Trillium Double Dry Hopped Melcher Street

Posted: November 13, 2016 in American IPA, Reviews, Trillium Brewing Company

This was the other Trillium beer that my parents brought home for me. After trying yesterday’s selection, I was even more excited to crack this one open.

ABV: 7.3%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Our Double Dry Hopped version of Melcher Street; this amped up American IPA features a heavy dose of Mosaic hops. The spicy, resinous, herbal aroma bursts with nuances of tart citrus, tangerine, clementine, and subtle green onion. Bold flavors of under-ripe melon, cantaloupe rind, and pineapple are highlighted with gentle bitterness and delicate, biscuity malt character.”

Random: This beer uses Mosaic and Columbus hops.

This beer poured with a three finger, fluffy, pure white head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was hazy and bright yellow with lots of carbonation. The nose was incredibly. As soon as I cracked the bottle, the room filled with fresh hop scent. I picked up pine needles and lots of tropical fruit, specifically mango and cantaloupe. Then, I get a vegetal scent like basil or green onion. The taste started with the same pine needles and quickly went into juicy, tropical fruit. I got mango, cantaloupe and peach. Then, grapefruit flesh comes through. The green vegetal note in the nose never came through in the taste. The body was juicy and medium thickness with just enough carbonation. The finish was lengthy with tropical fruits. This beer was a gift, so I have no idea of the cost. This beer was awesome. I would highly recommend it.
