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!

Damico (2862) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2015
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.

Mr_Abner (154) - Michigan, USA - JAN 14, 2015
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.

Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness and pine linger in the close. Top draw DIPA !

MWMBeerguy (176) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 3, 2015
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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (8791) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours hazy golden with a thick off-white head. The nose is soft,sweet, juicy, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, apricot, sweet persimmon, freshly cut grass and wood. The taste is smooth, rich, soft fruits, bitter-sweet, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, straw, light sherbet, straw and toast with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, crushable and super-easy going. Brilliant balance. A joy to drink.

Leighton (13821) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle shared in London - picked up last week from the brewery. Pours cloudy gold with a frothy white head. Stunning nose, lots of dank hop, some pithy grapefruit, pale wood. Medium sweet flavor, buckets of juicy grapefruit, mellow rindy bitterness, rich pith. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with some resin, pithy grapefruit, jars of orange juice, lemon rind. Well balanced, thick and juicy. Gah, outrageous. Superlative beer.

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