Tree Shaker Imperial Peach IPAApril 25, 2013
Fort Collins, CO
Style: Imperial IPA
Staff Review: Slight peach aroma on the nose. Very effervescent with a full mouthfeel through the finish, as the peach flavor smothers the hops. Not a hop bomb. Not a peach bomb. Just a very enjoyable imperial. Is it imperial peach or imperial IPA? Perhaps it’s time for yet another category—the enhanced imperial IPA.
The best part of tasting this beer was the 20-minute conversation that followed. The beer sparked curiosity and discussion around everything from style to bittering to alcohol to peaches to nose. Exactly what an enjoyable beer should do.
