Poured in to a tulip. Hazy, golden colored body. Fluffy, two finger, white head. Slightly over-carbed since the foam in the bottle was growing out of the top.
Aroma was very hoppy. Citrusy and floral. Good amount of acidic tartness along with some underlying barnyard funk. Smelled really nice.
Taste had a good amount of hop flavor upfront. Tropical, citrusy and a bit floral. Mild maltyness. A bit orangey/peppery, assuming from coriander and tangerines. Light oak flavor. Mildly acidic and tart.
Mouthfeel was medium body, medium/high carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall this was very enjoyable. Could definitely tell it was an IPA underneath the tartness.

750 mL gusher of a bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy and murky orange. Not much of a head. Thin collar.
Smell - Acidic. Very bretty. Hoppy too. Citrus and grapefruit. Musty.
Taste - Citrus hop, but gets tangy quickly. Lemony tang. Earthy brett is strong.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Bitter and mildly sour. Flavorful for its size.
Overall - Got tiresome after a while.

Cheers to SteveO for this one. Had a few Trinity beers prior to moving from the springs, this my first since move here...
Bottle 772 12/12, batch TBB 1-6 opens with a little gush, no big thang...
Pours a hazed amber with a thumb of egg shell colored head. Never totally clears, pretty nice head retention & below average lacing
S: Much sourness, citric & grassy notes
T: Sourness, a touch of grassyness, lemons & pineapples, plus tartness up front, so getting the tangerine rind, but also pineapple in spades. Earthy lemony/citric tartness, a bit of oakyness & pineapple as this warms, choke cherry here as well. Finishes tart with grapefruit, pineapple, a bit of white grape & honeysuckle & puckery, oaky sourness
MF: Medium bodied with delicate carbonation, plus some warming sensation
So easy to drink, wow a whole lot of flavor packed into a quaffable 4.1 abv package. This the greatness I recall from Jason on stops prior to Trinity! Classic American Wild ale, no real major flaws here only minor detractors

Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and light lacing notes. Aroma of light citrus and clementine notes is quiet refreshing. Taste is also dominated by citrus notes with some clementine notes which are very refreshing and light tangy and tart finish. Body is quite full with medium carbonation. I just took this out of the fridge without knowing exactly what I was about to drink but very good beer even though sour side is not that apparent.
