Getting back to Proclamation's most famed series, we have the mosaic hopped variant. I love mosaic hops, but usually in conjunction with other hops; I haven't had many mosaic single hop beers, and really none that have blown me away. Let's jump in

Pours a hazy radiant gold with 2 fingers of fluffy white head that slowly fades to a thin cap and leaves decent lacing

There's a subtle tart bite in the nose here that holds it all together. I'm picking up on aromas of fresh pine, orange juice, earthy pepper, tart lime, perfumey hops, light bready malt, and tangerine

Luckily, the tart character is present in the taste too, acting as a wash out after the swallow. On the front end of the sip I'm tasting orange rind, lime, caramel malt, and herbal hops. The swallow brings a rush of tart lime followed by aftertastes of orange rind, herbal hops, bready malt, and papaya

A light medium body pairs with moderate carbonation, resulting in zippy and sessionable beer. Finishes dry and lightly astringent

This was great, but not my favorite. I still wanna work my way through the series and see what gems it has to offer

16 oz can into IPA glass. No date.
Look is nice cloudy yellow. Smell is citrus, mango and a little spice. Taste follows nose with little pine at end. Feel is light to medium. Overall a nice single hop APA that I would drink again.

Def one of my least fav hops unless done correctly which is rare. Canned 3/16/18

Pours a mild fizzy head that fades semi slowly, a bit of lacing, murky orange color

Nose starts decent, citrus, little generic tropical, then the fun, or opposite of it begins, dank onion, garlic, earthy vegetable thing

Taste starts with note citrus, generic tropical, papaya, guava, etc, little tangerine, a little pith, creamy base malts and wheat, mild bitterness, thankfully very little onion garlic and pine, little soft creamy juicy, drier finish little bitterness, bit more pine and little oniony

Mouth is med bod, a bit soft creamy, decent carb

Overall there def was some sadness on the nose, thankfully much more muted in the taste, but still mosaic just sucks at life, there are so many better hops out there with the same good flavors and without the terrible

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

S: Citrus, grass, and some dank hop notes up front along with a touch of malt

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with some citrus and grassy hop notes and then gets more dank towards the finish. Malt balances the bitterness nicely. Finishes with lingering citrus and dank hop notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A great single-hopped pale ale that really rolls on all cylinders in terms of hop nose and flavor. Does a great job highlighting the mosaic hops as well. Super easy to drink. Definitely worth checking out

Finally got another batch distributed up to southern Maine... thanks Proclamation! Send more please!!

Pours a cloudy orange gold color with a one finger soapy head that laces finely but settles quickly to a film.

The aroma is fantastic on this one - a tangy pineapple and mango mashup that jumps right out.

The taste is similar with pineapple, orange and mango up front. Midway through a rush of semi-bitter grapefruit pulp passes across the tongue. It is a great transition and a bit unusual IMO. The bitterness stays tame and in the mid-background through to the finish along with a true "juice"-like lingering flavor, like you just swigged an orange-mango smoothie as a beer chaser. This is a very clean flavor profile in that there is nothing else intruding or throwing it off.

The feel is super soft, almost creamy thick, and lightly bitter and a little sticky on the lips.

This is a wow beer. I mean Proclamation just really understands the NEIPA style and has made an incredibly clean tasting beer just bursting with tropical fruit notes. I would consider this a type-beer for the style. Perhaps in my top 5 list. It gives a run for the money to compete with Treehouse's best.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours a hazy orange color with a finger of fluffy white head. The head leaves a ton of sticky lacing as it settles into a thin sheet.

The aroma is a bit faint, but brings notes of oranges and grapefruit, with some honeydew melon. Theres a fair bit of grainy malt on the back end.

The taste brings plenty of melon notes, as well as some berries and oranges. The bready malt is very present on the back, with a slightly dank and bitter finish.

The feel is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes dry and crisp.

Overall, a pretty good and well balanced pale ale. It's a solid representation of the mosaic hop and is quite drinkable despite the ABV.
