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.

Bottle. So the beer pours a fairly dark amber color and sports a pretty large head of tan suds that sticks around for a while. Aromas are thick with hops. Like that non-description hops smell you get from raw hops when youíre brewing. I have a hard time telling them apart at that stage of the game. There is a bit of a resin edge to the nose, and this really becomes pronounced on the palate. The beer is caramel based (increasingly so as it warms and airs) from the malt perspective and resin and pine based as far as hops are concerned. This one is a winner and reminds me quite a bit of northern Michigan hikes through the pine trees.

Overpowering fresh herbal and pine hops! Slightly cloudy golden color, with average head. Minimum malt balance as promised. Alcohol didnít intrude. Best North Peak brew that I have tried.

This boss IPA poured a clear golden and immediately was very strong, floral hops. It tasted rich and citrusy, strong but not bitter overload. Overall this is one of the best strong IPAs Iíve had in awhile. I will be drinking this more, would like to find it on tap!

Pours a mostly clear copper color with a foamy white head that lingers a long time. Aroma is very piney and floral with hints of grapefruit, oranges and caramel malt. Taste is an explosion of dank hops. Tons of pine and grapefruit, lots of caramel malt to balance. Really intense flavor. Moderate bitterness. Thick and oily mouthfeel. Great beer.

A midwest masterpiece! Keep it settled for a clear hop/pine explosion or swirl in the hoppy resin goodness for a textural experience beyond no other. If you love hops this was made for you and a generous 9%+ alcohol does not hurt either.

Poured into a pint glass. 2.0 A: This is an ugly looking brew. Opaque orangish brown. One of the worst colors Iíve ever seen. This had too much carbonation, so it took three pours to get the glass full. Eventually, three fingers of foamy off-white head. Retention is good, but lacking is sparse and completely randomly placed. 3.5 S: Mega-dank hops. Floral, lightly piney, some herbalness, and most importantly cat piss. Seems to be plenty of bready yeastiness going on as well. Tough to smell much past the yeast and hops. 4.0 T: Iím shocked to find that the yeast isnít overly dominant. Rather, citrusy, floral, and herbal hops do the talking. Yes, the yeast is still there, but it seems to work with the beer rather than against. Mild to moderate bitterness. Some caramel and neutral sweetness. Bready yeast. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good carbonation, despite the multiple pours. Reasonably creamy and smooth. 4.0 D: Good, hoppy beer. Ugly as hell, but easy to drink. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-14-2011 00:52:15

Sorry I canít do any better than this but this tastes like soda. Too fizzy and candy-like. Maybe my taster is off tonight.

Dogbrick (7952) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2011
This beer is a reddish-amber color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Fruity hops in the note along with notes of sweet malt. Medium body with a citrusy hops character and flavors of grainy malt and pine in the background. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering grapefruity hops aftertaste. Straightforward, well-made IIPA all around.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Draft at HopCat, Grand Rapids. Ruddy orange-brown body, thick puffy beige head. Bitter piny nose with some citrus rind and tannic berryskin. Very bitter, prickly, toasty body with hard candies and berries, becoming quite sweet with warmth and after a few sips. Very good, but almost cloying sweetness.

Bottle thanks to Sean! Pours a clear deep amber with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a decent amount of grassy and floral hops with a bit of grapefruit and backing sweet grains. Flavor starts smooth with grapefruit and floral hops but transitions to more of a bitter grapefruit finish.
