A-Pours a hazy yellow color that's nearing orange. A flick of the glass angers the beer and the head begins to grow. The head is a cottony mass that leaves freckles and ribbons along my glass as it quickly recedes.
S-The hops obviously take precedent. More importantly, I find the hoppy aroma(s) to be incredibly up eccentric and unique. I get an immediate, lead-off, scent of mint and evergreen. I also get some green onion and marijuana. A bit of moss as well. Some less-verbose tropical fruit smells, too.
T-Tropical fruits have tamed the zany hop aromas found in the nose. A Street's hops become much fruitier when they finally land on the tongue. Dried pineapple and mango slices. Candied citrus. The mint/evergreen does sneak back up in the finish. The malt is a half sweet/half dry mattress of support for the hop-show.
M-Not very bitter. When cold, the flavor dies off quickly; as it warms, the flavor sticks to my tongue more properly. Soft carbonation.
O-I await Trillium's hoppy beers with awkwardly bated breath. This is probably their most unique hoppy brew. Further solidifies the fact that I need to try every Trillium beer I can theoretically get my mouth around.

The beer ours some light white and bubbly head that dissipates quickly and leaves a bit of lacing. The beer itself is a honey gold and clear. The smell has some pine and floral notes with the pine notes being the strongest. The smell also has a slightly sweet malt backbone to take the edge off the hops. The beer also has a slight bready smell as well. The notes are a bit different from the smell. The pine notes are still there but are overcome with bitterness and a slight sweet malty backbone and a hint of bready yeast but the latter is very little and barely noticeable. The mouthfeel is very light for a medium bodied beer and smooth as a result. Overall, a very good IPA and surprisingly light IPA. Worth getting again.
