No head or carbonation left; red-ochre beer. Grapefruit, milkwey, babymilk, exotic fruit, mild. Wry-bitterish taste, woody, grapefruitpeel, walnut peel. Not very lively [tasted in less than ideal circumstances], medium bodied at best. Good IPA Thanks to Louis and Mathieu!

Thanks to ElManana+1! 32 oz. growler sampled @ “Tim’s orgasmic Trillium tasting”. Light golden, small white head. Nose is sweetish pine resin, caramel, orange, some sweetish butter. Taste is buttery pine resin, oily, caramel, touch butterscotch, malt, USA hops & some sugar. Body is lower carbonation & some butter. Okay beer, touch too sweetish & buttery for me.

Tap. Poured clear light copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop, floral and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate citrus bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Good complex brew.
