I've had many different type of beers and this beer is a great IPA.. Trillium has been on point with a lot of beers and they hit it with this one.. This beer is hoppy with an unbelievable citrus taste.. If I had to compare this beer to any beer it would be Abner by Hill Farmstead.. Cheers!!!

750 mL bottle purchased at Trillium. Poured into a HF wine glass at 39F

Reviewed using the old scoring system.

A: 4.25 Thick blocky white head 1.5" thick. Cloudy to murky straw colored body with fine carbonation. Head regenerates with gentle swirling. Fine lacing remains on the glass.

S: 4.50 Sticky dank hops with notes of pine and resin. Tropical mango and citrus fruit in the nose. Malt is muted, but thos is west coast IPA all the way. Hints of fresh squeezed OJ.

T: 4.25 Again, tropical fruit and citrus. Think mango, pineapple and papaya. Pine notes in the nose are more or less absent in the taste. Malt backbone is barely present, but that is suitable for this style. A touch of earthy dryness on the finish, but this is bursting with juicy flavor up front.

M: 4.00 Surprisngly light given the heavy handed hop presence. Good carbonation balances the richness and even at 7+ % this is very drinkable. Coats the mouth with a slight stickiness, but not overly so and the muted malts prevent overt sweetness.

O: 4.50 This is a lovely east coast version of an IPA. Aside from the 750 mL serving size, this is great. Delicious hops up front with fruitiness and rich body. Highly recommended.
