Notes: In August of 2015, we released our first ever collaboration beer and the first of many with Brooklyn, NY's Other Half Brewing. An Obvious Pale Ale, Green Street was brewed with Sam on our original Fort Point brewhouse. Four years and many collabs later, we've decided to revisit and revamp this foundational recipe.
Double Dry Hopped Green Street offers a complex melange of tropical and citrus fruit notes. Aromas of fresh-pressed orange juice, lemon zest, and candied pineapple jump out of the glass. A playful bubblegum characteristic washes over the back of the palate and modest bitterness begs for another sip. Both ourselves and Other Half have come a long way in the past four years. Double Dry Hopped Green Street is a wonderful example of all the things we've learned in the time since that original brew day.

16oz can, Trillium snifter glass. Cloudy golden yellow body, one finger white head, short retention, minimal lacing. Smell is overripe melon, tropical fruit, a fair bit of resin, sugar, light caramel, touch of herbal resin. Flavour follows, more of a mildly astringent sweetness, ripe melon, a bit of papaya, light grapefruit, sugary caramel. Medium bodied, soft and creamy, solid carbonation, mildly herbal bitterness on the backend.

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Trillium Brewing Company, Boston, MA
Canned on 08/30/19
Served in a tulip

The beer poured a hazy, dark apricot color and was topped by a small, bubbly mass that quickly dissolved. No lacing whatsoever. A thin collar encircled the liquid, but it too was fairly short lived.

The aroma was pretty unremarkable. Moderately hoppy, but no specific hoppy elements really stood out. Bit of candied peach. Slightly sweet. Citrus was also apparent. Orange and tangerine came to mind. Hint of pineapple too. The sweetness became slightly more pronounced as the beer warmed. A subtle bubblegum-like yeastiness was also detectable.

This flavor was punchier than the nose, bit it too lacked some “pop.” Citrus notes dominated. Lots of orange and tangerine. Good dose of citrus rind-like pith. Some tart lemon and pineapple appeared in the center. More pithy, citrus rind-like bitterness on the back end and the finish. Dry yeasty notes lingered after the swallow. As the beer warmed, the bitterness intensified.

Like the aroma and the flavor, the mouthfeel was also somewhat lacking in distinction. The liquid was thinner bodied for the style and contained a medium bubbled
carbonation that fluffed up on the palate.

Trillium releases new hoppy beers practically every week, and while some are definitely better than others, most are at least interesting. This beer, however, was simply boring. While there was nothing specifically wrong with it, it simply failed to excite me in any way.

Bronze body on this collab between other half and trillium. Hazy yellow on the edges - much more orange hazy core.

Papaya and mango on the nose - rich smell in a good way. A little acidity there too? Almost but not quite pitty.

The rye does wonders on the taste - initial washes have an almost throwback vibe to popular red hoppy beers of a decade ago. Love how the tropical fruit juice qualities almost overwhelm at first, but a great malt yeast combo pulls it back

Hot damn this is a really nice beer. Very flavorful and not for the faint of heart. But a very nice beer.

L - brooding sunset orange. Actually a pretty good mix of typical Trillium and OH fare. Massive craters in this quickly dissipating head.

S - orange marshmallow. Toasted lemon candies, fresh grains, and herbal woodsiness. Not actual wood, but more like how a forest smells.

T - deep-rooted, verdant, earthy orange and zesty pine. Toasted marshmallow and resiny citrus with a touch of vegetation. Grapefruit pithy bitterness on the finish with a hint of dryness. Dry hops in the form of acidity come out as it warms.

F - full and soft, excellent complement. Medium-low carbonation and a just the right amount of heft. Bit of mealiness thanks to the extra hops.

O - on the darker, toastier side of Trill/OH IPAs, but not in the way a stout might be those things. Loads of candied fruit citrus rind and sweeter, but not sugary flavors. I dig.
