BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
UPPER CASE has a delicate, dry pilsner malt character with a smooth, soft, doughy mouthfeel from the raw wheat, oily hop resin which all serves as a canvas for this twice dry hopped 9% double IPA. Overripe mango, pineapple and passion fruit aromas leap out as the beer is poured. The impression of tropical fruit also takes the lead in the flavor which is layered further by white wine, pine resin and grapefruit zest. Hopped primarily with Mosaic with supporting roles played by Galaxy, Citra and Columbus.

MALT: Pilsner, Flaked Wheat, C-15, Dextrine, Dextrose

HOPS: Mosaic, Galaxy, Citra, Columbus

Tasted from can. Pours a hazy gold with white head. Aroma is tropical fruit with lemon. Taste is moderate to heavily bitter. Flavors of lemon, mango, melon, pineapple, resin, caramel. As almost all of Trilliums beer very well done.

Canned 6/5/17; drank 7/20/17 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque orange/yellow appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big, bright white head; decent lace.

Dry wheat, orange citrus & faint yeast notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Mild orange citrus & peanut butter flavors up front; wheat & mild clove notes on the finish. No booze heat.

Not the fruit-forward juice bomb I want in the style; this is pleasant but ultimately forgettable.

Getting lots of mango, papaya, pineapple, some pine. All on top of a nice pilsner presence, with some fresh baked bread and wheat. Hop oils in full force, it coats your mouth aggressively, but with barely any unpleasant bitterness. This one is top class.
