Probably the best DDH NEIPA I have tried to date, and although I may not have tried everything under the sun that still includes quite a bit of the best!! So incredibly well-balanced, amazing smell and perfect feel and finish. Bought in Boston and drank fresh.

finally got my lips on this one, an extra hopped version of their now famous pale ale, and its predictably awesome. the thing about this, and about so many of the dry hoppy trillium beers really, is that they seem to know when to stop, and in some ways, i like this as much for what it isnt as i do for what it is. its not green and vegetal and forced, over saturated, harsh, or bitey, and that alone makes it better than so many others out there in this style right now. soft yellow even light greenish in color, its muted looking, thin, and nicely bubbly. it smells awesome, citra all over this, but not modern day citra, like citra when it first came into vogue and nobody could get enough of it, so distinctive and fresh, lemony and lemongrassy, with a beautiful freshness to it that almost is as relevant as the aroma it contributes. light green tea, a softly starchy but dry grain base, and a level of refinement evident that i am not used to in these. the flavor is as good as the nose, pineapple and honeydew and lemon zest all come to mind, but this isnt intense for all the dry hops it has, they seem so well integrated, not just on the surface but fundamental to what this is, and that is rare. light bitterness at the end but enough for this to appear balanced. awesome carbonation makes it feel really light, and the grain base is dry and simple but rustic enough to contribute something, and i really like that with the juicy hops in here. a really worthy beer, highly acclaimed and for good reason.

Truly excellent well balanced and smooth double dry hopped pale ale. Salad hands of Citra with fruit flavors as well. Great aroma. Extremely well balanced beer and drink at 6.6%.

I'm a huge fan of Trillium's higher gravity DIPAs and wasn't sure what to expect with a Pale Ale DDH, but I am very impressed. Great nose and look, very juicy in flavor and scent. The mouth feel is very light compared to their larger ABV offerings, but it bursts with flavor through to the end of the glass. A great beer at an attractive price point!

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at the Trillium Brewery in Canton for about twenty dollars. Very solid brew, one of my favorite from these guys, would buy again.

05/2015 - An absolutely incredible, juicy, fruity, dank, spritzy, delicious Fort Point variation. It's a bit danker, bolder, yet juicier version of its younger brother.
