This poured out as a nice golden color with a white head on top. The smell of the beer has a very nice hoppy aroma. The taste of the beer is fruity with some subtle bitterness in the finish. The feel is very drinkable. Overall it's a very good Pale Ale.

A: The beer is slightly hazy in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface and a coating of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of passionfruit are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, except that the passionfruit flavors are a little stronger, and these strengthen some more as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and perfectly sessionable.

Serving type: can

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.

From 10/31/14 notes. Had a 16oz pour of this in a pint glass for $5 at Alewife...gott alove that happy hour deal.

Pours a deep amber-yellow color with one inch of bright white fluffy head and moderate carbonation evident. Super hoppy nose, citrus, grains, wheat, bready malts, floral hops, and tropical notes. Taste has more pineapple and tropical fruits, stone fruits.Medium body and low to moderate carbonation.

Overall I thought this was awesome; can't believe the ABV is only 4.7%. Not the hoppiest beer in the world but hoppy for an APA and for the low ABV especially; I would drink this all the time if I could. Highly recommended.

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.

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.

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.
