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!

The beer comes in a clear golden yellow color with foamy white head.

The aroma has almost a Citra aroma, but it's actually Galaxy, with its citrus and tropical fruit and passionfruit. This was lighter though and less full on the sweetness.

The flavor follows with crisp citrus and orange. It's actually a very hoppy beer. Like other extremely hopped beers, it's not really a bitterness or flavor. It's just pure hops that rolls around your mouth. It just rolls and rolls of hop juice character of a light tangerine, slight orange, pineapple.

There's a bit of crackery malt in there, but it really just stands out as mostly hops, juicy fruits with a slight bitterness on the end.

I was not sold on this beer the first few times having it. However, having it a bit past refrigerator/tap temperature, this beer really started the shine as the hop and fruit character came through. Highly recommend having this slightly warmer than cold.

This stands up with the best out there.
