3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I found this to be typical IPA from the right coast (East that is) with a hop character lacking and mild malt, this is more typical of a pale ale. Though I found the beer quite refreshing.
This is in fact called their cask IPA and only served on cask, a good idea, and the best beer at this brewpub tonight. Some hoppy aroma, an average mouthfeel. Light orange colour with some lace dots, and a white head. Served close to room temperature, which is correct. Some grapefruit and a decent bitterness. cmconrad99 (10) - Lorain, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2008
First Cask Ale, maybe that could explain the rating. Yet was served warm, flat, flavor was watered down. Tmoney99 (15114) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Draft sampler at North Peak. Poured an hazy amber color with a moderate fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Heavy sour citrus hop aroma. Medium smooth body with soft carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good smooth bitter drinkable brew. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Tap at brewery. Pours tea brown with an aroma of sweet sugary hops. Flavor is floral hops with water. Palate is watery. Not bad; call it IPA light. hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2002
About what you'd expect. Strong rise of citric hops raised almost, but not quite, to the level of insect repellant. Everything subdues and softened in a lovely way by the cask action. Microbrewed pale maltlessness.
