Notes / Commercial Description:
Double Dry Hopped Farnsworth Street is an amped up version of the original with a doubled addition of the Australian origin Vic Secret hop. Intense aromas of melon, orange, mango, and a hint of zesty pine on the nose. The flavors of orange creamsicle, pineapple, cantaloupe absolutely leap out of this luxuriously smooth iteration of our intensely hopped Street Series IPAs.

HOPS: Vic Secret, CTZ

Dated 6/10/19 on the bottom of the can, a month since brewing.

Pours a nearly opaque dirty gold with two + half fingers of creamy head. Nose absolutely bursting with fresh mango and orange, followed by cantaloupe, earthiness, resin, a little papaya and toasted white bread. The flavors on the palette, however, are much more balanced with the malt. I also get a little bit of mint, herbaceousness and pink grapefruit at the end of the taste. Much more "East meets West coast" on the taste than the nose, with a leaning towards west coast. Something different than the usual fruit smoothie from Trillium. Medium- drying, medium bitterness, medium- sweetness. Definitely pick this one up if you enjoy a good bitter west coast ipa, but still want some tropical notes in there!

16oz can dated 11/14/17.

Pours cloudy gold with a cream-of wheat head. Tattered lacing with nice retention. Melons, lime leaves, pear, and apricot in the nose. Medium bodied with a creamy but slightly crisp mouthfeel. Ripe, juicy citrus on the palate with zero malt and a medium bitterness. Grapefruit with melons and hard peaches. Finishes a bit spicy with lemon-zest undertones and quite dry.

Great beer with a somewhat unique hop profile.

Thanks goes out to colby600 for this brew.

16 oz. Can
Canned On: 11/14/17

Poured into a Trillium glass a very nice cloudy yellow/orangy color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger white head, which also leaves some very nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, peach, mango, pineapple, cantaloupe), nice little diesel like. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, peach, mango, pineapple, cantaloupe), nice little diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden pretty well, with a pretty nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a pretty tasty brew. Addictive! Orange Julius! Glad to have gotten a chance to try it. Thanks Bill!

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Trillium Brewing Company, Boston, MA
Canned on 11/14/17
Served in a tulip

Milkshake-like appearance. The opaque body was topped by a finger-tall, super tight and frothy, bone white crown that quickly dropped to a thin halo. Minimal streaky lacing.

The aroma was outstanding. Super hoppy and fruity. Intense tropical fruit notes. Mango and passionfruit came through big time. Quite peachy too. Strong honeydew melon notes. Some citrus as well. Orange and tangerine came to mind.

The flavor profile was also very solid but definitely less complex than the nose. Juicy orange and tangerine notes dominated. Tart and wheaty in the center. Slightly lemony. Touch of mango. White grapefruit appeared as the beer moved along the palate. A dry, chalky, yeastiness came through on the back end. The beer finished pithy and fairly bitter with strong notes of orange and grapefruit rinds. A piney, resiny flavor lingered after the swallow.

Creamy and slick mouthfeel. Medium bodied for the style. The liquid contained a fine, moderate effervescence that turned frothy and smooth on the palate.

Double Dry Hopped Farnsworth Street IPA is a really enjoyable beer with a fantastic aroma, but it lacked a bit of complexity in the flavor and finished more yeasty and bitter than I would have liked. A solid offering overall but perhaps not one of Trillium’s more notable releases in this series.

Consumed 4/3/18

A: Somewhere between tangerine gold and pale orange - extra hazy and turbid, even for Trillium's standards - pours with a small, bright white head, fades to a few wisps, small collar, leaves some streaks of lacing

S: Holy Australian hops, Batman - if you've encountered Vic Secret before, you can probably guess the aroma on this one - bright, fresh-cut grass blended with mango and pine - some citrus, mostly orange flesh and zest - herbal, green, woodsy hops, with some grass-like aromas (imagine tropical grass) - some earth and pine - tropical notes, mostly mango, melon, and cantaloupe - pale malts at the base

T: Spicy citrus, with some orange flesh and grapefruit zest - floral citrus - green, woodsy, earthy, herbal, somewhat grassy - some spicy pine and some sharp mint - some tropical notes, melon, mango, and cantaloupe - medium bitterness - spicy flavor that basically tastes like hop pellets, common to these DDH Trillium beers - pale malts at the base

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth with some hoppy spice

O: Good news everyone!

I'm adding Vic Secret to my list of "hops that work better with other hops." It has a very distinctive flavor, and apparently my tongue/brain has decided it's too much when it is center stage. That being said, I still always enjoy these DDH IPAs.

Update, 4/22/18: DDH Farnsworth is actually better after sitting (in the fridge) for a few weeks. The raw, leafy edge of Vic Secret has been toned down enough that the other flavors shine brighter. I am bumping my taste from 3.75 to 4.0.

Can shared by Matthew. Thank you, sir!

Hazy, yellow body with a small white collar. Aromas of melon, ripe oranges, loads of fresh hops. Similar flavor profile. Medium high bitterness. Tasty.

16oz can, Trillium snifter glass. Cloudy golden yellow body, pulpy and hazy with a one and half finger thick, frothy white head, good retention, plenty of lacing. Smell is distinct zesty grapefruit plus a fair bit of freshly squeezed oranges, fairly herbal, actually. A medium lighter caramel nose, mildly sugary. Light herbal leafiness. Flavour comes together a bit more here- the grapefruit combines nicely with the mild sugariness in a nice way. Leafy herbal notes, mild spice, oranges and tropical fruit. Really nice and comes together well. Medium bodied, soft and good carbonation, mild spicy zest on the finish.

Pours hazy, orange-gold in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is tangerine, starfruit, cracker and guava. Medium-heavy bodied, moderate carbonation and bitter. Makes for a really good bitter ipa. Regular Farnsworth is one of my favorites of the streets series. While I prefer regular Farnsworth Street, this one is solid. Would get this again.

A- Tallboy pours into a pint glass with a very hazy, floury yellow-golden body and a thick creamy white cap. The frothy head rises to two fingers with good retention leaving thick sheets of lace after each sip.

S- Fruity and floral as hops saturate the nose. Notes of creamsicle (seriously), oranges, tangerine, clementine, pineapple and lesser suggestions of mango, grapes, berries and herbs.

T- Opens up quite a bit more here compared to the aroma as things feel much more distinct while the aroma seemed more well blended. Creamsicle, pineapple, tangerines and grapefruit lead the way with hints of mango, mandarins, pine, zesty citrus peels, vinous grapes, berries, herbs and jolly ranchers (extremely bright fruits). A slight bit of raw wheat and barley in the backdrop.

MF- Medium bodied with a creamy and frothy consistency. A moderately level of carbonation and a zesty orange peel bitterness lingering in the finish.

A lot going on with tons of citrus fruits and some tropical juice also coming to mind. Comes off as just a bit muddled as none of the flavors are really starring. The distinct pineapple and creamsicle flavors are really interesting.
