BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Peak Organic Brewing Company
Maine, United States
peakbrewing.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

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.

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow.
Smell is a nice blend of pine and citrus.
Taste is moderate hop citrus with a bitter pine ending.
Very nice IPA.

Paying due respect to the bonofide aficionados, of which I am not, this is one of the most pleasant (read: best) IPAs I've had the pleasure to imbibe. Crisp, clean, natural...distinct and flavorful hop presence, but not bitter. Strong work. VERY nice. Enjoyed it, on-draught.

Quality beer with initial interesting hop flavor but the bitter aftertaste was too much for me.

Golden orange with a heavy haze. Poured with a thick white foam that reduced to a soapy cap with moderate retention. Medium malt and caramel malt aromas with medium fresh citrus and light floral hop aromas. Medium bodied with a lmedium light carbonation and a light creaminess through the middle. Pleasant warmth from the middle to the end. Medium caramel malt flavor up front followed by medium light citrus and floral hop flavors. Medium high hop bitterness through the middle followed by caramel malt to the end. Finished semi-dryly with a light bitter aftertaste. Caramel malt character tilts this a bit out of balance. Bitterness overwhelms the fresh, yet subtle hope flavors.

Comes in an amber color, perhaps slightly imparting a caramel srm slightly darker than average, just barely. Darker than the orange ipas you often see. Clarity is dope. 1/3" white head. Aroma has a good amount of amarillo and simcoe hops. Impressed there.

Big bitterness, lots of copper, caramel and citrus on this one. Lots of grapefruit bitterness and flavor to this one, imparting simcoe in the mouthfeel more than anything else. Still has that caramel sturdy malt backbone.

This was better than expected.
