COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap: The aroma consists of moderate grapefruit, citrus, and a hint of caramel. Itís 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. Itís 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 donít 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 (2484) - 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 (788) - 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 (2551) - 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 (8474) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

Bottle from the shelves of Tipples. A little surprised this was still in the fridge, as it has a bottling date of 12/3/13 and I grabbed it today (8/16/14). Oh well. Pours murky copper orange color with a very small ring of white head. Aroma is straight malts and some stale hops, bready and caramelly. Flavor is watered down bready malts, light bitter, sticky and sweet. Light to medium bodied with medium low carbonation. Meh. Need to try it fresh.
