Peekskill Brewery "Aussie Slang"
16 fl. oz. can, coded "7/17/18 SNAPPER ROCKS"
$4.99 @ DeCicco & Sons, Brewster, NY

Notes via stream of consciousness: Ah, now I get the name, it's brewed from Aussie, and I'll assume New Zealand, hops. The label doesn't mention which ones but I'm sure it will be good. It's poured a very hazy body with colors of gold, orange, brass, and very light tan. The head is a two-finger thick cap of frothy white foam. In the nose it's fruity, resinous, and slightly floral over a basic, grainy malt base. There's lots of citrusy and tropical fruit there. On to the flavor... it's not as fruity as the aroma suggests but I'm getting notes of mango, pineapple, a hint of melon, peach, white grape, orange, and lemon zest as well as pine and earth. The malt remains basic, and somewhat biscuity. It finishes dry, bitter, and piney. It's pretty solidly bitter for an American pale ale but I'm guessing it's still to style. What's the alcohol on this? 5.8%? Yeah, this is one of those beers that straddles the pale ale and IPA categories, which is fine. It's got a nice hoppy burp to it. In the mouth it's medium bodied leaning toward medium-light, and crisp with a standard carbonation level. It's a solid APA/IPA that I'd gladly buy again. Worth trying.

Tall can

Pours lighter, near golden amber, with a slight haze. Supports a large and lasting off white cap.

Grainy, earthy and hoppy nose.

Pleasant and easy drinking pale, soft and smooth hops, dry and resiny finish.... nothing amazing, but better then decent...would work in a pinch

A: Pours a slightly hazy pale golden yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising quickly along the edges of the glass and faint honey colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense sudsy foamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a couple of medium sized patches of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Just shy of moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit, tropical/peach, and tropical/mango hops over the top of light aromas of biscuit + grainy malts.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + grainy malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit, tropical/peach, and tropical/mango hops which impart a slightly heavier than light amount of bitterness which lingers slightly leaving a fruity hoppiness in it's wake.

M: Light to medium bodied with slightly heavier than moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially crisp and effervescent.

O: This beer is very easy to drink and quite enjoyable with an interesting (and successful) combination of hop aromas + flavors.

A: The beer is relatively clear pale golden yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high bright white head that died down but never completely faded away and left lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of citrusy and tropical fruit hops are present in the nose along with strong notes of peaches.
T: The taste follows the smell, having a mix of flavors of peaches, citrus, and tropical fruits. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a very interesting mix of flavors. I really enjoyed the aromas and flavors of peaches, as these were very unique compared to most other APAs and IPAs.

More of a belgian yeast driven one. An ok beer but not particularly showcasing the hops, although the bitterness in finish was ok. Decent but not one i would activwly seek out again.
