This amplified version of Congress Street IPA is a focused exhibition of the Galaxy Hop.

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.

This beer is hazy and delicious. Probably the first beer I ever fell in love with.

They had me at "double dry hopped". Leaping out with copious additions of Galaxy hops, Trillium Brewing's Congress Street sees a breath of fresh air that's nothing like our other congress.

Leading with those high aromas of Galaxy hops, a tropical array of tangy, bright and herbal character seems tea-like, juniper and passionfruit to the nose. But to the eye, the visual weight of butter pecan ice cream comes with an orange tinge in a complete opaque matte finish. And then the taste of Double Dry Hopped Congress Street spills onto the tongue with a pastry-rich angelfood cake softness rounded with light caramel and honey.

Any malt attention is short lived because the hops once again explode on the tongue, bringing all the radiant glory of Galaxy's passionfruit, kiwi, lime, lemon, guava and papaya flavors with a juicy, punch-like backbone. Sweetness continues to recede as the tropical and citrus flavors develop a spicy bitterness of verbena, sassafras, citrus peel and a piquant resinous bitterness. Bright grassy, leafy and stemmy flavors bring a late palate of green tea, sprucy gin and gently muddled pine needles.

Medium full on the palate, the beer's juicy maltiness holds onto the hoppy fruit impressions for a full celebration of culinary art but at the slight sacrifice of dryness, crispness and cleanliness. An aftertaste of cannabis and tropical fruit rinds carry a slight grit and earthen hop taste into a medium long linger with gin-like spices taunting the finish.

Unreadable date on bottom of can...
Moderate pour yields an almost one inch, slightly off-white head over a very cloudy, almost murky, body with some sticky lacing. Nose of tropical fruit (mango, pineapple), dankness (pine, slight onion), and sweet citrus (orange, tangerine, grapefruit.) Taste mirrors nose pretty well with an orange pith flavor taking over the middle and finishing nicely bitter and dry. Very nice feel and overall, a fine IPA from Trillium, probably my favorite from them. Cheers!
