ton, little apricot like, light citrus

Taste light juicy peach, but overpowered by loads of lactose and earthy spicy vanilla, spicy and a little nutty earthy like, doughy pithy little papery oxidation, some juicy peach, little tropical, so much lactose, dry finish

Mouth is richer, creamy juicy like, very creamy milky, medium creamy carb

Overall meh, peach on the nose was great, but taste was all spicy vanilla and lactose, sad, and why I really don't like this style

L: Had this beer on-tap at Westbrook's tasting room, poured into a taster. Had a yellowish color and a very cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Fantastic lacing.

S: A light and sweet aroma of peaches (of course), malt, hops, vanilla, lactose, and citrus fruit.

T: Tasted of a small amount of malt (mostly in the finish), a tinge of citrus fruit (lemon, orange), a lot of the advertised peaches (the dominant ingredient), a bit of vanilla, a moderate amount of hops (less than expected), and a light lactose presence (not a huge factor). A very fruity and likable flavor.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A likable and easy to drink IPA (if you like peaches). Drinkable.
