4.1/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A-Pours an opaque, yet glowing yellow color. Body is illuminated. Head is a frothy, clean white gathering of suds. Good retention and loads of lacing.

S-Aroma is exceedingly hoppy with strong tropical fruit notes. The combination of Amarillo, Citra and Chinook deliver a wide array of exotic, juicy fruit aromas. Also the use of wheat malt and rye malt can be detected (especially since I know it's there).

T-Flavor is nearly as dynamic as the nose. A medley of fruity hops and strong on the citrus. Very ripe and juicy. Hints of rye and wheat tail the strong hoppiness. All components play well together.

M-Very, very drinkable. The bitterness isn't over the top despite how hoppy the flavor is. My growler kicked disturbingly fast.

O/D-Another hoppy Trillium gem. They're cornering the Pale Ale market right now. Might need to go back for another fill.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

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.

The beer pours a light and bubbly white head that dissipates very quickly but leaves quite a bit of lacing behind. The beer itself is a hazy and pale gold straw with hints of orange. The smell has strong pineapple and mandarin orange notes. The smell also has a very light bready pale male smell that is easily overcome by the hops. The taste is similar to the smell with pineapple flavors mixed with other tropical fruits in addition to a grapefruit taste. The mouthfeel is fairly smooth and a little bit watery but not so much that it is bad. Rather, the feel makes it feel smoother without sacrificing the medium body. Overall, a very impressive pale ale and high quality. Trillium really knows what it's doing and it certainly shows in every one of their beers.

Great beer. Growler only at the brewery. I'd like to see this in a can doe.
