L-Pours a nice hazy straw gold colored beer with a one finger tall frothy head that lingers for a while.
S- Smells great. Nice piney and grassy hops combined with an almost candy-like fruity sour and sweetness. Some yeast aromas are there as well.
T-Per usual it follows the nose. Very sweet and bitter flavor punch. There's a great amount of fruit and malty sweetness and a calm melon like flavor. I also notice some pickled olive as well? It isn't necessarily bad, but it's a little out of place.
F- Full bodied mouthfeel that is quite pleasant. Almost milky.
O- This is a pretty damn good DIPA. I'm actually having it at a few months old and it's aged well and has held it's original flavor pretty well. Enjoyed every sip. Would seek out again. Good job Trimtab! never doubted ya!

Brewery pour.

Dark murky opaque yellow with a creamy finger of head.

Aroma is of ripe tropical fruits and some grainy malt. Takes some agitation.

Flavor brings pine, grass, and mango. Following notes of pine, apple, and wet grass. A little pineapple core.

Feel is acidic and juicy, nice compounding resins on the palate.

Overall a very tasty hazy IPA. On the piney-bitter side. Would probably have again.

This hit two highwater marks for DIPAs....the most interesting hop profile and the ugliest appearance. Otherwise, mostly unremarkable. Wouldn't decline if offered, and wouldn't seek out, if given the opportunity.

Canned 12/11/19.

The pour right away revealed yet another TrimTab release falling victim to oxidation. The color is murky and brown, not the worst case I've seen but up there. A positive visual on the contrary is the frothy white head, that sits comfortably and leaves heavy patterning of lace behind as the beer falls.

The nose is excellent. The Zythos and Huell Melon work in perfect harmony; tangerine, mango, and candied grapefruit all ring true, with some subtler undertones of vanilla from that Zythos tying everything into a bow. There's an herbaceous hop quality on the tail that finishes the nose off with a touch of bitterness.

Similar qualities as those found on the nose, albeit just a little milder overall. Sweet grapefruit helps emphasize the malt bill, with a re-emergence of mango, vanilla, and added undertones of apricot. The hops are more prevalent here, herbal & earthy with a touch of dank pine in the finish. Only real evidence of oxidation could be a mild tang I was getting in the finish, but if I was blindfolded and drinking this I'd have no idea.

Medium-bodied and smooth, with a medium carbonation that's effervescent but not sharp. A touch of filminess, but it finishes soft and lightly sticky.

One of the best hazy IPAs I've had from them lately. The look and feel is very standard for a TrimTab IPA. Feel is very good, maybe above average for the style. Where it gets me is the taste. The hop profile is done very well on this beer. Neither over or underwhelming in flavor
