New one from PB, 32 ounce growler filled at the brewery last night and being enjoyed about 24 hours later.

Pours clouded darker clemintine, heavily hazed/clouded. Lite tan head, fluffy then goes to a nice looking tiny bubble film, and nice looking extensive fields of sheeting/lace. Nice looking beer.

Fresh and pungent hopped up citric nose. Smells like you just stuck your nose in a fresh bag of sticky hops.

Hop lovers rejoice. Hop, hops and more hops oozing out of this one. Fresh and flavorful. Grapefruit, oranges, tropical fruits, mint, basil, all sorts of aromatics and hoppy goodness, without biting, overboard or off putting bitterness.

Very well done, brewing craftsmanship all over this creation. More high quality beer from Peekskill Brewery.

Go get some....Cheers!

One of the best East coast IPA's I have had. Almost ranks up there with my beloved Oregon Imperial IPA's. The flavor is excellent. This beer is bitter but has a full bodied slightly sweet flavor and smooth creamy texture to very nicely counter the bitterness. I could drink this all day. You are almost eating this beer. And it looks as full bodied as it is with a great golden color.

I can't believe this is a Triple IPA. It's so drinkable and goes down like a traditional single IPA.

Pours a dark orange on tap at the source. One inch of fluffy, aesthetically pleasing head. Lattice work lacing down the glass.

Smells brightly and outstandingly hoppy. Tons of fruits are most evident on the nose, orange and pineapple particularly, with some pine.

Tastes incredible. Citrusy and resinously piney, with an underlying dank, earthy hop flavor. Very little malt to speak of, which is fine, because it lets the hop speak as loud as they can. Lingering but minor hop bitterness at the end of each sip.

Medium bodied, well carbonated, and crisp. Somehow this beer is refreshing. I don't know how that's possible, given the amount of ingredients used and the ABV.

Peekskill Brewery needs to be more recognized. They are a force to be reckoned with in the Hudson Valley, and the best brewery in our fair state.

On draft at the brewery.

Poured a hazy bright brassy hue with a one and half finger frothy white head. There was very good retention and sticky lacing.

The smell featured balmy orange, pine and apricot aromas.

The flavor was certainly hop forward with waves of resinous pine and orange. A soft sweetness was detected as well.

The mouthfeel was full and smooth.

Overall an excellent user friendly DIPA.

Somehow managed to miss this at TAP NY, so we took a drive down to the brewery this weekend. Serving type was on tap in a tulip.

A: A beautiful slightly hazy, golden-orange color. Minimal head, with noticeable lacing.

S: HOPS! Tropical fruitiness, slight bitterness. Mostly juicy, citrusy delicious hops.

T: More pure hop awesomeness. Super juicy, hoppy goodness. Bit of breadiness, bit of bitterness. But mostly carries over from the nose. Decent malt backbone, but most definitely a "hops in your face" beer. Tropical fruit and citrus. Just fantastic.

M: Noticeable carbonation, somewhat medium bodied. Scarily drinkable.

Overall: One of the best Double (triple?) IPAs that I've had. If you enjoy a tropical fruit hop bomb, then this is a beer for you. Would put this up there with any of the big DIPAs. A definite "must have"
