Literally canned this morning, not even on shelves yet.

Pours a lightly pale, completely hazy golden yellow, flecked with an orange hue. A nice soft, white head of foam settles at about a half finger and falls back into the beer slowly and with small patterns of lace.

Tons of pineapple and hints of mango on the nose. A tad green still, but this one will bloom so nicely. A great piney hop presence balances perfectly, and the zythos comes out strong with subtle background aromas of tangerine and grapefruit.

I love when you can pick out particular hop characteristics in an IPA. Chinook hops really emerge in the flavors and mellow out the strong pineapple backbone. Medium spice intensity and a good balance of piney, pithy hops. As mentioned, this was canned today so I’d predict the hop intensity to mellow, but with a great pineapple, melon and overripe mango backbone it will come full circle really nicely.

Smooth, dank, medium carb. Soft mouthfeel and mildly warm finish. Super drinkable 8%, really excited with this Trimtab product. They continue to absolutely kill the Southern Beer game.
