North Peak Sinuous is a unique Celtic Ale. Refreshing, clean and crisp with a subtle roast note and malty finish. Brewed in Traverse City, MI on the Old Mission Peninsula using incorporating local hops.

On tap at Jolly Pumpkin on the peninsula. Pours a deep dark amber/ruby with a small eggshell ring of foam. Mellow nose of caramel apple and a little toast. Fairly sweet with some bitterness and a dash of tartness. Lighter bodied, average carbonation, slick on the palate. Good with food.

deep copper with one finger head. very strong malt base with nice complexity. i’m not a huge fan of the style, but this is a mighty good beer anyway.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 2/6/2012. Pours fairly crystal clear reddish copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. some minimal spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of caramel, molasses, raisin, prune, cherry, apple, toast, biscuit, toffee, and herbal. Very nice aromas with good strength and balance. A very pleasantly enjoyable malty aroma. Taste of caramel, molasses, toast, biscuit, cherry, raisin, apple, red grape, toffee, earth, and herbal. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, molasses, dark fruit, toast, biscuit, earth, and light herbal spiciness on the finish for a bit. Great balance of malty flavors with good complexity; and no cloying sweetness at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a very nice creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden with pretty much zero warming on the finish noticed. Overall this is a very excellent Irish red ale! Great balance of fruity flavors with toasted caramel maltiness; and extremely smooth and easy to drink. The best North Peak beer I have had to date.

Copper color with off-white head that lingered well. Malt-heavy aroma, smooth body, and very malty finish. Minimal hop interference but pretty good balance. For lack of a more articulate way to describe it, it had a very "British" character that I liked. Also happy to see an "Irish" rendition that wasn’t a red.

Bottle. Poured clear dark copper color with a large frothy off-white head that was was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate roasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

12oz bottle, bottled 2/6/12. Clear red-orange color, thin foamy khaki head. Good lace. Soft carbonation, on the slightly lighter side, easier to drink. Spice and light hop aroma. Light sweet taste, a little zest. Decent Celtic ale... I just don’t think the style is very interesting

The mouthfeel of this beer is particularly amazing. It is quite slippery without being viscus. A unique experience for the pallet and not bad flavor either.

Clear copper with a silky beige topper that fades away very slowly. Aroma of cereal grains, earthy hops, toasted malt and some caramel. Taste is sweeter than I expected with caramel up front and some grains, dull hops, mild black pepper and a slight bitter finish.

Pours light amber with light hop notes. Drinks dry and crisp with behind the scene malts and rising hops. Nice dry finish.
