New beer tab, we are going to sample out another beer from North Peak Brewing. It is their everyday Diabolical India Pale Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog on their Imperial IPA, you know the history of this northwest of Michigan craft brewery. If you have not, please, read the beer blog post to know the history and information on this Michigan Brewery. Let us get into the beer.
It has a cloudy copper color with little white bubble head on this India Pale Ale. The smell is citrus and malty notes. The taste is mild carbonation citrus notes for this English style India Pale Ale. The aftertaste is a little weird and I can figure it out what it is. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.northpeak.net):
The devil made us do it. From the ABV and IBU figures to the fiendish use of Cascade, Perle, and Willamette hops. lucifer was whispering in our ears the entire time. Citrus and pine scents great you and are followed by the sharp bitterness expected of an IPA. The beer’s true wickedness is revealed in the smooth Pale, Crystal 30 and wheat malts that surreptitiously broaden the beer’s appeal to more than just hopheads.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I have to say this is one of the worse IPA’s that I have ever had in my life. It is towards the bottom of my listed. I do not like the hops and malts that they use in this brew. I pay good money for a fresh beer. I had this beer three times. I had it twice in the bottle and once on draft. It all tasted the same. I thought maybe I received a bad beer. This beer is not the worse in the IPA world. I could name a few that will be under it. I love the hops they are using but I just believe they used them wrong or combination of hops is wrong. It could be the yeast or maybe I received three bad batches. I really doubt that idea. I will say this many times just because I did not like this beer. It does not mean you will not like it. We have different likes and dislikes and I would run with it. I courage you to go try it. Please, let me know what you think. Sorry North Peak Brewing! I am being honest here in this review. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
