A Street IPAA Street IPA
Notes: A Street IPA shows off a hazy faded golden orange appearance, and invites you in with the aromas of lemon grass, citrus zest and slight pineapple. Citrus notes continue to the palette, along with cantaloupe and a firm bitterness, to balance this beer. It's medium body and lingering finish leaves a reminder of these delightful Amarillo hops, beckons for another sip.

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

HOPS: Amarillo, Columbus

Bottle dated TODAY (3/25/15) poured into a large snifter:

Look: Beautiful deep orange with approx 2 fingers of head. Lacing lingers haphazardly on the glass.

Smell: Grassy/earthy and primarily tangerine fruitiness. As it warmed, the grass/earth notes almost completely dropped out in favor of more tropical fruit.

Taste: Tangerine and quite a bit of grapefruit! (Surprising with the lack of GF on the nose.

Feel: Such a well carbonated and soft mouthfeel, not every Trillium beer is a grand slam but no disputing look and feel THAT's for sure!

Overall: Middle of the road for the Trillium lineup, which is 95% above all other beers. Cheers.

Growler.

A - Beautiful, bright golden wheat body with ~50% opacity. Two fingers of right white head with really nice retention and lace.

S - Delicious, sweet orange and mango nectars. Really nice pineapple overtones. Similar fruit aromas to the Galaxy Dry Hopped Fort Point, but with less floral and herbal notes balancing out the nose.

T - Sharp green bitters open the profile. Green grass, lime zest, oregano and a touch of dill roll through the center as a white bread crust softens and mellows out the bitters. Resiny bitters cling to your palate through a long finish.

M - Nice soft, medium frame with nice carbonation

O - A really solid IPA loaded with fresh herbal betters and a sweet fruity nose.

poured from a growler into a trillium tulip glass

Right from the start the appearance is much clearer than your typical Trillium IPA. Its not crystal clear, but it doesnt look like OJ either.

First sip i tasted a lot of malts. Then as it warmed up a little resinous piney hops started to come through and compliment the malts well. Very light crisp and clean.

Drank the entire 32oz growler by myself, no problem!

The beer hits of zesty citrus and bright tropical of pineapple and mango. There's a light doughy malt bill with some substantial heft behind its ABV. Another stellar Trillium IPA.

Orange yellow in color. Cloudy/Turbid in appearance. Papaya, unripe mango, orange zest and grapefruit pith. Large cracker malt profile. Very dry finish. Wish it had a touch more sweetness to bring everything together. Less juicy, a little more earthy. One of the less liked in the Streets series.

The beer ours some light white and bubbly head that dissipates quickly and leaves a bit of lacing. The beer itself is a honey gold and clear. The smell has some pine and floral notes with the pine notes being the strongest. The smell also has a slightly sweet malt backbone to take the edge off the hops. The beer also has a slight bready smell as well. The notes are a bit different from the smell. The pine notes are still there but are overcome with bitterness and a slight sweet malty backbone and a hint of bready yeast but the latter is very little and barely noticeable. The mouthfeel is very light for a medium bodied beer and smooth as a result. Overall, a very good IPA and surprisingly light IPA. Worth getting again.

Poured a lovely cloudy honey orange with a thin but attractive head. Big hop scent exploded from the growler, and was even more intense on the nose. I'm expecting big things, and am not disappointed. Fruitiness is showcased with just a bit of an earthy note as well. Good lacing. A little sweet malt and light bitterness meld well to make this beer feel light and drinkable. Very well done, and a beer I hope to get again.

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.
