Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: JCTetreault on 03-28-2014

Following in the footsteps of our other “Street” IPA’s, Sleeper shares the same base grains while placing the unique El Dorado hop at center stage. Opaque orange-yellow in color with floral aromas of lime zest, grapefruit peel, pine sap, and candied orange. Juicy, hop-driven flavors of bright citrus, melon, and herbal pine are balanced with medium bitterness, fluffy mouthfeel, and dry finish.

MALT: American 2-row Barley, White Wheat, Dextrine, C-15

Pours a subtly hazy light orange color with a 2-finger white head. Not a lot of retention but leaves a ton of spotted lacing. Not quite the "orange juice" appearance I'm used to from Trillium beers.

The aroma is very sweet. I get plenty of orange, and just a touch of pine. Some even more subtle notes of grapefruit can be detected as well.

The taste, like the aroma, is very sweet. So much sweet orange and tangerine, followed by some grapefruit and a touch of pineapple. There's a more subtle, bitter character from the piney hops hiding in the back. The hops are balanced out by a slightly sweet, slightly doughy malt character that provides the backbone to this brew.

The mouth is medium bodied with good carbonation. Very creamy, yet very dry and bitter on the back end. Has a nice, crisp quality to each sip.

Overall, Trillium does it again. I'm not sure I've had a hoppy beer of theirs that really takes too many risks, but despite this, they are always high quality and leave me coming back for more. Outside of the appearance, this beer is the definition of a New England IPA. It's juicy, sweet, with tons of fruity and floral notes throughout. Yet it still maintains that subtle piney bitterness that a good IPA would be truly lost without.

I just rhymed for some reason.

L- Brilliant, bright orange. Puffy white head. Looks great but less hazy than most Trillium I've had.

S- Floral and fruit. Tangerine, orange, grapefruit. Grass. Outstanding.

T- Jucy and a little more hop forward than most Trillim offerings. Flavored really opened up after warming just a bit out of the fridge.

F- Pretty thick for the style but very enjoyable. Coats the mouth.

O- Not one of my favorite T offerings but still really, really good.

I moved to the wrong coast.

750mL dated 08/04/15 and consumed today, received it in a trade with Alex, thanks! Pours a lighter amber with a decent cloudiness, not as cloudy as their other offerings. Decent head with lacing. Potent aroma of citrus, definite tangerine as some others have said. Flavor starts sweet with citrus. Bitterness overtakes on the back end. This is definitely bitter than the other offerings. Crisp malt bill throughout and it finishes a hair dry. Feels a bit too heavy, but overall a great IPA from Trillium. Still prefer Congress St based on the 3 I've had so far.

This is my lowest rated Trillium by far. I'm thinking that it must not be as fresh as I have been accustomed to ( maybe 45-60 days old). That said, the nose and taste are as good, if not better, than 90% of all IPA's I've had.
