COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
UPPER CASE has a delicate, dry pilsner malt character with a smooth, soft, doughy mouthfeel from the raw wheat, oily hop resin which all serves as a canvas for this twice dry hopped 9% double IPA. Overipe mango, pineapple and passion fruit aromas leap out as the beer is poured. The impression of tropical fruit also takes the lead in the flavor which is layered further by white wine, pine resin and grapefruit zest. Hopped primarily with Mosaic with supporting roles played by Galaxy, Citra and Columbus. We figured there will be considerable interest, so brewed 3 batches!
MALT: Pilsner, Flaked Wheat, C-15, Dextrine, Dextrose
HOPS: Mosaic, Galaxy, Citra, Columbus
The first batch of UPPER CASE will be available on March 21st at 10am. Limit four 25.4/750ml bottles, up to 64oz in growler fills per person.
Batch #2, 20 bbls available draught and bottle 10/3/15.

phaleslu (10899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2018
16 oz. can via local trade. Pours a hazy orange-gold with more yeast sediment forming at the bottom than I'm used to with Trillium and a small white head that settles into a ring and island of film. Notes of weed (especially on the initial aroma, but less so in the flavor and as it warms), tropical fruits (mango, papaya, pineapple), orange and grapefruit citrus, sweet malts, pine resin, wheat, sweet and doughy malts, some oils, and floral zest. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a fruity, sweet, bitter, oily, resinous mouthfeel. Another good one, but not upper tier Trillium.

As NE IPAs go, this one is almost clear--just a light haze to this golden-yellow concoction, which has lots of floating bits. Small to no head. Aroma has tropical and citrus fruit notes. The flavor is pretty dry, with citrus and tropical fruit, some pine-hop bitterness in the background, and a goodly amount of resin. It's a fairly bitter beer on the whole, but tasty nonetheless.

sonnycheeba (6561) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2018
Tap at brewery. Pours hazy light gold. Aroma and flavor are big fruity hop notes, pale malt, faint toast, very faint candi sugar, soft alcohol spice, and nice chewy malt profile to balance out the bitterness. Medium body.

snoworsummer (6285) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2017
Draft at the Canton brewery. Pours opaque gold with a creamy white head. Tastes like resin, lemon, grassy hops, and bready and cookie malt. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like resin, leather, grassy hops, and bready malt.

popway (231) - California, USA - JUL 10, 2017
Cracked the can and a a skunky, peppery aroma is revealed, sits well on the palate, now as it sat the aroma morphed into a backwoodsy fermented leathery scent. Taste is alightly sweet peach, subdued and equalized in the back. A very intriguing offering that happens to rank up there with my favorite Trillium offerings.

RRistow12 (980) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2017
Tasted from can. Pours a hazy gold with white head. Aroma is tropical fruit with lemon. Taste is moderate to heavily bitter. Flavors of lemon, mango, melon, pineapple, resin, caramel. As almost all of Trilliums beer very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can shared at Matt’s. Big hoppy tropical fruit IPA with little malt and a really nice nose.

Foxbush (2142) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2017
16 oz can from the Boston Brewery brought to me by my son for my 2000. The ale poured a cloudy light gold color with a small head and lacing. The aroma of tropical fruit and pine resin. A very complex ale worthy of its high rating. This a brewery I want to visit. The taste was full of grapefruit and hints of lemon. A pleasure to drink. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The higher ABV is very deceptive.

3.6
TimE (6275) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 29, 2017
Very cloudy light amber golden color. Very dry nose with cracker malts and papaya with a touch of citrus. Very light body, slightly dank with decent mouth feel but not so characterful. It was ok.
