look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

32 oz mini growler was poured into two pint glasses.

Appearance: This beer poured a good size head that reduced to a thin layer and left some nice lacing on the glass. It is a hazy pale orange with some clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Floral, citrus, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, tropical, grassy, and pine with some bready and pale malts in the rear. It's like a symphony of aromas for my nose to smell.

Taste: Intense hop flavor. Pretty much what was mentioned above is true with the malts and bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Tingly bitterness, tart, medium bodied, medium carbonation, chewy notes, and some chalkiness in the rear.

Overall: You can't go wrong. Growler or draft and both have been solid. Speaking of growlers, this mini needs to get filled.

This beer has a nice dark golden look to it... Trillium just happen to be a random brewery I visited ... It turned out to diamond in the rough.. I had no idea about Trillium.. Soon as you walk into the brewery you can smell the hops.. It was jammed packed in there.. I tried this beer out and WOW!!! Probably thee best beer I ever tried, certainly one of them.. This is a mouthful and the hops smell so nice .. Great great Beer!! This will be in the top 100 soon...

I just had another growler.. This time it was different.. Everything as far as taste was the same but you can barely feel the alcohol ..
