Possible that the new fermentation profile kind of ruined this beer for me.

Appearance: the body is a cross between baby yellow and tan. Totally opaque with haze with a 1-finger white head with good retention.

Aroma: super hoppy, but there this is an off aroma of ammonia and Windex.

Flavor: sticky lupulin that overpowers any other flavors that the hops might yield. There are no standout distinctive flavors to speak of – really just generically hoppy. There malt base is a very good start point; I’d try this beer repeatedly using different hop combinations.

Mouthfeel: medium-medium. Appropriate for style, but nothing to write home about.

Overall: the hype precedes this beer. It is good, but no beer than many unhyped NE IPAs readily available in my market (Denver). Overall, I’m not tremendously impressed.

Very solid smooth IPA. Contains Australian galaxy hops with peach Clementine fruit and pine. Didn’t think it was amazing compared to other offerings like DDH fort point but solid.

Tastes and smells like biting into a citrus fruit on a freshly cut lawn beside a copse of pine trees. Great mouthfeel, very drinkable. Enough bitterness to balance out the juiciness nicely. A stalwart in Trillium’s awesome lineup.
