I don't know about "balls" at 5.2% but this beer has definitely got something. ...a douchey name for such an "amazing" beer. I've had it before and will have it again. This time it was a growler I took to go. After a 3 hr. ride home and a quick chill, it tasted great. Obviously, it didn't taste as crispy fresh as at the brewery the night before, but I did take a 1 hr. detour to pick some up . Clearly, it holds a special place in my heart. Medium/light straw hue. Foamy, finger head with strong lacing. Nice hoppy nose, and flavor to follow. Balanced taste, delicate citrus and just slight bitter end for a perfect finish. I love the new wave of full flavor light beers now. This is similar to Carton Boat Beer, but with a little more abv. yet superb balance. This is an awesome beer. If you're into the strong stuff this might not blow you away, but otherwise it's a must have.

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.

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!
