Thanks, floozy flooz. Can. The beer is a touch darker than other Trillium hoppy stuff that Iíve had recently. Itís quite hazy. Medium-ish head, white in color. The aroma is a mix of tropical and spicy dank hop flavors. Big orange juice flavor underneath it. Pineapple, tangerine, onion, pine, oregano. Interesting mix of flavors but itís a bit deep and dank for my taste. The taste is moderately bitter, picking up some pine resin in the finish. Good bit of hop flavor comes though. Medium body, fairly soft in feel. I definitely prefer Congress Street, but I think this will come down to personal preference in hop character.

16oz can. Hazy amber with a frothy white head. Flavors are passion fruit, grapefruit peel, lychee and sweet malts with resinous and woodsy notes. Light to medium body, soft carbonation, smooth texture.

Fresh Can, smell and flavor are simcoe/dorado hop pellets, mango and so much earth and lemon lime hop notes in this one. No onions or cheese but the mouthfeel is a bit off. Hazy orange golden color. Taste like ingredients....mostly hops rather than a complete beer

From notes. This one was enjoyed at Travisís house during a planned two-man IPA rampage on July 5. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a bright golden prange color, not as hazy and murky as other Trillium stuff Iíve had before. There is a nice thick white head that recedes slowly. The aroma is excellent. There is a nice citrus up front, topical fruits and pine resin with a nice bitterness on the back end. The flavors mimic this. Itís just juicy and fruity, resiny and bitter all in one. This is a winner. The mouth feel is light, well carbonated for an IPA, with that tropical fruit and pine resin carrying it away. Damn this is a good IPA.

ebone1988 (1257) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Aroma is juicy, citrus, pine, pineapple, some more tropical fruit, delicious. Appearance is amber golden, hazy, off white head. Taste is a nice balance of citrus and tropical fruit at the back end, full of pine and bitter without being too malty. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, tropical fruit and pine aftertaste. Overall, solidly good.

Bottle. The pour is a hazy orange. The aroma is a light citrus hop profile. The taste has a lot of hops, very light though. More citrus hops overall. The taste is a little less full hop profile than others I have had from them. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to Tristan pouts a hazy light orange. Juicy citrus and watermelon hop aroma. Light clean malt with lots of citrus and spicy hop taste. An amazing combo of hop flavor and light malt.

750mL from Redstone. Pours cloudy orange yellow with a big white head. Aroma is lime, orange, grapefruit. Nice and soft with tangerine, lime citrus. Orange peel and a bit of pine bitter in the finish. This goes down way too easy. Halfway through the bottle and I have to bump up my rate... 4.0 to 4.1. Itís that good!

_angst_ (4391) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2016
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours very hazy, almost milky, deep yellow with a creamy white head that leaves lots of sticky lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and grassy with crackers, grapefruit juice, nectarines, tangerines, peaches, raspberries, freshly cut grass, pine needles, minerals and lemon zest. Taste is bitter, fruity and grassy. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly dry, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter with subtle fruits, raspberries and peppery grass. Good hoppy beer but Iím not sure I love the raspberry character.
