Good head for a bar pour. Leaves some ring lace. Head settles to the rim. Gold color and hazy.

Citrus aroma with a bit of evergreen. There's malt but it's definitely a subordinate smell.

Dry and well-balanced. Starts with pale malt, but finishes strongly bitter. Long aftertaste that resembles a hop pellet. Neutral body, but highly carbonated.

A-Pours a fairly clear golden hue. Decent head. Frothy, white foaminess. Light lacing and good retention.

S-Hoppy first and foremost. Herbal and piney hops. A nice dose of tropical hops as well. Subtle, zesty yeast character. More IPA thanSaison here.

T-A glorious hoppiness. Pine, herbs, concentrated grapefruit. Pungent hoppiness. Very light Belgian yeastiness with a rustic quality to it. But this is mostly all about the hops.

M-Nice, dry bitterness. Drinks well with an agreeable body and the booze is quiet.

O/D-Another great Trillium brew. More IPA than anything else and I cannot complain about that!

Filled: 9/25
Drunk: 9/27

Appearance:
The beer pours a nice white and creamy head that does not last long. The beer itself is a dark and clear brownish amber that leaves white lacing on the side.

Smell:
A much stronger and different hop presence than what is found in most farmhouse ales. The hops are more floral and grapefruit/citrusy as opposed to earthy.

Taste:
Taste almost like the beer smells. The hop presence is strong and has a more grapefruit taste with a slight sweetness. However, the beer also has an earthiness that underlies the entire experience and aftertaste.

Mouthfeel:
Light, biting carbonation and medium body. The body is fairly smooth with a somewhat dry finish.

Overall:
Technically, the Dry Stack is a Farmhouse ale/IPA hybrid and it really shows in its taste and smell with an increased hop presence. I thought that this was a very good combination even though the beer was a bit more on the IPA side.
