Double Dry Hopped ScaledDouble Dry Hopped Scaled
Notes: An intensified version of Scaled and the latest addition to our line-up of aromatic, juicy IPA's. The secondary dry hop of El Dorado and Citra results in an enhanced nose of citrus, pineapple, and wet earth. The flavor brings intense lime, refreshingly pithy bitterness and just a touch of toasted malt. Medium bodied with a dry finish.

MALT: American 2-row Barley, White Wheat, Flaked Wheat, Dextrine, C-15

HOPS: El Dorado, Citra, Columbus

A- Pours from the 16oz can into a gueuze glass with a very, very murky and hazy body with a one finger head. The head falls down fairly quickly and lacing is a mix of spottiness and small sheets.

S- Fruity hops, for the most part, with pineapple being particularly forward. Melon, mango, passionfruit, tangerine, grapes and papaya also come to mind.

T- A lot less juicy than the aroma suggested but still pretty fruity and definitely plenty hoppy in the flavor. Melon, pineapple and lime are big but a pretty large floral, berry bitterness takes over midway through the sip and it becomes more herbal and berry than tropical or stone fruit hop forward. A touch of green, raw hop in the finish. Light hint of pale grains and a touch of sweetness.

MF- Right around medium bodied for this style and the texture is really foamy and puffy. A touch of creaminess. The brew has a moderately high level of carbonation and ends with a pretty strong bitterness.

Starts off fairly strong with a great aroma but the flavor loses steam after a few sips as it transitions from juicy fruits to more of an herbal, berry hop profile with a large bitterness and a strong lime peel (like biting into a piece) bitterness and flavor.

Canned 9/1/21 and poured in a tulip glass. Pale opaque yellow in color, some ongoing effervescence but minimal head and lacing. Lemon, lime, pineapple and fresh squeezed orange juice on the nose. Flavors of lime juice, lemon zest - heavy citrus. A bit of lingering bitterness but pleasant. Decent drinking at 7%. This was a really enjoyable beer - I tend to like the DDH variants of Trilliums offerings, because they add some kick and bring out more of the flavors. Also improve the mouthfeel over the original versions, but I understand that could be a preference.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Trillium in Canton for about twenty dollars. Canned on date of 3/26. My twenty third brew from these guys. Good, not great.

Big thanks to VaTechPhilly for sending this one! Part of the box for one of the football BIFs we've done, I believe. I didn't make note of a date on the can, but consumed on 1/14/18 (two days after receipt). Poured from the 16 oz. can into an El Catador Barrel-Aged glass.

A: Pours a turbid light yellowish gold, with a half-finger of white head that doesn't stick around for too long. Not much carbonation visible in this pudding-ish looking beer.

S: Juicy tropical fruit and melon, dank and citrus. Cracker malts. Pineapple, mango, and tangerine - all juicy. Mild ruby red grapefruit, more juicy melon, and mild berries. Nice, though maybe not as juicy as some other Trillium offerings I’ve had.

T: Pineapple and orange-dominated citrus. Melon and a lesser amount of dank. Cracker malts, mild oaty grist. Some ruby grapefruit, more tropical fruits, and melon. Modestly bitter in the hang, still dripping with citrus juice.

M: Medium body for style, average carbonation. Alcohol flavors seem low.

O: This was really tasty. For once, a NE IPA I thought tasted better than it smelled. But either way, this really is really good.

In the last few weeks, I've been going through all of my Trillium beers in my massive stash. Out of all of the ones I've had so far, this was probably their most textbook example of what they brew, and what I'd picture in a good New England IPA. Dank, balanced, and juicy, there was a lot to enjoy here although I 'd to let it fully warm up to get the full experience out of my time with this!

This had plenty of opaqueness to it as the liquid nearly looked like a solid open completely pouring out. Plenty of head topped this off with a good amount of lacing left behind, as most of it was below the collar near the top of my pint glass. Lots of lime, fruit pith, kiwi, earthiness, and self-described "wet earth" in the nose as this felt like a tropical forest after a heavy rainstorm. A smooth and persistent bitterness fro the El Dorado and brightness from the Citra could easily be felt in the taste as this was equally dank and juicy at the same time. Loads of wheat gave this body and a dryness in the aftertaste that forced me to take another sip, in order to wet my palate again! Lovely body here and a light carbonation, combined with a hint of honey slickness, ensure that this would be alluring down to the last drop.

Only felt the alcohol a bit and couldn't taste it at any point during my time with this, as the amount of it was as perfect as could be. The DDH nature of this beer ensured an easygoing experience and the hint of melon at the end was enough to break through the wheat and leave me wanting more, which was how I felt after finishing this off. A solid brew from start to finish, and one of the stronger beers in Trillium's lineup!

Canned 8/2/16; drank 8/13/16 @ Golgi Apparatus.

Opaque pale yellow appearance.

Minimal bright white head; minimal lace.

Lemon, pineapple, mango & mild dry grass notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Lemon & pineapple flavors up front; dry grass notes on the finish.

Fruity & very tasty; just a hint too dry for me, but otherwise excellent.

Pours a hazy golden orange. Tangerine aroma. It's not really overflowing with aroma, to be honest, but it's definitely there. It's very tangy up front. Follows up with that familiar El Dorado chocolate covered orange taste which is coupled with some nice resiny bitterness. There's no burn, it's dry. The mouthfeel really is what stands out about this good but unremarkable beer.

Canned 17 days ago.

L -- Pours a hazy straw body that is noticeably paler than many of Trillium's offerings. Two fingers of soapy white head produced with moderate pour. Good retention and decent lacing
S -- Concord grape, red grapefruit, orange, papaya, pineapple, hint of watermelon. The El Dorado hops take center stage
T -- Pineapple, yellow grapefruit peel, leafy earthiness, orange pith, decent amount of crackery malt character
F -- Standard feel of Trillium's mid-ABV hoppy offerings: quite dry, with a crisp effervescence of tiny bubbles and minimal but oily residual bitterness. It's nice, but at the expense of the fluffiness found in other NEIPAs
O -- Interesting hop combo that works well in the DDH setting. Better than Scaled and on par with Scaled Up

Trillium does such a great job with their DDH offerings, and this one is excellent. I got a big glob of fresh, juicy hop resin out of my first can, and it was quite a treat. This one is bursting with flavor and "fizzyness", for lack of a better term.
