On-tap at The Jeffrey, New York, NY

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Moderately strong aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is very citrusy and has associated flavors of oranges and grapefruits along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very citrusy but is easy to drink because it doesn't have the strong bitterness commonly associated with other IPAs that have this type of flavor profile.

Served on-tap at The Jeffrey Craft Beer and Bites in New York, NY

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium yellow in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some hints of golden yellow highlights. The beer had a quarter finger tall fizzy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a thin film evenly covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of hops - floral the strongest followed citrus/grapefruit. There a light notes of caramel and honey sweetness to the malts.

T: The beer starts out with light flavors of sweet caramel malts with just a touch of honey that is quickly followed by the moderate to strong flavors of the hops - citrus/grapefruit and floral. There are light amounts of bitterness which do not linger for long.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Extremely easy to drink and has wonderful flavors and aromas from the hops without any overly aggressive amounts of bitterness. Very enjoyable and reminds me a ton of Ithaca Flower Power.

On tap at Peekskill.

Pale yellow pour, slightly hazy, with a thin white head that retained as a ringlet, lacing the glass slightly. Aroma was almost non-existent, slight notes of citrus pith, but nothing else. Not a good sign from an IPA on tap at the source. The taste was herbal, with some pithy bitterness, and largely bland, with a thin pale malt sweetness. Light-medium body, crisp mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Not a whole lot here that I found enjoyable...pretty weak for an IPA.

From 04/15/13 notes.

a - Pours a hazy golden orange color with two inches of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident,

s - Smells of tropical fruits, citrus hops, grapefruit, lemon, floral hops, citra, fruity malts, and some earthy notes. Super hoppy and fresh nose; really an awesome mix of tropical fruits and hops. Loving it.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, lemon, grapefruit, oranges, tropical fruits, fruity malts, floral hops, lightly bitter hops, herbal notes. Not too bitter; not quite as great as the nose but still really good.

m - Medium body and low ot moderate carbonation. Light bitter bite but not much at all.

o - Overall a really great IPA; nose is great and full of fresh hops and tropical fruits. Easy to drink; one of the better east coast IPA's I've had (especially not from Vermont). Have heard good things about Peekskill and their first beer impressed me a lot. Looking forward to having more of their beers.

Draft at Valhalla in NYC.

Copper / golden apricot body with a quarter inch of white, soapy head. Resinous pine with a touch of grapefruit leads the way, followed by a robust malt body. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Solid.

Whew! This is an IPA! Strong pine and salty tones. Lots of resin. The hop bitterness just attacks your tongue. Intense, thorough, unrelenting. This is a hop head's wet dream. Carbonation is high and biting. Sip and savor this one. And FYI - the brewery doesn't wan't growlers being filled of any of their beers, apparently? At least, that is what I was told where I got this one.

Freshie Growler filled at the brewery. Gotta love fresh and local high quality growler fills!

Pours medium apricot, lightly hazed, quality look to the retententive fluffy head, tiny bubble film and leaves ungodly amounts of fine sheeting and lace, from the collar to damn near the top of the glass. Nice looking brew.

Floral and tropical fruity hop nose. Yum

Nose carries through onto the palate with more tropical fruity goodness. Waves of satisfying hoppyness, but not at all bitter. Simply delicious IPA, with fresh hop notes that will tantilize the senses and put a smile on the face of good beer lovers.

Something real good is going on at Peekskill brewery as they settle into their new brew house and begin to put out more highly enjoyable brews like this one.

Glad I got an extra growler!
