From 10/31/14 notes. Had a 16oz pour of this in a pint glass for $5 at Alewife...gott alove that happy hour deal.

Pours a deep amber-yellow color with one inch of bright white fluffy head and moderate carbonation evident. Super hoppy nose, citrus, grains, wheat, bready malts, floral hops, and tropical notes. Taste has more pineapple and tropical fruits, stone fruits.Medium body and low to moderate carbonation.

Overall I thought this was awesome; can't believe the ABV is only 4.7%. Not the hoppiest beer in the world but hoppy for an APA and for the low ABV especially; I would drink this all the time if I could. Highly recommended.

Poured mostly clear copper color with a good amount of bubbly white head. There is a good nose on this one with tons of fruit and a bit of malt on the back end. The flavor is really juicy and sweet with very little bitterness. The feel is a little above medium with a slight thickness and good carbonation. This is Outstanding!. I cannot believe this much flavor is coming out of 4.7%. All the flavor of a big east coast IPA that is super crushable.

My first brew from Peekskill and I must say I'm impressed. Not a hop/juice bomb at all but just a nice - smooth - tasty and easy to drink Ale. This much flavor with a low ABV is rare and enjoyable. I will def get this again.

Bottom of the can says "Ball Drop 12/27/16." If that's the born-on date, that makes this beer just 5 days old, as I'm drinking it on 1/1/17.

A: Poured from the can into a Duvel tulip. Slightly hazy dark golden body with a 1-finger white head. Body is more orangey when backlit. Some legs of lace cling to the glass after each sip.

S: Very nice nose jumps out of the glass upon the pour: citrus and tropical fruits. Big nose for such a "small" beer.

T: Modest foundation of crackery malt is followed by citrus - grapefruit and orange, and orange zest. Some sort of tropical fruit follows mid-palate; thinking mango. Finishes quite clean and dry, though with a lingering grapefruity bitterness on the aftertaste.

M: Light in heft, with a nice creamy carbonation - makes this a real easy drinker.

O: An excellent beer. A friend brought this over for NYE last night and I've already texted him to find out where he got it, because I'd like to drink this regularly if the price was right. . . .

On tap at Peekskill.

Hazy pour, copper color, with a finger or so of white head that sank to a thin layer, leaving a few strands of lace on the glass. Aroma was herbal with hints of underripe fruit, doughy malts. Flavor of green pineapple rind, leafy, quite bitter, with a good dose of bready, doughy malts. Light-medium body, mouthfeel was a bit thinned out. It was okay, but nothing really memorable.
