No canning date but Proclamation posted the release on Instagram on 6/6/18, so probably thereabouts... Pale gold and hazed to opacity under a thick finger of white foam... This iteration is single hopped, per the new can label, which says nothing about dry hopping (nor does their Instagram page, but I don't know if it is or not)... A NE take on Galaxy, smooth and juicy fruity, but with a dry edge that keeps things sharp... ample citrus tingle, suggesting grapefruit juice and orange pith, maybe a bit of lime, and a gentle passion fruit-like undertone... smooth soft, mildly bitter, mildly sweet... Very nice...

Proclamation suffers from one major handicap and that it's state of origin's reputation as backward, insular and tax mongering. But outsiders usually get it wrong. Pound for Pound, Rhode Island is one of the strongest craft-producing state's right now with the likes of Whaler's, Foolproof, Tilted Barn and Shaidzon. At the top of the firmament is Proclamation. Their main focus is pale ales and to that end they lay waste to the majority of competitors near and far. The Derivative: Galaxy is as flavorful, balanced and refreshing as any beer made in the past 10 years. The same can be said of all it's siblings. Just wonderful stuff.

A: Pours a hazy orange-yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves lots of lacing

S: Lots of citrus and tropical fruit notes up front along with some light malt

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and tropical fruit notes and then goes into some malt and yeasty notes. Very light bitterness. Finishes with lingering citrus notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A great single-hopped pale ale that drips with the galaxy hops. Extremely easy to drink and super refreshing. Definitely a must-try

Not very different from the avalanche of hazy beers being produced these days. Indistinguishable from many others. The price, $7 for 10oz pour is not justifiable given the number of much more flavorable beers available. Pass on this one unless you happen to visit the brewery.
