There’s no better feeling than the wind coursing through your beard and Matt likes to lord that over Dave. Almost as good of a feeling is drinking a beer from Trillium Brewing Co. and we’re drinking three today. Dave recently took a trip to the Canton taproom with an old friend of the podcast, Flex and his better half Mrs. Flex. As we revisit a Trillium beer Matt has previously reviewed, we find out how it stacks up for Dave. We also discuss why podcasts are such a taboo topic to talk about with people and the deep blue seas that are Matt’s eyes. Stay tuned at the end for a caller’s experience with Tree House Brewing Co.
Beer featured in this episode:
Trillium Brewing Co. – Amarillo Dry Hopped Sunshower Super Saison |8.5% ABV|
Sunshower is our Super Saison, a high-gravity farmhouse ale inspired by the ethereal refreshing mid-summer moments when we experience both rainfall and the heat of the sun in New England. Similar to our flagship Trillium, the mouthfeel is light and effervescent with a bright, golden hue. We allow the fermentation temperature to free-rise, resulting in a dry beer with strength and complexity. Layers of pepper and earthy characteristics that play nice with the crisp, smooth backbone of a pilsner and wheat malt bill
Trillium Brewing Co. – Double Dry Hopped Sleeper Street IPA |7.2% ABV|
Utilizing the same grist as Sleeper Street IPA, this iteration has a double dose of El Dorado in the dry hop. Pouring a light amber orange with moderate haze; a huge nose displays sweet mandarin orange, ripe cantaloupe and pineapple with a flourish of pine. Tropical flavors of diced pineapple and grapefruit pith lead the palate with supporting notes of candied citrus, crisp watermelon and pear. As with all of our Street Series IPA’s, Double Dry Hopped Sleeper St. has a soft, biscuity malt backbone with a medium body and a light, enjoyable bite.malt bill
Trillium Brewing Co. – Dialed In Double IPA with Sauvignon Blanc Juice |8.5% ABV|
Brewed in celebration of our Third Anniversary, Dialed-In is a juicy Double IPA intensively dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy. Pouring a vibrant, hazy yellow gold; aromas of fresh squeezed meyer lemon, ripe papaya, lime zest and pineapple swirl around the nose. To enhance depth and complexity of the uniquely fruity white grape flavors provided by Nelson, we introduce Sauvignon Blanc grape juice mid-fermentation. The potent addition of Galaxy hops provide enhanced notes of bright grapefruit, mango, white peach, and pineapple. Soft and creamy with a reserved bitterness, Dialed-In Sauvignon Blanc has a medium-full body with a crisp, dry finish, perfect for celebrating.
