Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Sticker on bottle says 091214.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch of-white head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small center patch of surface foam. Bubbly snowflake pattern of lacing sticks to the glass.

S- Sweet hop aroma with the bready malt working as a perfect template for the citrusy, grassy hops to play off of. Amarillo hops?

T- Flavor is not nearly as hoppy or bitter as the aroma would lead you to believe. The malt comes through more with its sweetness and more bread notes as the hops work as more of a balancing agent. Very tasty stuff. So drinkable, yet so flavorful.

M- Somewhat oily from the hops with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- Such a unique beer that somehow exhibits the best of both worlds in hoppy beers as it is sweet and earthy as well as citrusy and dank. Remarkable.

I am lucky enough to be in very close proximity to the Trillium Brewery and have started to grab growlers on a pretty regular basis. When I do, I always make sure to grab one of these. This is probably the best pale ale I have ever had. Blows you away with a lot of hops and citrus flavors, but never bitter. If you can try this beer you will not be disappointed, world class.

Review from notes dated 8/2/14

Cheers to Bilco for sharing this

A: Hazy honey-orange, apricot color - pours with a medium white head, fades to a few wisps, leaves some nice lacing

S: Bright with some big, potent hops - extremely hoppy without actually being aggressively hoppy - resiny, dank, wet, juicy-smelling hop cones - very fresh - extremely fruity with some juicy, tropical, and citrus aromas - tangerine, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, pine, and leafy hops - basically, a bag of hop pellets blended with some pale malts

T: Extremely hoppy without really being bitter - this is a matter of creative hop chemistry, a question of alpha acids and such - extremely flavorful, extremely drinkable - tangerine, orange flesh, ruby red grapefruit, tropical flavors, pineapple, mango - pale malts hold everything together

M: Medium body, nicely carbonated, smooth, and drinkable

O: I finally understand how someone could be obsessed with Trillium

This is the best thing I've ever had from Trillium, and it's also one of the best beers I have had in 2014. Truly a treat.
