Scaled Way UpScaled Way Up
Notes: Scaled Way Up features heavy doses of Galaxy, Mosaic, and Nelson Sauvin in multiple dry hops. Straddling the aromatic line between dank/earthy and sweet/fruity. The flavor profile is jammy and fruit forward, consisting of candied peach and orange notes, and has powerful, sticky resin on the palate. Light in body with a bold bitterness upfront and crisp, bone-dry finish, Scaled Way Up is explosively aromatic.

MALT: Pilsner, White Wheat, Flaked Wheat, Dextrine, Dextrose, C-15

HOPS: Galaxy, Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin, Columbus

No age on this one, filled in a growler on 3/12/20. I believe it's 3-4 weeks since brewing.

Pours a nearly completely opaque golden yellow straw with a finger of creamy head that dissipated rather quickly. Big nose of mango, dried peach, candied ruby grapefruit, cara cara orange, slight bubblegum, pineapple, over-ripened apricot and Portuguese sweet bread. Just bursting with a sweet candied tropical fruit aroma, love it. Tons of flavor on first sip, all the notes of the nose melded together well with an addition of over-ripe papaya, slight dankness, honeydew melon and a little bit of pine resin. I'm so glad I got a 64oz growler of this one! So good! Wonderful soft, slightly resin-y medium body but I kinda wish it had just a tiny bit more fullness. Medium- bitterness, medium drying, medium- prickly carbonation.. Today was my first time on jury duty and I'm glad I stopped by Trillium for this one, I can't think of a better brew to relax with after a long day.

On tap at Bayberry Beer Hall in RI, pours a murky hazed yellow, small white head that fades fast

The smell is incredible here, an overload of papaya, banana, pineapple, orange and mango, just the lightest hop bite to back it up

The taste is a bit of a letdown compared to the aroma but still awesome. I get piney, resinous hops, a light florality, very tropical

The feel is nice and prickly, pretty highly carbonated and drinks medium bodied

Some pretty amazing stuff right here, super easy drinking but still really interesting

A: Poured from the can into a tulip glass. Body is hazy yellow-golden with a small white head.

S: Big nose of hops - earthy & fruity (pineapple, blueberries) hops.

T: Bright, juicy pineapple with lemony blueberries and an earthy dankness. Touch of white wine (Nelson is in the house). Finishes with modest heat felt in the belly but not on the palate.

M: Creamy/juicy in feel, medium in heft.

O: Good stuff.

Thanks to yllib for fresh can.
Super thick hazy appearing. Dark yellow.
Creamy head. Minimal lacing.
Standard tropical hop aromas.
Standard tropical hop tastes. Some citrus and wine notes in there. Some dankness for good measure.
Good mouthfeel, but there’s a significant hop burn going down. I think they went too far with the dry-hopping. Instead of bitter taste they accentuated the throat burning effect.
To me an average to below-average hazy, in a giant sea of average hazies.
I’m shocked that it was rated this well actually. I can only attribute it to hazy hype and/or rewarding for pushing the limits.

L: bright yellow/orange. Attractive

S: slightly earthy and very fruity, nectarine skin and peach flesh and orange juice.

T: had Fresh on draft the day it was canned, picked up a lot of hop burn and bitterness, almost An unenjoyable amount. 3 weeks later, the can I’m enjoying still exhibits sharp bitterness and not much else. There is zero subtly here, and yes I know the point is to scale things “way up”, but this literally hits just one hop-burn note. Disappointing for sure

F: more balanced than some recent trillium offerings, not as sticky sweet with this one

O: ehhh, not worth the hype at all, like so much of what trillium offers nowadays

Bottled 4/8/16; drank 4/21/16 @ Harvest Hop Haus.

Opaque yellow appearance.

Small, noisy white head; strong lace.

Pineapple, mango & faint ganja notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Pineapple juice flavor up front; dry grass & soda water bite on the finish. No booze heat.

Refreshing & simple; this would be perfect on a hot summer day.
