Notes / Commercial Description:
Last year for our 4th Anniversary, we wanted to brew something extra special and deeply rooted in Trillium’s history. Congress Street was the very first IPA we brewed in 2013. Its success inspired an entire series of beers, all named after streets in Fort Point surrounding our first brewery. Each of these beers uses the same base recipe featuring a different dry hop presenting a unique flavor with common ties. Building off of the Streets series, we decided to brew a beer that was a little bit of each. Using the same base recipe as all our Street beers, we dry hopped with Amarillo, Mosaic, Galaxy, El Dorado, Simcoe, Nelson, Vic Secret, & Enigma. This year’s recipe of The Streets Triple IPA is a celebratory culmination of all the Streets beers we’ve brewed over the past 5 years, and our continued exploration of fermentation profiles.
Fruity esters produced by this year’s fermentation profile shine through in the aroma and flavor. Hazy and orange in appearance with a strong nose of strawberry, tropical fruit, lime, pineapple and melon rind. A palate of pineapple, over ripe fruit, subtle grapefruit pith, and a subtle sweetness is complemented by a balancing bitterness. A full, creamy mouthfeel rounds out this surprisingly drinkable Triple IPA.
