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.

Freshie growler filled @ the brewery yesterday, galaxy single hop APA ($16)

Pours hazed lighter almond amber, frothy off white head, leaves ungodly amounts of fine ass and nice looking sheeting.

Moderate nose of fruity hops.

Quality APA with tropical fruit notes running all through it. Pineapple juice, clementines, and fruity goodness. Light dough in evidence to provide the balance.

Easy drinking and super tasty. More world class beer from Peekskill Brewery, so glad I live only 10 minutes from this high quality beer production facility!

On tap at the brewpub both times I went.

Pours a light orange, golden color. Soft white head, about 1 inch. There's latticework-style lacing as I gulp this one down.

Smells incredible. Pure mango and pineapple puree. This is apparently single-hopped with Galaxy- this in an incredible solitary hop in brews.

The taste follows as expected. Intense juiciness with little bitterness. Basically pure hop juice. Slight tastes of sweet malt sometimes poke through, but the hop flavors, so fruity and juicy, push it away pretty quickly.

The mouthfeel is light, slightly fluffy, if you will. Slightly resiny, lightly carbonated.

Just one of the purest expressions of hops in a pale ale I've ever had. Just amazing.

On draft at the brewery.

Poured a light copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured clean piney hops and a light doughiness.

The taste offered waves of vibrant pine and citric hops supported by a grainy light caramel.

The mouthfeel was toward the cleaner side of the style.

Overall a very nice an quaffable APA.
