Notes: This amplified version of Stillings Street IPA features a double dose of Nelson Sauvin in the dry hop. Hazy, pale orange in appearance with intensely aromatic qualities of kiwi, white grape and lemongrass on the nose. Delicate flavors of citrus zest, pineapple and cantaloupe are accentuated with crisp malt character, mild bitterness, and a soft, effervescent mouthfeel.

16 oz can at share. Milky hazy straw-colored pour, small frothy head. Aroma is light hops with a hint of citrus. Taste is more of that same citrusy juicy tropical New England style IPA, but the dry hopping adds another layer of bitterness on to this already luxurious beer. Stellar.

Sweet white wine grape, tropical hoppy, and citrus-dank nose on this one! Taste follows with a slightly malty, tropical hoppy, and grapefruit citrus bitter finish. This has nice depth and mouthfeel for a single. This is good stuff!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Cloudy, pale orange with two fat fingers of foamy, off-white head. Decent retention gives way to soapy lacing.

Big orange citrus (clementine, honeybell), mango, pineapple, white wine and white pepper in the aroma.

The same basic elements carry to the taste, fairly sweet up front, with a little creamy vanilla and some very light herbal bitterness added to the mix. That herbal bitterness and a little grapefruit pith linger in the aftertaste.

Medium bodied, fluffy feel, with a slow-building zip to the carbonation.

A great example of the style.

Very balanced DIPA between the slight hop bite and the surrounding juice. Medium carbonation with a lightly dry finish.

A bit more body and this would be next level. Overall, a really good DIPA for me.

L: Hazy yellow with a tint of orange, big bubbled head that dissipates leaving very little lacing.

S: Pungent Nelson hops. Classic grapefruit, gooseberry, pineapple, and Sauvignon Blanc.

T: Big, Resinous flavor of grapefruit juice, gooseberry, and pineapple. Very nicely balanced by a clean, lightly candied malt flavor and a firm bitterness.

F: Medium bodied, fluffy, dry, crisp finish.

Overall: An incredible showcase of Nelson Sauvin hops. Perfectly crafted and executed, this is a must buy in my opinion. One of the best NEIPAs I have ever tasted.

I love me some DDH Trillium IPAs and this is a good one. Hazy straw colored yellow in appearance - a bit ‘wetter’ and thinner looking than some of the other Trillium DIPAs but still inviting. Getting some melon, papaya, and lemon zest aromas and flavors of the same with something almost like a white wine in there, too. Nice mouthfeel, smooth and rich but not too syrupy or heavy.

Dated 11/6/19 on the bottom of the can, just under 3 weeks since canning.

Pours an opaque golden straw with a finger and a half of rocky off-white head. Nose of resin, fresh hop cones, papaya, lemongrass, grape must, cantaloupe, a hint of orange peel and biscuits. Taste follows the nose however is a bit more balanced, not as bursting with fruit flavors as the nose; with a focus on the melon, resin and papaya. Medium body, medium- carbonation, a good mix of bitterness and sweetness with a sticky herbaceous aftertaste. Another great brew from Trillium, not their best offering but would be wonderful to introduce someone to the NEIPA trend that is only used to west coast IPAs.

This was another beer from Trillium that I traded for a while ago, as the date on the bottom of the can was 3/28/17 (yes, I'm a bit behind!). Like most of their other beers that I've had this was quite smooth and held up well over time as there was only a trace amount of sediment left on the bottom of my pint glass when I had finished this off. The double dry hopping could be felt here as this went down easily and almost felt like a white wine in a can!

Not a bad pour to this as the liquid was a muted apricot with some light seeping around the edges. There was enough head to top it off as the lacing was haphazard down the side of my pint glass as I worked my way through this. Loads of Nelson Sauvin in the nose as this quite dry, with plenty of white wine, grape, and kiwi in the nose as all of those were present in the taste to a larger extent. Some tangerine, vanilla cream, and dank pineapple came through in the taste as that was more heavier than the aroma was. Tons of stone fruit rind came through as this warmed up the malt was relatively basic - along the lines of cracker or bread, but the white wine and associated woody notes were the dominant notes here, from start to finish...

Not a lot of booze here as I only felt a moderate amount of warming take hold of me by the time I finished this off. Not one of Trillium's best but this was a solid beer that showcased the Nelson Sauvin beautifully and if you're into that, you need to get your hands on this! Not as dry as I thought, this had balance to it as well and it would be something that I'd reach for again, should I ever get my hands on it!

Pours an opaque orange with a finger of white foam. Head retention is okay. Aroma is orange, grapefruit, papaya, and watermelon. Nice tropical fruit aromatics, with light wheaty, biscuity malt notes behind. Flavor profile is grapefruit, papaya, orange, and light mango with light wheaty, biscuity malt notes behind. Big flavor with an aroma to match. Still, it doesn't scream tropical fruits or get right in your face to announce its presence. Good balance here. Mouth feel is lightly grainy, with a fuzzy, dry finish. It has a medium thickness. Overall, a splendid beer with big hop notes in both the aroma and flavor profile, while still allowing malts to peek through. Make no mistake, the hops are the story here though.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

Looks great and smells fine but compared to DDH Fort Point this is a bit of a let-down. Bought in Boston and drank fresh. Side-by-side with DDH Fort Point and DDH Melcher Street, this was the middle of the three----but still an overall great Trillium beer!

Reviewed 10/30/21.

From a 16oz can dated 10/13/21 into a tulip.

Pours an opaque yellowish orange with about two fingers of white head that dissipated relatively quickly leaving decent lacing.

Smells of big citrus (oranges, grapefruit), mango, pineapple and grapes.

Taste follows with a grapey, white winey taste. Citrus and pineapple are dominant as well.

Soft, smooth mouthfeel with slight acidity. Medium carbonation. Mild bitter aftertaste.

Overall, they hit this one out of the park. This drinks so easily.

Another excellent DDH Street Series IPA. This one is really smooth with excellent hop flavor, though it doesn't explode in the mouth like DDH Farnsworth did for me. The drinkability factor is high due to the mouth-feel. Overall, an excellent mid-ABV IPA that is a pleasure to drink.

Look- Poured aggressively into a Trillium tulip glass. With a two finger head. Picture does not do the color of this beer justice. Its a beautiful opaque and turbid yellow. 4.25

Smell- Could smell the "juiciness" as soon as I opened the can. Upon pouring into the glass, I got huge whiffs of Melon, particularly cantaloupe, kiwi, tangerines, papaya and pineapple. Extremely inviting. 4.5

Taste- Taste follows suit with the smell. Big flavors of pineapple, papaya, and melon. Although this beer has the juicy NEIPA flavor going on, I am extremely happy that there is a solid hop bite to it. 4.5

Feel- Wonderful. Soft, approachable, and lingers on the tongue for a while. Just about perfect. 4.5

Overall- Just a spot on example for the style. Soft and approachable, but still makes it known that it's an IPA. With everyone doing a NEIPA now a days, this is what they all should strive for.

Canned 11 days ago.

Pours hazy orange with a finger of solid white head.

The nose is orange, lemon custard, and doughy malt. Round and sweet-smelling.

The taste is orange and peach up front, with some drying bitterness on the backend. It doesn't pop quite as much as the best Trillium beers.

The mouthfeel is just south of medium.

Overall, very good but not top-tier Trillium.

Canned 8 days ago. My 50th review of a Trillium beer!

L -- Pours a hazy golden orange with a slight milky hue and two fingers of solid white head produced with moderate pour. Decent retention and good lacing
S -- Musky cattiness, white grape, dank earthiness, guava, pear, kiwi, orange cream. Subdued but quite unique and pleasant
T -- Zesty grapefruit, resinous weedy botanicals, light fusels, crackery malt. Not as classically nelson as the aromas
F -- Medium mouthfeel, medium carb. Creamy yet bitter, with some but not all of it dropping out on the finish
O -- Yet another great Street IPA in the Trillium lineup. I do think their best utilization of nelson comes in their Dialed In series

the smell on this one is a rich orange citrus note. nice look, smell and mouthfeel. The taste is great off the nose, but the bitter hoppyness starts in the middle and lingers through to aftertaste.

Picked up a 4 pack of this at the brewery while visiting JLindros. Canned on 2/27.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a nice hazy, golden orange milkshake hue with a fat one finger white head that fades nice and slowly to leave a creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of excellent musty citrus, orange peel and light juice, very nice melon notes as well. Kiwis and vinous white grapes, nice soft lemon notes, little bit of malts. Nose just pops.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of musty melons and citrus peel. Very pleasant lemon notes as well along with melon and flashes of kiwi. Good musty grape skins as well. Light crackery wheat and malts. Nice and lingeringly bitter finish.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, crisp, clean.

O - Overall this was possibly the best recent hoppy beer I've had from Trillium, in fact, this might be the best hoppy offering I've had from them since them opened the place in Canton. Great Nelson notes here. Just lovely.

On tap. Haven’t had one of these hop milkshakes in a minute! Right in line with many of the rest in terms of looks, aroma, flavor. Powerful nose of fruit and juice. Flavor is really nice but it dies off sort of fast. Pretty yummy.

[From Notes | Consumed 8/13/17]

@ Trillium (Canton)

Dull, murky orange with not much of a head. Big Nelson notes in the nose...kiwi, lemongrass, light grape, just a bit of hoppy sharpness. Deliciously dank and oily Nelson hop flavors: green herbs, berries, pineapple, light citrus oils. The feel is typically soft and fluffy. Very enjoyable.

Outstanding. Another winner on tap at Trillium's Canton location. Great, sweet palate with a rich body. The nuances of this palate don't quite hold up relative to DDH Fort Point or DDH Melcher: specifically, the citrus falls off and the high-notes of the palate aren't quite as robust as some of the other Trillium brews sampled today. Excellent nonetheless.
