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.

Aroma is sweet, floral, tropical fruit and pine. Appearance is dark , white head. Taste is piny, some tropical fruit, bitter and nice. Mouthfeel is perfect carbonation and great aftertaste. Overall, this is a nice go-to for the brewery.

Draft to pint at Witch’s Hat. Looks good; a transparent fuller golden orange with white head. Smells of juicy and piney hops with a moderately bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Could be dryer and a bit lighter, but enjoyable nonetheless.

DrSilverworm (9089) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Taste on tap during Michigan Summer Beer Fest. Clear orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Leaves some loose bits of lace. Moderate-plus bitter taste, moderate sweet. Good citrusy, earthy, floral hop. Moderate caramel malt. More of a balanced IPA, regarding hop/malt. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Light slick. A decent IPA. Kind of a bigger sweet malt to it.
