This beer will blow your mind. Definitely my favorite beer, but I am not perfect, so I don't feel qualified to rate anything as perfect. I will say that the aroma is perfectly intoxicating, as is the taste. Whether they can translate this into bottles or cans remains to be seen.

On-tap at the brewpub

A bright orange body with a foamy yellowish cap. Some good retention with some clingy lace. Spider web lacing inside the glass.

Bright citrus and tropical fruit....but more former than latter. Grapefruit rind, oranges, mandarins with some guava and pineapple in the distance. Sturdy malt bill stands tall and lends a distinct sweetness underlying the fruity hops.

Sweet malts carry through with a hearty dose of fruity hops over top. Grapefruit, oranges, mango, with pineapple underneath. Sweet malts through the finish.

Medium body with a good amount of oil. A resiny, oily beer, but in smaller doses.

I'm not gonna lie, this stands tall with some of the elite IIPA's out there. I had Pliny the Younger 3 days prior and this stands the test as a double. Similar to PtY in many ways, but less intense and oily/resiny. This beer is really good. Seek it out.

Served on-tap at DeCicco`s.

Appearance is a cloudy, light golden tone with 1 finger of head. Its` nose has orange, pine, citrus hops; comes off as an inviting beer. Taking it back for a sip & I taste sourdough bread, tangerines, some sweetness and resin. Mouthfeel on this DIPA from Peekskill is a bit sticky, some bitterness in the finish. But it closes, leaving you, craving more of it. All things considered, a very nicely done beer, will have to make a trip to check out their expanded facility soon.

Couple quick fingers of beige foam leave behind slathery legs of lace overtop a cloudy and thick looking, gold-amber beer.

Grapefruit rind, mango, light pine resin, even lighter nectarine, with a neutral sweet beneath it.

It's a blast of flavors, citrus rind, pine resin, orange peel, lemon zest, some righteous herbal bitter backing to it, lightest sweet and even lighter floral lead the sip to a dankest and well bittered conclusion. Woaahhh.

HIghly viscous, it is chock full of resiny goodness, clean on the mouth, zippy carb., bone dry finish.

Deep hoppiness on a neutral backbone that frames it into a wonderful homage to the danker aspects of American overhopping goodness. Recommended highly for hardcore hopheads, lightweights need not apply

Thanks Keith! Pours a nice turbid yellow ale with some nice white foam. Nose is tropical! Mango, papaya, pine, oranges, nice nose. Hints of resin and sweet biscuity malts. This nose kinda has some of the notes I enjoy from heady Topper. Great nose here. Flavor is bitter with sweet malts and a bit of resin. There is a weird vinyl or plastic character in the finish, which isn't pleasant, but the beer tastes great while in my mouth, it's strictly on the breath back that I get that. Medium bodied and moderate carb. Nice beer, needs a little attention on the finish, but otherwise, this one has the potential to be a diamond in the rough. I know I will be looking forward to trying some more of Peekskill's goods.

The second beer of the evening.

Served in a 12 oz. snifter, it looked like it should but there was something off in the aroma, it had a musty nose, not something I would associate with a DIPA.

It was sort of flattish, not sure if they were going for a lower carbonation.

The taste was definitely subdued for a DIPA, not a west coast style at all but tame by comparison to Captain Lawrence just down the road.

This was a step in the right direction but it seemed that they didn't know what they wanted this beer to be.

the second brew I tried at Peekskill tonight. Chief can make some magic with hops, so the chance to see him pushing simcoe and citra to the forefront can't be missed

A- an ultra yellow/flourescent orange body with a rocky avalanche of white foam frosting floating all over the tulip. Lacing blasts and remains all over the sides of the glass

S- an elevated scent of piney resinous hops burst out of the glass with a superb tropical theme the star of the show with this scent profile. The smell is present the entire time the glass sits at the table. Very pungent and active throughout each twirl of the tulip

T- the expected explosion of piney hops bursting with citrus, pineapple, and mango flavor. There is a presence of caramel malt in the background as well. Very flavorful and hoppy as a DIPA should be. Also great bitterness on the exit

M- bitter and delicious on the palate

O- chief put out a great DIPA. Bitter, flavorful, and chock full of hops

Double IPA by way of Jeff O'Neal..yes yes things are looking up (way up) at Peekskill brewery, every since Jeff has started turning out high quality IPAs and now a DIPA just 7 miles from my house!

On tap at the bar/brewery, pour clouded medium tangarine amber, fluffy off white head, leaves ample stick on the glass.

Nose is all about fresh tangarines and sweet citic goodness.

More brite tangarine/orange notes on the palate, fruit, hops, fresh, flavorful and scrubbing the spice off of my palate (happy hour included a lite and tasty bite of oysters and deviled eggs)

Moderate peppery notes midway through and then a long, enjoyable spiced up and citric hop infused finish. Yum yum yum, think I will have another please.

Something very good is going on, hop lovers get to Peekskill brewery and give this high quality DIPA a try.
