Just grabbed a fresh growler

A-great hazy very pale yellow beer with a beautiful fluffy white head

S-subtle notes of grapefruit, pepper, lemon and slight malt lingering.

T-very similar to nose. Unsure of hops in this but it's a nice citrus, slight pepper like a wet hop IPA notes. Very fresh tasting. Clean and refreshing.

M- for a 4.8% this does not feel watery or anything. Very nice beer.

The beer pours very little bubbly head that is white and dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is a pale golden straw that is clear. The beer smell has a bitter grapefruit and pine smell with a bit of fruity sweetness. The taste is somewhat similar to the smell. Bitter and pine hops with a malty sweetness and a bit of fruity taste as well. The malt also has a slight bread flavor. The beer feel medium bodied but on the heavy side and biting carbonation. Overall, a pretty good beer and worth getting again.

Smells like weed and pineapples. Taste follows the smell but much more less intense. Dry cracker malt base. It's a good and crushable pale.

Pocket Pigeon pours a hazy straw yellow with a small, creamy head on top. Minimal lace on the glass.

The aroma is a nice blend of orange and tangerine citrus with a touch of tropical fruit mixed in.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is soft on the palate, a little creamy, with mild carbonation. The flavor is orange and tangerine citrus, some dank tropical fruit, and a mildly bitter finish. Once gone the citrus lingers on the palate.

This is an easy drinking, wonderfully flavored beer. Very refreshing.

An easy drinking blonde ale. Pale gold coloration with some cloudiness. Minimal head and lacing. Slight hoppy aroma, some carbonation, minor ibu's on the backend. Some citrus. Overall pretty good.

64 oz growler was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy golden yellow with some clarity of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank too.

Smell: Citrus, lemon, floral, piney, and herbal hops followed by yeastiness and bready and pale malts.

Taste: Same as above. Nice hop flavor, traditional blond style malts, some yeastiness, and light bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, a little chewy, light bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Might go back and get another growler this week.

This is a really good example of a New England APA, it's a hazy yellow color, with aroma and flavor dominated with juicy, flowery hops. The only problem with it is you can't help but size it up against some of the other stellar hop forward beers that Trillium makes, in which it becomes a little thin and mellow, possibly even with grainy and medicinal off flavors.
