Notes: The first Double IPA produced at our Canton brewery. Featuring four powerful aromatic hop varieties, Galaxy, Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin, and Columbus, Scaled Up emits dank, spicy, aromas that lead into fruity, citrusy flavors of peach and orange on the palate. Lighter in body than most of our other Double IPAs, Scaled Up finishes dry and smooth with a pleasant bitterness.

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

HOPS: Galaxy, Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin, Columbus

Pours a cloudy yellow-orange color with a medium bodied white colored head that leaves little lacing down the glass. It's aroma is of toasted malts, sweet magoes, and citrus. Tastes of sweet malts, citrus, and mango/melon. It's a classic double IPA from Trillium, smooth, nice amount of carbonation, feels lighter than it is.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Trillium in Canton for about twenty dollars. My fiftieth brew from these guys. Good brew.

Full bodied with a distinctive Trillium taste. Slight but not off putting hop burn.

Pours deep orange with a whispy little head. It’s thick. Looks the part of a NE ipa.
No real glass lacing. Looks like juice.

Flavor and smell tell me this is either mosaic or Nelson. Not sure. Some veggies and onion in a good way. Kind of refreshing for an 8% beer.
Has a bitter finish for a NE.
Good beer

Pint can - Dated 08/17/20 - poured into an IPA glass at 45°F. Consumed 11/20/20.

Pours a fully opaque, deep apricot orange, looking like juice in the glass. Barely a finger of loose, off-white head forms before quickly receding to a razor-thin collar, leaving some spotty lacing behind.

Nose: In typical Trillium fashion, this thing just explodes with double dry-hopped hop juice. Lots of melon, papaya, and yellow mango, with some nectarine, apricot, white grape, orange, and some grassiness. Underneath, a thin thread of earthy, leafy hop dankness peeks through.

Palate: The beer is malty sweet as it greets the palate, with papaya, melon, and white grape, immediately followed by a huge earthy dank note. Nelson is contributing some green herbal and white grape notes, Mosaic lends some grassiness, and dankness, Galaxy provides some overripe stone fruit, and I thinkhe Columbus is laying down that dank, leafy/spicy character. The fruitier components begin to fade, as the grassy, herbal, spicy, and dank notes come into focus, taking on some bitterness, and drying out a bit. Some melon notes remain, but the finish is ultimately earthy, spicy, and dank, with a mild to moderate bitterness - quite resinous.

Mouthfeel/Body: The beer is medium to full-bodied. There's some fluidity and crispness to it, paired with some decent, but fine effervescence, but the soft malt and its weight does begin to show itself, and it's not one that effortless flies down the hatch. The finishing dryness definitely helps a bit, and overall, it's fairly balanced at 8% ABV.

Overall: The hop combination here is interesting, and definitely unique, but I think maybe the ratios aren't ideal. It's like all the earthy qualities of each varietal are showcased, while sacrificing some of the more delicate characteristics. I'm sure certainly people would absolutely adore it. It isn't exactly my cup of tea, but it's unique, and a fair well-crafted NE(D)IPA.

Can from Tfontana, thanks for the trade Tom.
Hazy lemon grapefruit in color with a small bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Juicy fruity tropical and citrus with a light grit and a hint of alcohol.

Sweet, tropical hoppy, white wine grape, slightly malty, and hint of dank nose on this one! Taste follows with a sweet tropical hoppy and grapefruit citrus bitter swallow. This is so well-balanced and soft and heavy on the palate! This is great!

Canned 8/17/20, tasted 8/30/20. Really enjoyed this Trillium brew! It's a really handsome pour - opaque dusky orange with a half inch of loose foam. Nice enticing aroma. The aspect of the taste that really stood out for me was the spicy grassiness mingled in with citrus, peach, and melon fruit notes, which gave it a nice crisp pop to the finish. Its body is medium to light, which makes it a refreshing middle-of-the-day beer despite the 8% ABV.
