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)

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into an enlarged snifter. This was bottled 3 days ago - on 11/22/14.

Appearance: Pours a bright honey/amber and leaves a couple fingers of slightly off white head, which slowly fade to a layer atop the beer. (4.5)

Smell: Big, vibrant citrus (esp. grapefruit), pineapple, a bit of piney resin, and more citrus. Really expressive, delicious aroma. (4.75)

Taste: Earthy, resinous notes, grapefruit juice, good amount of pine & spruce, orange, some pineapple. A huge amount of different flavors, all delicious. Very drinkable and smooth, even with all the flavor. (4.75)

Mouth-feel: Medium to well carbonated with a medium, slightly creamy body. Very nice with the flavors. (4.75)

Overall: This is a delicious, hoppy brew. I love the amount of pine in the taste, and while the aroma is much fruitier, there is a bit more earthiness in the taste. Really well balanced with a terrific smell, wonderful taste and an awesome piney finish. (4.75) (970 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)

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)
