On tap at Peekskill.

Golden orange pour, fairly hazy, with a thin collar of white bubbles; a few dots of lacing on the glass. In the nose, oily hops and sweet bready malts, with solventy undertones. The taste was malt-forward, way too sweet for the style, with some citrus oils present, but too dense and too overpowered by the malt profile. Some fusel flavors were also present, which came out more as the beer warmed. Mouthfeel was dense and chewy, body was medium. Kind of messy overall, and not very good for a DIPA.

Served on tap at their brewery.

Appearance is a light amber color with a thin white head, doesn`t look as nice as some of its` peers. The nose contains oranges, pine, hard cheese, some hops. For the taste, I came across grains, grapefruit, hay, malts. The taste is a little richer than I would have liked, but still nice. Mouthfeel was very good, especially for a beer nearing 9%. It is medium bodied, good carbonation level, finishes clean. All in all, a very good beer, but it did not strike the same impression for me as it seems to have with some other reviewers.
