The beer pours a very white and bubbly head that dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is a clear pale straw color with a little bit of haze. Also leaves quite a bit of lacing. The beer has a very tropical smell with a nice floral smell. The main notes are a zest lemon and pineapple. The taste is slightly different than the smell. The taste still has the lemon notes but also notes of grapefruit and citrus flavor. The mouthfeel is fairly crisp and light for an IPA. My guess is the lack of malts. Biting carbonation. Overall, a pretty good IPA and worth getting. A little hop forward for my tastes but nice nonetheless.

Another neat IPA from Trilium, Congress St was phenomenal, so hopefully this at least pulls it's weight. Filled last night.
Pours a nice fizzy slight creamy 1finger head that fades at a med rate, mostly smaller bubbles popping, nice notched rings of messy and soapy lacing, quite hazy tangerine orange beer with a big column of bubbles rising up from the bottom.
Nose is more of a traditional IPA, floral hops, a little pine note, some citrus and orange peel, mild spicy note, this seems more of a cascade centennial and other of the C's hops, touch of a grapefruit splash, and even a little pith. Then mild sweet malts, fairly basic malt aroma. As it goes and warms, I start to get some tangerine citrus, little clementine orange, and it just gets more citrusy and fruity.
Taste again comes on with the basic American IPA, floral zesty hops, with a little flowery hop note, but more citrus and fruit again. A little rind bitterness, some grapefruit pith, plenty of tangerine like juicy citrus and some straight up orange juice with pulp bitterness. hops get a little spicy towards the back end, and a touch of pine and earthy flavors. Malts are fluffy and a bit creamy, mild sweetness, little grainy and toasty blond malt like characters. I'm starting to get a little melon rind from the hops as well as it finishes, fairly dry but sticky finish, with a huge acceleration of bitterness as the hops just take off, lots more tangerine and orange juice, with more spicy hops really dominating for a long finish, and a faint booze warmth.
Mouth is med bod to a bit fuller bod, slight creamy and fluffy, decent carb, hint of booze warmth in the background.
Overall not bad, more traditional IPA, probably a lot of the C's style hops, cascade based hops, with some of the newer ones added to it, but not a ton of the highly sought after ones at least. Still pretty tasty and enjoyable, nice bitterness although gets a little rough on the finish.
