Notes: Originally brewed in celebration of the first anniversary of Row 34, our favorite Fort Point oyster bar and craft-beer purveyor, Vicinity highlights a neighborhood collaboration of passion and vision. The beer's appearance is a yellow straw-color, with a significant haze. Heavy citrus aromas of pineapple, orange flesh and mango dance on the nose and palate. The pilsner malt provides a medium body and wraps up each sip with a slight balancing bitterness.

MALT: Pilsner, Flaked Wheat, C-15

HOPS: Galaxy, Citra, Columbus

Canned 09/23/20. Pours a hazy yellow, with some light white foam. Strong, fruity smell of tropical fruits, peach and mango. Smooth mouthfeel, could be a bit thicker. Taste is fruity, hoppy, and ends fairly bitter. Mango, melon rind, some resin? Not bad!

Very hazy yellow, little white head.
Guava, riped fruits, citrus, a bit of weed, a bit of alcohol, peach.
The taste follows, a real fruit juice with a strong hop presence, almost hop burn. Some wheat notes.
Low carbonation
Very nice double neipa even though I'm not sure this is really better than some of the examples of the style we more easily find on this side of the Atlantic (Verdant, Cloudwater, etc.)

Poured from a can dated 9/23/20 into a tulip glass. Pours a thick orange-yellow color with minimal head and some lacing (could be due to a gentle pour). Big scents of orange pulp, pineapple, mango. Really juicy flavors of citrus (orange, kumquat) and the finish is reminiscent of some sort of boba tea concoction I got in Chinatown once, maybe the tapioca pearls. Really pleasant lingering bitterness and hop oils on the palate.

Excellent cloudy bright yellow body; head is very thin and wispy, lasting with a bit of foamy fingers clinging to the glass. Beautiful aroma of freshly squeezed orange juice. The taste brings an outstanding presence of biscuit and light bread crust base with subtle citrus highlight; rather mild orange; strong yet balanced bitterness; some boozy notes; lemon bread. heavy body; creamy; some appreciable alcohol heat; dry mouthfeel overall, deftly counterbalanced with soft background of sweetness.

My can was packaged 04/28/20. I don't know if a fuller head would normally be expected from this beer, but if that is all I have to gripe about, well, it's not much to worry about in the grand scheme of beer tasting. The balance, depth, and complexity of the beer is otherwise phenomenal.

You know i pounded 7 of these and I did not even yak. Had a killer hangover, but luckily I had one left and that helped with the shakes. Mind you, I am a 300 pound former NFL lineman so I know how to put them back. Overall, I would say very crushable and I would recommend.

***By Far, The Best IPA I have Ever had in my Entire Life***
I've consumed 1000s of IPAs from all over the world. It's been a hobby. My brother sent me this Vicinity and I'm hooked. Trying to get Trilium to ship to Naples FL.
