Peak Organic King Crimson is an American Strong Ale that's brewed by Peak Organic Brewing Company in Maine. At 9.50% ABV, King Crimson is dry-hopped with Simcoe hops, and available in winter, in bottles, growlers, and on-tap. Peak Organic King Crimson pours out a dark reddish amber with visible carbonation and a tall beige head that retains quite well and laces as it settles. King Crimson smells of citrus and pine resin hops, with notes of caramel malts. This American Strong Ale tastes as it smells, with sweet caramel malts and alcohol towards the finish, with a balance of bitter hops. King Crimson feels thick and full on the palate with perky carbonation, with heat from the higher alcohol content. At 90 IBUs, Peak Organic King Crimson is a good match for sharp cheeses, beef, poultry, and fish. Try sipping this one from a pint glass, mug, or stein at 45-50 degrees F.
