look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Corked and caged 750 ml bottle served chilled into a pint glass.

Tree Shaker is a very hazy pale golden yellow color with thick white head. It has good retention and sticks to the glass as it settles.

Aroma is both hoppy and peachy in equal measure. A nice combination of citrusy hops and fresh juicy peach.

Flavor is unfortunately much less successful. It tastes like a bitter peach or even a grapefruit. The hops overwhelm the more subtle flavors of the peach. This would probably work much better as a standard IPA along the lines of Magic Hat's #9 if they just toned down the hops.

Mouthfeel is medium-light in body and a little overly carbonated.

Overall not a bad beer but a disappointment given the high price. At least it has a nice label.

damn you odell! you had a real opportunity here to blow my mind, to be the first to make a peach beer actually taste like real peaches, and to combine it with the lovely hop complexity of an imperial ipa, but you failed. you failed! I anticipated this as much as anything since beer geek brunch, and I wanted it to be so many things. instead, its an overly alcoholic tropical fruit flavored ipa that isn't even as good as the myrcenary (which is excellent by the way). it pours a radiant orange color, quite hazy and dense, with an inch of white soapy suds on top, lots of promise from the appearance. the nose is very alcoholic, with some tropic fruit before the hops kicks in, pineapples and mangoes come to mind, but we all agreed that we couldn't pick out any peach distinctly. there is quite a bit of hops to this, some bitterness towards the finish, but more oily fruity hops up front, not dissimilar to the mosaic hop profile in their woodcut 6 (also outstanding). at the end of the day though, this was just another sort of fruity ipa, it lacked that fresh peach kick I really wanted, and I think this beer leaves so much to be desired in that regard. under another name, I might like this a lot more. good feel though, medium body and super active carbonation, I just wish the alcohol wasn't so strong, it really does burn a little on the way down. props for not letting the beer get too sweet, but this was way below my expectations. maybe someday ill find a peach beer that tastes like peaches, but it isn't this.

Pours a firey golden with a huge, exploding creamy in consistency off white head. Aroma is sweet and peachy, somewhat fruity hops, toasted bread, and slightly astringent at times (which I am assuming is from the cork but not sure exactly). Flavor has that astringency showing itself much stronger and not something I was able to ever fully ignore, though it didn't completely ruin the beer for me. The rest of the flavor was some non-offensive alcohol, sweetness from the peaches, slight fruity hops, and toasted bread. A medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this beer was great on tap and it would have been great via the bottle if not for the dominating astringent flavor that showed itself. Will not be buying another bottle of this one again, that is for sure. Will stick with it on tap.
