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.

Super crisp drinkable IPA. $10 for a six pack of bottles of an Organic IPA is a steal. This is a daily drinker for me. Love it with homemade Mexican or Thai food.

Nothing fancy about this beer, but it's inarguably a high quality IPA. In a world flooded with IPAs that are too bitter or obviously made in haste to stay en vogue as a craft brewing outfit Peak Organic has put out an honest effort to make an IPA that is easy to drink with organic ingredients.

Highly recomend this IPA.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Best by May 2013.

A: Pours an opaque golden orange with a 1 finger dense white head. A decent amount of visible carbonation. Leaves some lacing on the glass.

S: Certainly hops going on here. A piney, mildly fruity and sort of soapy hop characteristic. Fruit comes through as some grapefruit and orange. A sweet malt in the background.

T: Decently hoppy, perhaps a little lackluster for such a strong IPA. Don't get me wrong its bitter but there isnt as much hops as others in this category. Instead however it is a nice earthly floral hop that is very easy drinking.

M: Fairly light bodied, mild carbonation. Body is a tad watery.

Overall love the organic take on a great American style. Has a pure hop taste just could use more backing. A little higher overall as I feel the taste is more than 3.5 but not quite a 4.

Best Before F13

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a fingers worth of head

S: A good dose of minty, citrusy, piney hops with a little earthiness and bready malts

T: Nicely balanced, with the citrus and piney hops combining with the earthiness and breadiness of the malts. Finishes bitter

M: Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation. Prickly

O: A nice IPA that has a great balance between hops and malts with a good amount of bitterness. Nothing really too stand-outish though

A - bright orange in color. Nice cascading on the glass

S - not much to speak of. Some floral and aromatics.

T - dry with a crisp spicy finish. Tasted very light compared to other craft ipa's

M - high carbonation. A bit too much in my opinion for the style

O - just another average craft ipa. Nothing special hear but it is refreshing.
