Sample at a tasting. This is my favorite style of IPA- a strong citrus flavor and not too bitter. The flavors seemed to mellow some as it warmed up. Not quite the best, but very good in my opinion. Dangerbrew (1) - - MAR 26, 2012 does not count
Great tasting beer, not too strong of a bite. Smooth finish and organic ingredients. monty688 (1) - Vermont, USA - MAR 26, 2012 does not count
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. ChadPolenz (1819) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2013
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: I’ve often said the IPAs that overlooked and underrated are those that don’t 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. There’s 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 that’s 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 it’s 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 it’s easy to look past. It’s tempting to drink in large quantities, because the 7.1% ABV weight is well hidden and efficient.
had this at pie by the pound went very well with the great pizza i had was a very good ipa a nice easy drinking beer that has a good amount of hops one to try

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 LomYst (880) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2015
Tropisch fruitig hoo aroma, fris maar intens... fris bitter zoet... lichte carbs... bitter hoppige afdronk met veel tropisch fruit en n beetje gras... heerlijk ciocanelu (2529) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 22, 2015
8.2% ABV version. Hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma is bursting with dank hops. Chives, dill and other garden herbs come to mind. Taste follows, nice and hoppy but not very bitter at first. Builds up a bit towards the finish and lingers in the aftertaste. Body and carbonation are smooth and the alcohol is really well hidden, making the beer very drinkable. Overall this was a nice surprise.
