The beer pours some decent white and foamy head that dissipates quickly and leaves lacing on the side. The beer itself is a fold and hazy yellow. The beer is almost opaque but you can still movement behind it. The beer smell has a slight sweet orange smell and a musty, earthy smell as well that is typical of saisons. The beer taste is similar to the smell but hoppier and closer to a saison than an ipa. The hop notes are sweeter and resemble a sweet orange and the other hop notes taste like grapefruit. The contrast is nice because the sweetness takes a bit of the grapefruit edge off. The beer also has a The beer taste has a grapefruit aftertaste. The beer is medium bodied but on the lighter side. The beer is very smooth with a little bit of texture and goes down easy. Overall, a pretty good Farmhouse IPA.

A-Pours a foggy, yet glowing orange hue. The head is a dense layer of tight bubbles with a frothier top. Webby lacing.

S-Hop forward like all the other Dry Stack brews by Trillium. This one gives me a bunch of candied citrus and even some green onion hops. Hops are also spicy. I get a Belgian yeastiness as well that reminds me of sweet cloves.

T-The flavor is more dynamic and intense than the nose. It has similar traits and descriptors but it really pounces on the palate. Candied citrus hops, candied Belgian yeast, green onion hops. Finishes with a spicy hoppiness and a textured, rich, bread crust malt.

M-Bitter, slightly astringent. Medium bodied. A bit of heat. Soft carbonation.

O-Not my favorite Dry Stack but still tasty. Maybe I'm not super enamored with the hops used here. I have had much success with the Dry Stack series in the past and this one, while not the best, is a cool addition.
