Liz’s wedding. Too hoppy. This is nothing too exciting. Would not bother with this again.

never had a peak organic brew before, first whiff reveals Ringwood yeast diacetyl, kind of surprising. Then I looked and found it is brewed by Shipyard in Maine and not Portland Oregon as I thought after a cursory look at bottle. Very much in the style of Middle Ages IPA, another ringwood based IPA.

Pours a light orange hue. Nice bit of head on this one. Nice big floral and weedy bouquet. Good load of bitterness here. I wasn’t expecting much and this IPA exceeded it.

Don’t know why so many poor ratings. This is probably a slightly above-average IPA, but in a field with so many that butcher the style with poor choice of hops. Good aroma and medium bitter.

Pours a clear amber with small off-white head. Aroma of pine. The flavor is an odd combination of citrus and pine. I have not yet decided if I like it. Medium body, dry finish.

Golden pour with orange hue. Creamy white head. Very piney and juniper aroma. Flavor is also very piney and juniper. You'd think it was dry hopped with pine needles. Clean dry finish.

February 2012. I’ve always found that organic IPA’s somehow remove the important aromas and flavors, making the beers more bland, but this one is an exception. It’s still an IPA and a very good one too. It got balance, hops, pine and fruit.

pours clear dark golden with a decent off-white head, some retention. crisp lightly toasted malts, hint of caramel, pine and citrus, some spruce and other leafiness, earthiness too. bit of skunk. moderate carbonation, light body - not watery, piney-citrusy slightly unbalanced finish. ok.. but still a DP.
