50cl crowler from Brewdog Glasgow (£6.15):
Medium amber, fairly clear & topped with a foamy white head that leaves some lacing on the sides & has good retention. It's strong & hoppy on the nose with some alcohol, pine & dank tropical fruits plus some citrus. The taste is similar with lots of tropical hops, citrus & pine then some grapefruit & hop oils to finish. There is a strong alcohol backing throughout & it's quite warming with moderate carbonation & a very dry, bitter finish.

Canned 03/14/19.

Nice hazy yellow pour, large amounts of sticky white head that settles slowly back into the beer. Heavy lace retention that falls in layers.

Mild tropical fruits, namely pineapple. Predominance of citrus, pithy but also with a residual sweetness that compliments an underlying malt and floral hop presence. Well rounded, subtly complex.

A re-emergence of citrusy goodness, only this time with a bit more malt and melon with a lingering piney bitterness on the back end. Hints of earthy, floral qualities as well that I’ve come to get used to with Nelson Sauvin hops.

Nice pillowy soft mouthfeel. Medium carbonation and smooth going down. Light mouth coating and residual stickiness.

12oz can from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 2.89. No canning date. Served in a goblet. Enjoyed 6/8/18.

Pours a hazy, opaque muted orange with over two fingers of ecrue head. The foam recedes, leaving a light surface haze, a thin belt and several sizeable patches of lace.

Smells primarily of citrus and tropical hops. There are also notes of vague flowers, berries and a little cakey malt presence.

Juicy orange and melon notes kick off the flavor. Earthy floral, a moderate dankness, sweet biscuit and just a hint of alcohol.

Body is pillowy and rather full with fluffy carbonation. There seems to be a little more bitterness to the aftertaste with orange peel, melon rind and a little bit of cake.

They’ve been distributing to Georgia for a couple months but this is my first brew from Trimtab. The Original 006 is a solid DIPA in the currently popular hazy, juicy style. I won’t shy away from enjoying more of this and will need to branch out to try more from Trimtab.

I'm trying this at the brewery. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had tropical fruit presence. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with tropical fruit presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

Poured from 16 oz. can dated 7/19/2018.

A: Completely hazy pale orange tinted yellow with 1-2 finger white head. Lasting retention and moderate lacing.

S: Amazing aromas that hit you as soon as you start the pour. Pineapple, mango, passion fruit, and ripe melons.

T: Straight up juicy NEIPA. Mango, pineapple, apricot, slightly overripe melons with just a touch of grapefruit. Just the right amount of dank hops.

M: Medium body with average carbonation. Soft creamy mouthfeel.

O: Excellent DIPA. Hoping more of these offerings from Trim Tab makes it up our way.
