On-tap at Dive Bar in Worcester. Cloudier and creamier than your usual NEIPA. Dry but juicy, this one is full of tropical fruits like mango and papaya, which is why it has that dry feel. Like most of this style, this is juice. Hop juice with some tasty fruit. Bonkers.

16-oz. can poured moderately into a 20-oz. mug for a short live finger sized off white head with a sticky ring of lace. Opaque, turbid yellow-gold color appears yellow in front of light.
Fresh hops hit the nose with citrus juice and pale malt.
Taste follows with a citrus hop bitterness, a semi-sweet citrus juice middle with appropriate maltiness and baking spice followed by a quick drying finish with a peppery bite.
A mildly bitter and peppery aftertaste lingers a few minutes.
Medium light bodied with average carbonation in reserve, balanced well between sweet juicyness and hop bitterness.
Looks and smells like an IPA, the taste and feel are clearly APA. If there was a New England Pale Ale category this would be at the top. A haze bomb that redeems its self.

A: The beer is hazy to cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a short head covering the surface and some lacing down the bottom edges of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of passionfruit are present in the nose along with hints of peaches.
T: The taste has lots of flavors of passionfruit and citrusy hops. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and very juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a very dense and juicy mouthfeel and packed with lots of citrusy and tropical flavors.

Catching up on some notes
16oz can shared by Dave, thanks for the hookup.
Hazy faint golden grapefruit color with a decent bubbly white head. Rich tropical fruity hoppy aroma and flavor. Very nice.

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
