4.28/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a growler into a goblet.

Pours very cloudy, typical of many Trillium brews. Normally I kind of like this, but in this case, with the red tint, the brew looks a little like swamp water.

The aroma is a blast of fresh hops. Slightly floral, slightly lemony, overwhelmingly fresh.

The hop profile is very similar to their Congress Street brew. Lots of citrusy flavors. But in this case the malt mutes the hops slightly, leaving lemon as the most potent flavor remaining. It is a nice refreshing complement to the sharp rye-like flavor. Together, the flavors combine to create a nice earthy brew.

Finishes sticky, slightly sweet, and not overwhelmingly bitter.

Another nice offering from Trillium. Compares favorably to my favorite Maine Beer company brew, Zoe.

A-Pours a dark, brownish red hue. Thinner head. It leaves speckles of lacing along my cup.

S-Aroma isn't going to blow you away with its hoppiness. It's more of a complex, balanced brew. It's got some spicy rye to it along with a robust sweetness. The hops are spicy, floral and piney.

T-The flavor is again balanced. The hops are potent but matched by the beer's sweetness. Hops are spicy, floral and piney with some tangy grapefruit. I again get some light rye spice.

M-The booze is well hidden. Body isn't incredibly full; lending some high drinkability. Bitter. It the bitterness seems hollow and doesn't stem from a ton of hop flavor.

O/D-I was a bit disappointed by this one. This also came after drinking some of their Congress Street IPA (which is one of my favorite beers I have had all year). I don't know, it just came up a bit short for me. I want a more stiffing hoppiness. Still, it's a pretty solid beer.
