COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle @ Richard’s tasting. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Sweet caramel and peach on the nose. Light citrus, mostly orange, but some grapefruit as well. Sweet flavor of orange, peach, and caramel. Grapefruit, a touch of grass, and minimal bitterness.

750 c&c from ReedM. Pours hazy gold with a transient white head. Aroma of rather tart peach and light caramel. Med body or better. Flavor is caramel, peach pit and tart peach. Finishes quite dry. Hop is mysterious. Good stuff.

750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a cloudy peach with a lasting off white head. Aromas of peach, orange, bread, apricot and light yeast. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, grapefruit, light orange zest and light peach with a crisp dry moderatly bitter lingering fruity finish.

daknole (10112) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Orange/gold pour with a white head. Malty peachy goodness meets some juicy citrus hops and a hint of a light bready note. Would like a bit more peach.

adnielsen (10028) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at RJs Fort Collins. Christ, this sold out quickly for the number of bottles that were released. Pours a milky yellow orange appearance with a foamy, creamy colored head. Tropical fruity, big peachy, mango, somewhat spicy, herbal hoppy aroma. Chewy peach pulp, quite city, apricot/mango, vanilla, somewhat bitter, herbal hoppy flavor. Actually quite a bit of bitterness on the finish. Carbonation is a bit heavy. Pretty tasty but doesn’t blow my mind.

355ml bottle. 8% abv. Godlen amber with a plethora of floaties. The aroma is sulfury and salty. Off. The flavor is nice though, an ipa that tastes like peach rings and a malty peach-forward dipa.

750mL bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a cloudy opaque orange with a medium white head. Aroma brings out loads of peaches, loads of resinous hops, and a solid caramel malt backbone. Flavour brings out moderate peach notes, loads of zesty hops, some Belgian yeast and a nice caramel malt backing. Fairly high carbonated, making this seem like a Belgian Imperial IPA. Finishes zesty, citrusy and peachy. The higher-than-normal carbonation works very well here. Excellent stuff.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, pretty hazy orange pour with fluffy white head, pretty nice looking. Aroma is unfortunately rather dull, however some notes of orange peel, mango, peach, pineapple, some hints of grass, spice, touch of pear, some acidic notes I can only imagine are from the peach, touch of caramel and biscuit in there. Taste is up front a mix of bitter grapefruit, orange, some nondescript pine and grassy notes, touch of biscuit, goes into a middle with sweet peach jam, some nice acidic notes, slight earthy tones but the peach really shines here, before it goes into a slightly bitter, slightly sweet finish. Overall, not bad, but not quite as I expected.

DrSilverworm (8155) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2013
750ml bottle, shared by Jay. Hazy... peach color. Good thin white head, some decent lace. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Very fruity puree peach flavor. More peach fruit beer than IPA. Some light to moderate citrusy hop noticeable under all that peach, light double-IPA type alcohol warmth in the finish. More sweet taste, light bitter. Interesting, tasty fruit beer

On tap at FWIBF. Pours with a hazy golden hued body and a white head. Aromas are floral, grassy, herbal, light acetone and a bit of peach. Flavors are of sweet peach, grassy, herbal, low bitterness. Medium carbonation, fuller bodied and a bit warming.
