BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Peekskill Brewery
New York, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our tribute to Willie…Shotgun Willie IPA’s aromas of cantaloupe and gooseberry come directly from New Zealand’s Nelson Sauvin Hops. Rye and wheat contribute to a distinct dry grain flavor. Pouring pale straw in color with full hop character, this is unlike any IPA you’ve had before.

DeCicco's growler fill

A: Darker than straw...goldenrod and luminesce. So clear your blind grandma could read a newspaper thru it. Had an overflowing pearl white head that had to be slurped, but disappeared before I could sit down. Really nice lacing though.

S: Really lovely, perfect southern hemisphere hop profile. Silky, sweet fruit notes of melon, green papaya,

M: It's been sitting in a swing top growler for 6 days...still the carb level is underwhelming; too creamy, too smooth for the hefty and weighty body that rye contributes.

T: So the rye seems to overwhelm the nuances contributed by the hops in my opinion making it a tad bland on the palate. Odd, considering the fuller body. Peppery spicing is predominant to me; white grape and slightly vinegary. Finishes nicely, thistly and dry. Slight citrus, lime zest, breadfruit. I fell teased, and wish it were juicier. This isn't necessarily
