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.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Appearance: Deep polished coppers under a nice white head that fades rocky and leaves acres of lace in its wake. Swirls with lace.
Nose: Citrus and green vegetation. Fresh hop resins abound. Ferns, fir trees, and Christmas trees in the back. Hint of mint leaf. Cucumber. Like sticking your nose in a handful of dried hop cones. Key lime and lemon pith.
Palate: Bracingly bitter and resinous and piney up front with sweet melba crust in the middle. Orange rind and lemon rind in the back with oily esters. Mint joins the forestry up front along with gracing the edges of each hop resin pine sap edge. Lingering bracing bitterness brings me back for more until there is none left.
Final Thoughts: Yummy! Ive had organic beers that were hits and Ive had organic beers that were misses. Im proud to say that this was definitely a very good Organic IPA. Another fun fact regarding the Peak Organic line of beers is that one of the main suppliers of hops for this line of beers lives here in the Treasure Coast. Think local and drink local.

Pours a light copper color with a bubbly and creamy white head which laces a lot. Aroma of floral hops. Taste is clean but little in the way of body for an IPA, only slight bitterness with a grassy aftertaste. This needs body to be a quality IPA and a touch more bitterness.

A very nice hoppy aroma, but a bit lacking bitterness. Floral notes. Amber in color with a white head.
