Peekskill Brewery Amazeballs canTake it from the Great Lakes, the Grand Canyon or Brilliant, Ohio—dropping superlatives into your name is a risky move, creating an expectation of excellence that’s tough to live up to.

But we can’t disagree with Peekskill dubbing this beer Amazeballs (which, as we all know, is a real word that was added to the Oxford Dictionary in 2014, so say it all you want).

Returning to shelves this month, the 4.7% American pale ale is bittered and flavored with just a single hop type: Galaxy, a very in-vogue variety hailing from Australia and known for imparting vivid tropical fruit flavors. Quiet, spicy cracked pepper and epazote mingle in the nose with menthol and herbs—the hop character is resinous and oily, like rubbing together fresh cones—supported by sweet baked bread.

Nutty, toasty malts lead the flavor into hoppy swirls of lavender, rose, peach blossom and peppermint tea; a flash of passion fruit at the swallow is wiped away by clean, floral bitterness. Get yourself to Peekskill, New York, (about 30 miles north of Manhattan), and try some. It’s, as the name suggests, amazeballs.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
