COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
North Peak Hoodoo Midwest Wet Hop IPA is the first of it’s 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.

Overpowering fresh herbal and pine hops! Slightly cloudy golden color, with average head. Minimum malt balance as promised. Alcohol didn’t intrude. Best North Peak brew that I have tried.

Cloudy orange pour with sparce specks of white on top. Grassy aroma with oranges, syrupy. Average carbonation, thicker mouthfeel that’s tingly, drier finish. Bitter citrus rind flavor, orange juice, grapefruit and piney hops mixed with astringent malts. Straight forward bitter IPA that lacks complexity.

Pours clear golden orange with a large beige soapy head. The aroma has powder/perfume hops, light toast to the malt, caramel sweetness and soft citrus. It has a fairly full body with a moderate amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with lots of sweet rich caramel malt, mustiness, grapefruit, earth and floral hops. The finish dries out and has lots of pine, but the sweet rich malt is still big. There is a lingering resin. Interesting.

Bottle sample at the wet hop tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 10/23/14. Clear amber in color with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt and earthy hops. Malty flavor with slight booze before a grassy and earthy hop finish.

Small sampler at local draft house. Aroma is like pink grapefruit. Fair IPA taste but leaves a pretty strong aspirin taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SpongeRuiner (777) - Michigan, USA - JAN 28, 2014
On tap at Jolly Pumpkin. A slight danky hop aroma. Big fresh hop taste upfront. Sits on the tongue in a good way. Not bad. Pretty straight forward with its flavor.

12 fl oz bottle shared by my buddy, served child in a tulip glass. Hazy deep amber with a thin white rim. Resin and pine, nice fruitiness, caramel, quite sweet-smelling, slightly peppery, more bright, assertive and refreshing than diabolical. Medium body, fine, gentle carbonation. Sweet, peppery, fruity, resinous, light caramel, a little booze; sweet with pretty good bitterness and a long caramel, pine and fruit finish. A little too sweet for me.

kevinator (1056) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Pretty good. Nice piney hop aroma with with a hint of malts. The description indicates the hops used are Michigan-grown, which seem pretty aromatic. Nice copper color with a thin head. Average weight palate with good carbonation. Nice hops bitterness, pretty clean. Good grain presence to balance, which adds a slight sweetness. Nice offering into a what is becoming a very crowded category.

WillRunForBeer supplied—thanks! Shared with the Frank Zappa lookalike at my pad. To long-stemmed wine glass, it pours a deep orange nectar with which a thin, sudsy whitish head stood atop. Aromas of graham crackers, rock thyme, salted caramel, lavender petals, and krill oil. Tastes of everything described above with the addition of American hops and yeast by swallow. Could drink a lot of this. Good beer; get yourself some.
