4.2/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A-Pours a hazy yellow color that's nearing orange. A flick of the glass angers the beer and the head begins to grow. The head is a cottony mass that leaves freckles and ribbons along my glass as it quickly recedes.

S-The hops obviously take precedent. More importantly, I find the hoppy aroma(s) to be incredibly up eccentric and unique. I get an immediate, lead-off, scent of mint and evergreen. I also get some green onion and marijuana. A bit of moss as well. Some less-verbose tropical fruit smells, too.

T-Tropical fruits have tamed the zany hop aromas found in the nose. A Street's hops become much fruitier when they finally land on the tongue. Dried pineapple and mango slices. Candied citrus. The mint/evergreen does sneak back up in the finish. The malt is a half sweet/half dry mattress of support for the hop-show.

M-Not very bitter. When cold, the flavor dies off quickly; as it warms, the flavor sticks to my tongue more properly. Soft carbonation.

O-I await Trillium's hoppy beers with awkwardly bated breath. This is probably their most unique hoppy brew. Further solidifies the fact that I need to try every Trillium beer I can theoretically get my mouth around.

Pours hazy, gold in color with 2/3 inch head. Taste is herbal and floral hops, with light lemon and grapefruit. Liight bodied, slightly bitter with moderate carbonation. Above average, but not really on par with the other beers in the Street series. Good by most breweries, but I feel spoiled by Trillium and this one is worth trying but glad I did not get a full four pack.

P- Poured from a 16 oz can,into a Cigar City spiegelau IPA glass.Canned on 09-AUG-17.

L- Fluffy white colored head that stands 1 finger width tall,with very good retention and sticky lacing.Hazy amber colored body with low clarity,and distorted light showing through the glass.High amount of carbonation,with a low amount of sediment.

S- On the nose I get mostly tropical fruit notes,mango and pineapple,with tangerine,and peach in the background.Subtle notes of pale malt for balance.

T- The palate follows the nose with a delicate hop bite up front,tropical fruits in the middle,and some citrus and bready malts on the back end.

F- The mouth feel is medium bodied,with a chalky texture.High amount of oxidation on the tongue,with a dry finish.

O- This is a damn fine IPA.Perfect balance of hops,and malts.I will definitely drink this one again,and recommend to all the hop and IPA lovers.

Growler shared by Curran tonight.

This one pours a slightly dark orange, with a 1.5 inch head, and a lot of lacing. At one week old, it's good to see that this growler has held up and is still well carbonated.

This smells quite grassy, with a bit of floral perfume character, and some tangerine and grapefruit.

This is a lot more grassy than I expected, with a fairly bitter bite to it. There is some fruity sweetness, a nice bit of tangerine and grapefruit, but it's mainly earthy and grassy, really.

This has a solidly middle of the ground mouthfeel, with a solid level of carbonation, and a relatively medium body.

Not one of the Trillium's top tier IPAs, but still quite good.

16oz can, purchased at the brewery, known to be fresh, poured into Trillium Congress Street willibecher glass. Enjoyed on 4.1.17, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a very hazy and cloudy copper color, orange hues with two fingers of white head with good retention and lace. The aroma is nice, overripe tropical fruits, lots of spicy citrus peel with citrus juice, lots of piney bitterness, pretty green and earthy with some soft pale dough and a bit of mineral water. The flavors match the nose well, lots of citrus peel, bitter, spicy, with some tangy tropical fruits and a ton of bitterness, lots of earthy and sappy pine, leafy green hop with just a light reminder of pale grain. The mouthfeel is good, coating with a very crisp and lively texture, plenty of carbonation with a very bitter finish.

Verdict: A good IPA from Trillium, not one of their best, very bitter, very green, not so balanced and quite aggressive all things considered. The flavors feel a bit bland, very one dimensionally bitter and green with just a touch of fruit flavors to counterbalance.

16 oz can dated 8/9/17 (10 days old)

Pours a cloudy, somewhat muted orange gold color. one finger dense frothy head settles down to a film with spotty lacing.

Aroma is bright at first but quickly dies down to become weak in smell. Notes of grapefruit, lemon grass, pineapple and orange in there - a nice mix IMO.

Taste is well balanced with light amounts of sweet malt in the background with a steady dose of floral and tropical hop flavors - similar to smell with a base of sweet hops and a touch of citrusy tartness layered on top.

Feel is unsticky, a surprising amount of seltzer, and just the right amount of smoothness. Very refreshing feel.

This is really an outstanding beer - not over the top tropical hops like many of their other ones (unsurprising since this is not a DDH) but it is a fantastic entry compared to so many other breweries trying to make this very same beer. The flavor profile and the feel come togther great. May be my favorite non-DDH IPA from them.
