Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This unique India Pale Ale features our favorite hops—Simcoe, Amarillo and Nugget. A generous Amarillo and Simcoe dry hop provide for an assertive, hop-forward nose and front palate. We don’t use traditional bittering hops in our IPA, providing nothing but stimulating citrus and floral characteristics.

Inspired by a recipe from our good friend and fellow homebrewer Tim from the North Shore Homebrewers Club.

2.45/5  rDev -34%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

APPEARANCE: Its a good looking beer with a very warm, hazy, medium amber hue. There's a decent head even though it's pretty heavily carbonated and has a high ABV.

SMELL: Very light, almost odorless. Though there is a slight, clean whiff of earthy hops.

TASTE: It's a very average IPA without a lot of character. You'll pick up some piney notes on the finish, but it's not as hoppy as you'd expect from an IPA. I've read several reviews that mentioned caramel as a dominant taste. I didn't really get that. For me, I found it really lacking for any distinctive taste at all.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied with high(ish) carbonation.

DRINKABILITY: It's easy to drink because it doesn't really taste like anything. There's very little bite, considering the high ABV for an IPA.

SERVING TYPE: Cask

VERDICT: I really wanted to like this beer. I enjoy Peak's nut brown ale quite a bit. And while I'm not really all that earthy-crunchy, I can get behind organic beers ... if they're good. Until they rework the recipe, I don't really need to drink this again.
