4.6/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

22oz (25oz?) bottle split two ways. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy orange-ish yellow. Good head retention.

Smell: Fruity hops with a nicely pungent undercurrent. No grain around here, but the hop bouquet is quite good.

Taste: There's the balance. Lots of citrusy fruit, way more earthy/funky hop power than in the nose, with a crisp, dry finish and welcomely lively carbonation. From the first try this beer begs you to drink like 60 ounces of it.

Surprised there's no Nelson Sauvin in this, as it has that almost cheesy flavor (sort of related to the dank earthy weed element). The internet says Columbus and Citra. It has the dank I expect from both (and then some), but not really the lime/orange I expect from Citra. The cereal grain malt backbone does an admirable job fighting for some attention, and as is so often the case with these kinds of beers, that element interacts with the pungent hops to give sort of a melon-y flavor (which I love).

Lot of clean flavor here. Outstanding pale ale.

Mouthfeel: Just perfect. Light side of medium body, highish carbonation, very dry finish. Just spot on perfect for a hoppy pale ale.

Overall: Impressed by my first taste of Trillium's beer. My final thoughts on it are that if I could drink this way every day, it would be a good life.

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 ..
