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.

Kind of just ok for my likings. Nothing horrible about it, just nothing special either. Pours an orange color, slightly hazy, with a decent off white head. Aroma is pretty light. Mostly caramel malts, some biscuit malt, and some pine. Taste is not quite as malty as the aroma. Some pine bitterness on the back end. Not a lot of hoppiness for an IPA. Solid beer. Just not outstanding.

A thanks goes out to the chief of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some pine, light malts. Taste is pine, minty, light tropical fruits, some malts are present. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

This IPA pours a murky orange / dark yellow color with a medium white frothy head. The smell is not very strong, but fairly hoppy with some pine notes and some minor citrus as well, pretty standard IPA scent. The taste is much hoppier then the smell led me to believe with an herbal piney flavor dominating. There are some floral and citrus flavors as well with some underlying caramel malt flavors also. As the beer warms a bit to become cool, and not cold, the citrus flavors come more to the forefront and takeover from the herbal character. The finish is semi-dry and the body is medium. Not a bad IPA, but a little bit one note and not as refined as great examples of the style. I personally prefer the beer cool rather than cold.

This tropical hazy IPA is one of the better bottled IPAs in Maine and is a bit underrated on this site.

Cloudy beers are a GOOD thing. That means it was bottle conditioned and has more aroma and taste. These are gooooood things folks.

Sometimes this beer is amazing and sometimes it's quite bitter and off-putting. Not sure if it's lack of consistently when brewing or freshness. When it's on, it's an absolutely delicious beer.

Organic and tasty.

The beer comes in a medium hazy pale amber.

The aroma offers medium bready malts, light floral and grassy notes.

The flavor hits of medium piney bitterness that lingers throughout the palate on the finish covered with some lightly sweet bready malts. The bitterness sticks onto the palate with the aromas not coming through to offer more flavor on the palate.
