Double Dry Hopped Sleeper StreetDouble Dry Hopped Sleeper Street
Notes: Same base grist as Sleeper Street IPA, but with a double dose of El Dorado in the dry hop. These El Dorado hops impart a powerful aroma of distinctive lime zest, along with notes of grapefruit juice, and a subtle woodsy earthiness. The taste is bright, floral, and citrusy hop upfront and finishes with candied lime. As with all Trillium “Street” IPA’s, Double Dry Hopped Sleeper Street is dry with medium-light body and a crisp finish.

Cloudy, dirty gold color. Moderate head for a bar pour. It leaves one good ring of lace. There's some minor streaking thereafter.

Fresh, clean hop cone aroma. Very floral, no bitterness.

The flavor starts with a pale, unfermented malt sweetness. Decent body with an elevated effervescence. The malt base almost like bubblegum. There's a solid presence of unfiltered yeast showing up just before a white pepper hop finish. Moderate length aftertaste for a DIPA.

Having visited the legendary Treehouse during the day, we then hopped on the train to Boston in order to visit the highly rated Trillium Brewery.

DDH Sleeper Street pours a hazy golden orange color with a moderate and well retaining head.

Aromas of tropical fruit and pungent, almost catty, herbal dank. There are notes of mango juice, pineapple, freshly squeezed orange juice and peach. Furthermore, the grass and pine resin aromas evoke old school hops combining well with the new.

The taste features juicy notes of tropical fruit, particularly mango and pineapple, along with intense zesty and tangy citrus flavors. Notes of stone fruit evoke apricot and peach. Spicy notes of pine resin and grass as well as a firm but accessible bitterness that balances the sweetness of the juicy notes and the malts. The finish is spicy, long and dry. Medium to full bodied with a mouthfeel that alternates between smooth and crisp. The carbonation is moderate and just right.

I’m so glad I popped my Trillium cherry, as this brew was simply outstanding.

Can at RateBeer Summer Gathering. Super hazy, no head. Fruity juicy aroma. Taste is mostly citrus, but the dry hopping adds some nice bitterness, dry and tingly.

Pours a pale orange, milky and opaque, off white head, short but persistent, with curtains of lacing. Nose is banana and pineapple, mango and orange, and taste is similar, adding a pine-mint freshness, with a pithy acidic bite in the finish. One of the best I’ve had from Trillium.

Picked this up on Monday at Canton. Canned 6/3

L: Beautiful cloudy orange/peach with 1 inch of dense foam. Really pretty

S: Mango, peach, and plum. Very light aroma of molasses.

T: Citrus fruit as well as piney, bitter hops. I normally don't notice sugary/sweet after-taste, but I picked that up in this one.

F: Peppery and better. Excellent level of carbonation, though.

O: A very interesting IPA with a unique hop blend. The nose on this beer is wonderful, but there's a bitterness to this one that keeps it from being particularly smooth. It was worth a try, but don't think I'll be returning this one.

L: complete haze and a light pastel orange with a finger of foam that fades fast
S: orange and tangerine with the Rhine's. Sweet but dank...great aroma
T: big tangerine, mostly juice but slight whole fruit purée. I love Trillium’s balance in their ipas. World class every time
F: smooth and creamy with a slight back of the tongue dank bite that keeps me coming back for me. Wet and refreshing finish with out the bitterness and drying.

Picked-up four cans at the Trillium brewery in Canton for about twenty dollars. My tenth brew from these guys. This was very good, one of my favorites from them. Don't love the price point, but would buy again.

Canned 9/27/16; drank 10/10/16 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dull orange appearance.

A rough pour yielded a HUGE white head; strong, frothy lace.

Mango, orange citrus & caramel notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Orange citrus & cane sugar flavors up front; mild, smooth caramel notes on the finish.

More malty than I expected but still enjoyable.

Opaque nearly glowing orange-yellow with a moderate off-white fizz that settles to a soft central film and a raised but thin collar.

Smell is spicy, dank and resiny, but also tropical and citrusy with a touch of toasted biscuit.

Smooth, round, and lightly crisp with an uncharacteristically substantial body for a glass of Trillium haze, tangy flavors of lime, blood orange and mint-spiked lemonade transition to sightly acidic onion and burnt pine resin before the slightly stinging, semi-dry swallow.

Canned 7/10/18. Enjoying in a glass, at home, courtesy of the in-laws.

Powerful citrus smell, a little like OJ at the tail end of its sell-by date. Very sweet entry, almost like citrus soda. Lingering carbonation. Great, long, slightly bitter finish.

Wasn’t too sure about this one on the nose, but the taste, feel and finish really brought it around. Another really good beer from Trillium!

Trillium DDH street IPAs always seem to be so well balanced. Not to bitter, not too boosy. El dorado oftentimes tastes too candy like so was a bit hesitant but this is the best el Dorado beer I have had.

Pint canned on 7/10/18 opened up on 7/15/18

The color seems to be that of the New England style ipa standard: a milky golden with tints of white haze and orange juice. Opaque and thick. Creamy white dome, settles down to thin coverage. Only a thin ring of bubbly foam remains with minimal lacing leftover.

A malty scented sweetness of raw honey and golden wheat pops out for me first. Bright citrus fruits, pineapple and orange crush soda from the hops. Zesty grapefruit, tangy, sour-grassy earth in July. Tangerine and lemmon, vanilla and cream topping. The nose is simply an intense delight. Perhaps the most fruity-sweet domininant hoppy nose I've ever had the pleasure of inhaling.

A ling, lush, thick and smooth texture to the body and mouthfeel is most impressive. Certainly fresh, crisp with a zing, but damn silky to boot. The tangy, earthy bitter side of tbe fruity hop flavor hits first with multiple layers of complexity. Sweet tropical fruits, pine, lemmon kick, grapefruit, pineapple and a serious assortment of malty backdrops like, silky wheat, pilsner malt, lactose and dry, herbal effects that come across slightly sweet in the end. Juicy-dry-bitter-sweet-juicy and dry again!

Complexity of hop and malty flavor's is very high. The balance is harmonious and the approach is light and easy, even with the complexity. The hops come across as seriously fresh, green, earthy and amazingly fruity. El Dorado, double dry-hopped is a beauti f u. L thing.

Pours to the lighter side of the NE IPA-style, very hazy but not milkshake consistency, and looks like the glass of grapefruit juice I had this morning, except this has a thick, tan head. The nose is full of grapefruit notes and some spicy citrus aromas, but there’s an earthy note that’s intriguing.

The grapefruit is right in your face on the taste, but that earthy flavor adds a different texture to this, and there’s also some lemon lime notes that are really fantastic. Most excellent job by Trillium, IMHO.

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.

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)

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

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.

Drinking from a 4 day old can poured into an appropriate glass. Murky yellow orange with a 2 finger head. The descriptors from Trillium are on point. Just fantastic stuff. One can't drink regular things after this...

Wonderful. I keep getting happier and happier having to rate a treasure trove of their beers I lucked out on as I was heading to Florida for the winter. AND to get bragging rights as well. Damned if it gets much better than this. Thank u Trillium.
