Odell's got Georgia on my Mind

Odell introduces another in its line of IPAs, Tree Shaker Imperial Peach IPA. I believe Odell makes some of the most overlooked IPAs on the market, with its GABF Gold Medal-winning IPA and Myrcenary DIPA, which I think would fly off the shelves if scaled down to a limited release beer. This latest release continues Odell's tradition of using Colorado ingredients, with 3,000 pounds of Colorado peaches going into the brew. Odell IPAs already have the peach/apricot/mango characteristics, so I'm excited to see what the addition of actual peaches does to this beer. The 9.7% ABV beer sells in 25.4 oz. bottles for anywhere from $11.99 (Total Wine) up to $14.99 (keg of the beer being tapped at the Juan Tabo O'Niell's today, by the way). The bottles are expensive, yes. But that's what you pay for when you have a fancy corked and caged bottle. Personally, I'd be happy if the beer was topped with a paper towel and rubber band (which also passes for birth control in these parts). Enjoy!
