Looks like quality craft! Hazy and beautiful!
Smells like fruity hop candy! Almost like tropical cotton candy infused with sugary sweet marshmallow cream! WOW! And of course fruity hops.
TASTY! Not as sweet as the smell, which is good. It’s very balanced and very flavorful. The smell makes you go crazy and the taste is just right.
Feels nice and thick like a DIPA should be, with decent bite.
Overall this is one of my favorite DIPAS, EVER! Trim Tab is my new favorite Bham beer! They’ve got so many great DIPAS available. WORLD CLASS!

A: Hazy gold with lots of foam and very sticky lacing.
N: Very tropical with some citrus and vanilla.
T: Sweet hit of vanilla, tropical, and citrus with some chewy sugar.
M: Clean with a sugary back end, low ABV and almost no bite.
O: A nice beer but not one I could do back to back, more a single treat. Good but sweet.

I've drank 8 of this straight out of the can and always enjoyed it. This last one I poured into a glass to get a full look. Actually zero head on this on at all, a few bubbles only. Perhaps it's a very temperamental beer as it seems the longer they sit in the fridge the less flavor. It's cloudy in the sense of how a really dirty pond would look (not in a bad way). I'm used to a lot of New Englands looking like orange juice. This is more just a hazy/foggy beer with a medium hue.

Aroma has a faint evergreen in spring smell to it, mixed with light vanilla. Very pleasant.

I'll start with the aftertaste. One of the best aftertastes from a beer ever - if you like a little bit of excitement. The more hazy and juicy IPAs get the less piney they are. This is definitely in the sweet category - but mostly sweet in aftertaste not initial sip. Seriously the aftertaste of eating a marshmallow - in a good way. It's more of the taste you get with your mouth closed and breathing through your nose, if you know what I mean. Ok the initial flavor - vanilla and marshmallow are strong, some hits of citrus, but not much.

Mouthfeel has a light carbonation but not too much, fairly smooth overall. Would call it a medium body feel.

Overall an amazing beer. When I first took a sip of this out of the can at Mom's Basement in Birmingham, I couldn't contain my overjoy with the flavor. I really like this one. Sad it's a limited run batch to be honest, as this would do really well on the mass market. If you trade beer, this is definitely worth shipping to your beer buddies across the country.

No canned on date, but the second-newest addition to TrimTab’s Light Visions lineup.

The pour is a deep, murky orange, hazy and with a nice finger height of creamy white head that leaves heavy lacing around the glass as it settles.

The hops fight through for a fairly potent nose on this. Vanilla and Marshmallow are there, creating similar aromas to a milk sugar addition. Hops more grassy, herbal, with a sharp bite noticeable on the nose. As it warms it really comes more into that “marshmallow charm”-forward IPA.

More of the same in the flavors. Soft vanilla leads the way, cutting through those often-potent Loral hops. As it settles, citrusy/piney hops work well to contrast a really noticeable emergence of marmallow charms.. it’s subtle, but definitely a solid ode to Lucky Charms.

Soft, with a low but present carbonation and a good amount of residual stickiness as it finishes
