Dont 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. ---Rated via iPhone

February 2012. Ive always found that organic IPAs somehow remove the important aromas and flavors, making the beers more bland, but this one is an exception. Its 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.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, lemon, and honey. Taste is grapefruit up front, citrus, and pine bitterness in the finish.

Nice copper, pour. Has a creamy white head and decent lacing. A pleasant hop aroma. Notable bitterness all the way through that ends in a not so pleasant finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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: Ive often said the IPAs that overlooked and underrated are those that dont 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. Theres 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 thats 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 its 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 its easy to look past. Its tempting to drink in large quantities, because the 7.1% ABV weight is well hidden and efficient.
