Simply slathered with Mosaic hop character, the uniqueness of Melcher Street New England styled IPA by Trillium doesn't stop with simple brewing techniques, but rather a double dry hopping addition of the coveted hops for extra tangy, green and fruity complexity.

The Double Dry Hopped Melcher Street pours with a standard yeast extract appearance on a goldenrod backdrop. As a rich ivory froth builds on top, the perfume of succulent tropical fruit, citrus and herbal notes swoon the nose. The taste jumps right out with a shortbread type of bready sweetness that hinges on light caramel, honey and a slight cakey texture.

And then the true and radiant character of Mosaic hops shines on the middle palate and once the sweet maltiness begins to recede. Strong overtones of passionfruit, under ripened orange, gooseberry and lime show off the unique charm of the hops with a tangy, green fruit citrus and tropical medley. Trending peppery, botanical and nearly tangy, a grass filled late palate sheds the light on sassafras, white grapefruit, green tea, hemp and verbena.

Medium bodied and carrying a moderate bitterness, the smooth but drying ale lingers medium long on the finish with the discernible taste of tropical fruit rinds. An alcohol spice of gin and juniper lasts nearly as long as the hop bitterness even though a linger of bready malts hangs in tow.

Pours a murky yellow orange color. Tons of citrus, tropical fruits, light pine and fruity Malta. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A great DIPA.

Dive Bar, Worcester, MA.

A- Draft into a goblet with a hazy golden yellow body and a inch creamy head. Good retention and tons of lacing in sheets.

S- Big hop quota in the Trillium way. Fresh citrus and stone fruits stick out with tropical, herbal and floral. Ripe mango, apricot, peach, grapefruit, zesty oranges, creamsicle and pineapple.

T- Very much more zesty and citrus forward than expected compared to the other Trillium DDH I have tried. Ruby red grapefruit, zesty fresh oranges and tangerines saturate the palate leading into hints of pineapple, apricot, mango, clementine, lime zest and melon. A bit of sweetness and a strong bitterness. Insane amount of grapefruit juice.

MF- Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Somewhat creamy and frothy with a sharp bitter finish.

A ton of grapefruit and citrus hops with fair representation of tropical, floral and dank flavors. Delicious grapefruit juice.

F - medium body with lower than average.

O - a tad sweet but highly enjoyable otherwise.
