North Peak Wanderer is a Session IPA. This exciting new style is balanced with malt and hop characters and has a clean finish. The combination of full hop flavor and lower alcohol gives Wanderer a a wonderful drinkability! Wanderer has a light, clean and refreshing body, and is hopped with Perle, Willamette, Centennial and Citra hops that gives Wanderer a Citrus and Pine finish. Wanderer is rounded out with a generous amount of dry-hopping with Citra hops to fill the nose. It is brewed in Traverse City, MI, on Old Mission Peninsula incorporating locally grown hops.

Cloudy copper with a thick, foamy head. The aroma is hoppy, but sweet with elements of tea. Flavor, likewise, has elements of tea and light bitterness. As a huge fan of session IPAs (e.g. Founders, Lagunitas, Stone/Kelsey McNair/Ballast Point) this lacks the upfront hop flavor, and is a bit of a disappointment.

Pailhead (6015) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAY 25, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate grapefruit, citrus, and a hint of caramel. It’s a mostly transparent amber with a touch of haze and a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light toasted caramel. The finish has moderate grapefruit, faint lemon, and a touch of grass. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

12 oz bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have grassy, earthy hops, light citrus, toasted bready malts, dry, sessionable (yes), would I want to (no), I just don’t get some of these session IPAs.

Bottle. Pours a hazy copperwith a huge head and lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus and light fruit. Taste of cirtus, fruit and a bit of grain. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly light body, crisp, clean feel. Good session beer.

unclemike (2666) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Very hazy dirty amber. Good head. Orange juice sweet citrus scent. Very light body. Sharp citrus hop start mellows out and is enjoyable. You could pound back a few. In general I like more malt but for low ABV this is pretty nice

Aggie80 (790) - Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Nice head with good lacing. Orange tea colored pour from the stubby bottle. Nice flavors without the high alcohol content, this meets the expectations of a nice session beer.

umich03jm (2991) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Tap at Null. Clear amber pour with a small head that fades to a thin ring and leaves great lacing. Aroma is very grainy, some sugary sweetness, and wet grass. Tastes artificially sweet. Very weird. Some citrus and grass too. Odd beer.

arminjewell (8842) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought grass, bread, biscuit, hints of dough, some lemon. Taste is a mix of grass, spicy hops, some floral notes into some biscuit, more zesty, almost lemony hops, finishing dry, spicy.

Pours a dull orange, well over - carbonated. Overflows when cap is removed, can only pour half the bottle. Bottle shows one year since creation, bought last week. Aroma is weak, and of standard hops with low malt. Light malt flavor with a dust of hops. Slight bitter and dry aftertaste with sticky mouthfeel. Advertisement on bottle says "session India Pale Ale". Seems to mean light/weak.
