Notes / Commercial Description:
We learned that the Cellarmaker Brewing crew also like piƱa coladas while we were all getting caught in the rain together at this summer's Field Trip. Afterwards we got together to mix-up a cocktail-inspired beer perfect for planning your tropical getaway. Escape Plan draws inspiration from some of our favorite Tiki drinks, known for their vibrant mix of fresh juices, layered flavors, and tropical accents.

Escape Plan pours an amber orange color with deeply milky haze. The nose is lively with bright aromas of orange blossom, lime zest and cream of coconut. Blended passion fruit takes the lead while deep waves of freshly juiced orange and pineapple inundate the palate and highlights of smooth vanilla and nutty almond accentuate the creamy mouthfeel. A touch sweet and sour, Escape Plan has a medium body and a imperceptibly low level of bitterness.

MALT: Honey Malt, Pale Malt, Flaked Oats

HOPS: Hop Extract

This one pours a super juicy and thick looking orange color, like a melted smoothie, with a small white head, and not much lacing.

There's like a hundred "adjuncts" in this. Not all of them come through on the aroma, and this doesn't smell anything like beer. There's tons of Sunny D, pineapple creamsicle, lime, coconut, etc. I don't get almond or passionfruit. The lactose and vanilla come through a little bit.

Again, there's basically no beer flavor here at all, and it's interestingly not sour at all. I want more coconut, but it's there a little bit. I also want more lime, or any almond. It's mostly orange and pineapple, and comes across as alcohol Sunny D, with some tropical tones. It's definitely Tiki drink like.

This is thick and super juicy, like drinking actual juice. There's a decent level of carbonation and a very high level of drinkability.

This is a fun beer, but it's honestly a little bit ridiculous. This is a far from beer as you can get while still technically being beer.

Solid sour ale with lactose orange lime coconut passion fruit, pineapple, almond, and vanilla. Taste was extremely unique and earthy but very good. Solid beer. One of the best at Trillium.

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Trillium Brewing Company, Boston, MA
Canned on 09/21/18
Served in a tulip

Pretty crazy appearance. The beer poured a completely opaque, murky yellow-orange and looked just like a glass of thick, pulpy orange juice. There was no head or lacing whatsoever.

The nose was really insane. Super tropical and bright. Passionfruit notes dominated. Lots of tangy lime as well. Hint of pineapple and zesty orange peel. Touch of sweetness.

The flavor profile followed the nose but contained more tartness and acidity. Tropical fruits came through big time. Strong passionfruit notes. Loads of zesty lime peel. Some lemon peel too. Tangerine and pineapple appeared in the center. Moderately sweet. There was a subtle, creamy, lactose-like quality as well. More tartness and acidity on the back end and in the finish. The lemon peel notes lingered after the swallow.

Nice creamy and slick mouthfeel. Frothy and smooth on the palate. The liquid contained a fine, zippy effervescence that fluffed up nicely.

While I picked up absolutely no coconut, almond or vanilla in this beer, the other adjuncts came through big time. This is quite an intense, fruit-infused sour ale that was perfect for what may have been the last 80 degree day of the year.

16oz can dated 9/19/18.

Pours viscous, murky orange with a protein-rich head of beige. Zero retention or lacing. Funky fruit and slightly fowl in the nose with hints of cloves and mint. Full bodied with a slick, oily mouthfeel. Quite sour on the palate with plenty of ripe, juicy fruit. Pineapple, orange and fruit cocktail syrup. Finishes lactic and extremely fruity.

A rich, weird beer. One would be perfect to share.
