From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Southern Tier Help! On The Way!

This is an 8.5% American DIPA.  Written on the can: " Turn the
can upside down before opening for increased hazy appeal."  I
evaluated it on tap and it was only minimally hazy.  It opens with
a nose of Aromas of mangoes, peach, pear, and pineapple.
Flavors are apricot, grapefruit, orange, lemon, melon, and overripe
fruit.  Light bitter finish.  Much better and real NEIPAs out there.

Overall Rating: Above Average
SweetWater G-13 / 420 Series

Sweetwater has taken a new hop G13 and married it with terpenes
and natural hemp flavors. The result is an interesting 6% American
IPA.  It opens with aromas of canned, tropical fruit, white bread and
wet dankness. Flavors are  guava, grassy hops, grainy bread crust,
and  earthy dankness. The finish is dry with notes of tangerine and
mango.  Too much emphasis on weed notes for my taste.

Overall: Average
Having sampled over 7,000 different beers in my
capacity as a fully certified taster I can promise
honest, thoughtful, and careful evaluations.  However,
remember that these reviews are totally subjective.  
Consider this column an informative resource only.  
The bottom line is to trust your own judgment and
keep drinking!

Proclamation Derivative Galaxy

This is an American Pale Ale at 6% ABV. Lots
of citrus and tropical fruit notes on the nose
along with some light malt.  Taste follows
the aromas more juicy fruit notes featuring a
sharp citrus edge of grapefruit, orange  
lime, and passion fruit.  Mild bitter finish.
Easy to drink and refreshing.  One of the
better pale ales on the market.  Well done.

Overall Rating: Outstanding
