On tap at the brewpub.

Blonde and a little hazy, frothy white head up top. No, not the girl at the end of the bar; we're talking beer here, people!

First whiff of the aroma gets me excited. Juicy, citric hops settle themselves over a mild base of sweet grains. Fruity, floral, and pleasantly pungent. This aroma is neck-and-neck with the very best of the style. Wow.

Juicy, fruity, creamy hops bombard my palate. A kiss of sweet malty goodness shows up in the middle before being ushered away by more fresh, delicious hops. Not resinous or piney at all. Really tasty and imminently drinkable. Geez, this is dangerously close to Zombie Dust territory.

I was certain it was brewed with Citra hops from the smell alone and was stunned when the bartender revealed it was a single-hop Galaxy brew. Difficult to believe since I rarely enjoy Galaxy, but Benz really knew his stuff and I have no reason not to believe him.

Amazeballs lives up to its name. Still kicking myself for not bringing a growler home.

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.
