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.

3.49/5  rDev -18.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

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.
