look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed in a pint glass

A: Pours a light golden color with zero carbonation bubbles, has a thin white head that dissipates quickly, leaves spotty lacing on the glass
S: a slight citrus hop is present, other than that it is very clean
T: drinks with a slight tartness and nice citrus hop notes that are slightly toned down
M: medium carbonation tingle, drinks silky, has a dry finish
O: love the style and i find this one to be a nice representation of the style but would have liked to see some more head retention, taste was overall very pleasant

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Toasted orange and clear with a small white crown that shows a touch of retention and lace.

Smell: Toffee malts and a hint of bittering / floral hops.

Taste: Same as nose.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and light...my favorite aspect of this session brew.

Overall: I could have had more than one of these, especially in warm weather.

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.

A burnt orange color topped with a dense head of foam, Hop Common is definitely sessionable and pairs very well with the food on the menu at the brewpub. The first sip tasted woody and left lacing on my pint glass. Nicely carbonated and somewhat dry, this well balanced beer has a creamy mouthfeel and a hoppy finish. Regularly on tap and well executed, it's worth a try either on its own or along with some of Peekskill's other brews.

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.

A great drinking local brew. The beer was a looker. Nice dark copper color with solid lacing. It was a mix between an American IPA and a Cali Common. Good taste and decent mouthfeel. A solid mix between Anchor Steam and a traditional IPA. The pubs best offering.
