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.

I've had many different type of beers and this beer is a great IPA.. Trillium has been on point with a lot of beers and they hit it with this one.. This beer is hoppy with an unbelievable citrus taste.. If I had to compare this beer to any beer it would be Abner by Hill Farmstead.. Cheers!!!
