Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.30%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Last year 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 surrounding our first brewery. 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, Vic Secret, & Enigma. This year's recipe of The Streets Triple IPA is a celebratory culmination of all the Streets beers we've brewed over the past 5 years, and our continued exploration of fermentation profiles.

Fruity esters produced by this year's fermentation profile shine through in the aroma and flavor. Hazy and orange in appearance with a strong nose of strawberry, tropical fruit, lime, pineapple and melon rind. A palate of pineapple, over ripe fruit, subtle grapefruit pith, and a subtle sweetness is complemented by a balancing bitterness. A full, creamy mouthfeel rounds out this surprisingly drinkable Triple IPA.

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

HOPS: Amarillo, Mosaic, Galaxy, El Dorado, Simcoe, Nelson, Vic Secret, Enigma

Really glad I was able to take an extended lunch break to try this much talked about beer.

Appearance-wise, it takes on the typical Trillium look - opaque with solid head retention. Wow what an aroma - smacked me in the face - grapefruit, resiny pine, heaven. However, the taste is a little overkill. I can tell it was brewed with 6 different hops - flavors are all over the place but ultimately it feels like I'm chewing on grapefruit skin.

This is very good, but a little overhyped. People go nuts for this beer every year, I would try again but not go out of my way for it.

Another huge thanks goes out to Jay for this. Cheers!

The Streets, as expected, pours like paint from the can. A cardboard yellow body is capped by peaked egg whites that have been tanned slightly. The foam as it settles has a shimmer to it, like a bubble bath. The left overs leave only spots, but a shake froth remains at the surface.

Very citrus forward with tropical fruits playing support. An unusual twist par for the style. Grapefruit, rind, and pine cover up a little mango preserves dabbed over some vanilla ice cream.

The flavor is much more juice saturated than the aroma would suggest, though their is an element of full pulp orange juice. It reminds me of those clear plastic containers filled with peeled peaches and mango you'd get as a kid in your lunch box, but clementines and wet pine needles were thrown in. One thing I didn't get in my He-Man tin pail was some alcohol, and there's quite a bit noticeable in this one.

No question that The Streets is full bodied. Creamy even sticky, but a dose of carbonation fights to make itself noticed, mostly by bringing it's good friend bitterness along for the ride. I must say the most noticeable traits here are the welcomed bitterness, and the hot alcohol burn.

I vaguely remember The Streets from last year, but I do remember it was good. This is too. Definitely a one a done, meaning I wouldn't drink two in a row, but I'd welcome this again. Until next year (hopefully)! Cheers.

Canned On 05/03/18, 11:10:52.

Pours a beautiful mango hued orange, slightly viscous with a frothy two inch head of foam that quickly bubbles away and leaves heavy lace around the glass.

Strong tropical aromas, candy sweet. Mango juice, guava nectar, tangerine, and pineapple all play around your nose... no bitter indicators, no booziness.. pure juice.

Incredible. More of that candy sweetness. Straight mango juice, with complimentary pineapple and orange. Some lingering bitterness, and hardly any present booze. Absolutely can’t believe this is 10.3%.

Medium body, good level of carbonation. No residual stickiness, just pure creamy juice that goes down with a nice warmth.. the only indicator of the high ABV on this beer.

16oz. can into a Heady Topper stemless snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Probably the muddiest NE IPA I've seen to date. Nose is pineapple, mango, papaya and citrus. Super juicy and dank. Heavily aromatic. Outstandingly enticing. The aroma is as good as the look is bad. Beer opens citrus and pineapple. A good bit of acidity followed by some pulpiness and fresh fruit juice. Mango and melon in the middle with bright citrus fruit swirling around those flavors. Finishes with more fresh pineapple and orange. Juicy finish. Body is medium with moderate carbonation. A little prickly in the mouth and goes down sparkling and aggressive. Dry yet juicy finish that coats the palate and lingers. Nice but I wish this was a touch smoother.

This is easily one of the most memorable IPAs I've had from Trillium which is saying a lot. Definitely worth seeking out.

This beer is a masterpiece in the triple IPA category. It's 10.3% ABV, and drinks like any other of their DIPAS.

Amazing look of dark orange juice in the glass. Super cloudy.

Smell is addictive and balanced, strawberries, orange, pineapple, grapefruit, lime zest, just an awesome nose.

Taste is incredibly balanced for such high ABV. Alcohol is well hidden and the hops really stand out all the way through. Hints of orange, grapefruit, kiwi, pineapple, cantaloupe, unripe strawberry and lemon/lime zest. Mouthfeel is typical trillium DIPA, creamy, medium carbonation, dry finish.

Given how smooth yet complex this beer was for such a high ABV, and a date on the can, there is nothing much else to say other than this beer nailed the style of a TIPA. An incredible offering worthy of celebrating 5 years of IPAs by Trillium.
