11/2014 - Wow, this is amazing; incredible aromas of peach, dank hops, fruit poppin'! Mildly sweet, hoppy, zesty, fruity too flavors on the palate; so good and balanced.

Got a pour into a growler, so very very fresh.

Pours a rich orange gold color, fully opaque with a two finger off-white head that leaves sporadic lacing

Aroma is dense and pungent with tangy citrus notes. This is pretty intense and rockin'

Taste is also very strong with up-front citrus hops that blast the tongue. The flavors turn into a more measured excellent citrus taste with a sweet base behind it. Bitterness is fairly weak.

Feel is very soft and lightly sticky.

This is just a fantastic beer - not sure I can call it a Pale Ale with a 6.6% alcohol and such a full flavor. This is just an awesome variant on Fort Point which is already a great beer from Trillium. Really worth the high ratings.

Trillium can't seem to do wrong in my eyes. Fort Point is my favorite base beer, and galaxy is one of my favorite hops so this was a match made in heaven for me.

Theres just something about trillium beers and this one is not exception. They call it a Pale and that's definitely up for debate. But whats not up for debate, is the notation that this is a world class brew! Because it is! The Galaxy dry hop on this beer gives it an extra does of that New Zealand Spiciness while at the same time delivering distinct tropical notes and trillium's yeast strain helps to add a dry snappy finish. It's an amazing beer worthy of your seeking.
