Another winner from Proclamation. Slightly hazy yellow-orange color. Big head that dissipates to leave nice lacing. Smell is big grassy-ness with some citrus. Taste is strong grassy & weedy with a bit of pine and a little orange flavor. Light feel & easy to drink. I think I like the juiciness of The Stalk better but this is excellent nonetheless.

Look: Hazy golden amber with a thick sticky head. Smell: Big fresh juicy citrus hops, grassy hops, more citrus, a bit heavy and boozy, sticky and sweet. Dank.

Taste: A big bite of fresh apricot and pineapple followed by peaches and a grassy earthy hop that flows in to bring the sticky sweet malt as the peach notes linger. Delicious.

Mouthfeel: Chewy and resinous. It's a big beer and sits big on the tongue. Finish is sticky but not cloying with a slight booze warm on the finish.

Overall: Another killer brew from this team. It's big and sticky but those beautiful hops notes truly shine through and put this brew over the edge. The booze could be dialed in a bit more but this is their first batch on a new system and for me it competes with the big boys in Vermont and blows away brewers with much bigger systems. Rhode Island we have a gem here. Do the right thing. Drink local.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a small white head. Leaves minimal lacing.

Aroma is earthy and lightly citrusy. Some grass.

Taste follows the nose. Lots of sweet citrus up front followed by some earthy flavors. A bit grassy and lightly piney. Also slightly musty.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. This beer has the dryest finish I've ever had. Leaves my mouth dryer than grandma's panties.

Overall a pretty solid beer. Has a nice flavor and aroma.

Whoa.
RI brewery finally makes a pretty solid IPA?

A: Yellow/OJ/Tangerine color. Mostly clear, but a slight persistant haze (hops or chill?)

S: Obvious citrus, grapefruit/OJ, touch of tropical maybe.

T: Nice body for an IPA with a touch of sweetness without being bone dry or going too far into the sweet realm. Decent bitterness/balance without ripping my face off. Good hop flavor. Seems like a pretty oldschool hop bill (Cascade/Cent?) with maybe something else going on? (citra, amarillo or galaxy or something?)

M: Again, enough body and mouthfeel to hold it up. Not too dry and definitely not too sweet. Solid.

O- Looking forward to seeing more from this brewery. Definitely getting my attention with their first offering.
