BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
trilliumbrewing.com

Style: New England IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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 on Aug/09.
Drank on Oct/12.
Poured to a BrewDog stemmed glass.

A: Body is a vibrant mix of yellow and orange that's totally opaque. Head is minimal, existing only when pouring.
S: There's tons of hoppy grassy tones with a citric base that's even hard to explain due to the intensity of the hop aroma. It's too prominent actually.
T: Taste starts off so sweet, having hints of vanilla, orange, tangerine, mango, peach, even a bit of milk can be felt here. After this genius mix of flavours the beer ends with a perfect grassy hoppy tone that's very solid.
M: Body is medium to high. Carbonation is perfect. Alcohol is unnoticed. Bitterness is high. Generally speaking, this mouthfeel is genius.
O: This is some of the best Trillium beers I've had so far.

Can. From Zombier. In Teku glass. Playing Avernum 5. Really strong frutality and bitterness, with some milkshake ipa reminiscences. Good but didnt live up the hype, as it is nothing that more accessible breweries cant do nor surpass

This is a great NEIPA. Departs from some of the standards but is still a great beer. I appreciate the level of bitterness as it balances the immense pineapple and papaya that the hops give off.

Two day old growlette poured into a tulip glass.

L: Pours murky white golden with less than 1 finger of quickly dissipating white head that left minimal spotted lacing.

S: Great nose, very tropical. Plenty of orange and mango, more subtle notes of passionfruit, pineapple and papaya.

T: Follows the nose to a large degree, but with more citrus prominence. Finishes with moderate bitterness and acidity, bitterness clears quickly while the acidity lingers. I liked that it wasn't crazy sweet juice.

F: Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation, lively on the tongue with some burn from the carbonation and acidity, slick on the swallow.

O: Loved the nose and taste, didn't feel this hit the normal creamy mouthfeel of a Trillium NEIPA. Liked the bitterness element, and would gladly repeat if given the opportunity.
