TrimTablogoTrimTab Brewing (Birmingham, Alabama) has officially announced that The Original 006, its award-winning Double Dry-hopped Hazy Double IPA, will make a surprise return on Tuesday, December 31 as a part of the brewery’s New Year’s Eve festivities.

Revived to stir up some memories as 2019 closes and 2020 brings with it a new decade of opportunities, The Original 006 is a Hazy/Juicy Double India Pale Ale that establishes a backbone with American 2-Row barley and “an irresponsible amount of fluffy soft oats,” features an “extremely fruit forward” yeast strain, and receives a “massive Double Dry Hop treatment of [the brewery’s] newest and absolute freshest crops of Galaxy, Nelson Sauvin and Simcoe hops.”  With the hop bill supplying “aromas and flavors of ripe, juicy peaches, cantaloupe rind, white grape juice and papaya jam,” The Original 006 offers a “soft and creamy [mouthfeel] reminiscent of pulpy OJ and has an easy-going piney bitterness and deceiving drinkability for its high 8.7% ABV.”

This latest batch of The Original 006 will officially debut in the Tasting Gallery at TrimTab Brewing at noon on December 31 and is expected to enter distribution shortly after the on-site release.  You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within the brewery’s distribution footprint in Alabama and Georgia.  Prost!
