Trillium Summer Street

What the brewers say

“Same distinctive grain bill as the other 'Street' IPAs, but heavily dry hopped with Simcoe. Summer Street IPA bursts with scents of spicy pine, lemon, and grape juice while focused flavors of citrus, pear, and essence of pine wash over the palate.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “There’s a lot going on in the nose—juicy pineapple, mango, orange, and citrus notes, with pine up front and light lemon in the background. The citrus combines with the spice and resinous pine tones, and the overall effect is inviting and intriguing.”

Flavor: “Pineapple and a little spicy pine hit up front, with a light vanilla note mixed with melon and earthy hops. It’s juicy and sweet, but not too sweet, with orange, grapefruit rind, and a little lemon. Good carbonation and a delicate body, with great hops complexity and fruit notes that carry through to the finish.”

Overall: “This is incredibly good—a great treat to the nose. Chewy body, moderate carbonation—a refreshing, juicy, fruity IPA with a slight bitterness in the back that makes for a delicate and distinctive blend of flavors.”
