TRILLIUM “Dialed up” (11%) 5/5

So, on a luxurious day as this: Why don’t we just kickstart another trip to the top of the hops?

Noticeably more dark in color, very yellow and murky this is as promising as ever… Pours a small, beautiful head. The nose is caramellish fresh fruityness. Sets the mood for the event of the year that is coming up later this week: MBCC. (Giving great challenge to any IPA’s there too!)

Taste is absolutely splendid, those ABV’s perfectly hidden, blended in with a noticeable hoppy sting of delicacy. This is what an perfect IPA tastes like! Fresh and bubbly, medium-bodied, with such smooth deep sweet notes. Hints of sharon fruit/passion fruit, smooth bitterness and elegant aftertaste.

One word sums up this thrill of a hop juice: Astonishing

Shout out to Westum!
