Disclaimer: I am a fine coffee lover, and coffee beer lover.

Pours a cloudy amber with a finger of white head that calms to a ring and finally to partial skim. Nice lace on the glass.

Coffee forward aroma, with nice citrus hops and neutral sweet balancing it to a remarkable bouquet.

Taste is amazing. Starts with the coffee and citrus hops holding hands and inviting herbal bitter, a bit of grainy sweet, hints of grapefruit pith to an end of sip that is all coffee and herb. Nice.

Mouthfeel is spectacular. so easy drinking, so refreshing, so clean on the palate, finish as fine as you will find in this style. So crazy light in mouth for so much flavor, made by a Grandmaster.

The quality of beer we are privileged to enjoy from Peekskill has gotten to a level of deliciousness one can only describe as epic. Highest recommendation for this coffee and easy drinking hop masterpiece.

Growler filled at the brewery a few hours ago. "Galaxy Hops and Guatemalan Coffee Beans from Coffee Labs Roasters INC." according to the brewery.

This one pours hazed golden with a darker hue, loose and staying eggshell head. Lace left behind is wispy and high on the glass.

Moderate roasted coffee dominates the nose.

Interesting pale ale, with again a moderate and constant coffee presence on the palate. Yes hops, yes malts, but it keeps coming back to that underlying coffee. Roasty and smokey coffee notes wafting all through this one.

Wont be for everybody but I like it for its complexity and willingness to take a chance and be something different.
