Love the super dry finish on this. Hazy, with a chance of juicy, a low amount of bitterness with a super dry finish makes me a happy Trillium drinker.

World-class indeed! Beautiful complexity, a flavor dance both juicy and bitter. Gorgeous hazy look in the glass, a grapefruit smell the second you pop the top. An eye-closer on every sip.

Smell: This is an attack of Pineapple right away. Pineapple juice, fresh pineapple. After all the pineapple more tropical fruit comes along. It is reminiscent of a tropical stone fruit cocktail. Mango, papaya, peach, pear. It’s has like a liquified sugary syrup note that really helps hammer home that canned fruit cocktail thing. A touch of really sweet juicy mandarin oranges. Also a really bright note of zesty grapefruit and white bread crust. The beer smells ridiculously good!

Taste: The beer follows the nose with a tidal wave of pineapple just bombarding my taste buds. There is also some mango, peach, and pear that follows behind all that pineapple. The tropical and stone fruit notes transition into the mid palette. This liquified sugar and honey sweetness shows up and helps bring back that fruit cocktail thing that was picked up on the nose. There is also a really faint note of white bread crust. As the beer moves into the finish it let’s you know it is a beer. More grapefruit zest and orange peel come through then the nose leads on and adds a noticeable bitterness. Also there is a good amount of grassiness and some of that hop burn that is present sometimes in Trillium beers. That hop burn lingers a bit in the aftertaste and takes away from this beer some. But overall this taste really good.

Feel: Medium bodied. With a light to moderate amount of creaminess. The beer is crisp on the tongue as well. Also this has a really long finish with all the flavors the beer has to offer just lingering on the tongue. The long finish takes away from the drink ability a little bit, but that’s not something that really matters.

Overall: This is a borderline world class beer. The hop burn in the finish is what’s holding me back some and takes it away from being a top, top level beer. The hop burn is something I get sometimes in trillium beers for some reason. Still this is a great beer that I would drink anytime it was offered to me.

A - Pours a turbid orange with a one finger fizzy white head. Nice amount of soay lacing.

S - Aroma is orange, pineapple and mango.

T - The taste is orange, mango, pineapple, apricot and some light resinous hops.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft crisp finish.

O - Another amazing ipa from Trillium. The flavors are a perfect balance of bright and juicy citrus and resinous hops.
