Thanks Keith! Pours a nice turbid yellow ale with some nice white foam. Nose is tropical! Mango, papaya, pine, oranges, nice nose. Hints of resin and sweet biscuity malts. This nose kinda has some of the notes I enjoy from heady Topper. Great nose here. Flavor is bitter with sweet malts and a bit of resin. There is a weird vinyl or plastic character in the finish, which isn’t pleasant, but the beer tastes great while in my mouth, it’s strictly on the breath back that I get that. Medium bodied and moderate carb. Nice beer, needs a little attention on the finish, but otherwise, this one has the potential to be a diamond in the rough. I know I will be looking forward to trying some more of Peekskill’s goods.

Growler shared at Berliner Bash, poured a dark golden orange color with aromas of tropical fruits, more citrus, and some light vanilla. Flavors were all citrus, thirst quenching citrus. Thanks for brining the growler.

Growler shared by J-Dad. Pours gold with a thin white head. Fruity hops, not quite tropical, lighter sweet grassy notes, floral notes, lightly sweet and pale malts, and a medium bitter finish. Good stuff, very drinkable.

Draft, via growler. Pretty intense hop and boozy aroma. Boozy, sharp bitterness. Slight butter, pretty intense.

Heavy tropical notes. More Citra forward than the single. A bit less Simcoe. Body moderately light with hefty bitterness.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2016 Growler @ Franks place, pours hazy golden-orange with light snow white lacing. Aromas and flavor are unreal....pineapple, grapefruit, toasted malt, light vanilla, cheese, mango, and pine. Lightly bitter finish with an ultra creamy mouth. Everything works perfectly together: balanced, sessionable, and world class as far as ipa’s go. We drank this next to Society and Solitude 6. Surprised that is held its own, honestly might have been better. So fucking juiced out yo. Tried again and was really disappointed. Seems the quality of this brewer fell off fast.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 Growler at franks. Pours a bright hazy orange body with light white lacing. Aroma is super fresh, juicy oranges and light funk. Mouthfeel is medium, perfect feel with notes of fresh citrus fruit, maybe some tropical fruits in the back with light bitterness and a creamy funkiness.

In short: A big tasty, fruity, nourishing and refreshing blond IPA. Superior example of the style
How: Tap at Tap-NY 2012
The look: Cloudy pale-bond body topped by a persistent small white head
In long: Nose is intense tropical fruits and notes of cat urine, most likely a heavy use of Citra. Taste is full body, soft but dense bready malts, tasty doughy sweetness on the attack, then plenty resinous tropical fruity hops, heavily dry-hopped, lots of hops essence, bitterness of medium intensity, a bit sticky but still very refreshing. Lovely example of this new trend of aromatic heavily dry-hopped American blond IPA. If you’re opposed to child pornography but are currently enjoying a great blond Double IPA at The Peekskill brewpub, then I honestly think you have Double Standard.
