A deep straw pour with a thin head but nice lacing. A sweet hop scent leads to a balanced citrus and grapefruit taste. Mild bitterness. The alcohol is well masked, nombooziness. Solid.

Glowing yellow color with a tremendous amount of haze to it. Is this a wheat beer? Looks like it. Solid white head almost 1/3". Tons of tropical fruit and grapefruit on the nose. Super dank and impressive.

Taste just keeps the fruit flavors coming without any degree of grating bitterness. Peach and soft pink grapefruit along with tropical vibe. Super dry, conceals alcohol well, hops shine. This is just super elite 1st tier double ipa stuff.

I want to hate trill farmstead, but damn if they don't serve up some awesome stuff.

Poured from a month old growler that a friend picked up at the brewery. Light golden, hay colored DIPA. Great hop aroma with a little more bitterness than expected. This may have sat a little too long, but was still very good
