Thanks to wethorseblanket for sharing this one at Tieman's tasting.

Bottle # 159/12.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a slight wood flavor on the finish. There is an alcohol kick and a medium hop bitterness with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great aromas and flavors.

Thanks to Scott for sending a growler of this to me. These Trinity beers can be tough to track down.

A: The beer pours a burnt orange color with a couple fingers of white head and some nice lacing.

S: A really dank hop aroma. Intense floral and citrus hops with a really oily pine note. Good grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, and pineapple with a mild bread note and some toasted malts underneath.

T: Really resinous and oily pine provides a rather intense bitterness. Lots of citrus fruits too, primarily grapefruit and tangerine, but there is a nice floral quality to it as well as a touch of grass.

M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation.

O: So many different hop characteristics here that none of them really dominated. Pretty solid stuff.

this is a monster, and in many ways reminds me of the centennial ipa from founders. I think the hop profile is about identical, particularly in the nose and in the first half of the flavor experience. its that fresh milled two by four complexion that is unique to the centennial hop, and although I cant confirm it factually, my taste buds tell me that's whats going on here. the pour is hazy and golden, with a sexy and lasting white head that's wispy and spirited. the wood and bitter is intense in both the nose and taste, and I cant find the alcohol at all, which is just bonkers for a beer this size. it claims 125 ibus, and im not arguing. the hops taste super fresh, not freakishly complex, but neat and clean in the way only a huge ipa can be when it tries to act like a lager. this rises to the challenge, and the cooking carbonation really helps it be an easy drinking 750ml of strong ale. I hate the price, but I love the beer. probably one of the more enjoyable india pale ales ive had lately, and trust me there have been some dandys. this is memorable in every way, including the label. its been so long now since I had Emma's coffin, but this might be trinitys best beer going these days. the swingline was fantastic as well, but this is a perfect ipa in so many ways. freshness is everything, and this nails it.

Thanks to Smoked for gifting me with this. 750ml bottle dipped in a thin layering of what looks like brittle candle wax. Bottle/batch# 925-11. Split with a couple friends.

Poured into a cervoise, this brew appears a clear orange color with a finger of white head. The cap fades slowly leaving fingers of lacing. A light yellow clarity is seen around the edges.

The smell of this brew is bright with hints of grapefruit. Some stinging fusel alcohol is underneath accenting a more fruity to floral aspect. Quite bright and citrusy. As it warms it gets a little grassy with light notesnof sulfur.

The taste is grapefruit, both pulp and rinds. A toasty underlying caramel malt inclusion provides a mild contrasting sweetness. This is a crisp brew for 10% with a seemingly candy-like sugar dryness. The bitterness is bitty at times but fitting for the style. The aftertaste is grassy with a light green yeast aspect that comes out as it warms.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. Fairly easy drinking for 10% with a crisp to refreshing finish that is very noteworthy for this big of a brew. Very well done. I still think the idea of wax dipping a DIPA is odd but whatever, this one was fresh and very enjoyable.

A brownish ruby pour with a dense head gave promise of a wonderful beer. The head faded a bit to leave a nice lacing.

Aroma was fairly balanced between sweet, caramel malt and piney hops. Some citrus notes are hidden in the background. This is a hop-full beer.

Hops seem to fight over one another for attention. It's a weird mix of pine, citrus, orange zest, resin and grass. None are dominant and the caramel finish seems to trump them all.

Feel was a bit light given the plethora of hops used. Is this bad? I don't think so, but not as biting as other 2xipa's .
Good drinking. It didn't last long...

Growler shared by womencantsail, thanks Andrew.

A: Translucent orange with a frothy white head.

S: Nice tangerine presence with notes of orange, grapefruit, and resinous pine (strong). Malt is bready with some caramel and helps to balance the hops. Some floral notes and a touch of alcohol.

T: Orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pine, and caramel. Malt provides balance. Lower moderate bitterness with well hidden booze.

M: Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky and dry.

Overall: This was good stuff. A little maltier than I like my Double IPAs, but enjoyable nonetheless.

A: Pours a hazed burnt orange color. A large, rocky white head forms that gently recedes. Some lace is left behind.
S: Big pine, and resinous hops up front. Bitter grapefruit rind, burnt and caramelized sugars. Lingering, nondescript bitterness last forever.
T: Like the nose, big piny hops. Very resinous and bitter. Grapefruit rind, burnt caramel sugars and lingering bitterness that lasts all day.
M/D: A full, chewy, and resinous body. Big bitterness and big alcohol. This is not something I particularly want to come back to.

Yep, this succeeds in what it tries to be. Which is a huge IPA. Not something I am a big fan of though. For me, nice to try once. That is it.

On tap at Hops and Pie. I was glad to try this on tap because I suspected it wasn't worth the $17 they are asking for a bottle and it wasn't. Shocking. Dark orange color but not amber. good lacing and head. Aroma is indeed hoppy, pine, ok. Flavor is also hoppy but there is a malt component vying with the hops and this ain't no West Coast as far as I can tell. Is this a super hoppy IPA? Yes. Is it as good as something from the West Coast? No. The fact they charge $17 for a bottle of this is insulting.

750 ml bottle, bottle number 198/12 (I think). Pours hazy copper orange with a monstrous rocky off-white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is big sugary tropical fruits with some dank hops and pine.

The flavor is sweet tropical fruits with a lot of piney dank bitterness. There's a bit of warming from the alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, an excellent DIPA. Slightly too sweet and alcoholic (and pricey at $17 a bottle).

Pours a rich cedar with a silky beige head and nice lace.

Nose has fresh floral and piney hops, caramel and fruity malts.

Taste has bitter, resiny hops up front and through the finish. Well balanced by sweet bready malts.

Medium body has a soft carbonation. Very nice IPA. Reminds me of the DIPA that Bristol use to make.

***Note to Trinity***
When I pay $5 for a beer, I expect to be served more than a 6oz cognac snifter. I don't care how many hops you put in it. That is some fruggle ass shit.

You guys need to stop being so stingy and serve proper servings of your beer. For, $5 I can go to the store and get a fresh 500ml bottle of Pliny. I'd like to continue giving you my support, but put your beer in a real glass.
