Had this with Latin food because I love IPA’s, which was a weird pairing. It’s a good IPA, not outstanding but very drinkable

St. Augustine, FL - Broudy’s Liquor’s - 12 oz stubby bottle. Slightly murky medium orange with a slight off-white head. Aroma has some ripening vegetable notes, a hint of piney notes. Flavor is very malt oriented for an IPA with some sweet caramel accents, a touch of maple syrup sweetness and just a hint of citrus bitterness, Smooth mouthfeel. Best of the handful of North Peaks I picked up in St. Augustine.

(perhaps a fresh bottle - no date - but bought in MI) pours hazy very light golden with a nice creamy off-white-orange head, some retention and lacing. sweet and spicy faint mangoes, danky melons, doughy and spicy caramel, sweetened apricots, citrus, pine, minty alcohol - clearly more than 7%. moderately low carbonation, medium body - oily and sticky, boozy and slightly harsh/tingling grassy-spicy-citrusy-piney finish. a tad muted and kind of sugary. still ok.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I dig this one, for the most part. Pint pour in a dirty glass at some random pub. Pours fairly amber with a decent off white head. Nose is floral and flowery, citrus hops and a little bready. Flavor is much nicer, juicy citrus and some papaya like flavors. Medium body and quite drinkable. I could do it again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice hazy golden glazed orange color with a one finger white foamy head that mushroom caps and gently subsides with a nice rocky foaminess hovering above the top of the beer. The lacing was there once the head finally dissipated. It graced the sides of the glass in a speckled sort of manner.
The smell had a nice gentle rolling blend of sweet citrus to sweet sharp pine coming through in a pungent way.
The taste took those flavors and added a really nice bitterness to assist in the blend of the beer.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability running about my mouth and tongue. The carbonation seemed appropriately styled as the sharp bitter flavors pummels my taste buds into submission.
Overall, what a nice bittersweet AIPA that I would have again.
