Amber-gold with good, foamy white head / Nose of fresh pine and weed / Medium body, somewhat chewy, very dry throughout becoming bitter on the finish / Flavors of cut pine with burnt sugar and grapefruit notes / A bit out of balance but a good effort. brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2009
From a 12 oz bottle @ 18 Seaboard in Raleigh NC - poured a cloudy orange with a white head - aroma of citrus, hops and pine. Nice citrusy taste with plenty of hops, spice and pine. Tasty IPA that doesn’t try to over-do it. aracauna (3651) - Georgia, USA - JUL 25, 2010
There is an almost candied grapefruit quality to the hops here. The bitterness is appropriate for the malt. Easily drinkable. bhensonb (15601) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours amber with a decent whit head. Aroma is nicely floral/citrus. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Could be a touch of diacetyl in the flavor. Otherwise nice floral/citrus hop over a slightly roasted malt. Finishes a bit buttery, but definitely bitter. Ibrew2or3 (8807) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Pours brilliantly clear copper with off white head. The aroma lets out spicy hops, malt sweetened tangerine, a sliver of butterscotch, caramel and maltiness. The taste has a citrus bitter hop bias that does a pretty good job covering up the diacetyl butteriness smoldering off in the corner. So it isn’t too hateful.

Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, slight murkiness, sticky white head with webby lacing, Pleasant floral and spruce aroma. Standard, solid IPA flavor, plenty of grapefruity goodness, a bit of caramel. some nuttiness. Clean even mouthfeel. Pretty solid for an organic, DuffMan (10596) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle. The first Peak brew to not smell like shit! YAY! Nice aroma of citrus and pine, undercurrents of berries. The hops are nice of the palate, with toffee malt taking a backseat and coming off as a little thin. Definitely the best of Peak’s offerings that I’ve had.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Fresh citrusy hops in the nose. Medium body, first a little sweet caramel then nice and dry citrusy hops and a little peach. Dry and hoppy finish. Not a HUGE IPA, but straight and quaffable. 050411 Suttree (6479) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2011
So, I picked this up for the tick, not realizing it was brewed at Shipyard. So, in a way, it got points right off the bat for not being a buttery mess. Actually not bad - nice mix of the usual malty flavors and hops. Actually leans bit towards the sweeter, maltier versions. JFGrind (2064) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2011
Golden, moderate bitterness chock full of good flavor IPA. Alcohol content bordering a 2XIPA, but well blended with grapefruit flavors and malt backbone.
