Trillium Scaled Up

What the brewers say

“Featuring aromatic Galaxy, Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin, and Columbus, Scaled Up emits dank, spicy aromas that lead into fruity, citrusy flavors of peach and orange. Scaled Up finishes dry and smooth with a pleasant bitterness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A nice blend of citrus and dank. Up front are mango, orange, pineapple, and blood orange. Moderate dank hops, with notes of pine, diesel, onion, and pot. On the back end, you catch some floral—iris and baby’s breath.”

Flavor: “Moderately sweet and bitter, with a blend of fruity and earthy hops. Lots of orange, mango, and tangerine. Dank, piney hops along with notes of resin, onion, grass, and cat. As the beer warms, the sharper flavors emerge, with the pine and resin rounding out the back end.”

Overall: “This beer is like a booze-soaked Hawaiian cocktail, with a bit of dank hops to balance. It’s intense but enjoyable, with the bitterness and alcohol playing off each other for more bitterness. A big, bold beer with a healthy blend of flavors that cross the spectrum of hops flavors from fruity to dank.”
