Notes / Commercial Description:
This amplified version of Congress Street IPA is a focused exhibition of the Galaxy Hop. Milky and yellow-orange in appearance, Double Dry Hopped Congress Street emits fragrant aromatics of mango, pine resin, grapefruit, pineapple, and peach. Explosive flavors of tropical fruit, grassy hop, nectarine, orange rind, and creamy malt inundate the palate with a thick, rich mouthfeel and soft, effervescent carbonation. The finish is full and oily, yet clean, with a light, modest bitterness.

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

HOPS: Galaxy, Columbus

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 4/11/2017. Pours opaquely hazy golden/orange/green color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very mild pine, herbal, grassy, zesty bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol for 7.2%. Overall this is an outstanding NEIPA! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the very mildly bitter/drying finish. Outstanding soft feel for the style. Very juicy and lightly dank Galaxy hop complexity; balanced pale/wheat malt backbone, not overly sweet/heavy for the style. Held up extremely well considering the can dating. I'm sure fresh would be mind blowing, as I had regular Congress Street a while ago. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example as expected.

Canned on 05/04/18, 09:38:05.

Pours a murky pale gold. A really nice color, with a fairly small head of frothy head that settles quickly and leaves sporadic lace.

Ahh, the joy that is the nose of a Trillium Hazy. Overripe tropical mango and pineapple, booze, and a subtle malt bill that combine for a truly beautiful aroma.

Out of this world (or Galaxy?). Getting a lot of hops right off the bat. Bitter, dank, delicious. The sweet fruitiness that was so apparent on the nose is an afterthought in the flavors, oh so subtle but with a nice contrast between nose and flavor. Pineapple comes out of hiding as it warms.

Medium body, creamy. The carb is very apparent and sharp, but doesn’t take away from the beer in any way. Bravo.

Superb milky orange body, essentially opaque, with a pungent nose of grapefruit and peaches, with mild mint and pine beneath. Lovely fruit juice flavor, mildly bitter close suggesting grapefruit pith. The feel is light for the power. Delicious milky glory. Well worth seeking.
