There is an almost candied grapefruit quality to the hops here. The bitterness is appropriate for the malt. Easily drinkable.

Pretty, brassy pour. Crisp hop aroma. Medium bitter hop finish. Not bad but pretty forgettable.

12 oz bottle, BBE November 2009, from Supreme Liquors, Cambridge MA, drunk on 24 October 2009. Marginally hazy amber colour. Loose off-white head. Distinct grassy hop aroma - moist and a touch clammy. Sweetish touches initially on the palate followed by a developing bitterness. Hops are grapefruit accented. Some balancing biscuity malt. Bitterness lingers into the finish and aftertaste. Light, slightly sharp mouthfeel. Not a blockbuster IPA but a good, clean, sraightforward drinking beer.

12oz. Bottle: Gusher! Aroma of Earthy hops, raw dough, Ringwood yeast, slight honey, and some sweeter malts. Poured orange/amber in color with a large, rocky, fluffy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Lightly sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of caramel malt, hops, Earth, and a little diacetyl from Shipyard’s Ringwood yeast obsession. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Earthy hop and slight caramel finish is heavily bitter, lingering, and dry.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2010 Location: Draft at Ardesia, 5/15/10

Aroma: Aroma has caramel malts, crystal, flowers, and citrus
Appearance: Hazy orange color with a coating white lace
Flavor: Taste is medium sweet with a nice bitter backbone
Palate: The palate is a bit chewy, medium body, somewhat creamy
Overall Impression: This beer was alright overall. I liked it, and I would drink it again, though it was nowhere near the top of its style in my opinion.

Leighton (17470) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a moderate white head. Nose has some decent pine and citrus, as well as light, sweet malts. A pretty tame flavor profile, fruity and floral. Medium in body, average carbonation, some light stickiness in the finish. Not bad.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Light Amber pour with a light fluffy white head. Aroma is stick sweet malt with a touch of grain and light, floral hops. Pine sap makes an appearance as well. Flavor is bland at first, but sweet maltiness edges in in the center, a bit bready. Finishes up with a strikingly bitter, but a tad soapy finish. This is almost really good. But it settles for being decent.

This is the second Peak beer I’ve tried and the second one I’ve been impressed w/. I am normally suspicious of beers labeled organic but good things are happening. This pours a nice orance w/ industry-standard head of medium bubbles that lasts as just a haze on top of the beer. The nose is mild but nice, light and refreshing. Lemony citrus is the main flavor w/ a good deal of earthy bitterness in the finish to match a hint of sweetness. A bit of iced tea astringency rounds things out. This beer drinks very light. The texture is nice though w/ soft carbonation. My only complaint is that while it tastes great, there is really no reason for it to be quite as strong as it is and still tastes like this. You could get this much flavor in a five percent alcohol beer and you could drink a lot more of it, which in this case would be a very good thing indeed.

The aroma is citrus, floral, caramel. Standard IPA appearance, amber/gold, white head. The flavor is more earthy, floral, caramel is relegated to the background a little more. The finish is earthy, floral, mild but lingering. Medeium in body. Servicable IPA.
