Notes: A true classic, our IPA holds nothing back. Packed with Citra and Simcoe hops from the Pacific Northwest and just enough malt for balance. Keep cold, drink fresh, and share with friends.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a relatively clear golden color with a one finger head; decent retention and clumps of lacing

Smell: West Coast citrus and pine tones with a light touch of caramel underpinning

Taste: A bit of caramel sweetness on the front end with the citrus and pine emerging to dominate; moderate bitterness, from the middle to the finish with just a hint of aspirin

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: A nice straightforward IPA in the West Coast style

Always on tap at a few local bars.
Good looking glass, clear golden amber with steady carbonation and a firm, white head that hangs in every time.
Aromas of pine and spruce, candied tangerines and cracked grain. Eastern Standard screams West Coast style.
The flavor is balanced and delicious - great blend of malt toffee and fruity, earthy hop with a tangy, grassy bite mid swallow through the finish.
Medium body, terrific balance and malt character, complex hop notes of conifer and citrus with a moderate abv and long, satisfying hoppy aftertaste.
This is one of my area of NY's best straight up IPA's IMHO and very awesome to see it and other local beers becoming so popular even in 1/2 filled bars.

On tap at Peekskill Brewery, Peekskill NY.

Pours a lightly cloudy golden orange color and a moderate foam head.

Bright citrusy and floral aromas dominate the nose alongside a hint of bready grain. Fruity aromas of peach and apricot compliment things.

Nice easy going but assertive bitterness all around. Pithy citrusy flavors of grapefruit rind play off of grassy, floral and piney spices; very West Coast like. Flavors of peach, apricot, freshly squeezed orange juice and crisp cracker malts round things out. Dry and resiny finish with a nice bitterness. Medium bodied, semi crisp and moderately carbonated.

An old school IPA that is nothing less than all around. It is pretty damn tasty and quaffable to boot.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) can into a conical pint glass; canned 06/15/18 and purchased at the brewery.
A: Pours a cloudy, dark goldencolor with limited head formation leaving a one to two finger, chiffon head with patchy retention but rings of lacing.
S: Aromas of white grapefruit, pitted fruits and mango mix with subtle grain and grassy notes.
T: More semisweet than semidry. Definitely citrus and resiny flavors predominate over the light and caramel malts. Light bitterness.
M: Light to medium bodied with moderate, albeit persistent carbonation. Slick on the palate.
O: This is a light, refreshing IPA, more on the “Mid-Atlantic” style, but with very strong, but balanced bitterness. Very enjoyable.

16oz tallboy can received from BeerloserLI and his NBS BIF box. I think this is the last beer from it, but I thought that about the last one a couple weeks ago. Canned on February 28, 2018, so hopefully it's still holding up.

Great looking beer. Initially a clear shade of lemony gold, it took on a slight chill haze shortly thereafter. HUGE, creamy, fluffy, almost ice cream-like looking eggshell-white head. It took it's time dropping and left lots of lace.

Lemony and herbally bitter hop nose, with a whiff of cracker-like malt.

A bit more complex hop flavor in the taste than in the nose. It's still bitter and hetbal, but with a bit more citrusy depth to it. It remains pithy throughout and finishes with a dry zap.

Medium bodied with a slightly crisp yet resiny mouthfeel.

Definitely not a NE IPA, this is a bit more sharp on the palate, but I'm okay with that, as it's the type of IPA I've been drinking for a long time. More herbal than a lot of PNW IPAs, it's got enough citrus flavor to balance it out. I don't think age has been much, if any, factor with this beer and would happily drink it again. Thanks, Brian.

Poured from a 16oz can into a speiglau ipa glass.

Look is a pale hazy yellow with a frothy white head.

Aroma is a nice light lemon with a biscuit malt undertone.

Tast is an explosion of hops, huge consentration of lemon and herbs hops.
