Can at home. Tasted fresh. It pours an orange color with an off white head. The aroma has heavy graham cracker with a little peach and stone fruit. The flavor is the same with peach, stone fruit and noticeable bready, almost cookie-like British base malts. Smooth on the palate. The alcohol is really well hidden. Not really the hop bomb I was expecting, but this was still smooth and tasty. RRistow12 (995) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Incredible beer. Tasted from can. Robust aroma. Lot of orange with some peach and mango. Very well balanced. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits on flavors. Creamy mouthfeel. Excellent tasting IPA. Overall a top notch IPA even by Trilliums really high standards.

can thanks to Brendan. Wow, intense, thick and sweet for trillum. Tons of citrus and tropical increase drinkability. I could easily crush this all day. ClarkVV (7050) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Draught and cans at 4th Anniversary party, 3/19/17 and staggered over the next few weeks.jonno (3042) - JAPAN - APR 22, 2017
Moderately-to-fully hazy yet not soupy, with a firm, off-white head atop.
Lime zest, tangerine, mango and pineapple give off classic tropical fruit juice notes with light wheat and some ester and alcohol, inevitably, behind it as well. It’s not quite as much of a juice bomb as I had expected, with more leafy, spicy, dank notes and a good helping of light pine and grapefruit, but it’s put-together well and seemingly well-attenuated from the nose.
In the mouth it’s soft, well-carbonated, engagingly so, with wheat and malt creating a comforting texture to balance the plethora of hop attributes. Lots of melon, pineapple, lime, lemon and grapefruit with lots of spiciness on the finish that also reveals light alcohol. It’s pretty well-concealed and there isn’t much resin either here. As far as attenuation, it’s very dry and comes across almost more so than many of their regular IPAs, let alone DIPAs. Perhaps a little more malt would have helped here? Whatever the case, the beer got softer and juicier over the course of three weeks and I greatly preferred it with a little age on it. I’m sure it’s still drinking wonderfully now and I’m excited to see what they do with subsequent batches.
Can at home. Soft stone fruit and tropical fruit nose. Big dense head. Full bodied but alcohol very well hidden at this ABV. Lots of stone fruits with touches of tropical fruit and citrus. Really opens up as it warms. Not too creamy on the body with a long, enveloping finish. Restrained and thoroughly classy.

Can. Rather hazy bright golden color. Aroma is tropical fruits galore. Mango, papaya domination. Fruity taste, moderate bitterness, slight heat. Stellar stuff. Huhzubendah (3776) - Washington DC, USA - APR 17, 2017
Can shared by jc1762. Thanks Jon.
Hazy, bright orange body with a small, off-white collar. Aromas of orange and melon, hop forward. Medium sweetness and moderate bitterness. Lingering tangy citrus with a touch of alcohol. Pretty good. jc1762 (1693) - JAPAN - APR 17, 2017
Thanks Zack for the can! Poured into a winegllass showing hazy dark orange with barely half a finger of clean white foam.
The nose shows notes of mango, pineapple, and hints of kiwi with a nicely sweet NE style maltiness.
The palate is full bodied and lightly carbonated. Flavors of light mango and pine resin. A lot more pine on the mid-palate with a strong but restrained bitterness. Mild alcohol appears on the finish and resurgence. Wow, really hot on the back end.
