Had this on 2021-05-30 near Pittsburgh, PA from a 16oz canned on 2021-02-22

A - Murky straw/gold with a 1-finger white head that drops quickly leaving very little lace.

S - Massive fresh pineapple, papaya, lime, mint and grassy/herbal spice.

T - Mélange of tropical fruit (including coconut) and grassy/herbal/vegetal gooey hop bud. Towards the finish there's some fresh orange juice and mint that appear alongside the not-very-bitter hop bomb goodness. There some alcohol sweetness but no burn.

M - Medium-full body and light-medium carbonation. Fairly dry finish but some citrus sweetness remains, which I'm enjoying.

O - Not a typical NEIPA but more like a DIPA. The coconut is a surprise. There's very little aspirin/yeast flavors that I get in many NEIPA and while there's some here, these flavors are very subdued. It leans towards a non-malty West Coast DIPA enough to please my senses. It's very good and worth checking out.

Looks like an OH/Trillium collab, a golden, allllllmost transparent hazy orange, with a sudsy head that settles down rather quickly. Smells if very faint, but somewhere, deep in there, I can sense a little sweet orange/citrus zest. Taste is... bland and bitter. Body is watery and equally disappointing. Maybe this one didn't survive the trip across the country, or maybe this batch wasn't as good as the first. I heard good things about this beer, but it just didn't do much for me.

L - 1.5 finger dense yellowish head atoo a cloudy yellow body.

S - orange, sweet candy. Rather faint.

T - orange candies, tree sap, rubbing alcohol, biscuit, caramel. Moderate bitterness. Moderate-low sweetness. Moderate booziness.

F - medium-full body with average carb.

O - looks and feels the part, but this is one harsh, abrasive-tasting hodgepodge of an ipa.

Looks light golden in color, hazy but not thick. A little head retention minimal lacing
Smell is otherworldly, dank weed, overripe fruits, floral.
Taste follows smell. Some bitterness but it’s walloped by ripe fruit and jasmine.
Feels smooth as butter.
Figured it be hard to go wrong here and this did not disappoint. One of my fav 5th anniversary beers on tap today at OH.

Poured a very cloudy orange color with very little head that disappeared quickly. The nose has a good balance of fruits and malt with light floral notes. Very juicy with a good amount of bitterness to finish it of. The feel is a little thicker than medium with medium carbonation. Great complex beer with tons of malt backbone to stand up to the juicy, dank, bitter hops! Amazing collaboration.

I'm not a huge fan of OH. Some brews are excellent others just average and for what you have to do to get them its not my thing. I do have friends that get some and share and when I heard they were teaming up with Trillium I had to get some and damn was I glad I did. Such a tasty brew. Super juicy - not quite Treehouse juicy but just right and oh so smooth and full of flavor. I just wish they made more. Stellar brew.

Hazy orange with a short lived fizzy head. Orange and pineapple on the nose. Orange grapefruit on the palate. Nice medium to full mouthfeel, good carbonation, and a nice dry bitter clean lasting finish! Thanks Jared.
