64 oz growler to the dome - call it the cure for the common government shutdown

Not really sure what to say here... This beer is incredibly delicious. I think a slightly thicker mouthfeel would make this perfect. Epic combo of tropical fruitiness and piney resinous characters. On par with most of the great Vermont IPA's that people are so crazy about. Go get some! Cheers!

Thank you SuperHop18 for this amazing extra! Pours a hazy, gold color with a thick 2 finger head with great retention. Lots of tropical fruit on the nose with hints of pine resin. Fruity on the tongue with great bitterness and just enough malt to balance it out nicely. Medium bodied with good carbonation.
Overall, this is as close to a textbook IPA as I have ever had! Well balanced and expertly crafted, outstanding work Trilium Brewing.

750 ml bottle into a glass

A - Yellow-orange, thick, creamy head

S - Lovely citrus hoppy aroma

T - Follows the nose, excellent

M - So nice and creamy for an IPA, a real change of pace

O - this is one of the best IPAs I've had, not quite the best, but this is probably in the top 10. Will seek this out again.
