Trillium Brewing Company Dialed In Sauvignon Blanc

What the brewers say

“A dank, juicy double IPA intensively dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy and fermented with sauvignon blanc juice. The addition of the Galaxy hops in the secondary dry-hop charge provides notes of bright citrus, mango, and overripe pineapple.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big juicy mix of tropical fruit and dank hops, with underlying notes of grass, herb, and spice. White grape, fruit salad, esters, and a pithy rind quality. Rose and iris in the background. Slight cheesiness and funkiness.”

Flavor: “Big tropical juicy hops notes with big juicy grape. Moderate acidity and tannins, with a bit of wine character. Bready malt and low-to-moderate sweetness that’s balanced by moderately high (and lingering) bitterness and dryness.”

Overall: “Excellent juicy quality with an almost seamless blend of fruity hops and actual fruit. There’s fruit sweetness without being cloying and hops bitterness without being harsh. It’s like a big juicy DIPA with a bit of a dank complexity and a bit of a New England bent. Intriguing blend of citrus and bitterness.”
