This pours a malty copper color with white, bright foam.
There’s a fresh hoppy aroma on it, with some pine and citrus peel.
The flavor is similar, with a piney hop and a sticky piney finish on the palate. I haven’t been a fan of most of the North Peak beers I’ve tried but this one warrants another visit.

Pours a handsome hazy orange copper color with a a lasting off white head and generous amounts of foamy lacing. The aroma is hoppy with notes of grass, pine, and some floral hops. I can tell by the nose that this bottle is slightly past its prime. There is also a decent malt backbone in the aroma. This definitely has promise of being balanced. The mouth is nice, just the right balance of sippably smooth and mouth coating resiny goodness. The flavor starts out very nicely with a punch of hops upfront followed by a nice malt note to balance the taste. Unfortunately, the aftertaste is an unpleasant bitterness of stale hops. I'm not knocking this one super hard for this as I know that I am not drinking the freshest bottle. This is good and definitely something that I will seek out this fall when it is fresh and re review.

Interesting bottle, thanks to everlast223 (reddit).
Bottled on 10/1/13
Pours a decent fizzy head that his 1/2 finger and fades pretty quickly, hazy reddish orange color.
Nose fruity hops, little pineapple and fruity hops, hint of musty dank resin, hint citrus and little pear, chewy like. Some pine and forest floor, earthy mild mushroom, very light fresh wet hop oil.
Taste starts with little musty resin, dank with hop oil, little fresh hop resin but little stale pine, mild citrus, fruity. Fairly sweet candy malt base, little, bit of balance, mild honey malt. Finish dries and gets quite bitter spicy chewy hops with little pine and hop oil.
Mouth is med bod, lighter carb, little oily.
Overall ok, but doesn't seem as good as it should be, I think the three months have taken away from the fresh wet hops.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a slightly hazy amber hue with a quarter inch sudsy head that fades to leave big bubbles.
S - Aromas of malty sweetness, bright pine, not much alcohol at all. Bit malt heavy.
T - Taste is rather malt heavy, older hops, light pine. Definitely tastes like am old past it's prime double ipa.
M - Mouthfeel is nice and easy drinking.
O - Overall this beer was a bit disappointing. Stale old hops really let this one down.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/1/2013. Pours moderately hazy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest, grapefruit, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, grapefruit, pine resin, orange rind, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Large amount of earthy pine resin bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest/rind, pineapple, pine resin, floral, grass, bread, and light caramel on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of citrus/pine hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance and minimal cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and very sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice wet hop IPA. All around good complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
