32oz growler from 2/12/16 from Canton. $8. Cloudy yellow with small white head and strong lacing. Smells of mango and orange juice with an herbal tea finish. Flavor is very similar, with a medium-light body and healthy smooth carbonation. The hoppage comes across as super-fresh and clear in flavor. High drinkability due to the lingering pithy dryness, hindered only a little by the fact that it is so flavorful that it might get tiring after more than a couple pints.

This would be a regular if not for the $4/pint cost at home. Hopefully as they scale up production they can bring things down to under $3/pint for a 5% pale ale.

Growler filled at the Canton brewery this evening. Poured into a 12oz New City Brewery glass. After so many excellent high abv brews the last coupla weeks, looking for something a tad tamer to drink on a school night. Treecreeper was a good choice.

This one was brewed with Valley Malt malted rye (I'm a big fan of Valley Malt!), wheat, barley and Citra and Columbus according to the website.

Delicious brew in the Trillium tradition, a bit lighter, mango, citrus profile. Yep, Treecreeper's a keeper.

From 02/05/16 notes. Filled same day an hour earlier. 32 oz growlers into Trillium tulip.

Pours a murky orange pineapple juice looking with one finger of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Lots of citrus, oranges, floral notes, grapefruit, some tropical notes. Medium body and low to moderate carbonation.

Overall another winning hoppy beer from Trillium. Very easy to drink and really liked this one.

The beer comes in a vibrant hazy pale gold color.

The aroma smacks of peach, mango, pineapple, juicy orange, tangerine, doughy malts, hints of green herb.

The flavor hits of orange peel, peach/tropical bubble gum flavors, tangerine, pineapple, onto a doughy malt, hints of earthiness possibly from the rye and a really pithy aftertaste with a soft bitterness along with some grassy/leafy green flavors.

The mouthfeel is soft, while still moving along quite quickly and this beer a drinking dream.

L - Hazy orange with two fingers of white head that stuck around forever and left beautiful lacing.

S - Mango juice spread over freshly-cut grass

T - Pop of orange at the front followed by earthy qualities of the rye. A nice balance. Lemon zest, mango, some orange sherbet, and the acidity works with the earthy rye.

F - Soft like a cloud. Citra makes it refreshing it is full-bodied for a relatively low abv.

O - Refreshing, flavorful, funky, and bitter. They need to bottle this.
