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.

Bottle got in a recent IP trade, thanks Isaac.

This one pours essentially like orange juice, so orange and bright, basically opaque, with a half inch fizzy head, and tons of really nice looking lacing.

Smells pungently hoppy, like sticking your face into a bag of hops. Orange, peach, and mango puree, so fruity and nice.

The taste follows the aroma. It's a classic New England IPA- insane fruity hop flavor with minimal hop bitterness. This is dank as they come- tastes a bit like orange juice-soaked weed. There's very little bitterness, with the malt providing only a candied sweetness to the hop flavors.

This is medium bodied, with a crisp, juicy mouthfeel, and moderate level of carbonation.

This is a superb example of the new sort of IPA coming out of New England. It's on the level of the best from Vermont.
