The beer pours a very white and bubbly head that dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is a clear pale straw color with a little bit of haze. Also leaves quite a bit of lacing. The beer has a very tropical smell with a nice floral smell. The main notes are a zest lemon and pineapple. The taste is slightly different than the smell. The taste still has the lemon notes but also notes of grapefruit and citrus flavor. The mouthfeel is fairly crisp and light for an IPA. My guess is the lack of malts. Biting carbonation. Overall, a pretty good IPA and worth getting. A little hop forward for my tastes but nice nonetheless.

Another neat IPA from Trilium, Congress St was phenomenal, so hopefully this at least pulls it's weight. Filled last night.

Pours a nice fizzy slight creamy 1finger head that fades at a med rate, mostly smaller bubbles popping, nice notched rings of messy and soapy lacing, quite hazy tangerine orange beer with a big column of bubbles rising up from the bottom.

Nose is more of a traditional IPA, floral hops, a little pine note, some citrus and orange peel, mild spicy note, this seems more of a cascade centennial and other of the C's hops, touch of a grapefruit splash, and even a little pith. Then mild sweet malts, fairly basic malt aroma. As it goes and warms, I start to get some tangerine citrus, little clementine orange, and it just gets more citrusy and fruity.

Taste again comes on with the basic American IPA, floral zesty hops, with a little flowery hop note, but more citrus and fruit again. A little rind bitterness, some grapefruit pith, plenty of tangerine like juicy citrus and some straight up orange juice with pulp bitterness. hops get a little spicy towards the back end, and a touch of pine and earthy flavors. Malts are fluffy and a bit creamy, mild sweetness, little grainy and toasty blond malt like characters. I'm starting to get a little melon rind from the hops as well as it finishes, fairly dry but sticky finish, with a huge acceleration of bitterness as the hops just take off, lots more tangerine and orange juice, with more spicy hops really dominating for a long finish, and a faint booze warmth.

Mouth is med bod to a bit fuller bod, slight creamy and fluffy, decent carb, hint of booze warmth in the background.

Overall not bad, more traditional IPA, probably a lot of the C's style hops, cascade based hops, with some of the newer ones added to it, but not a ton of the highly sought after ones at least. Still pretty tasty and enjoyable, nice bitterness although gets a little rough on the finish.

Tap poured into Pilsner glass at Row 34


Hazy orange brown, like an iced tea.two fingers of dense white head with excellent lacings. Layered the glass with lacings after each sip.

Aroma of Sweet orange and citrus

Taste of citrus hops. Smooth , no sharp bitter bite, good flavor. Almost creamy


really good iPa but without the harsh hop bite. I like this one. Repeatable and recommend you try.

Bottle from Redstone.
Hazy deep straw color with a decent sized long lasting bubbly white head. Big aromas of grapefruit and apricot mixed with a big of pine and resin with just a touch of faint crackery malt. The flavor is mostly citrus with hints of sweet bread. The flavor is not what I expected from the nose. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation. This smells fantastic and its a solid drinkable beer.

A- about 1 finger of dense white head. Ok retention, but excellent lacing. Hazy, unfiltered orange juice colored body.

S- Sweet citrus (orange and grapefruit) and peach. Maybe some honeydew melon and fresh cut grass.

T/M- Follows the nose with some citrus bitterness to balance out the sweeter, fruit. Pleasant, mellow melon and tropical fruit lingers in the finish. Medium bodied and silky on the tongue.

O- A little different than many of Trillium's IPAs. Are El Dorado hops new to this batch? Sleeper St doesn't have the pungent dankness or citrus bite of Congress St. Fruitiness reminds me a bit of FPPA and Mettle. Highly recommend this one.

Growler was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale yellow color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Slight lemon, pilsner and toasted malts, and some sweetness.

Taste: Nice pungent lemon and citrus backed up by pale, toasted, and bready malts with mild bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, chewy, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, and a little tingly bitterness.

Overall: A nice IPA. I enjoy the Fort Point a bit more, but this is still a solid enjoyable brew.

Poured into pint glass @ Row 34

L: Hazy gold, almost makes the beer look "dirty". Head is thin, but lacing is very pretty.
S: Dank, mango. Big.
T: All those tropical fruits plus a grapefruit and grassy note at the finish. Not overly bitter.
F: Medium body, off-dry finish. There's a slight bitterness that lingers on the teeth. Almost effervescent.
O: For a 7% alcohol beer, this is an easy drinker. Flavorful and balanced.

This is my 1st experience with Trillium. It's excellent. Also have some Congress St and Fort Pt to try. I can't wait for those given the good 1st impression of Sleeper St.
