COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cutting Tiles is an exploratory series of Double IPA’s featuring a range of aromatic single hop varietals brewed with raw wildflower honey. This new version is dosed with 100% Citra in all kettle, whirlpool and two massive dry hop additions. The local wildflower honey keeps the body light and drinkable but provides a earthy backbone. Floral and zesty up front backed up with a nuanced citrus character on the nose that continues straight through in the flavor profile. Pillowy soft mouthfeel, with a restrained bitterness on the finish. New variants to follow!

ABV: 8.5%

MALT: Pilsner, White Wheat, Flaked Wheat, Dextrine, C-15

HOPS: Citra

Poured from a can into a tulip: Pours hazy yellow / gold with a one finger head. Aroma of pineapple, orange, and cracker malt. Taste is pineapple juice, lightly sweet, some bitterness from the hops on the back end, and a little green onion. This is one of the best IPAs I've had from Trillium, and that's saying a lot.

Trillium, Canton. Soft white foam ring. lighter yellow hazed cream. A bit of sweet skunk on nose, plenty of hop. Big citra profile, obv. Finishes with a touch of sticky sweet, and a distinct honey flavor. Lemony, a bit hollow. Mild bittering. Honey is a fantastic element, and new to me in an IPA. Onion hop bitterness. Very nice.

Excitedly had on tap at Trillium’s newly finished Beer Garden by the Waterfront off Atlantic and High in Downtown Boston (maddeningly walkable from their Fort Point to-go location).
Fluffy, tractable velvety softness at the center of its impossibly beautiful flavor lovemaking togetherness produced a certain cohesion that I don’t see often - even in other Trillium beers.
Celery salt made its first connection with my senses right off the bat. It chimed admiringly at my being that all of the other profiles would be just as good, if not better with more overall roundness to them.
So from there, pear skins (not sure as to which cultivar I’d pick here - unusual for me!) leapt out of the cup, met gloatingly with hard minerals, leafy greens (crisped kale, spritzed butter lettuce, rainbow chard), and a pinch of white pepper and toasted, uncrushed coriander pods. This was noticed all before its triumphant mid-palate course. By swishing it around in my cheeks or leaving it in my mouth for a few minutes allowed for an appreciatively delicious unripe apricot meat to seductively appear in blanket of dried kelp, and whole wheat bread crusts before moving onto its prodigious swallow step.
The unripe apricot savagely transforms into a flirty overripe guava wholly surrounded by sea water and tangerine zest, which lingers for some time, bringing back some of its beginning flavors as a sort of saddening goodbye of sorts.
A most lovely beer!

Tallboy can via trade. Poured a juicy looking gold nectar citrus under a barely there head. Aroma of juice, pineapple, citrus, guava, mango, kiwi. Flavor is the same. Body is lighter to average at best, softer carbonation, sort of like a weak soda. Still a great beer.

dnstone (3579) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JUL 21, 2017
Pours a super hazed OJ-like appearance with white head. Juicy citrus and herbal aroma. Juicy with a slight bite and citrus dominance.

Notes: on tap at 5 horse tavern, Jul ’17

Reynolds314 (3477) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 17, 2017
This is too much. Pours like a creamsicle melted in my glass. Aroma is raw hops, armpit, orange, mango, garlic, and grass. Taste is muddled hop water with no brightness or bitterness to balance anything. The NE ipa fad gone too far.

3.3
tapefuzz (865) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 16, 2017
On tap at brewery. Pours a cloudy grapefruit juice yellow with a small white head. Aroma is honey, floral hops, and orange. Taste is honey, dough, grapefruit, orange, and a little melon. Medium body. Medium but prickly carbonation. Mouthfeel is sort of pillowy but a little rough.

Tasted from can. Pours a hazy yellow orange with white head. Robust citrus fruit with honey aroma. Moderate to heavily bitter. Flavors of grapefruit, lemon, tropical fruit, honey, floral. Excellent tasting with nice bitterness. Goes down very easy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dfonorow (2274) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Can. Pour is pale orange with a medium white head. Notes of lemon zest, cracker malt, mangos, and slight caramel. Finish is dank and hoppy, alcohol is masked well.
