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

Double Dry Hopped Scaled growler fresh from the Canton Brewery, poured into a Proclamation tulip glass. Along the same lines of many Trillium Pale/IPAs - cloudy, aromatic, juicy, delicious. What makes this one different from say, Fort Point or Congress Street? Damned if I know. More hops = more expensive ($23/64oz). Someday I'll do a side-by-side and see if I can detect the nuance. But for now I'll enjoy another superb Trillium offering!

EDIT: Same day edit- that's a first! Anyways, just tasting a pint of Congress Stree - it has some very different characteristics and taste from the Scaled. I suppose all great breweries have their trademark taste, whether it's from yeast or grain or hops.

My Trillium reviews are getting repetitive. Amazing pineapple, mango, tangerine juice bomb. No other brewery does IPA's, DIPA's and pales like Trillium. No one. #fanboy

Pours a completely opaque bright golden orange color with a 2 finger fluffy white head. The head is gone quickly but leaves some beautiful cobweb lacing around the glass.

The aroma is very tropical and citrusy. I get plenty of mango, pineapple, honeydew melon, and orange rind. There are also some subtle grassy notes and a faint hint of sweet, doughy malt.

The taste is a lot more bitter and piney than the nose, with notes of lime, grass, and grapefruit. I also get some orange and a touch of grain from the malt.

The mouth is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Creamy, yet extremely dry on the finish.

Overall, another great IPA from Trillium. The flavors are a bit disappointing given how blown away I was by the aroma, but it's still very well done, and extremely well balanced.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

16 oz can poured into spegaleu IPA glass canned on 5/16

A: Very little head sits atop a dirty yellow gold body.

S: lots of pineapple and yeast, a little honeydew and sweetness.

T: Lots of pineapple, a little floral, and herbal hops

M: Medium to fuller body with decent carbonation.

O: It's too dirty tastes like an unfiltered Homebrew. The beer has no structure and too much of a yeastdriven taste. If I would hide the label on this someone would tell me I was trying to feed them an unfinished beer. Because it is Trillium people fall all over themselves for it.

A 16 oz. can date 2-14-2017 poured into a TH Teku goblet.

Look- A very hazy orange to yellow and thick. Around 1 finger of foamy head that dissipated quickly. Nice lacing down the glass but rather thin.

Smell- A huge aroma of citrus. Orange, grapefruit, pineapple and some others. A subtle touch of hop and pine in there too.

Taste- A massive hop blast. The grapefruit and orange citrus was dominant. The finish was fantastic with the hog and pine notes really shining. Finished dry and the taste was more subtle.

Feel- Crisp and next to no carbonation. It was super drinkable.

Overall- A fantastic double IPA. Such a super juicy flavor with a fantastic hop kick. Not really like anything I have tried before. Definitely get some of this if you get the chance.

1/19/16 bottling date. 4 days old!

A: Unbelievably cloudy orange pour. Completely opaque. Doesn't look far from drinking a lightened orange juice. Small fizzy white head that sticks around decently well enough. Doesn't seem to stick to the glass at all though.

S: Oh yeah. Super juicy. Pineapple, oranges, limes and hints of grapefruit. Hints of herbal and spicy hops but it's pretty much all juice all the time otherwise.

T: More of the same. It's not intensely bitter especially given the freshness and the abundance of hops. But boy do those tropical fruits shine. Definite lime in there and in spades. Don't taste that too often so it really stood out. Pineapple, grapefruit, citrousy flavors in general. Turns into more of a spicy, herbal, almost garlicky flavor in the finish for a bit. Long lingering drying hop bomb of an aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied, soft and smooth.

O: Hell of a nice IPA. Soft mouthfeel reminds me of a HF or TH IPA. It's bitter but the bitterness doesn't stand out - the hops do. Great kaleidoscope of flavors.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Trillium snifter. Bottled 5 days ago on 19Jan16. Thank you Big Julius for picking this one up for me in Boston.

Pours a super hazy, orange-juice-like body with a frothy white two finger head that reduces slowly to leave pretty heavy lacing. Really nice looking. One of the most cloudy beers I've ever seen.

Aromas are apparent the second you open the bottle, huge citrus and sharp, potent, crisp tropical fruits, oranges, lime, anise, grapefruit, pineapple juice, damn this smells amazing! Perfect. Definitely going to be a fruit bomb.

Taste follows the nose, pineapple, citrus, grapefruit, vivid fruits followed by a slightly peppery, floral hop zing with a touch of bitterness that lingers for half a minute. Superb balance. Medium low carbonation with a medium -light body (I don't want to say watery, but a little dilute, but if the flavor matched the nose this beer would have been perfect).

Great beer, just straight hop juice. So raw, balanced, and tropical. Another killer from Trillium

Thanks Mike! 8 days old at time of drinking.

Pours this hazy, completely opaque pineapple juice/orange juice looking color.

Aroma is an explosion of pineapple juice followed by sweet orange and tangerine. Mango, peach, apricot, bittersweet grapefruit just tons and tons of overly juicy tropical and citrus notes!

Flavor is also a crazy amount of fresh squeezed pineapple juice, orange juice, tangerine, mango and grapefruit followed by an earthy dank note. Complete and utter juice bomb with a nice dank finish.

Medium bodied with a super creamy mouthfeel and a nice dry finish. Not overly bitter, but provides enough bitterness and dryness to balance those crazy juicy fruit notes.

A new favorite for sure! Reminds me a lot of what Hoof Hearted is doing in Ohio. Awesome beer!

Revisited this one and a pleasant reminder that Trillium is just tops in this NE IPA brew IMO. Simply in another league when compared to other NE IPAs!

Bottled on 1/19/16 enjoyed on 1/23/16 Poured into a tulip glass, thanks Ryan for grabbin these for us.

Literally pours like its a glass of pineapple juice with a splash of orange. Completely turbid looking.

Decent lacing as the glass empties.

The smell is what really gets me ! The second I cracked the cap, Bamm ! Pineapples for days, with a touch of orange.

Taste is very close to the smell for me, lots of citrus. Pineapple, bit of orange and maybe a hint of lime ? Extreme juiciness here, these folks got it going on. I concur with most other reviewers here about all aspects of his brew. It's a supreme NE IPA.

The feel is incredibly smooth, I didn't notice much bitterness here, which I like at times. Creamy feel with medium carbonation. As you close your mouth to swallow, there is just this smooth easy feeling without a ton of dry bite, which I really like.

Overall, a total fruity fantastical juice bomb ! Trillium is crushing it and I apload their efforts.

Seek them out at all costs. Cheers !
