Our flagship American IPA highlights the distinctively aromatic Australian Galaxy hop. The nose bursts with pine, citrus rind, melon and pineapple. Pronounced flavors of peach, clementine, and tropical fruits are accentuated with moderate bitterness and balanced by a light, biscuity malt character.

MALT: American 2-row Barley, White Wheat, C-15, Dextrine, Dextrose

Canned on 7/19/23

A: Pours with a near opaque cloudiness. A dense white head rises with good retention and lace. Manageable to pour if you go slow.
S: Some sweet fruits, most people are saying pineapple. Sure, I guess I can go with that. I don't know if these kinds of NEIPA's overwhelm me to a point were I just can't pick anything out, cause I don't get near the expressive fruity/hops aromas as others. Its just vaguely there.
T: Yep, sweet and fruity. Like store bought Dole juice to me. I don't get anything in the finish, but some hop burn...or alcohol can't figure it out...
M/O: I guess I can't be too hard, but just muddled to me. Low carbonation, sticky sweet, no finish, some kind of astringency. Either from hop burn or alcohol burn. This is going to be a chore to finish.

Every once in a while, I like to revisit styles I'm not the biggest fan of, especially when a hyped brewery pops up in my area. To see if or how my tastes change. Well, this is a style I have yet to really enjoy. Some will say "don't review styles you don't like" but I'm just trying to see what everyone but me seems to like...oh well.

Poured with a soft thick head comprised of tiny bubbles, like steamed milk for a latte. Nose is all Galaxy - pineapple, peach, citrus and rind as well as hints of melon. Trillium seems to have a knack for highlighting melon notes from several different hops, and melon is in the foreground in the taste, which is fruity but not sweet, with a nice gentle bitterness on the finish.

Pours like a mix of lemon and orange juice, nicely hazy with a soft pillowy head. Honestly the nose didn't match the beer, a little yeasty and muddy. Lots of citrus notes but not overly sweet so it had a nice balance. An exemplary hazy ipa, one that is equally drinkable and cherishable.
