Pours hazy, yellowish-tan in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is peach, mango, orange, and light grapefruit rind. Sweet with slight bitterness, medium-light bodied, with moderate carbonation. The Small Bird series is perhaps my favorite of Trillium's lines and this one follows through with their excellence. Great beach beer. I could drink this one all night. Up in the top ten percent of Trillium beers.

Pours a orange yellow haze with thick foam and sticky lacing. Notes of sweet malt, citrus, hops, and pine. The taste is full malty hops with a beautiful sweetness, toss in some dryness and bitter notes and this is one amazing APA. Full light to medium beer, very smooth and clean, another world class Trillium beer.

16oz. can into a Surly teku.

Nose is pretty mellow. A soft hop bitterness with some grapefruit notes. Beer opens bright. Hints of ruby red and citrus with a light, spritzy tartness and a subdued, bark-y hop backbone. Interesting. Drinkable. Body is light with moderate to ample carbonation. Prickly in the mouth and goes down lively and aggressive with a dry aftertaste.

The feel is the best part of this beer. Dry, drinkable and quenching.
