look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Dive Bar, Worcester, MA.

A- Draft into a goblet with a hazy golden yellow body and a inch creamy head. Good retention and tons of lacing in sheets.

S- Big hop quota in the Trillium way. Fresh citrus and stone fruits stick out with tropical, herbal and floral. Ripe mango, apricot, peach, grapefruit, zesty oranges, creamsicle and pineapple.

T- Very much more zesty and citrus forward than expected compared to the other Trillium DDH I have tried. Ruby red grapefruit, zesty fresh oranges and tangerines saturate the palate leading into hints of pineapple, apricot, mango, clementine, lime zest and melon. A bit of sweetness and a strong bitterness. Insane amount of grapefruit juice.

MF- Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Somewhat creamy and frothy with a sharp bitter finish.

A ton of grapefruit and citrus hops with fair representation of tropical, floral and dank flavors. Delicious grapefruit juice.

L - 1-finger sparse bright white head atop a milky orange body.

S - tangerine, pineapple, herb, grapefruit. Yes!

T - very tropical. More tangerine, pineapple, and grapefruit, plus melon, cotton candy, a bit of dank, a slight earthiness. Smooth middle. Low bitterness. Moderate-low sweetness. Low booziness.

F - medium body with lower than average.

O - a tad sweet but highly enjoyable otherwise.

Canned on 10/9/18

Pours a bright, deeply hazy orange with over a finger of semi-thick, pillowy white head; decent retention with fair bits of lacing trickling around the glass.

Aromas of creamy orange, candied pineapple, melon, bits of fresh grass and light, plush herbal tones; the citrus punch to this bouquet is level, pointedly hoppy, and incredibly enjoyable and easy to nose.

Taste is juicy orange, apricot, peach, guava, faint grass, light hops, and a delicate malty sweetness; consistent profile packed with citrus, tropical, hoppy, and slightly creamy notes all in the right places.

Mouthfeel brings slight creaminess, a balanced carbonation, and an excellent, bigger body that betrays itself coolly with a consistent softness on the palate throughout; light bitterness from the mid-palate to the finish adds a refreshing hop prickle.

Excellent example of balance in a NEIPA. Everything is on point, with a consistency never neglecting flavor while still maintaining a calm synchronicity with a varied mouthfeel. Never overwhelming, and the type of NEIPA I could drink repeatedly. Very well-done.

Had this on 2018-10-31 in Columbia, PA from a 16oz canned on 2018-10-09

A - Very hazy orange with a 1/3-finger white head and good lace.

S - Melon, pineapple, peach, orange, biscuit, mildly dank. Sweet and inviting.

T - Pineapple, apricot, orange, melon, biscuit, onion grass and herbal spice. Orange zest and pine bitterness in the finish is just the right amounts.

M - Medium body and light-medium carbonation. Smooth, soft, chalky and pleasantly resinous with a mild prickle at the end.

O - A step up from Melcher Street. Really a first rate brew with an aroma and flavor profile that works well for me.

Pours an opaque orange with nearly two fingers of white foam. Head retention is okay. Aroma is orange, papaya, pine, dank, and tangerine, mingling tropical fruit juice with biting Northwest hops. Wheaty, biscuity, toasty malts shine through in the middle. Flavor profile is orange, tangerine, papaya, peach, pine, and light dank. Aside from the abundant hops, wheat and biscuity malts show through. Mouth feel is lightly effervescent with a chalky, grainy texture. It has a medium viscosity. Overall, flavorful and dense, bit less juicy and smooth from other Trillium offerings.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

Looks great and smells OK but compared to DDH Fort Point this is kind of a let-down. Bought in Boston and drank fresh. Side-by-side with DDH Fort Point and DDH Stillings Street, this was the worst of the three----but still an overall great Trillium beer!

Frothy and hazy. Sweet citrus, honey, resin - juicy. Taste is sweet with tons of light malt. Grapefruit and honey. Hardly any bitterness

Legitimately one of the best IPAs I've had
