Year of New Beer: Martin Denny Complex, TrimTab Brewing Co (Birmingham)

Written By: Dion on 03/28/2020

Great beer for such a warm, beautiful day. Passionfruit practically leaps from the glass, tropical and juicy in its presentation. Hints of guava, apricot, and pineapple are fleeting, as a peach cobbler effect kicks in with warmth. Seems to be reversed on the tongue, with a slightly tart peach leading, then fading into a passionfruit that takes on a touch of sweetness due to the vanilla addition. Definitely has a tropical punch type vibe toward the finish. Just a bit heavy in my opinion, but still quite good, with a very well-hidden 7.5% ABV. TrimTab has definitely found their way with sours and New England IPAs.
