Notes: Second Orbit is a Hazy Triple IPA brewed for our Second Trip around the sun. Brewed with heavy amounts of Oats. Orbitally hopped with Mosaic, Galaxy, Citra, and our new favorite experimental hop HBC 692. Expect ripe tropicals, rich citrus and balanced pine. Hope you’ve enjoyed our second trip as much as we did.

4.25/5  rDev -3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Opaque juicy pour. Medium golden color with thick foamy white head. Great lacing.

S: Sweet fruits and booze. Citrus and mango.

T.F: Semi-sweet... grains and tropical fruit. Tangerine citrus, pine, mango, and pineapple. Dank... melon and a bit of pepper. Modest bitterness. Warming... medium to thick bodied and sticky on the tongue. ABV is hidden but the booze sneaks through a bit as it warms.

O: A big DIPA. Solid flavor... a little boozy and 1 is more than enough, but a definite treat. Worth snagging if you can find it.

4.14/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pale yellow in color with an opaque, unfiltered appearance. Poured with a short, creamy white foam that quickly dissipated. Dark melon, papaya and mellow tropical fruit aromas with notes of malt and cereal oats. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Light silly smooth feel and expanding, mellow boozy warmth from beginning to end. Dark tropical fruit flavors, mango, papaya and melon followed by medium light hop bitterness and mellow booziness to the end. Medium light malty backbone. Finished with a bit of boozy heat, subtle bitterness and fruity notes. Very well balanced for the high abv, which is very well hidden, and considering the low bitterness. Very tasty.

4.31/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Opaque yellowish orange color with stick white head on top. The smell of the beer has a very nice citrusy cream like aroma. The taste is a little piney, some orange and subtle grapefruit bitterness. The feel is smooth, hardly feels like 10%. Overall this is another home run for New Trail.

From an undated 16oz can but released just a few weeks ago. What a lovely triple IPA! No heat from the higher ABV at all. Just lots of juicy tropical notes on the nose and palate. A little sweetness, too, so I would not be surprised if a little lactose is in the brew. One of New Trail’s best, for sure.
