I think this would've been a smidge better if it were fresh. Can is 2 months old but surprisingly still exceptional. Look, we can't get Trillium down in NJ. Not comparing, but this is a really nicely done brew. Fruit hints on the smell with nice Galaxy hop smell. Very danky and a little bitter on taste but finished well. I would recommend this one. Try to score a fresher can or visit the brewery. This score is based off a two month old can of ale which leads me to believe this beer is exceptional fresh.

Disappointing. Glorious has overwhelming bitterness without much balance. Pretty good look, smell, and feel, but overall it's like an overripe grapefruit. Not up to the quality of Lord Hobo's other offerings.
