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.

12 oz bottle. Pours orange with long lasting, foamy, white head. Aroma is citrusy hops, biscuit malt and orange marmalade. Body is medium and tangy. A lot of citrusy hops, biscuit malt and tropical fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and very hoppy. Overall it is tasty IPA.

Very floral, hoppy, delicious feel in mouth.
Enjoyed the taste... a light body but full flavor. I love IPAs and this one suits me perfectly.
Not to hoppy, not to light, just the right amount of flavor.
and 7ABV... we all know the real reason we drink (the beer snobs are in denial, but we drink.. to feel drunk (or buzzed). If you drinking for the flavor and taste then go get some TEA! its way better for ya. But i'm drinking for the buzz.... and at 7ABV and a great taste I give this beer a 4.5!

12oz Bottle from Party Source Syracuse NY for $2.50 tax in

Appearance - Slightly hazy gold colour with an average size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, hops, apricots, grapefruits

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, grapefruits, and hops. There is also some caramel and apricots and a touch of corn syrup.

Overall - Better than I was expecting. A decent amount of hop bite and a nice mix of fruity/malty flavours. Not at the top of the class, but a beer worth trying.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Puffy head that leaves some nice lacing behind. Pretty light amber color with a red-orange tint.

S: Citrus/fruity hop aroma, very enticing. Smells like it won't be on the bitter side of IPAs. While the smell it does have is quite pleasant, it isn't particularly strong.

T: Taste follows smell to the tee. The hop blend is just sweet enough, and it is less bitter than most IPAs I have tried. Like the smell, the taste isn't that strong, but it is delicious. Almost doesn't taste like an IPA, maybe more like a blend of one with a sweet ale.

M: Leaves a tingly hop presence on back of tongue, not too heavy, and goes down smoothly.

O: I chose this in one of those create-you-own six-pack deals, and wasn't expecting too much as I had not heard of this brewer. Very pleasantly surprised. Would definitely recommend to all.
