World-Class
Notes: Collaboration with Monkish Brewing Co.

Following up on our previous collaboration with our good friends from Monkish Brewing, is an all Citra Triple IPA. Pouring a gorgeous pale orange with heavy, milky haze, bright aromas of ripe mango, juiced citrus, and pineapple burst from the glass delicately underpinned with floral spruce tip. Bold orange peel upfront develops into a palate layered with waves of tropical melon, ripe papaya, lychee and lime. With a gentle touch of pine and a pleasant biscuity sweetness, displays a full body and smooth pillowy mouthfeel that makes each returning sip enjoyable.

MALT: Two Row, Malted Oats, Flaked Wheat, White Wheat, Crystal malt, Dextrine, Dextrose

HOPS: Citra

16 oz. can. Hazy yellow. Smells of booze, lime, herbal notes, and tropical fruit. A little acidic. Tastes acidic up front, but it dies down quickly. Sweet pale malt. Tropical fruit and some citrus. Boozy finish. Heavy IPA. Drinks strangely well for such a huge IPA.

L - murky pour with thick, impenetrable haze. Looks like mud. Dark orange mango juice. Menacing, almost. Big-bubbled head that dissipates a little less quickly than typical Trillium fare, but I can already tell it's not going to stick around long.

S - hits hard with lime and bread. Toasted orange peel and graham crackers. Pithy pineapple, vegetal qualities, and hop puree. Smells like choking down hops. That's a good thing. If hops were air, I could breathe this.

T - lively burst of grapefruit juice. Some serious depth of flavor, featuring papaya, guava, apricot, and bubblegum if "hops" were a flavor. Warming, doughy orange peel and loads of citrus pith. Oat bitterness. Full and suffocating in flav. Rindy OJ, complete with pulp. Pineapple freshness. Syrupy candy on the finish that quicky zips it up with some tingly bitterness and lingering dryness.

F - pillowy. Yes, generic description, but it's true. It's seriously full and satisfying. An elixir to behold.

O - just wow. Such flavor range. Like wringing out every last bitter drop of your favorite ball of citrus. If I lived in the middle ages, I might think this has healing properties. In fact, I think I might be coming down with something (bit of a sore throat), but this is curing me up nicely. Hearing reviews saying it's too green so I'm glad I sat on my can for a month. It's perfect now.

On tap at Fort Point

L -- Very hazy amber orange body with a small layer of fine white foam that actually retains fairly well.
S -- Somewhat hard to pick out the nuances because Trillium is currently serving in single-use cups. Orange creamsicle, weedy dankness, dried leaves, mango
T -- Tootsie roll, syrupy dank hop candy, green onion, citrus pith, bit of green yeasty character on the back end
F -- A bit chalky and syrupy. Big mouthfeel, medium- carb
O -- Eh, another TIPA that smells good but kinda loses it in the flavors/mouthfeel

Insert Hip Hop Reference There, a masterful collab from Trillium x Monkish. Brilliant marigold haze on the pour, capped by a stunning billowy white head that sticks around longer than J Lo's a$$ when she's leaving the room. Aromas of creamy mango custard, a light herbal effervescence, and subtle notes of tropical fruit. Taste follows with a battle for superiority between lemon curd, mango lassi, and pineapple. There's a touch of heat on the back end, but it does not diminish or overwhelm the palate. Soft, chewy, and fully mouthcoating, this beer seduces you with each sip taken. The hype on this one is realer than real. If you're fortunate to get a can, pinch yourself. Hip Hop, you're the love of my life.
