BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
For our 4th Anniversary, we wanted to brew something extra special and deeply rooted in Trillium's history. Congress Street was the very first IPA we brewed in 2013. Its success inspired an entire series of beers, all named after streets in Fort Point. Each of these beers uses the same base recipe featuring a different dry hop presenting a unique flavor with common ties. Building off of the Streets series, we decided to brew a beer that was a little bit of each. Using the same base recipe as all our Street beers, we dry hopped with Amarillo, Mosaic, Galaxy, El Dorado, Simcoe, & Nelson. The Streets Triple IPA is a celebratory culmination of all the Streets beers we've brewed over the past 4 years.

Hazy and orange in appearance with aromas of candied peaches and apricot, sweet white wine, lime, and orange zest on the nose. Followed by flavors of peach, stone fruits, and tropical culminating in a restrained bitterness. A soft, smooth mouthfeel rounds out the drinking experience of this surprisingly drinkable Triple IPA.

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

HOPS: Amarillo, Mosaic, Galaxy, El Dorado, Simcoe, Nelson

The color came out a beautiful orange that Trillium seems to do so well. Aromas of fruit on the nose that came through very well on the palette. Smooth mouth feel that, coupled with the flavors. hide the ABV very well

It's amazing. A heavy balancing job between lots of malt, lots of hops, and lots of alcohol. I took 0.25 off a perfect score because I can tell the heavy alcohol is going to numb my pallate and brain before I can finish the glass, but that's kind of unfair of me. All the Trillium offerings have really impressed me with how juicy hoppy they are without being unbalanced or unpleasant, they've all got just enough body to balance out the hop bitterness. This is like all those but more.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a can into a snifter. Canned 3/20/17.

A: Pours a super hazy, golden orange in color with a 1/4 inch, frothy, cream colored head with short retention. Thin, white billowy lacing throughout.

S: Big aromas of tropical fruit and citrus including pineapple, orange, tangerine, melons, grapefruit, passionfruit, and guava. Mild piney and floral hop notes.

T: Nice juicy bomb. Starts off with grapefruit and citrus rinds followed by melons, passionfruit, and guava. Finishes with a nice level of lingering, piney, resinous hop bitterness.

F: Medium bodied. Super smooth and velvety. Juicy. Slightly dry on the finish.

O: Overall, this is a great DIPA. Super juicy, but well balanced with the hop bitterness. Very crushable. Would love to try this fresh from the source and will definitely be searching for it again.

Look: Nice Look, that great hazy Trillium look

Smell: Can smell a little boozy with hops

Taste: had this a few times, most of the time not so boozy, but sometimes you can tell it is a triple.

Feel: not the best Trillium mouth feel, but I'm comparing it to other Trillium beers.

1700th review. 16 oz can was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy orange yellow color with some clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Lemony, candied fruit, apricot, peach, citrus, herbal, booze, caramel, bready, and wheaty.

Taste: You pick up all those fruity hop flavors on the palate. Nice altima back bone, boozy alcohol, mild tingly bitterness, some sweetness, and a little chewy.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium carbonation, sweetness, liht tingly bitterness, some booze, and medium bodied.

Overall: Happy anniversary Trillium. So happy to share my thoughts on another reviewing milestone. Just wish I had a few more of these to drink.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A 16 oz can date 3-20-17 poured into a TH tulip.

Appearance- A neat hazy fruit juice look with about half a finger of foamy head. An amber-orange mix and lacing all the way around the glass. What you expect from a NE IPA.

Smell- A nice mix of tropical fruits with some grapefruit. I smell more than a hint of apricot and that was fantastic for me. A little less aroma of pineapple, tangerine, orange or tangerine. A good hit of hops and pine to top it off.

Taste- More of the hops than I expected with all the fruity smell. The high ABV is there but that bitterness really sets this brew off. The fruit juice is the greatest finish for such a strong beer. Super impressive

Mouthfeel- A creamy texture with rather heavy carbonation. Some bitterness but still great.

Overall- A must have high ABV beer. You will be hard pressed to find a fruit bomb that has this mix of hops. Until now DDH Congress Street was my favorite Trillium but I have to pick this one.

Can shared by jc1762. Thanks Jon.

Hazy, bright orange body with a small, off-white collar. Aromas of orange and melon, hop forward. Medium sweetness and moderate bitterness. Lingering tangy citrus with a touch of alcohol. Pretty good.

Thanks for the can Kevin!

A- Tallboy can pours into a tasting chalice with the classic murky, hazy golden apricot body. A white cap rises with a foamy and creamy texture to about an inch high. Good head retention leading eventually to wide belt that leaves a few sheets of lace but the ABV seems to be fighting things from sticking to the glass for long.

S- Let this one warm up just a bit and the tropical and fruity hops open up quite a bit compared to straight from the fridge. The aroma is dominated by the hops with mango, tangerine, peach, orange creamsicle, pineapple and pine notes. Hops hops hops.

T- Honestly gets pretty sharp here which might be an effect of the alcohol plus the massive dose of hops. Intense citrus zest oils lend that sharp bitterness and the beer is once again all about the hops. This is extremely impressive for the ABV as there isn't even a hint of malts, sweetness or alcohol; well maybe a hint but the hops are the star far and away. Intense oranges, tangerine, mango, peach, pineapple, pine, floral and earthy hops coat the palate for days.

MF- Foamy texture with a slight creaminess as the high alcohol cuts into that thinning things out just a bit and adding a slight warming. High end carbonation makes the hops pop and it ends with a sharp grapefruit/orange oil bitterness.

Perhaps not the most dynamic hop flavor profile from a New England IPA but honestly at this ABV there are very few contenders that even come close to this; Younger being the ultimate exception to the rule. Juicy tropical fruits, bitter citrus fruits and a balance from the standard floral, pine and earthy hop notes. Glad that this IPA revolution started right down the road.

Moderate pour yields a one inch white head over a hazy, golden body with sticky lacing. Nose of candied fruit which I usually experience in a higher abv IPA such as this; also pine, citrus, and tropical fruit aromas are there as well. Tastes indeed like a DIPA on steroids, not hiding the 10% abv one bit! Feel is adequate and overall, not for the faint of heart! Triple IPA for sure!

I'm always skeptical of big TIPAs as they are usually boozy, sweet, and a malty mess to me. Somehow this drinks like an IPA with waves of flavor. The booz is hidden but the hops are not. Tropical, dank, love.

Thanks goes out to tasterschoice62 for this brew.

16 oz. Can
Canned On: 03/20/17

Pours a very nice cloudy yellow/orange color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger plus white head, which also leaves some pretty nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is very nice, hoppy, some malts, very citrusy, peaches, apricot, orangy, diesel like. The taste is really fuckn' awesome, hoppy, malty, citrusy, with some really nice peach/apricot combo, really nice diesel like, nice little sweetness going on. Full Body, ABV almost non-existent, I believe I've never had a brew this high in ABV, go down so smoothly, the fruit profile is complex, very nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is one fine brew. Never had a West Coast Style DIPA (10% ABV), go down this easy. This DIPA does not have that thick/chewyness that West Coast style DIPAs have, and that is also what get's me, very cool. Thanks Larry!

From the can. The beer pours a an orange, apricot color with pretty good head retention and lacing. On the nose, this smells great, as I pick up considerable tropical fruit (mango, apricot and peach mostly), orange citrus, and a hint of sandalwood and pine. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this excellent beer, with the bitterness in the finish more than sufficient to counter and dry out the tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is fairly full, and while the beer finishes very well, the alcohol is noticeable (reminding you that this is a 10% abv. beer). The finish is pretty dry otherwise, and the alcohol is pretty well integrated into the flavor profile.

Excellent stuff. This beer carries it's 10% abv., though it wears on you a bit after a while. Even so, this is a very impressive beer from the folks at Trillium.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

nice looking hazed golden pour with a bright white head, bigger bubbles, not the densest. some lacing.

aroma on this is way over the top and may well be the best nose ive experienced on a beer. absolutely pops with scents of pineapple, peach, grapefruit peel candied orange, bubblegum, melons, pithy slightly floral hops, mint, earthy dankness, doughy and sweet malts (I would assume this is coming more due to the few weeks of age, but I certianly dont see it as a bad thing as its a restrained and pleasant malt presence.

palate is creamy peaches, grapefruit, honey soaked mango, orange, melon, peppery floral notes, big maltyness - sweet & doughy (again, age related Im sure), minty, grassy, green, plastic dankness - action figure status, spicy hops and mellow bitter piney note on the finish. booze is there but subdued and works well with the big flavor profile.

overall this one was outstanding on the nose and good on the palate. mouthfeel was decent, medium bodied and had some texture. booze was hidden well but I can't say this one stands up to the likes of the legendary Triple Sunshine. regardless, great brew that was enjoyable and especially easy drinking given the abv.

Poured from the can into a tulip. Less hazy, more deep orange than most Trillium offerings. Sweet candied fruits, melon and stonefruit. Medium mouthfeel, not too boozy at 10%.

Fresh can poured into a Trillium tulip.

A - Orange sunburst in color. Pretty hazy. Small whitish head that settles quickly.
S - Lots of tropical fruit. Pineapple popped as soon as I poured it out.
T - Flavor is tropical but not overly done. Somewhat juicy but there's some balancing grapefruit bitterness there along with some malt sweetness. Damn good for a triple IPA.
M - Moderate carb and smooth. Sticky and a bit on the thick side.
O - Fantastic triple IPA. Dangerously drinkable at 10%. These can go down pretty easy based on how good they taste.

Canned on 3/17/17 and served in my Dialed In tulip. Pours a lovely golden-orange hue with a loose, quarter inch, off-white head that dissipates towards the shoulders leaving a residual slick across the center of the bowl. Great nose - mango, stone fruit, tangerines and citrus zest. Taste consistent with nose; however, there's an ethanol bite infused across the flavor profile that leaves a light residual medical quality between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a slight oiliness to the texture and a mild prickliness to the carbonation. Overall, very tasty. A nice offering from Trillium; however, the alcohol detracts slightly from the flavor.

Big beer, plenty sweetness with loads of citrus hops, the hops win out. Dry semi bitter finish. Medium soft feel. Impressive brew, not as juicy as their other IPAs. Liked it.

Of the 29 Trills I have had, this may be the best. Thought all those hops might make it a bit confusing, but this is a good looking, fine smelling, helluva tasty DIPA. If you like this style - get one.

A fine brew to celebrate 4 years. Well done lads. You knocked this way over the centerfield wall.

Pretty amazing beer. Tastes like tropical fruit and citrus candy. All sweetness. Loads of melon, pineapple, tangerine, and grapefruit on the nose. Nice heft to the body. Clean and easy drinking. No sign of the ABV.

This is one of the best beers I've had. Its hops profile just packs everything together in a good way. The high ABV could feel weird but it's barely noticeable in this one. Super orange look and the amount of fruit in it is incredible, so juicy. Absolutely perfect!

fresh can drank on 4/1/2017

This is certainly not as hazy as most beers but the flavors are unique, complex, and just pop. It's like candied oranges, peaches, lemon, ripe mango, and pineapple all together in some dank, crisp TIPA. Not boozy and very drinkable. Trillium killed it with this one.

Well it had to happen sometime! My 500 beer had and rated/reviwed!!
Pours a cloudy hazy orange with a nice frothy white head. Nose is bright, tropical and citrus with a slight bit of grassiness. Taste of sweet pinnaple, overripe mango and grapefruit pith. Maybe even a slight bit of a peach like nectar to it. Again getting some grasses and hay to taste also. Medium to full body crisp and fairly dry. Getting heat from the alcohol but I wouldn't say this beer is hot. It's just noticeable and a 10% it is understandable. The somewhat juicy nature of this beer hides the 10% a bit tho. Enjoyed

Fresh can poured into fluted snifter.

Orang, hazed, opaque. Slight straw tint to the head, thin and foamy. Settles into thin collar quickly.

Aroma is huge burst of sweet tropical fruits. Pineapple is noticeable from a few feet away.

Flavor is tropical, but not too much. Not a juicy bomb, more refined with citrus zest and juice and balancing grapefruit rind bitterness. Fruity sweetness.

Moderate carbonation and smooth, just above medium body.

A great brew and dangerously smooth at 10%. Balanced flavors. Does not disappoint.
