2/20/18. Exactly 1 month old can date. Nice dark amber-honey color with a creamy head of 2 fingers.

Very lovely fruity aromas, completely full of plump juicy mango, tangerine, cantaloupe, orange, nectarine, and soft hints of vanilla.

A nice crackery-bready malt (in equal proportions) starts off the base layer of this beer, building on sharp pine and lemon rinds, darting off to juicy mango, tangerine, white wine, pepper, and a finish of green grape. The cracker and rind are left buzzing behind on the palate while the fruits soak in nicely.

Feel is crisp and clean, with a nice undercurrent of creaminess that just floats this beer nicely.

Overall, DDH Sleeper Street is one you definitely should NOT sleep on. Very tasty profile, impressive beer overall.

DDH Sleeper Street - Trillium
IPA - 7.2% abv
Canned 2/13/18 (22 days ago)

L - 2-finger yellowed head atop a juicy orange body.

S - very juicy. Grapefruit, mango, papaya, blood orange. Some sweetness in the nose as well. No booze.

T - follows the nose. Grapefruit is the most prominent taste but other tropical fruits are there too. Some dirt in the middle. Moderate bitterness. Just the slightest hint of booze. Strange medicinal finish is offputting, and puts a damper on things.

F - medium body and carb.

O - Another great Trill, but let down by the finish. Perhaps this can was mistreated somehow? Never got a medicinal taste from them before.

The beer pours a deliciously white and creamy head that dissipates at a moderate pace. It still leaves a good amount of beer around the inside of the glass. The beer itself is a cloudy and opaque medium orange that strongly resembles orange juice. It is beautiful.

The smell is fantastic. The smell has as fairly strong lime zest that comes out the strongest compared to the other notes with a wood note following it. The grapefruit is actually fairly mild compared to the other two but adds a good fruity complement.

The taste is really good but the smell is better. The zest isn't as strong as it is in the smell and actually comes out more in the finish. The wood note comes out strong when compared to the lime floral notes. The grapefruit notes are there but it is more of a unripe white grapefruit. It's still good but a bit light.

The feel is pretty good. It's a medium bodied beer with a dry finish because of a crisp carbonation. The beer itself has a good weight and goes down like orange juice does.

Overall, this is a pretty good beer and worth getting one's hands on giving the interesting lime note. Go for it.

A:
Pours a murky rotten mango color with a finger of short-lived soapy head. Middlin' retention; barely-there lacing. (3.75)

S:
Really interesting hop aroma. Vanilla, imitation mango, moss, olives (!?), herbs. Something incredibly vivid that I can't quite place. (4.5)

T:
Dry, powdery suggestion of bitterness with melon, guava, mango, citrus zest. (4.25)

M:
Soft, medium body with medium carbonation and a crisp, dry finish. (4.5)

O:
This is a weird one (and I mean that in the best possible way). It had been a while since a Trillium beer had that "wow" moment like the first time, but this one did. It pours all right looking and is otherwise very good. Juicy, woodsy, fresh bitterness in the flavor and a fluffy/dry feel. The real star for me is the aroma but mainly because it reminds me of something from my childhood (like eerily so) and I can't quite place it. Like an Orange Julius or some sort of mango-coconut kind of smell. Really nice, creamy and fruity. Great beer.
Danke, J-Dawg! (4.5)

Solid beer. Very interesting flavor profile with the Key Lime feel and zest. Solid. Just can't get too amped for this in the mail. Toppling Goliath beers are blasting this right now locally

Canned 11 days ago. My twenty-fifth review of a Trillium beer!

L -- Standard Trill-juice orange haze with a small rocky white head produced with aerated pour. Minimal retention or lacing. I've had similar experiences with certain batches of DDH Congress, so my guess is the sub-par head is due to the intense late-addition hopping.
S -- Lime, Concord grape, citrus peel, mild fusels, watermelon, guava, perfumey floral, and a hint of that fresh paper smell when you open a new ream of copy paper. Sweet, clean, juicy
T -- Watermelon Jolly Rancher, Concord grape, citrus zest, bready malts, grapefruit flesh, grassy earthiness
F -- Crisp and semi-dry. Tapering, earthen, astringent bitterness on the finish. Medium mouthfeel, medium carb.
O -- The zestiness imparted by the El Dorado hops reminds me a lot of Trillium's experimentation with the Enigma hop, but it's much more rounded here by the overripe watermelon and grapefruit character. Still getting sticker shock on these DDH releases, though, even after many trips to the brewery..... Knocking 0.25 off the overall for that reason alone

90/100

Poured into a can shaped pint glass canned on 2/13/18. Pours like a glass of pineapple orange juice, with a 2 finger sticky head, and leaves behind loads of webby lace.

Smell is guava, passion fruit, pineapple, and some grapefruit rind.

Taste follows tropical front to back with a very balanced shot of grapefruit in the deliciously balanced finish.

Mouthfeel is bigger than average, moderate life, not dry but sticky from all the fresh hops, and extremely drinkable.

Overall another world class NEDIPA that just makes you drink faster than you want to.
