“Brewed in celebration of the first anniversary of Row 34, our favorite Fort Point oyster bar and craft-beer purveyor, Vicinity highlights a neighborhood collaboration of passion and vision. Appearance is bright and straw-colored. Spicy, earthy aromas of tropical fruit notes abound.”
Appearance: Somewhat light mustard yellow complexion. Turbid AF. It holds a thick and creamy two finger head which leaves an absolute mess on the glass as we imbibe.
Aroma: Phwoar! Proper old-school NEIPA. Reminds us of the first time we tried a Treehouse NEIPA all the way back in 2017. Fruit salad type of aroma with the classic dank pine and fennel. Frosty Fruits are coming through strong…so to are tropical mango, orange, rockmelon and pineapple. Getting an umami hit from it too. Dry, chalky and crusty malt profile. Liking it!
Flavour: This is why we fell in love with NEIPA’s. It’s like breakfast juice, Frosty Fruits, fresh orange and dank pine in luscious beer form. Definitely has a weedy accent to it as well. Shallot, herbal spice, ruby grapefruit and green mango rolling into a smooth, oat-filled finish with lingering dank weedy notes on the back end.
Mouthfeel: Ultra smooth, creamy and aerated. Very finely carbed. Hides the 8% ABV incredibly well.
Overall: Trillium hey. It’s been a long time between drinks. Massive shout out to ExperienceIt beverages for shipping these in as Trillium are one of the OG NEIPA brewers. It has been nostalgic and entertaining to wrap our laughing gear around of their world class beers again.
