When brewed/released? Rotating beer (they basically all are).

What's on the Website: "An intensified version of Scaled and the latest addition to our line-up of aromatic, juicy IPA's. The secondary dry hop of El Dorado and Citra results in an enhanced nose of citrus. pineapple, and wet earth. The flavor brings intense lime, refreshingly pithy bitterness and just a touch of toasted malt. Medium bodied with a dry finish." Read more here!

Appearance (5%): Poured hazy light orange to peach-colored into a pint glass. White head. 4.5/5

Smell (25%): Intense citrus. Passion fruit, orange, tangerine. Some dank/earthy notes. Magical. 5/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose. Dank and resiny at the start, but boatloads of explosive tropical after that. Yet another highly successful IPA. The epitome of a New England-style IPA. 5/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Some dry tongue, but mainly juicy tropical. Some resinous citrus bitterness lingers. 4.5/5

Overall (20%): A world-class IPA. All the Trillium IPAs I've had so far have been epic; the tough part has been picking my favorite. Even for me, I look back at Congress Street and Mettle, and I wonder if those should even be rated higher than what I gave it. It's that good. Dangerous and delicious. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.875/5
