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

Had on draft at the Canton facility, so much haze and such a vibrant aroma. mouthfeel and malt and hop balance were almost perfect. As good or better than anything out there.

Smell: Immediately your hit with huge over ripe pineapple and tropical fruits. Mango, peach, juicy orange, tangerine. Some grapefruit zest and pine. Bubblegum Herbaceous, you also get a slight alcohol presence.

Taste: Right upfront your hit with big overripe tropical fruits pineapple, peach, mango along with this sweet bubblegum flavor. The mid palate the beer turns towards citrus fruit. Orange zest, tangerine peel, grapefruit. Along with some dry crackery malt. In the finish you get more of that citrus zest with some herbaceous notes, spearmint and a low to moderate piney bitterness.

Feel: Medium to full bodied. Semi creamy. Juicy and delicious!

Overall: This is a really explosive beer upfront overripe juicy tropical fruits that transition beautifully in the mid plate to citrus zest with a hint of juiciness. The finish has a perfect amount of bitterness. Only complaint is the spice on the back end but that should go away with a little more time in the fridge. This is a wonderful crafted beer. One of the best single IPA'S out there. A+ 100/100

From the bottom of a can purchased from the Fort Point location: "CANNED ON 10-JUL-17 07:54"

Appearance: The body is completely opaque with a very light orange color. It looks like fresh squeezed orange juice. The head is medium sized, white, and frothy. It has decent retention but it slowly fades to a thick ring of frothy foam with some mild lacing.

Aroma: It has a huge hop aroma. It smells just like mangos and peaches. There is a lot of hop resin aroma similar to what the outside of a hop bine smells like. The aroma just pops out of the glass.

Taste: It has a pineapple skin flavor up front with just a bit of pine flavor in the middle. There is a touch of peppermint in the finish. The aftertaste has more of that pine and when that fades there is a bit of melon. The more the beer is enjoyed the more it starts to layer a pine flavor on the palate.

Mouthfeel: The beer does not have a lot of bitterness but it has a sharp bite to it. It has some texture but the finish is harsh. There is also a bit of an oily texture at the end.

Overall: It is a very enjoyable beer that has a fantastic aroma and outstanding flavor. It tastes very fresh. It drinks a bit harsh and it tastes very green but the benefits outweigh these negatives. I would drink it again and I would recommend it.

fresh can 7/10
A: golden yellow with a great hazy glow

S: 1st hit with pine in a good way followed by citrus fruit bomb then falls off to finish with resin smell which is a roller-coaster ride of DDH greatness.

T:light malt up front with hint of bitterness with grassy notes and nice pine finish that lingers

M: creamy and soft

O: simple it is great example of a well done NEIPA and trying to stop myself on cracking the 2nd one after writing this review.

Like it just slightly more than Congress Street. Trillium makes some quality beers.
