Thanks goes out to MastaaaGrillaaa for this brew, from NBS BIF#6

16 oz. Can
Canned On: 23-AUG-17

Poured into a Trillium glass a very nice cloudy yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus white head, which also leaves some very nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a very nice citrus complex (orange, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, mango, apricot), with some nice diesel like. The taste is very nice hoppy, malty, with a really nice citrus complex (orange, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, mango, apricot), nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very tasty brew. Addictive! Orange Juilus! Milkshake!. Glad to have gotten a chance to try it.

L- beautiful creamy, hazy, opaque, juice.
S- lots of pineapple, tropical fruit, peach, floral hops.
T- smell plus a good amount of Spice and bitterness, ganging up on the tastebuds on the back of the tongue.
F- heavy and juicy, the spice lingers on the palate.
O - I don't have too much experience with Trillium, but man do they cram a lot of hops into this thing. Straight hop juice. A wonderful, top tier beer, but when compared to Treehouse, this beer is bitter and spicy to the point of tiring the palate. My tongue is all jacked up on hops and it lacks the balance and smoothness of the house.
