Peak Organic Brewing Company Pale Ale

I'm starting to really really really like the Peak Organic Brewing Company. I've reviewed a few of their other beers (see below) and they were both above average (with the IPA being exceptional). This is their Pale Ale, and it keeps Peak's batting average at 1.000, as it is a delicious and refreshing pale ale. 

The Pale Ale under review in this review is quite good. There is a little hoppy flavor to it, but not nearly as strong as their IPA (44 vs 76 IBUs), as well as some hints of citrus. It's also pretty light and crisp, and is a great beer to have at the end of a long day in the sun. Or during a long day in the sun if you're on vacation or something. I would even go so far to say that this is a great beer to have while hanging out with your friends by the pool or the lake or by some other body of water, it's that good. The pale ale runs at 5.1% ABV, and came in the 12-pack variety pack that ran $12.99. Out-of-state I've seen sixers that run at $8.99.

I had this and the other Peak beers while in Maine, so you might be thinking that I am over-rating them because of that, but you would be wrong, friendo. This pale ale (and the others) are quality beers that you will enjoy, regardless of the state you are in.
