Went to the old Peekskill brewpub last October and was blown away; I also hear great things about the new one that opened up down the block this past January. Peekskill started distributing to NYC in February, and the appearance of their beers on tap lists throughout the city has been a game-changer. In particular, their reception of the Governor’s Cup for best brewer in the State of New York this past weekend cemented how quickly they’ve risen to prominence.
Appearance: Stunning light orange.
Smell: Monster citrus aroma, instantly reminiscent of Zombie Dust and Susan, two of the finest beers I’ve ever had the good fortune of tasting. A wonderful, big, memorable smell for an APA.
Taste: The substantial aroma is more than backed up by huge citrus taste. Amazeballs is very likely the east coast’s answer to Zombie Dust, made all the more impressive by the fact that it checks in at a mere 5.2% ABV.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium-bodied, medium-carbonation.
Overall: This is a damn near-perfect APA. If Peekskill ever starts packaging, this beer could be New Yorkers’ opportunity to finally have a locally brewed trade target as desirable as ZD.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
