Wow! This is a really great beer. Pours very hazy into the glass with a orange hue. The aroma is supper hoppy and leads into an incredible hop flavor but the finish is not bitter. I must say this is by far my favorite pale ale. (231 characters)

Luckily my brother went to Boston and scooped me up a few bottles.. Poured a Hazy orange almost orange juice like. I got a ton of grapefruit Excellent head and lacing. Trillium is killing it. (191 characters)

Juicy goodness!
One of the most beautiful looking beers I've ever seen - a beautiful golden haze, there must be orange juice with pulp added, it's that thick looking
Aroma is all tropical fruit nothing else, I feel like I'm in the rainforest in IPA land, it's amazing!
Tastes smooth as a mother, tons of Passionfruit and butter!
Damn this is good, mouthfeel is great, a bit of a kick compared to FPPA
Overall a beer that needs to be appreciated by any beer lover, this is incredible (482 characters)

Delicious IPA, lots of citrus and floral notes, with a slightly earthy and bitter finish. The texture is super juicy at first, quite oily for an IPA, finishes pleasantly dry. Very nice IPA. (189 characters)

The beer looks terrible. Cloudy, muddy, and completely opaque. It's not inviting in the least. But the aroma is incredible. Very huge hop flavors in layers. The flavor is just as good. It's so juicy and crushable the one glass I had was gone in minutes. Mouthfeel was great as well. If you can get over the appearance (and really there isn't any reason you shouldn't because it's the taste that matters) this is truly a beer to seek out. (437 characters)

The look of a trillium beer is really incredible. Absolutely opaque in its murkiness. Hugely hopped and big on the nose and palate. The feel is big for an APA, but not unwelcomed. (179 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

poured a 750ml into a snifter.

A - Very hazy pale yellow color that looks like it could be pure OJ. Brilliant white 2 finger head that fades very slowly and leaves a thin cap for the session. Terrific webbed lacing splattered around the glass.

S - Oh my! The aroma is so juicy! The hops used in this have high citrus aroma like a glass of orange and grapefruit juice, with hints of mango and guava. There is also a bitter element to it.

F - Like citrus and tropical hoped APAs? This will be one of your all time favorites! Makes me think if Zombie dust and grapefruit sculpin had a love child. I can't even describe all the citrus and tropical flavors along with the medium bitterness.

M - Superb feel and perfect carbonation with a juicy, yet dry finish.

O - What else do I say? This beer is amazing (809 characters)

Outstanding beer. Pours a murky, hazy gold out of the bottle with a moderate head that lasts; there's no chance you're seeing through the other side of the glass. Dank, dank, dank, hoppy aroma bursts forth and and dominates the senses. Taste is earthy, citrus and pine. Unbelievably hoppy without being cloy with a heavy bitterness. Clearly these guys are at the top of their game and this is a prime example. (409 characters)

Poured out of a bomber bottled 5 days earlier into a Spiegaleu/dogfishhead ipa glass with a medium pure white head over a beautiful hazy orange/gold body. Smell is clean tropical fruits and puppies and dreams, taste somehow follows up with more punch and power than the nose, with a feel that is both silky and sneaky good. Clearly an IPA, clearly the best I've had, rivals the feeling I got when I had my first Cantillon. Well done Trillium, you guys are the best. (465 characters)

750 ml bottle. More of the same look of all these hoppy Trillium beers. Hazy golden orange with a big foamy white head. Aromas are grassy, tropical and extremely fresh green hops. Flavor is quite smooth, citrus, bitterness and a nice clean finish. This is some killer stuff right here. (285 characters)

This beer is ridiculously good! Tried side by side with King Sue and this Double Dry Hopped Double IPA stood up to the task! Looks like a Mimosa and has tons of Juicy Hops characteristics!! (191 characters)

750ml bottle, approximately 3 weeks of age. Served in a snifter glass.

Pours an incredibly hazy, cloudy medium yellow body, two finger white head with perfect effervescence and retention. This is the pitch-perfect picture of a New England-style pale ale. Lots of rings of lacing. Smells of rich tropical fruit, mango, passion fruit, citrus, a mild pale malt backbone. Whoa. Hops galore. Flavour is an incredibly refreshing tropical fruit flavour, very much like the Juicy Fruit gum, except the flavour is certainly much more authentic. A bit of grass, grapefruit also complements the tropical fruits. Minimal caramel sweetness pokes its head out just enough to provide the requisite balance. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, fluffy, incredibly refreshing and drinkable. Not particularly bitter. A bit of grapefruit flavour on the finish that serves as a nice transition and change of pace from the tropical fruit flavours. Overall, this was a very impressive APA with a ton of tropical fruit and citrus hop character. Not only that, it is so crushable and leaves you wanting more. Absolutely worth going after. (1,106 characters)

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pours a hazy pale-yellow color with a froth, big head.

Offers a fantastic nose of fresh cut grass, water melon and ripe orange. The hops create an intense aroma, gently balanced by bready malts. Creates a ridiculous juiciness, reminding me of fruit juice with lemon zest blending into luscious, sun bathed oranges.

Has a medium carbonation, with a supersoft, slightly mineralic mouthfeel. This showcases the hops in the best way possible, as there are no distractions whatsoever, very refreshing on the palate.

Tastes of aqueous minerals, setting the bar for the beers incredibly soft, almost silk mouthfeel. Hops do hover above this foundation on from the very beginning, while turning a lot grassier, as the carbonation rushes through, also revealing a profound dankness with crisp lemon zest on top. The hops turn even more complex by revealing hints of ripe orange, prickly kiwi and water melon which perfectly add to the beers dankness. Finishes with a leaf inspired dryness, among which rock sugar sparkled malts turn visible for a short glance, which then get wrapped up by sour, slightly slick lemon and juicy orange.

The nose on this blows me away, revealing an amazing, crisp diversity, which is nothing but perfect. It showcases a wider variety of aromas, which all come together perfectly, leaving no desire unfullfilled. Aromas get beautifully converted into the taste, providing a fantastic mouthfeel with lemon and oranges, with an enjoyable intensity, while remaining refreshing and easy drinkable. (1,519 characters)

This applies to many IPAs coming from the east coast but some people are turned off by the cloudy opacity of this beer. I for one love it and to me it adds to the overall experience of a delicious, crisp, and juicy beer. (221 characters)

Thanks Kevin for gifting me the bottle.

A- Turbid and severely hazy pale yellow pour from the 750ml bottle to a few glasses. Large, thick creamy white head makes it to a few fingers with great retention. Massive ring drops large webs and drizzled lace.

S- Mango nectar in the spotlight with fruits and floral tones beyond that. Orange peel and juice, tangerines, clementine, peach, dank herbs and slight melon. Clean yeast and grains.

T- Smooth and juicy flavor profile driven by the hops. Huge mango again leads off to a blast of hops with oranges, tangerine, apricot, cantaloupe, herbs, melon and citrus zest. A bit more reserved that I expected but suits the APA style.

MF- Smooth, crisp and fairly creamy overall consistency. Carbonation is medium to high and it all ends with a slight bitterness.

Tons of hops with the mango tropical fruits up front and a fruit basket with some herbs beyond that. Smooth and it doesn't quite reach hop juice levels staying an APA somehow. Not quite as good as PseudoSue for me but definitely in that ballpark. (1,053 characters)

Wow. Other than being an awful looking beer, it smells like straight orange juice - from across the room. Flavor follows nose - absolutely exploding with citrus and tropical fruit. Fantastic pale, and it crushed Julius in my side by side. (239 characters)

Pours a beautiful hazy and creamy grapefruit juice consistency. Nice hop aroma with some tropical notes. The taste and feel are about a perfect combination. Drinks so easy as a pale ale but the flavors are bold and lasting with little to no bitterness in the finish at all. Fantastic beer. (293 characters)

Recently had a 64oz growler of this beer, and also currently working my way through a whole case of it...I just don't want those bottles to ever run out. This is one special beer. My first offering from Trillium, which I had built and hyped up so much in my own mind, and it still blew me away. The bottles are still amazing, but the taste of this brew from the growler only 3 days after it was poured...probably the tastiest beer I have had to date. Do yourself a favor and get some of this beer any way you can! (516 characters)

Perfect beer. A masterpiece. This beer was hyped before I tried it (which was the reason I traded for it in the first place), and it still blew me away. The aroma hit me as I poured it, and I stopped to take in its essence for a good 30 seconds or so before I continued pouring....the best smelling hoppy beer in the history of the universe? Likely. Then I looked at it. God damn, what a juicy, beautiful looking beer...then the taste - my god...Ive never did a tasting double take, but I had to do it here. Upon second sip, my first impression was confirmed. This is what flawless tastes like. Just a ridiculous offering from the hop masters at Trillium. Worth trading your first born for. (691 characters)

Velvety smooth and delicious. Great hop taste without the bite

Yet another great trillium brew (202 characters)

Bottle shared by Curran tonight, thanks man.

This one pours so turbid and hazy, looks like thick orange juice, with a one inch head, and tons of lacing. I'm gonna take a wild guess and say that is unfiltered.

This smells awesome just a huge orange, mango, and grapefruit aroma, sweet but dank as well.

As expected, this is turbid and delicious. So so juicy and citrusy, so much grapefruit and orange, a bit of herbal grassiness, and absolutely no malt backbone that I can detect. This has to be one of the juiciest beers I've ever had.

This is fairly thick bodied, not quite milkshake-esque, but still pretty thick. The carbonation level is lower, I'd say.

Another perfectly awesome hop masterpiece from Trillium. (718 characters)

What an awesome presentation. Unfiltered, good amount of carbonation, intense nose that is different than most IPA's and so very, very, juicy. Makes me want more. That is possibly the biggest compliment. Would love to have it side by side with a Heady just for fun. They are obviously different styles, but both so solid. This may be my favorite IPA. (356 characters)

Outstanding. Pours a golden orange haze. Smells like a ripe clementine. Huge citrus hop flavor, finish has some bitterness, like a shot of grapefruit juice. Great mouthfeel. Smooth, heavy...I want to chew it. (208 characters)

My favorite beer of the Fort Point series. Loaded with tropic flavors, you could drink this beer for breakfast! More like an IPA than a pale ale IMO (150 characters)
