clear coffee note, not overwhelming, but discernible. hazy amber caramel color. it’s got a coffee soda-like flavor. the flavor makes me think "second runnings of peché mortal". it’s got nice coffee flavor, without any acrid or roast flavors. light body. quite good -- it was the favorite of the four PB beers we sampled.

Sampled at GABF 2013 as "Dream of the 90s". Amber and hazy with a beige head. Strong aroma of mostly coffee. Similar flavor with citrus and bitter hops balancing things out. Interesting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 9/20/13, as Dream of the 90’s (I think it is the same beer)
Aroma: The nose of this one is roasted malts/coffee and citrus hops
Appearance: It pours an unclear amber color with a small beige head and some lace
Flavor: The taste is roasty up-front, but it becomes more bitter and hoppy in the end palate
Palate: This one has a clean mouthfeel, medium feel, smooth on the mouth, and a little dry
This was an enjoyable beer. I thought this mix of the components worked nicely to compliment one another, and the underlying beer came off as nicely made. I might be a bit of a broken record here, but another very nice one from my trip to Peekskill.

On tap at PB, where it was called Dream of the 90s. This is my first coffee IPA. The idea did not initially grab me, but this turned out to be a fine brew. The aroma is juicy. The light coffee flavor blends nicely with the hops and a bit of lemon peel and Turkish coffee. Really good.

Draft atte brewery with Andrew and Brian. Pours a clear amber body with thick off white lacing. Aroma is nice soft coffee notes and light hop. Interesting, not sure it would work in the flavor - bib it does. Mouthfeel is perfect with notes of rich, coffee, sweet roast and juicy citrus hop.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Moderate coffee in the aroma. Flavor adds some earthy bitterness and a bit of medium roast coffee. Interesting and well done.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish hue to the pour; looks kinda like a scotch ale. Aroma is an in-your-face blast of coffee. Fresh, roasty coffee. How the hell is this possible?
Close your eyes and plug your nose, then take a sip. Pure hoppy goodness with a hint of coffee beans in the back. Each is well rounded, but the full sensory experience is unique and remarkable.
Creative as hell, and very well executed. Peekskill is rocking my world, can't wait til they distribute to NYC regularly!
