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.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Fresh fruity and spicy hops, hints or grass and spicy rye, and light sweet malts. Much like the rest of the Peekskill IPA line, fresh, bright, and very drinkable.

On draft at PB - a rye IPA with Nelson Sauvin hops. Light color and a fresh sweet aroma. Full flavor, good balance, dry grain, rye, a little coriander, lime zest, grapefruIt. The flavor grows as it warms. Good.

Nice tropical Nelson aroma with a bit of rye backing the flavor. Faint spice and moderate bitterness.

Super fresh growler shared by Frank at his tasting in Manayunk. Pours slightly hazed golden color with thin white head and alright lacing. Notes are delicious and aromatic Nelson, fuck yeah. Other notes of tangerine, melon, resin, and fruity wheat. Med body. The nelson was perfectly balanced by the malt bill. Wow, Peekskill ipas are on the radar.

Drank at the Peekskill Brewery & Restaurant. Significantly dry and pale beer, but i great follow through flavor of rye and hops. Surprisingly light yellowish color, but smell and intense though not terribly complex.
