look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Free beer from work, bottled 10/23/12

A&S: Pretty great looking beer: hazy dark orange, cream colored foamy head that starts over a finger and a half and settles in thin layer on top. Leaves good amounts of lacing. Not very strong aroma; citrus and grassy.

T&M: It is probably due the beer being about 4 and a half months old, but it really doesn't have much to offer taste wise. Slight tropical, grapefruit, and citrus hops, decent amounts of bitterness in the finish (classic sign of the wet hopping). Alcohol is very well hidden, but I can feel it in my face. Quite smooth, mild carbonation, medium body.

overall: Despite it being on the older and not super flavorful side it is still probably my favorite from this brewing company. Would be interested in trying this one when it is fresh.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Cute little 12oz bottle in the typical North Peak style (white label, one color background, something in the middle). Beer poured a cloudy tan/burnt orange color with a thin beige head.

Smell: I can smell some spicy hops before I ever put this near my sniffer! Closer sniffing gives me piney hops, some citrus, and again a trace of "spice" ??

First Drink: Strong bitter hop flavor up front followed by sour citrus notes and finishing with a cleaner "pine" hops flavor.

Mouthfeel: A bit tacky/sticky in my mouth but the carbonation is nice. A good sippin' beer.

Last Drink: A wider variety of citrus coming out now with some grapefruit and orange peel flavors. No real sense of the high ABV but I can feel the "warming" sensation. More sweet malt comes through in the end as well. Nicely varied.

Drinkability: Full of interesting flavors and sensations you can't really go wrong with this brew... unless you aren't a fan of strong IPA!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from stubby, "old-school" bottle into a standard pint glass.
Cloudy, murky, orange/apricot in color, with a huge cloud deck of thick, off-white foam.
Aroma-Big whiff of piney, citrussy hops
Taste-Toasted malt quickly slapped down by onrush of pine and citrus hops. Orange-rind bitterness rides to the finish where the toasted malt reappears for a faintly sweet ending. Caution: 9.0ABV not evident. Easy does it. A rough-hewn offering to be sure, but full of flavor and pretty friendly on the palate. A plate of hot wings or jalapeno poppers should fit the bill nicely. Hop-head recommended.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Oct 23 12 on the bottle.

A: Pours a bright opaque orangish ruby with a 1.5 finger slightly yellowed head. Doesnt leave much lacing but the head sticks around for a while.

S: Very nice hop aroma going on here. A blend of grapefruit, pine and skunkiness. Malts certainly make up the backbone of the aroma.

T: This is one you can sit back and sip on. Has a real fresh hop taste to it but also a strong backing of malt. Earthiness and a whole hop sort of taste.

M: Medium bodied with ample carbonation. A little hot from the booze. Crisp dryness from the hop.

Overall I'm impressed with this beer. Can compete with some of the hoppier offerings out there. For any hophead especially those into wet hop IPAs.

Pours a very darkly assertive tannic orange, as is very cloudy and ruddy and muddy. Smells really terrific. Floral hops, and passion fruits and citrus and maybe pineapple-really inviting here.-stuff you don't really even perceive in an IPA...really veiled and out of the bag smells. Taste is same, and balanced and bitter and terrific and the sustain is strong, the nine percent A hidden nicely in mix. Mouthfeel and carbonation and presence is suitably creamy and sudsy and fussy. I'd drink again. A real fresh hop presence is surely here.

A fresh brew with a date of 10/23/12 nice!

A - pours out a nice Creamy off white yellowish one finger head with tinny bubbles that have great retention on the glass. Its a hazy blood orange brew with bubbles streaming up from the bottom.

S - Wow, fresh hops, pungent sweet mango, peach, slight bitterness, caramel malts and no sign of alcohol.

T - Sweet Lemon rind,pine, grapefruit, mango, bitterness comes in, no sign of alcohol presence besides some warmth in the stomach.

M - This one is a soft full bodied beer with a good amount of carbonation that cleans the palate nicely. This beer is pretty dry.

O - A really nice Double wet hoped IPA from North Peak. A easy drinking 9% brew that any hop head would be glad to sip on. One that I will be buying more of in the near future. Cheers!
