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

Pours a hazy light orange with a 3F fluffy head and heavy lacing.

Smells of slightly dank floral, grassy hops and citrus.

Tastes of grapefruit, orange, lemon and pineapple with a slightly bitter finish.

Medium light body with light carbonation. Smooth, lush mouthfeel.

This is a very tasty, very juicy but not too sweet, surprisingly light bodied, well made brew. Folks who don't like bitter should like this IPA.

Citra, Galaxy, Columbus

July 8 canning - 5 weeks at drinking.
A deep one: Citra citrus, pulpy Galaxy, and earthy Columbus. Well dank, too - sweaty with plenty of green onion (though not in a bad way) plus also some ganga twig.
NEIPA smoothness and esters underneath it all.
A bit hot, but a hefty, oily, serious NEIPA.

Power play.

Uncomfortably attracted to this beer - probably because it is quite different than many hoppy beers but the lasting acrid MF brings this beer rating down. Maybe a good beer to compliment a meal. 3.5

A - Ugly muddy yellow one finger rocky head that dissipates quickly. Decent lacing for what I consider a poor head and retention (+) 3.75

S - Resin and citrus. 3.5

T - Typical trillium intense resiny hoppiness. Hint of sweetness. Citrus but resin dominates. 4.0

MF - Medium body. Dry finish lasting on the palate. Acrid on the roof of the mouth. 3.25

(16 oz can, 05/27/22, gifted by my bro, who picked this up at the brewery 2 weeks ago... poured into my Trillium fat tulip)

L: dull banana colored liquid, haze and murk for days... clean glass, but the foam vanishes immediately, leaving it looking like banana nectar; of course, no collar or lace

S: mango rind, orange cremesicle, oat beard... excellent vibrancy and intensity

T: surprising degree of herbal, spicy bitterness, pinging and lingering, of course bolstered by booze... dried tropical fruits burst upon contact, then fall away to the sides... muddy, one note

F: delicately carbonated; silky, swift, and smooth... back end heat swell reminiscent of jalapeno jotness, which I'm kind of enjoying... it's otherwise flat and flaccid

O: this is ok, fairly standard, outside the hot booze in the background (1908)

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.
