COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
North Peak Hoodoo Midwest Wet Hop IPA is the first of itís kind. Brewed with fresh from the farm Michigan hops for exceptional flavor. Hoodoo is hops from start to finish with a little malt in the middle, just enough to keep Hoodoo from going Voodoo on you. not to worry - pretty much nothing but hops.

12 oz. bottle from Dutchís. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice resiny, mild citrus and earthy hop character, some toasted malt, very light caramel. The bottle says 8% while this lists 9%, either way it is easy to drink and I donít get much alcohol. I sometimes overlook these, but many are pretty tasty solid beers.

A bonus from a recent trade. Pours a dark orange color with a white head. Aroma is stinky fresh hop and a bit of citrus. Flavor is medium bodied and much like the aroma. Finish is a touch pine bitter now. Decent drink with good balance and nice hops.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/1/2013. Pours moderately hazy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest, grapefruit, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, grapefruit, pine resin, orange rind, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Large amount of earthy pine resin bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest/rind, pineapple, pine resin, floral, grass, bread, and light caramel on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of citrus/pine hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance and minimal cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and very sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice wet hop IPA. All around good complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle to snifter. This yearís batch is listed as 8% on the bottle. Looks good; a transparent orange with foamy off-white head. Smells solid; a somewhat bitter hop profile with a pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smoo mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

demitriustown (1092) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2013
12 oz bottle: Aroma is big on the citrus grapefruit like hops, maybe some malt in the background but thatís way far back. Appearance is a light amber pout with a thick white head that lingers. Taste has got a lot of hop punch in there, but really well done though nothing really horrible. Palate is medium mouth feel with a lingering hop note in the aftertaste. As a Imperial IPA itís good, but not up to par with the big boys. Cheers!

Bottle. North Peaks best work. Clear dark gold. Excellent balance of bitter hops and sweetness. Could be a little smoother.

This beer really surprised me. It tastes almost like Hopslam. Super hoppy but enough sweetness to smooth it out. A great DIPA. I would love to have this again.

Very hazy dark amber beer. Big off white head. The head tastes of dark toffee and citrus and pine hops. Palate is softish and semi dry. Creamy malt, still with the dark toffee. Seamlessly integrated with pleasant citrus pine hops. Trace of red berry fruits. Trace of aniseed. Soft finish. Very drinkable.

Thin offwhite head with decent retention and lace. Lil hazy ambe/copper color. Nice, fresh, danky nose with piny juicy hoppyness. med/full bodied, oily, lil resiny. Dry malts, piney resiny hops, grapefruit and earthy hoppy godness. Dry, lasting finish, fruity and dank, earthy, musty goodness. fresh and juicy. A pleasent surprise. Picked up a sixer in OhiO. Pulled a rabbit outta my ass with this one. Nice.200
