On tap at the brewery. Stopped in after the Stone event at RnH. Pours a hazed ruby with a thin white head. Big thick hops, loads of malt. Sweet, but huge hops. Big bitterness early on. Big thick mouthfeel. Not a style I usually like, but apart from the good batches of the vanilla bourbon stout they do, this was the best thing from Peekskill Brewery that I’ve had. Big and hoppy, nice and full. Finishes up with a big hoppy grapefruit and quinine bitterness. Good job.
