Hop Common from the Peekskill brewery and that of Defiant Brewing in Pearl River NY are one of the same as the brewmaster at Defiant produces some of the brews served at Peekskill Brewing. This is a wonderful brew; grapefruit and sticky hops dominate the palate and nose in what is simply an EZ drinking and immensely enjoyable hop laden brew. Fantastic acid balance giving this concoction extreme drinkability. Served in a "proper" pint on scene you will simply love it!

This unfiltered beer comes in a golden hazy color.

The aroma has tons of citrus, some grassiness, and some breadiness.

The flavor follows with tons of orange hops, a bready mouthfeel, and pine. There's a good amount of drying on the end.

The finish definitely has that breadiness and grain flavor that makes it a lager instead of an ale.

However, the unfiltered lager aspect with this along with the tons of citrus hops really makes this hoppy lager a drinkable and really enjoyable beer.

I generally do not gush about pale ales. I tend to like good ones as much as the next guy, but this one was particularly good and I had a few of them in a session. The aroma is floral hoppy, with a very nice finish of Mt. Hood hops which lend an astringent, earthy hop character to the mix. I also blended the hop common with another peekskill pale; "wake up call" on a 3/4 to 1/4 basis (favoring the Hop Common) ....excellent as a blend as well.

Had on tap at blind tiger- pours a clear golden color, with an inch and a half if bubbly head, decent retention, minimal lacing.

Smell is mild- slight aroma of citrus hops and light grains.

Taste is excellent- citrus hops, light grain profile, very refreshing.

Mouthfeel is great- light to medium body with moderate carbonation. This one is definitely a keeper and an excellent example of the style.

Enjoyed in a pint glass.

A: pours a nice light amber color that pour with a nice finger and a Hal head that is an off white color. When head dissipates leaves light lacing.

S: fairly weak on the nose, mostly a slight pine hop aroma with a slight sweet malt aroma as well.

T: taste is of strong piney hops, also has a very nice sweet roasted malt on the top of the palate.

M: nice carbonation with a nice full body. Starts off semi sweet and roasty. And finishes kind of bitter.

Overall, this is a significant improvement from the old hop common. Very easy to drink, pairs great with wings.

I initially thought this was an IPA (that good a nose on this one, nice and hoppy), but the bar tender told me it was steam lager modeled after Anchor Steam.

Yes siree, I could do with a sixer or two of this one. Great to see something different from a brew-pub. I believe Peekskill Brewery is relatively new, but they've got some tastee brews over there. This may be my favorite yet.

Light golden colored with a small off white head.

Aromas of toffee, cereal, biscuit, and earthy and piney hops.

Nose just like the taste. Great balance juicy hops in the middle very piney and grassy. Cereal malts a bit sweet on the finish with moderate carbonation leaving a great mouthfeel. Silky smooth.

Poured a deep copper hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light toasted malts accompanied by a grassy hop.

The taste was very well balanced with a round caramel malt and a cleansing bright grassy hop.

The mouthfeel was clean with a dry finish.

Overall a tasty well balanced ale. Very sessionable.
