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

Pours a hazy yellow, with fine, white foam.

Smell is juicy and tropical, big whallop of pineapple and some apricot marmalade.

Taste is perfectly balanced, nice hop bite and loads of tropical fruits, mainly pineapple and a bit of citrus.

Mouthfeel is soft and pillowy.

Overall, a great NE IPA. Juicy and insanely drinkable.

Excited, Nelson heavy IPA from Trillium, canned 5 days ago, 8/25/16!

Pours a decent fizzy bubbly 1/2 finger head that fades at a med pace, wish it was a bit bigger, murky milk shake tangerine orange color.

Nose nice musty lemony grassy tropical fruits, nice floral, musty fruit with a little citrusy, musty vinous white wine, crisp white wine, grape skin, floral hop.

Taste brings more musty grape skins, musty mild dankness, with some faint tropical notes, guava maybe, but lots of grape, a vinous white version of concord grape, and a mild citrus tangerine almost orange thing, lemony even, plenty floral as well, juicy grape orange juice, crisp white grape thing, etc. Finish is drier with fair bitterness, nice mild tropical musty note, more grape skin vinous notes, and little floral lingering.

Mouth is med bod, fluffy carb.

Overall note bad, nice Nelson vinous grape skin, nice and juicy, some decent tropical and touch of citrus, floral, etc, good malt balance, good carb, just a little light on the head maybe the only downfall.

As always, thanks a whole lot Kevin.

A- The signature tallboy pours a very hazy, almost murky golden-orange brew into a goblet. Rising atop the brew is a thick and creamy white cap that peaks at about one finger high showing off good retention. A few webs of thin lace.

S- Nelson hops showcased dominating the aroma with medium overall strength. The vinous grapes, berries, onion and citrus zest is really strong with hints of kiwi, herbs, tropical fruits, strawberry and floral things.

T- Rather sharp and bitter as the Nelson hops carry over from the aroma and actually open up a bit more for me with the tropical fruits coming out a bit more in the form of mango and peach. Vinous white grapes are massive with lemon zest, bitter ruby red grapefruit, dry berries, pineapple, lemongrass, oranges and onion comes to mind. Really not much to say about the malt and yeast, just a base formed here.

MF- Creamy and moderately thick body with high end carbonation. Luscious and almost chewy. Ends with a sharp bitterness.

Nelson hops all over the palate with a good but not amazing aroma as the strength feels somewhat subdued. Expect those vinous grapes, bitter citrus, herbs and tropical fruits with a great creamy body.

From a growler..Pours hazy, orange-yellow in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is big peach, with tangerine, white grape and light cracker. Medium-heavy bodied, slightly bitter and super juicy, with moderate carbonation. This is in the upper tier of Trillium IPAs. Delicious, I could drink this all afternoon. Stands out even in Trillium's excellent lineup of IPAs.

Sharing with Brian. Very good IPA, full of citrus and fruity flavour. Crushable beverage. Hazy orange look. Clean aroma. Above average smooth mouthfeel.

Pretty good representation of the hop. Hazy pour. Super dank. Great aroma, little bit more complexity than their other pales and ipas. Little heavy on the mouthfeel. Very little bitterness. Gets a little better as it opens up a bit. One of my favorites from these guys.

Pours like a beautiful glass of Orange Juice. Hazy golden in color with a rich head and thick lacing. Big notes of lemon, orange zest, hops, floral, and some sweetness like honey. The taste is just out of this world, my first east coast IPA and this juice bomb is all that it is supposed to be and more. Ultra smooth goodness, loads of orange, lemon, grapefruit, sweetness from floral/honey, some minor bitterness and a ultra clean finish. This is a very light to medium IPA with more flavor than I can describe, one of my top beers to date, awesome.

16oz. can into a Surly teku.

Nose is citrus, clementine and other orange varietals. Beer opens almost a bit onion-y. Hints of citrus, pine, grass and starfruit also. Soft with a big malt body and a sticky, onion-y hop presence. Not so much bitter as un-sweet. Body is light with moderate to low carbonation. Smooth in the mouth and soft on the palate. Real nice. Finishes slightly dry and clean.

The flavor profile of this one is a little strange but the feel more than makes up for it. A real nice drinking IPA.

Poured from a 16 ounce can into a Dogfish Head IPA glass.

Look - Orange with all the pulp that has a one-finger head that slowly dissipates.
Smell - Citrus fruit, pineapple, mango
Taste - The smells really come through in the taste with an oat finish
Feel - Very smooth, slightly bitter at the end but doesn't linger in your mouth
Overall - All the "Street" beers that I have had from Trillium have been incredible. A ton of hop flavor but doesn't overwhelm.
