Enjoyed at the Armsby Abbey, poured into a standard pint glass.
A - Poured a very nice lightly hazy straw orange hue with a one finger head that leaves very creamy lacing and a dense creamy blanket. As it is drank it leaves a thick creamy lacing all down the glass. Wonderful.
S - Aromas of very nice fresh galaxy hoops, wonderful tropical notes, light pineapple, study mango and grapefruit. Nice pine, well done.
T - Taste has taken an already delicious fort point pale and improved it immensely with the addition of galaxy. Wonderful tropical notes, pineapple and pine with wonderful grapefruit. The finish is not overly bitter and is super drinkable. Just well rounded flavours here.
M - Mouthfeel is crisp, slightly sharp. Alcohol hidden nicely, super drinkable.
O - Overall I really enjoyed this beer. Very well done and the addition of the galaxy hops really made this beer pop. Would have again in a heart beat.

I have had this beer 3 times since it was released last week. Today is my birthday. I am feeling good. With that said I put this pale ale on par with - yes I am going to say it - Anber. It has a super hoppy appeal to it in a tropical sense. Big fresh mango, pineapple, citrus bursts, it has a creamy-like mouth feel the way a heady topper and and an Abner do. And like those two monsters this is quaffable as hell. So drinkable that it is scary. In fact, when this nectar of love hits my lips, it tastes like the first time I ever opened a heady back a few years ago: love. Now say what you will but if you are anywhere near Boston right now get to Trillium and try this. NOW. Edit: I know Abner is a DIPA. That's just how I feel about the beer.
