3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
30th December 2014
5 Kay, 7.5 Kay, 10 Kay Tasting. Big thanks to Leighton for hauling back more Trillium goodness. Lightly hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is crispy and semi dry. Smooth airy pale malts. Little creamy sweetness. Hops are spicy skunk with mild but bitter floralness. Trace of tropical fruits. Nice hop spice through the finish and well in to the aftertaste. Great beer to finish a great tasting!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours unclear syrupy amber with a brighter light sandy white head. Aroma is delicious sweet grapefruit with a pleasant but potent blend of three nice citrus and subtle piney hops. Flavor brings lemon curd on a full almost juicy body with a smooth bite of non spicy citrus hops.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (bottled six weeks ago). Pours a hazy yellow. Aroma is of ripe tropical fruit. The flavor is all hops to me -- not a bad thing at all. Flavor reflects the aroma, fruity with a medium, lasting bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dinged this beer four a couple reasons. One I am not a fan of these east coast IPAs that look like applesauce. Two the aroma was a bit subdued compared to Trillium's pale ale. Lastly after 2 sips I was out of my groove and knew I was going to have a headache. Not my favorite IPA

Woo-wee, this is hoppy. The citra gives the big citrus aroma while the amarillo comes in with spice (pine). Very tasty.
