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.

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 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.

On-tap at the brewpub

The body sits a bright orange, super clear, with some stray bubbles. The head was a soft white with clingy lace. Some thick spider web lacing on the glass.

Galaxy hops, oh how I love you. Waves of tropical fruit with a touch of pine. Mangoes, papaya, pineapple, and white grapefruit all over a firm bed of slightly sweet malt. A little bit of graininess poke through here and there.

Sweet, juicy tropical fruits coat the palate and slide off easily. Some sweet malt pops through the middle before a mix of sweet tropical fruitiness and mild bitterness in the finish. All of the same flavors as the nose. Pineapples and grapefruit with papaya, mango, and pine playing a supporting role.

Oily, resiny feel, but still fairly smooth.

Galaxy hops can really do no wrong. Big nose, fruity flavor with moderate bitterness, pretty delicious.

Growler filled @ the brewery yesterday, galaxy single hop APA

The beer pours a crystal clear, light golden amber color with a loose white head that sparsely laces and fades rather quickly to nothing. The nose is potently hoppy highlighting the lovely galaxy varietal with notes of grapefruit and a slight peachiness. This is a moderately bitter, juicy, balanced, mildly malty APA that puts the spotlight on the galaxy hop in a way I've only experienced with HF's double galaxy. The mouthfeel is mildly malty and sweet with a lingering, lightly drying/crisp tropical hoppiness. This is definitely a beer worth grabbing a growler of and more pints will ensue shortly!

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.
