Thanks for the can Kevin!

A- Tallboy into a tulip with an incredibly muddy and murky, hazy golden body more like a milkshake than a beer, at least in the past. A one finger cap forms with a foamy texture up to about half a cm high. Fair head retention and lacing is just found in a few spots after the head dies out completely.

S- An absolutely massive hop aroma with citrus up front and tropical fruits beyond that with floral and pine notes hanging in the backdrop. When it comes down to it this aroma is basically orange juice with hints of grapefruit, dank herbs, huge pineapple, tangerine, melon, creamsicle, bubble gum and mango. Bright and fresh hop bomb.

T- The orange and pineapple juice theme continues onto the palate and a moderate sweetness and booziness joins in with the massive hops and bitterness. A whole lot of bold flavors on the taste buds. Orange and pineapple juice blend leads into big ruby red grapefruit juice, bitter pine resin, melon, clementine peel, mango and lime. The booze is real here and while it doesn't disturb the hops that much certain sips end warm and are reminiscent of a tropical mixed drink. Hints of whole grain bread, cereal, cracker and alcohol.

MF- Heavy and slick body that is very substantial on the palate. The texture seems to come out late but the dextrins from the mash provide a silky feel and a luscious milky creaminess. Ends very warm.

A good Trillium offering but the high end ABV is just intense at times and accentuates the heavy citrus bitterness making it taste like a piece of citrus zest on the edge of a tropical mixed drink.

Pours a gleaming, turbid pale orange. Creamsicle like. Thick bright white head on heavy pour. Nose is packed with bright fresh citrus. Orange, grapefruit and lemon. Juice like if you will. Taste loses me a bit for one reason only, it’s hot. Really boozy is this one! There is tasty notes of citrus and hints of stone fruits along with sweet dough buried under all that boozyness tho. So I can’t too much. I just think it’s pretty green and it’s definitely a can you could sit on for a month in hops the heat is tamed. Thick creamy body with a hoppy hot finish. It’s hot!!! That’s all I got.
