Double Dry Hopped Stillings Street IPADouble Dry Hopped Stillings Street IPA
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.

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

HOPS: Nelson Sauvin, Columbus

Pale yellow and hazy body, resembles white grapefruit juice; thin, foam, white head. The aroma bursts with citrus notes; grapefruit and orange; light biscuit underpinning. The taste brings expected citrus flavors, resembling what the smell delivers; resinous bitterness; some alcohol presence. Heavy body; acidic with a mild abrasiveness; some boozy sharpness.

I find this beer to be a nice representation of a New England hazy India pale ale.

The look is Trillium Brewing's signature hazy orange juice look, which I really think is beautiful. There was a bit of foam, but it quickly disappeared. The smell is powerful, with lime, white grape, grapefruit, and lemon scents. The flavor is quite citrusy. There are flavors of grapefruit, honeydew, white grape, and lime. It is slightly bitter. The mouthfeel is soft, juicy, and smooth, with medium carbonation. Overall, this is a delicious DDH NEIPA. All of the Trillium Brewing beers I have tried have been incredible, and this one is no exception.

A: Pours an extremely murky bright medium golden orange in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate bright orange + pale orange + bright yellow + pale golden yellow + apricot colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall soapy sudsy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of mottled very thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy tropical/mango + tropical/passionfruit + citrus/lemon zest + gooseberry + vinous/white grape hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + wheat malts with a light amount of sugary sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + wheat malts with a light amount of sugary sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy tropical/mango + tropical/passionfruit + citrus/lemon zest + gooseberry + vinous/white grape hops which impart a hint of bitterness which fades away quickly leaving light to moderate lingering tropical + gooseberry + vinous hop flavors.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp initially with a light to moderate amount of soft/fluffiness mid-body and a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a pleasant mouthfeel with a hint of crispness upfront and some light to moderate soft/fluffiness with light dryness. Very enjoyable hop profile that is heavy on the Nelson Sauvin.

Picked up a 16oz single from the Blue Door Bottleshop in Hendersonville 10-7-22 for $9.50. No canning date; consumed 10-13-22.

Beer poured a hazy golden orange with a pretty good head that dissipated quickly.

Nose is awesome initially with a burst of tropical fruits which have subsided as the beer rests in the glass.

Taste is a light pale malt base that is flavored by grapes, lime, and kiwi. Finishes with a solid gooseberry bitterness; 7/10 on my scale.

Mouthfeel is delightfully light and very refreshing.

Overall a very good NEIPA!

Funky, fresh, dank and boozy, apparently there's a party down on Stillings Street, and Trillium Brewing is our host.

With a pour of hazy pour of banana-yellow, the opaque and matte finishes Double Dry Hopped Stillings Street IPA builds a frothy meringue while it teases the nose with a radiant citronella perfume of dank herb, citrus, wine and tropical fruit with a touch of patchouli. A gentle sweetness of cereal, agave and powdered sugar and light cream frame the beer's malty balance early in its taste.

But then the rise of hops quickly meet and then exceed the intensity of grain with strong, ripe and radiant impressions of grapefruit, lime, gooseberry, white grape, under ripened orange, mango and passionfruit. All wrapped in the juiciness of honeydew, the beer develops a late bitterness of peppery grasses, hemp, gin-like botanicals, fresh spruce, green tea and verbena to offset the lingering sweetness and to bring a brisk, drying and refreshing finish.

Medium bodied and trending drier, more bitter and even slighlty tart, a notion of dry sherbet decorates the finish with an eventual balance that treads on the bitter side of bitter-sweet with a linger of fruit peel, hemp and cereal.

Picked-up a four-pack of cans at Trillium in Canton for about twenty dollars. My fifty second brew from these guys. Good, not worth the $.

Looking into a glass of orange juice, wait that is beer! Color of OJ with a teeny head. Nose is floral and citrus. Taste is as good as any NE Style IPA, yet the aftertaste is impeccable. Nice bitter bite with a followthrough that would rival any out there.

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!

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.
