22oz bottle poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.

A - Pours a pale goldish amber color with a thin finger of white head that falls slowly leaving plenty of foamy lace on the glass.

S - Plenty hoppy on the nose. Loaded with grapefruity citrus, some pineapple and tropical fruit, peaches, a little bit sweaty, mildly sweet. Really nice.

T - Hops front and center here too...very similar to the nose. Medium hop bitterness, but loaded with flavor...lots of tropical fruit and grapefruit. Some sugary sweetness balances off the hops well.

M - Medium bodied, medium carbonation that is lightly tingly. Thick with stickiness and dominating tropical and citrusy hops.

O - Very good DIPA...better than I expected going in to it. This is definitely a fresh bottle...loaded with hops all the way thru. Hope this becomes more readily available on a regular basis.

Clear, amber color. Tropical fruit in the nose. Lots of grapefruit bitterness on the finish which dries it out. Some sweetness up front. Not a typical awesome dipa by Trillium, but far from terrible. Drinks close to Stone's Enjoy By.

It is not that good. Unbalanced, bloody abortion.

Let me start by saying that this is a very good beer. That being said, this is not the juicy balanced hop bomb that I'm used to from Trillium. Hop flavors seem a bit muted.... there's a very malty backbone, with a sharp bitterness that briefly lingers on the palate. Again, great beer, but compared to the others (Congress Street, Melcher Street, Fort Point), it's a miss.

This beer is a grower, not a shower. As it warmed, the hops seemed to open up and release a deliciously tropical and blackberry scent. The taste followed suit. When first opened, a mosaic driven hop experience dominated, which of course is great. However, there is a subtle fruity aroma that develops as the mosaic front dissipates. Perhaps not as balanced or elegantly hoppy as other beers but it's a special, interesting brew. I'll be sure to go back for more.

For a 9% DIPA, it is very boozy. And it lingers all the way through the finish. You still get that delicious trillium IPA taste, but its a bit overpowered by the alcohol. Though it is good, i think they could have done much better!
