Tree Shaker Imperial Peach IPATree Shaker Imperial Peach IPA
Notes: Tree Shaker Imperial Peach IPA has roots right here in Colorado. We balanced familiar citrusy hop notes with the subtle sweetness of local peaches. You might say we gave both the tree and the style a playful little shake.

Finally got my hands on this seasonal release, available in the springtime. It's interesting, because some sips taste hoppier while others bring out the sweeter peach notes. On balance, it's a pretty good beer, as you get some of each taste without either of them dominating. The smell is a bit stronger than the actual taste, and I would not have guessed it was an 8% beer, as it seems a lot lighter than that. This is a nice addition to the variety of IPAs that everyone, including Odell, seems to be making these days, and kudos to them for using local ingredients as well.

Best By: 06/08/18

Poured into a tulip a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden orangy color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which also leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a nice little citrus complex (orange, tangerine, peach), piney. The taste is hoppy, malty, with a nice little citrus complex (orange, tangerine, peach), piney. Medium body, ABV is hidden pretty nicely, with a dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.

A 12oz can picked up in Vegas with a good by date of 5.23.18

L - Blond with clarity, 1 finger of head.

S - citrus oranges, and peaches of course

T - Like the aroma, but the peaches are stronger. But not overly sweet. Just right. More of a subtle peach. Hops are more fruit forward than bitter. Tasty brew

F - Medium body and well carbonated

O - Another tasty DIPA from Odell, with some subtle peaches thrown in the hopper. Well done.

LOOKS: A fairly clear golden/amber, lots of carbonation rising, with a creamy finger of white head that lasts, and leaves a thick lacing down the glass.
AROMA: Floral, stone fruit, grapefruit, and caramel malt. Peach isn't huge, here.
TASTE: See aroma notes. Peach is more prominent in the taste.
FEEL: Average carbonation, dry, medium full body.
OVERALL: Balanced between hops and malts with a nice viscous body.

12oz best by 5-15-18
Golden color slight haze, with a 1/2" white head. Sticks around as a cap.
Stone fruit. Peach and apricot. Soft malt aroma is there. Lemon oil.
Tart fruit, almost a little sour twang. Not quite ripe peach flavor. Stone fruit flavors, peach but not just peach.
Soft mouthfeel, low to medium carbonation...tart.
Enjoyed this beer, it;s different.

Pours in between amber and gold with a nice, albeit not spectacular rocky head. However, the lacing is excellent. Crystal clear with tiny bubbles.

The nose has plenty of hops, but not overwhelming. Despite the "peach" name, the tropical fruits, i.e. mango and pineapple, seem to obscure the namesake.

The flavor presents quite a bit more peach flavor, although the flavors are a bit muddled compared with the nose.

The mouthfeel is the most disappointing aspect. The carbonation is pretty limited, and there isn't much "crispness" to balance what is a remarkably sweet base for a DIPA.

Overall, this is a touch disappointing for me because I wanted to love it (I love peach). Still, it's a solid effort.

This pours a great umber color color that is partly cloudy with a chance of AWESOME! The head is shallow and short lived with little lacing down the glass.

The nose is exceptional with the definite presence of peaches minus the excessive sweetness one might expect from something like a lambic. Instead it is a dry fruitiness that mixes well with the pine, earthiness and peppery notes of the hops. Neither is dominant, they are in balance and it's perfect.

The flavors are a match for the nose withe the peaches being there in spades, but not overwhelming and too sweet. The sweet is brewed out to leave a pleasant fruity, malty bed that is dry and in balance with the hops. The hops are nice and bitter but tamed with the fruitiness. This is an amazing beer.

The mouthfeel is rich and and not too heavy, just right.

Overall this is one awesome and amazingly good beer. one that stands on it's own and it not like any other. Odell has launched something fantastic here.

I bought this beer at a kiosk in the denver airport during a layover. The scent had hints of peach citrus. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. Good sweet malt mixed wiyh slight bitter peach citrus. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a solid beer.

This brew, from a 12 ounce aluminum can, is a clear honey color with a very thin head. The aroma is a mix of hops a sweet malt, with lots of fruit. I didn't get peach at first...it was, instead, a sweetish general fruit smell. However, after a sip, the peach did come out in the aroma. The taste is intensely bitter, and has a lot of alcohol warmth. The body is full and the flavors work well together. More fruit and lots of bitter hops in the finish.

Pours a nice sunny golden yellow with a light orange hue and a half finger of straight white foam.

Pungent tropical fruit character with notes of mango, melon, and the peach addition is most definitely apparent.

Hmm, tropical fruit and peach comes through in flavor, but wow this tastes too artificial to enjoy. The peach flavor is reminiscent of those sour peach chews without the sour.

Light-bodied, low-medium carbonation, cloyingly sweet.

Overall, this beer looks nice and smells great, but everything about it screams artificial or low grade peach extract.

Golden peach blonde with a nice head.

Aromas of stone fruits; peach, apricot. Also, mango, papaya, and fresh citra hop.

Flavor is fruity , peachy, hints of hop oil and resin, and some faint pine. Some armpit.

Feel is resiny, sort of dry.

Not a great ipa. I'd end up giving it away if I bought a 6 pack.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a can with a best by date of 5/17/17; into a tulip.
Appearance- goldish Orange with a few streams of carbonation mixed with some sediment that is detectable upon examination; head is a white, medium thick that diminishes slowly to a thin layer. Lacing is strong.
Smell - sweet peach and citrus fruit engulf the nose!
Taste - sweet, but not overly so as some nice bitter hop oils combine with a tinge of alcohol to mellow it out; rather enjoyable!
Feel - light body, though enough booze is present to give it a healthy lean towards medium; sweet, bitter and juicy!
Overall - a nice change of pace IPA as the sweetness a refreshing nature makes this a nice beer to kick back with on a warm day and yet the 8% ABV gives it enough muscle to keep you at bay. The $13.99 per sixer price tag is a definite turn off though.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours faintly hazy golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a firm layer and leaves some very nice lacing.

S: Fruity, peachy, floral, a little bready malt, and plenty of caramel sweetness.

T: Fruity, soft peach, maybe a little mango, floral, a little spice, bready malt, and some caramel sweetness.

M: A bit on the fuller side of medium body, mild carbonation, creamy smooth, a little alcohol warmth.

O: Fruit + IPA doesn't always = a winner, but this is pretty solid.

Hazy yellow peach (go figure) body with a frothy white cap. Aromas of peach leap out from the onset. Peach and stone fruit character up front with a dank, resinous finish. Some earthy overtones. Decent.

On tap at Public at the Brickyard in Wichita. Poured into a shaker pint.

A very nice beer with one serious flaw as the aroma was almost non-existent for me. Otherwise a hoppy but not bitter beer. Goes down way too easy. Be careful out there. 4

A - Pours a pale golden with an off white head lots of great lacing. 4.25

S - This is what is missing. I wasn't even aware that this was a "peach" IPA as the bar description failed to note this. Definitely no peach for me. 3.25

T - Malty before hoppy. 4

MF - Smooth and creamy medium body with a semi dry finish. 4.5

This hazy, burnt-orange brew is covered with a full finger of haphazard off-white froth.

Aroma is of equal parts peach, hops and grain.

Tastes malty and fruity with a dollop of caramel before a nice citrus hop bite comes into play.

Lighter side of medium and imminently quaffable with maybe just a little expense charged from the hop account.

There's no shame to this beer's balance, and I can see unapologetically consuming large quantities.

Pours a copper tinged gold color. Clear, crisp, effervescent initially although it eventually settles down. Thin white head dissipates leaving no lacing or residual head.

Smell has notes of mango, peach, and apricot giving way to a hoppy aroma.

Taste follows the nose with notes of mango, peach and apricot. Lots of bitterness on the finish with an unripe peach like flavor. This is called a peach DIPA and there is certainly peach notes here, but calling it a peach DIPA seems a bit far. The peach is more a flavor that you notice from the hops used, not a strong flavor. That being said it is a tasty beer.

Feel is mild carbonation, bit sweet on the tongue. Definitely what you'd expect from a DIPA.

Overall a solid DIPA in its own right. That being said, for a "peach DIPA" I'd love more peach flavor here.

Selected in a "build your own six pack". Yummy. A dark melon color; I taste the peaches upfront, then a hops aftertaste with citrus rind and a malty sweetness. 48 IBU, I thought it was lower. Nice carbonation, very refreshing. I've stocked up on this for the summer.

This was a very solid IPA, but sadly there is almost no peach at all. I got excited about this one, but found very little flavor in this other than a decent hop profile.

Great semi opaque golden beer with a lasting little bubbly head. Large alcohol percentage but almost no character of alcohol. Light bodied, peach or apricot tinged ale, the iBU is only 48 and it shows. There are much more bitter beers with a lot less alcohol. I like it. Leaves a little something to be desired in the peach department but for being so drinkable and so light they did a great job. Much balance. Cheers.

12oz bottle, dated 7/14/16
A - slightly hazed peach colored ale with a frothy off-white head that dissipates slowly into a foam
S - juicy peach, caramel malt, mango and tropical aromas
T - peach is present but not overbearing with notes of caramel malt, mango, orangey citrus, pineapple, and white pepper
M - fuller body, nice carbonation, finishes very well balanced and quite dry, which entices frequent sips of this easy drinking DIPA
O - I really thought this was well put together with just the right amount of peach added, but I don't think I'd buy it again. Really glad to try it though!

12 oz. bottle. Pours a golden color with small white head aroma of peach and citrus. Huge peach flavor overpowers the hops but is pretty good overall.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into stemless wine glass. Dark, hazy orange in color, with fluffy white head that leaves lots of gorgeous lacing. Piney hops on the nose at first, with just a hint of peach. The peach is understated on the palate. Well balanced, easy drinking, very clean finish. An outstanding beer.

The original 750's from 2013ish that were higher in ABV and had so much peach were insanely good, incredible feel. They started putting it in 4 packs, lowered the abv and peach amount. So disappointing. It is a totally different beer than the original. I feel like it dupes people into buying it who enjoyed the original. I had 8-10 original 750's. After one 4 pack never again. Most geeks feel the same but Odell doesn't care because this is a beer now marketed to people just getting into craft. Too bad because it was actually good, adjunct fruit in IPAs usually ends up tacky, watermelon dorado, pineapple sculpin, etc.
