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.

I went to Redwood City looking for an IPA at a small brewery, ... I found it and was not impressed.
So, my wife and I went into town to get a bite to eat. What a surprise - "Aly's on Main" had a beer on tap from Mass. I asked the bartender about the beer and he stated that this restaurant was one of 3 on the west coast that carried it. Here it is: clean, crisp, and refreshing. It was unfiltered, so their was a bit of turbidity and they used whole hops. The mouth feel was fantastic and the bite at the end was exactly what I was hoping for. The food was better than expected and the beer was fantastic. I will drive the 80 mile round trip for this again.

A: Pours a light, clear, golden yellow in color when held up to the light, however comes off a bit more coppery otherwise. A generous amount of creamy white foam sits atop that leaves plenty of lacing as you drink. Carbonation levels are moderate and head retention is excellent. Doesn't get much better from an appearance perspective, although it does look to be a bit on the thinner side.

S: Floral and grassy with a sweet, cloying butter, toffee and vanilla undertone. Lots of cream corn, hints of lime. Barely hop-centric, as there is a strong light malt profile presence there to balance it out. Not a bad thing, off to a great start here.

T: Follows the nose quite well. Floral and grassy up front with a mellowing, light, toasty malt middle which meshes with a bitter grapefruit rind and lime finish that lingers long into the aftertaste. At 7.20% ABV, the alcohol is barely distinguishable until the final swallow.

M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation, this one feels creamy on the tongue and has an ample amount of chewiness. Some hop oiliness is present on the tongue, but it is far from a palate wrecker. Finishes crisp and clean but not dry. This is a perfect example of what an IPA should strive for if it aims to be both complex and drinkable.

O: Honestly, I was quite blown away by this one. I knew it would be good, based on ratings, but to me this is much better than the B average it has been given thus far. Yes, it will not please those seeking the trendy West Coast IPA hop bombs, and it won't blow you away with flavor or complexity, but seriously, judge this for what it is: a classic, balanced American IPA that is very tasty and quite sessionable, even at a higher ABV. Did I mention that it's from an organic, sustainable brewery? It doesn't get much better, folks. Stop being snobs and just savor the flavor. Can't wait to come back for more. Peak Organic is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries. Cheers!

Probably my favor rite session IPA on the market today. Pours a smooth amber color from the tap with a nice head. Each sip greets you with plesant aromas of citrus with a nice hint of alcohol. Smooth to drink and a satisfying aftertaste. Peak does not make a bad beer and their IPA is simply one of the best on the market.
