Resting on the higher end of ABV for a pale ale, this beer is crisp and smooth, teetering between light and pillowy.

Aromas of sweet tangerine, pineapple, and maybe a little mango are accompanied by a slight caramel sweetness and some spicy grass and pine.

Taste follows the nose, with a very thorough blend of tropical juicy sweetness and dank, earthy, and spicy pine. Dry and slightly bitter on the finish, but incredibly well balanced with residual fruit and spice flavours.

I've had this one a few times before, but it's about time I give it a proper review.

L- Poured into a tulip glass. These guys get a healthy amount of carb on the beers. Somewhat restrained pour yields a creamy three fingers of head that sticks to the glass. Head retention is amazing. Color is a hazy goldenrod with some pale yellow on the fringes. She's a beaut.

S- Aroma is sweet tangerine, citrus rind, pine needles, hop resin, hints of sweet tropicals (pineapple), just a touch of sweet malt. A truly spectacular bouquet on this beer. I never want to take my nose from the glass.

T- Taste is a punch of tropicals up front, finished with some mild bitterness that's really pleasant. Add to the mix some citrus (oranges, tangerines) and There's a grapefruit bitterness that lingers, but not in a way that's overwhelming. The flavor isn't as bold as the aroma, but it's still just so, so good.

F- Spot on. Smooth, creamy, not too prickly on the carbonation. Love the lingering grapefruit bitterness which coats the tongue.

O- A splendid beer that is right up there with the likes of PseudoSue (which remains my favorite). The Trillium boys know what to do with hops and I am an official fanboy of their beers. I would never turn down a chance at more.
