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.

Upper Case pours a thick, murky orange juice yellow with a small, 1-finger ivory white head that leaves little lacing on the glass. The smell has a big tropical fruit aroma with orange, mango and grapefruit with a big bite of danky hop resin. The taste is sweet candied fruit inducing pineapple, mango and good dose of citrus zest with a creamy goodness from the raw wheat. A complex bitterness creeps in finishing rather sticky. Overall, this is a very solid NE style DIPA. Another great beer out of Trillium brewing. Cheers!

Draught pour at The Smoke Shop. Nose is mute (opens up a bit once warm) , but the taste explodes with tropical fruit, papaya, guava, passion fruit, mango, kiwi, and some faint citrus. Creamy feel on the tongue and swallow, some ABV burn that drys the palate. Damn delicious brew, just wanted more from the nose.

Pours an opaque orange gold color with a one finger bone white head that doesn't leave much lacing.

Aroma has tropical notes of orange and grapefruit along with something a little more tart.

Taste is more on the sweet side of the hops with the tropical flavors dominating, mostly in the citrus range. A dry tartness is still present but smartly stays in the background. Malt is lightly present and bitterness is low.

Feel is very soft and smooth, not too effervescent, with a dry alcohol burn in the finish.

This is a pretty damn good DIPA with the soft feel laid on very thick. Flavors are mellow yet very present. Any fan of NEIPAs would be very happy with this one.
