COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique India Pale Ale, showcasing our favorite hops. The Amarilloģ, Simcoeģ, and Nugget hops give this beer a bounty of hop flavor and aroma without too much bitterness in the finish.

Great tasting beer, not too strong of a bite. Smooth finish and organic ingredients.

hazy, floral, medium sweetness, very bitter, lightly sour, medium body, thin feel, average carbonation, bitter. A tasty beer with a good dose of hops leading to a crisp, bitter beer.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. It had a best before date notched at August of 2013. It cost $2.50 ($0.21 per ounce).

Appearance: Opaque rusty copper/light brown hue. Forms a small, white, soapy head which almost completely evaporates and leaves minor lacing.

Smell: An interesting, but odd mix of orange citrus, pine, and tea leaves.

Taste: Iíve often said the IPAs that overlooked and underrated are those that donít fall into simple East Coast or West Coast style. Peak Organic IPA is a great example as it has a little of each (pine and citrus, respectfully), but also contains a significant herbal character akin to sweet iced tea. Yet it still remains plenty bitter to conform to the IPA style. I was surprised by how much I liked it.

A slight orange juice flavor up front with a strong iced tea or green tea herbal character through the middle. The citrus from the Amarillo hops complements this character quite well. Thereís a strong, slightly dry, bitter bite at the apex of the swig. I get a quick burst of coffee flavor that subsides as more orange flavor approaches to finish off the palette. This is a satisfying, surprisingly delectable brew thatís worth drinking for its uniqueness alone.

Drinkability: While Peak Organic IPA does have a fun, enjoyable taste, what makes it even better is the fact itís remarkably easy to get down. The mouthfeel is crisp, but not intense, sticky or heavy. It goes down easy with no carbonation lingering. The hops do leave a slightly pasty, dry aftertaste, but itís easy to look past. Itís tempting to drink in large quantities, because the 7.1% ABV weight is well hidden and efficient.

Bottle--when the weather warms up, I love a good IPA and this fits the bill. Aroma was wet hops and oh, so fresh smelling backed up with citrus. The taste follows right along with solid, round hop taste with citrus and the slightest touch of malt. Oily mouth feel in the finish. Oh, yea, the color was amber with a nice head and lots and lots of lacing. Solid brew. Publix mix pack.

Pours a hazy orange golden with a small white foam head. Smell is floral and complex as well as citrus elements . Taste is bitter and carbonated but not to much of either. Floral hops make for a good session IPA with a dry finish. More complex out of the bottle but easily drinkable in it. Very solid IPA.

Fra fad, RedFarm, NYC. Orange-gylden med et off-white skum. Crisp velbalanceret, mundrensende IPA fuld af gran, citrus og harpiks-noter. Super til RedFarms moderniserede dim sums

Good aroma of leaves and flowers, regular copper pale looks with decent head. Very good bitterness, a sum of the hops used. Not that astringent. Dont know about IBUs but I would say at least 75. And the palate is just perfect for an IPA. Almost too perfect to jump to a Douple IPA. Extra Bitter, extra dry, and extremely consistent and lasting.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Itís organic, itís an IPA, itís 7.1%. What more could you want? It doesnít pretend to be anything else, itís above average for the style. Floral & hoppy and very drinkable. More please.
