Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed in celebration of our Third Anniversary, Dialed In is a dank, juicy Double IPA intensively dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy. Pouring a vibrant, hazy gold; aromas of white wine, tropical fruit, and faint pine sap swirl around the nose. To enhance depth and complexity of the uniquely fruity, white grape flavors provided by Nelson, we integrated Sauvignon Blanc juice mid- fermentation. The potent addition of Galaxy hops provide enhanced notes of bright citrus, mango and pineapple. Soft and creamy with moderate bitterness; Medium-Light bodied with a crisp, dry finish.

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

HOPS: Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy, Columbus

Canned 2 weeks ago.

L -- Canonical Trillium milky DIPA orange haze. Aerated pour produces a small, quickly receding white head that leaves some lacing
S -- Getting a lot of fresh Galaxy on the nose: pineapple, dank weedy resins, fresh cut garlic, the whole nine yards. Maybe a hint of grape character from the nelson and Sauvignon Blanc juice
T -- Nice balance between the grapey, herbaceous nelson character, the dank tropical Galaxy character, and the Sauvignon Blanc juiciness. Yeast bite is a lot more restrained than any other Trillium DIPA I've had yet -- perhaps due to the new fermentation profile?
F -- Medium+ mouthfeel, medium carb. Pretty restrained bitterness, but not surprisingly still getting a lot of hop character
O -- One of my favorite Trillium DIPAs to date, up there with Vicinity and the Cutting Tiles variants. Pricey

Quite subtle grapes - I felt like the pinot gris had a far more distinctive taste and texture to it. These variants seem to have more of a tropical fruit and soft, sweet taste to them than any specific actual wine-like notes to the taste. The dry finish is a nice clean change from the other sweet IPAs I've had - no lingering aftertaste. Thumbs up there.

I prefer this variant over the pinot gris - but neither has particularly blown me away. Both are good, but not outstanding. Fort Point makes my taste buds far, far happier.
