Peak Organic IPAPeak Organic IPA
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.

This is a copper colored brew with a bright white head. The scent is sublbtle, with some spicy hops and a grass and acrid note. It is on the the dry side, and has a medium body. Just okay.

I didn't know what to make up the smell at first, I really hadn't experienced it before. This beer is exceptionally bitter, but in a good way. It is VERY assertive but highly drinkable.

drinking this while paying close attention makes this beer incredible, but man, for a brewery so generically named as peak organic (especially a beer named simply ipa) this is a hard one to crack into. for 76 IBUs, this is pretty fierce. yes, it's floral and cirtusy, but you have to FIND that, not get it up front and explore it further. a complicated but still fairly enjoyable ipa.

Pours a golden orange color and had a finger high head to it. Smells of strong lemon and orange but lacks a true citrus taste. It's bitter but smooth and has a nice taste when it hits. Not a typical IPA by IPA standards. I like it but I'm not sure if I would order it again especially being that Maine had many great IPAs.

In my opinion this beer really everything is in place is a Simcoe hop lovers dream. Nice clean flavor totally controlled by hop and pretty minimal malt backbone which is totally right up my alley. Not a crazy beer but old-school and very approachable. Crushability is very high.
