A surprising entry into the NE Pale Ale/IPA market by Peak Organic. Light, easy drinking and flavorful. The Citra takes center stage here, complimented by some sweet orange Amarillo funk. Well done!

Very solid beer. Can drink this at any time, any where. At $10 a 4-pack this is one of the best values for juicy tall boys. Organic ingredients and flavorful hops. Love it

This beer pours a cloudy straw yellow color with deeper highlights of gold in the center area that is most hazy. The head is one finger, creamy and white with very little retention that leaves some rings of hanging lacing in it's wake.

Smell is very bright and citrusy. Juicy tangerine and grapefruit aromas leap out of the glass and assault the senses. No malt presence.

Taste starts of the same, fruity and juicy, but there is a solid bready malt backbone that makes itself known mid sip only to be washed away by a pithy bitter finish. Nice, but just a bit muddled.

Feel is very light, slightly thin for the style and maybe lacking a bit in the carbonation department.

Overall a very solid beer and great for a hot day. The aroma is outstanding, but it's a shame that the taste doesn't match it.

From the can dated 1/25/17. Sampled on April 8, 2017.

The pour is to be expected for the style including a hazy golden yellow and a modest white head. Pretty basic.

I pick up a nice grapefruit and hoppy character on the nose along with toasted bread. This is what one would expect for the style. Not quite as forward but there.

Medium body.

Juicy hop flavors for sure such as grapefruit over the toasted bread, Mild to moderate finish. OKI Hopheads - you may like it.

I compared this side by side with Super Fresh (my favorite Peak Organic beer).
Both are wicked dry hopped and while this is superb (and juicy), I have to say I prefer Super Fresh. It's much tastier.
Regardless, this is a great pale ale with a hob bomb profile. Smooth and satisfying. I'll call this my second favorite PO beer (for now).

Pours a light semi-hazy straw color with a finger of head. The nose is modestly happy. The flavor profile is akin to that of a session IPA. The body is lighter than expected for the style.

This is quite a tasty beer though having just enjoyed Peak Organic's Super Fresh I can't help but compare the two. This is a light colored beer with a up-front hop kick and a mellow finish. I'm looking forward to the rest of the 6 pack though Super Fresh was a significantly tastier beer.
