Notes: Trellis is a Hazy Double IPA brewed in collaboration with our dear friends from Warwick Farm Brewing and Breweries in PA. Brewed with fluffy oats and hopped heavily with HBC 586, Sabro, and Citra. HBC 586 is a new experimental hop from the Yakima Valley known for its high tropical notes. Expect notes of papaya, pineapple juice, and rich citrus.

We brewed Trellis for our collective love of the craftsmanship behind growing hops. We're constantly inspired by the relationship the growing bines have with their environments.

No freshness info, wtf. Recently added to BA, so I took a shot. Glad I did.

Not sure if this makes sense, but the fruit flavors here come across as more juice-like than I recall experiencing in an IPA. It's not a good or bad thing, just interesting. Perhaps it comes across a bit sweeter as a result?

Anyway, loads of pineapple as they said plus some citrus and, more faintly, some tropical fruit. No trace of that 9% to be found. Damn good.

This beer is a beautiful, hazy golden straw color with a dense white head that laces the glass nicely. The aromas are as advertised on the can, with loads of tangerine, pineapple, and mango amongst other tropical citrus notes.

The pineapple is forward on the taste, and the tangerine follows, and a bit of creamy oat flavor is also present. The mouthfeel is very full and on the softer side, per the style.

This is a delicious beer that is dangerously poundable at 9% ABV. Need some more beers from this brewery in my beer nerd life.

Undated (WTF) can into pint glass. Pours a murky gold with a nice off-white head. Great lacing. Initial impression is sweet citrus, pineapple, and a bit of pink grapefruit. Mouthfeel is smooth and verging on sticky. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, but you know you're drinking a DIPA. Finish is lush and slightly prickly. Overall, one of New Trail's better offerings (and there have been a LOT of good beeers from this brewery)! Generally I'm leery of collabs, but this one works!

Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is murky straw gold, head is off white with fine bubbles, head presents 1 finger thick then dissipates to a solid thin top.

Smell is subdued with light malt, hop notes of mixed tropicals, light citrus with lean towards tangerine and note of pith, malt and oats are lightly sweet but not overly aromatic.

Taste is similar, again a little subdued - mixed subdued tropicals, tangerine citrus, light herbal notes, maybe gin like with some alcohol esters emanating with warmth.

Mouthfeel is low carbonation, moderate sweetness, low bitterness, slight boozy burn.

Overall I find this to be one of the more boozy New Trail HIPAs - not in a bad way but the aroma and flavor are toned down some and the alcohol comes forth and combines with some of the subtler herbal and pithy notes to create a hopped gin like experience.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Hazed medium golden pour. Foamy white head... great retention/lacing.

S: Pineapple and citrus.

T.F: Sweet up front... a bit boozy. Loads of tropical fruit and pineapple. Lighter citrus... tangerine and grapefruit. Creamy mouthfeel... on the heavier side of medium bodied. Smooth carbonation and modest bitterness.

O: Another fine beer in a very similar lineup of New Trail hazy DIPA's. On the boozy side, but as always well done.

Another New Trail collaboration and another good excuse for a new label. To start, a pint can has been emptied into a clear glass liter mug. This process revealed an orange-amber liquid, dull and cloudy. The white head is modest and enduring. Unlike many a New Trail Hazy, this has almost no aroma. A dry hoppiness may be the most prominent. Still, there's plenty to taste. It doesn't transition, as some do, but that's OK. Everything is carried and balanced well. The 9% ABV is practically unnoticed by the tongue, although the countenance and motor skills notice it aplenty. Very mild and subtle are the flavors, which include malt, oats, and hops of the dryly bitter variety, akin to some West Coast IPAs. Some glass lacing adds to the visual. The body is rich and smooth, yet somehow finishes light on the tongue. Maybe that finish runs a little too dry and becomes somewhat chalky. Blame the oats, if you must, but they contribute more than they detract. Just one more amazing Double Hazy IPA from Williamsport PA and make the bet, there will be more to follow.
