Poured from a can into a tulip glass, looks like straight orange juice with a good foamy head. The nose is full of tropical fruit and not much else. The flavor doesn't stray much from the nose, tons of fruit flavor with a slight amount of bitterness to keep it from being too sweet. The feel is smooth with a little bite. This beer lives up to the hype of both its rating and the brewery. Keep making amazing beers!

Another brilliant hop-bomb from Trillium. More astringent than expected. Beautifully thick body with a classic resinous hop presence. Faint pineapple and underripe mango.

On tap at Brewskival.

Pours a hazy orange, with nice, white foam.

Smell is tropical as hell, with a punch of mango that hits you square in the face

Taste is intensely tropical, wth straight mango juice meeting up with just a perfect level of hop bite and bitterness. Some tiny slivers of vanilla also hang around. Perfection.

Mouthfeel is soft and pillowy, good level of carbonation.

Overall, just a superb beer, so tasty and so easy to just devour.

Canned on 8/14. Pours the color and haziness of orange juice with a thin, orange-white head. I can't lie: it looks weird, but I know this is what Trillium does. Smell is wonderfully fruity--oranges, mangoes, pineapple, and a faint malty character. Sweetness in the nose from both the fruit and the malt. Taste is just as fruity--mango is the strongest, and there's a hoppy bite to it as well. Malt balances it well and keeps it from breaching into IPA territory. Feel is smooth, lightly carbonated, and slightly sticky. This is a spectacular beer, and a great take on my favorite style.
